The Kawasaki Z1000SX sits neatly between the naked Kawasaki Z1000 and the more track-oriented Kawasaki ZX-10R in the range.

You get a far from sedate 138bhp, 1043cc engine, but you also get creature comforts like a fairing, a comfy seat and a relaxed riding position making it a great option for touring.
One of the highlights of the Z1000SX is that excellent engine, which Kawasaki opted not to detune from the Z1000. The fuelling is silky-smooth and if you feel like making progress there is a nice kick at around 7000rpm, too.
The Z1000SX is the ideal bike if you’re after an engaging and sporty bike without the discomfort and all-out performance of a modern sportsbike.
The Potteries Motorcycles and Scooters say: "This 2011, first-generation Kawasaki Z1000SX is in very good condition all round with just 10,500 miles on the clock. It is a very clean example and there’s no reason why anybody would be disappointed.
"One of the best all-rounders on the market, the Z1000SX has got more than enough power, excellent handling and a relaxed, comfy riding position. We can deliver this bike direct to your door!"
