Video: New Kawasaki Z1000SX first ride

Kawasaki’s underrated Z1000SX sports-tourer may have arrived quietly in 2010, but thanks to its blend of Z1000 fun, ZX-10R performance, upright comfort and impressive value, it’s proven a big hit.

One in three Kawasakis sold in the UK is now an SX – and it just got even better!

This new model is expected to retail in the UK at £9299 in standard trim, and at £9699 for the ABS-equipped model. The panniers are an optional extra, which can be added for £500 ‘at birth’, or for £800 as a retro-fit option. See for confirmed prices soon.
