Kawasaki is harking back to the useable superbikes like the GPZ900 and ZZR1100 with a faired Z1000S version of the 1043cc Z1000 naked bike for 2011.

The bike is based around the Z1000 but has a full fairing and according to insiders it also has an adjustable windscreen and will have a range of accessories aimed at making it a much more accomplished touring machine. In keeping with other bikes in this category this will almost certainly mean hard panniers, top box and other accessories.    

This image of the new bike has been discovered by MCN on an online site where intellectual property rights register the design of the bike and prohibits copying. MCN found the images which are shown only in low resolution and in black and white, before colouring them in and making them fit for publication.

Read the full story in this week's MCN, on sale Wednesday 30 September.
