The arrival of the all new Kawasaki Z1000 SX Tourer
August 28, 2014

Today with our attention set on the motorbike industry, we take a look into a brand new motorcycle for 2014 from Japanese giant Kawasaki. This all new machine for this year comes in the form of a tourer variant of a hugely successful bike for the manufacturer the Z1000 SX. This all new machine has been marketed under the name of the Z1000 SX Tourer. It is indeed a touring version of the original bike and it shares some similar features and looks of that of the original model that went on sale. Two of the biggest noticeable changes made to this version of the bike are the two luggage carriers that are fitted along the left and right rear side of the machine. Some new changes have also been included as far as the engine and technical specifics are concerned for the bike too.


The power changes and differences compared to that of the original


So with a look into some of the technical specifications of the bike, we see that the Kawasaki brand have included the fitting of a four stroke,liquid cooled engine which power is rapid thanks to the addition of a fuel injection system and oval sub throttles. A digital ignition system along side the electric starter that has been included also come along with the Z1000 SX Tourer as standard. Lightweight materials have also been used this time around with the frame of the bike being made from aluminium. As the standard for Kawasaki machines, expect the bike to come fitted with a six speed transmission system and a slightly increased 19 litre fuel tank capacity too which well help the bike go head to head with other big tourers from the likes of the BMW company and Suzuki with the Hayabusa. Four piston Monoblock brake callipers can also be found on the new Tourer model.

A total of three paint schemes have been confirmed to come along with the bike which will see the Z1000 SX Tourer adopt the classic Kawasaki Lime Green colouring,a Graphite Grey paint scheme and last but not least the addition of the Metallic Black.


Costing options on the Kawasaki ZX 1000 SX Tourer


We are pleased to confirm as stated by Kawasaki, two price ranges are on offer for this new variant the first coming at £9,849 for the standard version of this Tourer. You will however be faced with the option of adding ABS with the motorcycle bringing the price up to the £10,249 region.  Motorbike Easy Gap
