Kawasaki Wallpaper

The 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 motorcycle was completely redesigned just last year. The Z1000 aesthetic showcase begins with a low-mount front cowl that slopes back radically, with an adjustable instrument cluster featuring a multifunction LCD display covered by a trick-looking orange lens.

The motorcycle headlight represents Kawasaki’s first-ever use of a line-beam unit, the guts of which are integrated nicely into that angled cowl.

The Kawasaki Z1000 also features a wide range of new-think moto technology, including an aluminum frame similar to the ZX-10R that curves over the engine, cradling it from above.

The 2011 Z1000 suspension includes an adjustable 41mm inverted fork up front and a spring preload and rebound damping adjustable horizontal back-link shock is mounted above the swingarm to shield it from exhaust heat and foster an added degree of mass centralization.

The heart of every naked bike is its engine, so Kawasaki engineers paid special attention here for maximum, arm-straightening impact: Dual cams. Sixteen valves. 1,043cc. Liquid cooling. High compression. Six speeds. And digital fuel injection.

This inline-four packs impressive horsepower combined with the sort of flexible, mid-range-heavy power delivery that may paste a silly grin on your face while aboard this motorcycle.

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