MCN has been testing the new Kawasaki Z1000SX against one of its closest rivals, the Yamaha Fazer 1000.
The new Z1000SX is based loosely on the naked Kawasaki Z1000, and MCN's Adam Child was impressed when he rode the bike at the launch in Spain. Adam reckons the bike is the perfect mix of comfort and sportiness.
The new Kawasaki proved a hit with Motorcycle Live show-goers last week, where it was revealed publicly for the first time.
Here's how the two bikes' key specifications compare
