I saw it at the Dallas show. It was one of the few bikes there that made me wander "Now where would I put some frame sliders". I liked the CB1000R too, and a real surprise was the CBR250. What a neat bike!

I guess I'll ruin it then I'm really getting tired of the goofy looking bikes. This isn't as bad as some but still really goofy looking.

Common sense. So rare it's a god damn super power.

Guess its personal taste........ its definitely not a naked. Looks more like a classic ZX-9R that I grew up with......(maybe thats why I like it)

I have 2 friends with ZX-14's.....have riden them before and they're extrememly comfortable and VERY nice machines.... I just can't get myself to own a bike that heavy that I can't throw around in the twisties. The 2010 Z1000 is a sweet concept --- upright riding position, excellent torquey motor..... just can't get myself to like the look.

Seems to me like the Ninja 1000 is the perfect in-between.


Heres the ZX9-R



Heres the Z1000SX

Its not just a z1000 engine. Its the whole bike. Plus fairings. And hard bags if you want. The nija has clip ons to fit the sport bike stereo type but they have 9 inches of rise above the seat!

This thing is everything the new vfr should have been. crotch rocket looks for us poser americans but with the comfort of a standard. And its a reasonable price. Especially compaired to the vfr. I bet it isn't electronically tamed in the 1st couple gears either like the 1200.

This is another one of those bikes that is awsome in my mind. I wish I could suport Kawi's decision to make this bike but i'm just not in the market for a new ride right now. If I was, this would be at the top of the list.

Not the same ninja. But still interesting. That sucks for those that need their 10R soon so that they can start preping them for next years race season.

I sat on one a few months ago that Kawasaki Canada was touring around for demos. I was disappointed that the bike didn't have that immediate "I'm the bike for you" feel. It was more upright than I thought it would be. It felt similar to the new Yamaha 800. I thought that it would feel like the old, perfect ZX9 or at least the VFR 800. Oh well.

Funny you should say that.....that's the first thing that I thought......that the bars looked a little to high.

From experience I've found that if you pull too much weight bias off the handle bars it's hard to hustle in the tighter stuff.

I'm sure someone will come up with an alternative.

I didn't know anyone still said "bitchin" anymore. But what I don't know is a lot. I will be glad when "sick" goes back to meaning you've been pukeing all night and feel like shit.

Hard to go wrong witha a handlebar, anyone can change a $75 bar. But a bar just wouldn't have looked right with the fairing and bodywork.

Everybody's different.... I need a very narrow between the knees and lots of leg room. I can relate to what the guys have said about sitting on on a new bike and it not feeling quite right. My old 929 is one of the best bikes ever IMHO. But the tank was too fat and not enough legroom. But it was a CBR....

I'll never forget the first time I sat on a Super Duke. My first thought was "how am I going to come up with $13 for one of these things?". (I ended up buying used, 2 years later, after the bubble had burst) But on the other hand, my 599 felt a little "weird" at first. But it is narrow, which is what I need. I soon got used to it. I simply replaced the bar on the 599 because I hate chrome steel bars on my stuff.

At over 500 lbs, that big ol Ninja 1000, actually a 1050, is just too much for me right now. I'm on a "Small and Light" kick. If it weighs much over 400, I'm not much interested. Nice bike, tho. I love Kawies. Hope it makes them some money. I'll wait a couple of years. Maybe buy a nice used one....

A short second to the Kawasaki in my book is still the KTM 990 SM-T, with a claimed WET WEIGHT of around 470. Dump some Akrapovics on it and drop 10-15 pounds.....not to mention the sound and torque of the 990........

My bike is a 2002 ZX9 that I LOVE. Wish I had the money for a new bike, but the old one is definitely a keeper.

When I die I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather did....not screaming in horror like the passengers in the backseat of his car.

The stock Super Duke muffler, which has catalitic converter inside weighed 25 lbs. What an anchor. Don't know what my twin FMF carbon fiber mufflers weigh, but it isn't much. I rolled the SD on a scale this summer with the fuel light on, it was just under 400.

That ninja tho, i LOVE the look, talk about a serious competitor to the vrf1200.

I hope it does not have the same problems as the 10R

For reasons that have not been revealed, Kawasaki has placed the new ZX-10R on a technical hold.
Bikes currently in dealers cannot be sold and bikes already delivered are being taken back from buyers for a full refund.

I went to the Seattle motorcycle show this past weekend and the Ninja 1000 was one of my favorite bikes there. It's naked brother, the Z1000, was another bike that really grabbed my attention. I'd throw on a different handlebar and better looking exhaust on either bike and be happy as hell!

Very unlikely to be related at all. The bikes share very little in part content. Any shared parts would be little things. Like wheel spacers, maybe a sproket. Not to say one of those little things can't cause a recal though. If it had something related Im sure the niga1000 would be stoped also. Sounds pretty seariouse. Hope we can eventually find out what the deal was on the 10R.

Well.. I managed to get almost 200 miles on my 2011 z1000 since I took delivery in mid Nov in spite of all the snow.. I have been able to ride it 5 times total. Not many miles I know, but I am really liking the motor, frame and suspension. It's so similar to the 919 in seating position and feel.. yet so much tighter and more precise. Imagine everything lacking in the 9er fixt. That said, and sharing the same frame, lump and footing as the Ninja 1000, I'd totally buy one if I needed a full dress sport tourer. IMO it's the perfect upgrade for the VFR 800 guys wanting more punch.. Perfect for Busa, zx-14 riders wanting a lighter package. Perfect for naked rider trying to make a sport tourer out of a 1200 Bandit, 919, SV1000, FZ1, zrx, or any other upright seating position bike with no real wind protection. When KMC announced the Ninja 1000, I seriously considered it over the z1000 at only another $500.. probably only would have been $300 more with the discount I managed to get on the zed. Ultimately, I was after a replacement for my 919, which I use in short bursts around town and day trips to twisties... basically as a street fighter. I have a zx-14 to handle the sport tourer duty once a year or so. Didn't make sense to have a zx-14 and Ninja 1000... but it certainly seems to be a perfect mix of a lot of coolness right off the show room floor. The additional gallon of gas over the zed alone makes it a winner for a commute machine tasked on weekends to find back roads and twisty adventures. I fully believe Kawasaki has a winner here and hope it sells well both in USA and in Europe as the z1000sx. The platform it's built on, already has 1 year in the wild and I have read/heard of no major issues with this new 1043cc motor or frame. Add to that, it's nice to look at. In fact, I was considering swapping my z1000 fork covers for the Ninja 1000 front fender. I like seeing forks on bikes. Still on the fence with that one. I am sure the ebony Black fender for the Ninja will bolt right up but would set me back $140 at least.. and just to try it out.. eh.. we'll see? Anyway.. for not having ridden it, or even seeing in the flesh I am a huge fan!

Think Kawasaki right now is kicking some major butt...... with the ZX-6R & 10R for track-days.....the ZX-14 being the BUSA competitor, and now the 2 Zed's for the street......

The company really has it covered.....

A friend that went to the motorcycle show with me was looking for something along the lines of the ST1300, VFR1200, FJ1200... and after looking at all the bikes at the show, he's now completely sold on the Concours 14. We were all surprised that we spent more time looking at Kawasakis than anything else, and if we had to buy a bike before leaving the show, all of us would have picked something from Kawasaki.

I have a buddy with an 08 Concours 14 and he loves it. I rode it once. It's like riding a zx-14 with only the things that are different between the C-14 and ZX-14 changed out. I know that sounds weird.. maybe even obvious.. but it's what I thought the entire time I was riding it. Plusher seat, higher bars, quiet and smooth shaft drive, more faring & windshield. Other than those things it was like riding a zx-14... oh.. with about 20% less power. To qualify this.. I love riding my zx-14, even stretched 6 inches & geared down for drag racing. It's just so smooth and powerful. Eats freeways like they are snack crackers. Mine is 1 down in front and 4 up in rear and I still forget to shift to 6th gear. 6th gear runs the motor at too low of revs at legal speeds... even geared down I mean. For you torque chasers.. it's the shiz! I am sure a busa would deliver the same hit but the smoothness of the zx-14 & the more comfortable seating makes it the more refined choice. Anyway, the C-14 is even smoother and there is so much room on the saddle you could spend months in it touring day in and day out. I might barrow it for a road trip this coming warm season. Want to try it out some more. I'd take his used C-14 over a brand new VFR 1200. That new VFR looks cool and all.. but too much tech. It would be like riding a robot.

Coming from a previous Hayabusa owner..... ya know what I like about the ZX-14?

I'd go out riding with a few friends that had ZX-14's.....we'd be parked somewhere....and people would walk by.... point at my Hayabusa and say..... that right there is the fastest bike on the street.

I like that the ZX-14 hasn't earned the 'Fastest & Deadliest Bike on the Planet' badge.... same goes with the local law enforcement. Every single one of them knows what a Hayabusa looks like.

I haven't sat on one but I like the looks sans the windscreen notches. Would replace the niner if cno. But niner near paid for so......

Yep, when others are cutting lines, kawi and zook are filling in the gaps.

Honda seems just dumb by line comparison.

I love the 919 but this bike looks promising. When i got the 919 it was on a short list with the B-King and Bandit. A faired Z1000 is a nice idea because what I was looking for was a bike with sports bike power and with comfortable ergos. If the 919 had just a little bit more pull up top I'd be perfectly happy with it. I'm starting to find the red line much more often than I'd like to. Same thing happened right before I traded the Katana and found myself always looking for power that wasn't there.
