Review: 2013 Kawasaki Superbike Z1000

The Kawasaki Z1000 attracts riders with its muscular good looks and then seduces them with its incredible power and charismatic feel. 

Serious torque, comfortable ergonomics, and a mesmerizing aesthetic make for an unforgettable experience.

The satisfaction begins even before you climb aboard. Its distinctive look begins with a front cowl that slopes back radically, highlighting the Z’s aggression. 

The line-beam headlights are integrated nicely into that angled cowl. Then its shapely fuel tank is flared on the sides for serious knee grip and is slimmer in back for a snug fit. 

The seat is low and narrow at the front to make ground contact easy, and flows beautifully rearward to end in a futuristically retro LED tail light behind a red lens. The muscular aesthetic will definitely turn heads wherever the Z1000 takes you.

Kawasaki engineers paid special attention to this bike’s heart, for maximum impact: dual overhead cams, sixteen valves, 1,043cc, liquid cooling, a high compression ratio, a long 56mm stroke for instantaneous thrust, Six speeds, and Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®)

From nearly any rpm, rolling the Z1000’s throttle provides the kind of instant gratification most sportbikes just can’t quite muster, all with a silky smooth, highly intoxicating response.
