    Q. What is the difference between Ninja 1000 and Z1000?
    • The Kawasaki Ninja 1000 is the Japanese brand’s litre-class sports tourer. It features a fully faired bodywork akin to a supersport motorcycle. However, the ergonomics are comfortable enough for both city riding and relaxed touring. Powering this bike is a liquid-cooled, 1043cc, inline-four engine that produces 142PS at 10,000rpm and 111Nm at 7300rpm. It gets Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC), Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS), Power Mode, Kawasaki Corner Management Function (KCMF). Which gives it track ready bike abilities. Whereas Kawasaki Z1000 is a naked racer that is very good for city stiff riding Z1000 has some of the top line racing features such as Aluminium Twin-tube Frame, Intoxicating Intake Howl, Assist & Slipper Clutch SFF-BP (Separate Function Fork)etc. Our suggestion is if a is highway riders who torus a lot then you can go for the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 whereas if you wanted a daily ride motorcycle for city runs so you can go for the Kawasaki Z1000. But before the final decisions suggest you take a test drive of both the vehicles to understand the power and comfort better. Read more.
