Kawasaki’s hugely popular Z1000SX sports-tourer is getting a host of updates for 2020 including a name change – to 'Ninja 1000SX'.

An ever-present fixture in Britain’s top 10 best-sellers chart since its launch in 2010, it’s had three significant updates since.

Kawasaki have made small improvements for 2020 rather than giving it a complete overhaul.

There’s now a neater, lighter, single end can (instead of the current bike’s ungainly twin silencers), an up-and-down quickshifter, new LED lights, cruise control and also a revamped colour TFT dash.

To help make Kawasaki’s affordable (expect the price to remain around the£10.5K)and now Euro5-friendly sports-tourer even more comfortable over long distances there’s also now a thicker and wider seat, too.

We expect it to arrive in dealers during February 2020. Keep an eye out on MCN for the full review soon.
