Video: Kawasaki Z1000SX first ride - 'compelling blend of power, handling & comfort'

MCN's world first ride on the Kawasaki Z1000SX has proved that the Z1000-based sports bike is everything aging sports bike fans were hoping for.

Looks great. Definitely want one! I don't know if i qualify as an aging sportsbike fan at 27 with a VFR, but this looks my kind of bike! Fazer1000 doesn't really do it for me.

fazer 1000 look alike

the kwak design department have been busy on this one

we need an allrounder  ? that should be able to whip gay riders on BMW1000rr on the twisties , travel to spain when they want and cope with bumpy twisty everyday roads

thats easy lets just copy the best all round bike out their Fazer 1000 and paint it green

Fazer1000 copy?? yeah it does have an i-4 engine, don't think Yamaha invented that. Other then that, yes it does have 2 wheels, a fuel tank, some fairing. It's a sports tourer, what we're you expecting? I really don't think they look alike. This looks like a Kawa no doubt about it. I also think it will sell like hot cakes. Best of both worlds. Can provide a sporty ride yet comfort on long rides.

Yamahas' Fazer have been known to have terrible throttle response and that's the last thing you want with a passenger behind you. You want injection to be super smooth.

Having a turkish

You got laugh, this bike is just a 1989 zx-10 with revised fairing. Not that there's anything wrong with that, the 1989 zx-10 was an awesome bike, and i still have fond memorys of high speed high radius cornering and 'lighting it up' every morning as a turned out of my driveway. This bike has to be a winner.
