With the ZX-10R and ZX-6R Ninjas taking care of cutting-edge performance, Kawasaki released the Ninja 1000, a sport bike that caters to motorcyclists seeking comfortable performance.

Kawasaki debuted its “sport bike for the real world” in 2011, and the Ninja 1000 remained relatively unchanged through the years. But for 2014, Kawasaki has revamped the machine, revising its 1043cc inline four, and adding the latest in electronics.

The 2014 Ninja 1000 arrives with the latest ABS, KTRC Traction Control, and two riding modes. The ABS is enhanced by new one-piece mononbloc radial-mounted front brake calipers for more optimal braking.

Kawasaki also added a taller sixth gear for extended mileage on the highways, a new remote rear-spring prelaod adjuster, a new digital instrument cluster, and a redesigned rear subframe that is compatible with Kawasaki’s new optional Quick Release 29-liter hard saddlebags.

To further promote the new Ninja 1000 ABS, Kawasaki released the video attached above. For a First Look Review of the 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 1000, click here.
