We were in the South of France recently enjoying some very English weather aboard Kawasaki’s Z1000SX that has been updated for 2017.

Kawasaki got the mixture right with the original Z1000SX back in 2010 and they’ve just continued to improve the model over the years, culminating with this latest version. The new SX is littered with advanced rider aids, is sharper looking and comfier than before. Kawasaki have simply listened to customer feedback and made small changes which have made a big difference. 


The new model's traction control boasts three modes. Mode 1 and 2 will allow some slip and wheel spin in the wet, but Mode 3 – the most intrusive – has proved invaluable and unflappable all day in the tricky conditions.
