Bajaj Auto today launched the 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 and the 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 in Pune, Maharashtra. This story covers the new Z1000.

The new Z1000 had its world premiere at the International Motorcycle Exhibition (EICMA) in Milan, Italy, in November this year. Kawasaki says that the motorcycle highlights their new ‘Sugomi’ design language, though it retains the same frame as its predecessor.

The new Z1000 is powered by a 1,043 cc, four-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid-cooled engine, producing 140 hp at 10,000 rpm and 110 Nm of torque at 7,300 rpm. The naked street bike features a 6-speed gearbox. The same engine is also used in the new Ninja 1000, which has also been launched in India today.

Kawasaki engineers have enlarged the fuel tank of the new Z1000 by 1.51 liters (now at 17 liters), and ABS comes as part of the standard equipment list. Thanks to these revisions, the new Z1000 weighs 2.72 kg more than the older model.
