Ninja 1000 Video Review

In this official Kawasaki video, Ultimate Motorcycling’s Publisher and President Arthur Coldwells and other motorcycle journalists review the 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 1000.

The all-new Ninja 1000 has impressed many in the moto-journalism world, including Coldwells.

In a review Coldwells wrote for, he explains how the 2011 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 was built for both performance and ultimate comfort.

Arthur Coldwells says: "Make no mistake, Kawasaki’s new Ninja 1000 is a sportbike. With credentials such as fully adjustable suspension, radial petal-rotor brakes and a 1000cc engine that produces as much torque as Kawasaki’s new ZX-10R (and a full 65-percent more than the ZX-6R), the Ninja 1000 relishes fast-paced, aggressive riding."

"But, having said that, the Ninja 1000’s comfortable ergonomics, full fairing with adjustable windscreen, broad, comfortable seat, and a stellar motor that seems to deliver any amount of power, anytime you ask for it, make the Ninja 1000 a superb real-world machine perfect for the road."

When designing the all-new Ninja, Kawasaki started with the frame, engine and suspension of the Z1000 super-standard, a bike that’s been well received by both the press and customers alike.

Kawasaki says using the Z1000s new-think engine and chassis package as a starting point, engineers added radical, knife-edged bodywork along with a host of cool features that push the Ninja 1000’s performance, capability and flexibility envelopes to amazing heights.
