Kawasaki introduced the Z1 (900) motorcycle in 1972 as the first of the Kawasaki Z series. Four years later they introduced the Kz900. The original Z1 was the first series of Japanese motorcycles with the combination of four cylinders, dual overhead cams and 903 cc.
The Z1000 was redesigned for 2010. Along with the customary styling update came a slightly larger capacity engine. The motorcycle was officially marketed as the “Z1000 ABS” as ABS came fitted as standard.
In 2013 Kawasaki broke with the 3 year update cycle and choose to release a “special edition”, alongside the standard edition, to mark the 40th anniversary of the Z brand. The differences between the models were purely aesthetic.
The Z1000 was restyled and updated for 2014 making slightly more power and front brake caliper are 4 piston monoblock. Also a big piston Showa separate function fork along with lighter wheels and a slightly larger gas tank.
