2011 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 | Quick Look

2011 Kawasaki Motorcycle

Comfortable ergonomics on a faired superbike? Yes, it seems to be true for Kawasaki in 2011. If you like upright bikes, but don’t like naked bikes, then the all-new Ninja 1000 will be just the ticket.

Essentially Kawasaki’s futuristically styled (and polarizing) Z1000, but with a full fairing and conventional looks, the Ninja 1000 promises to be a real-world superbike for the street.

The 41mm male-slider forks and 300mm petal brake rotors handle the braking, while power comes from a 1043cc, DOHC, liquid- cooled, 16-valve long-stroke inline-four.
