Kawasaki has launched two new 2014 sports touring models.
The new 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 ABS SE has more power, torque, sharper acceleration, a more exciting induction roar, new forks, better handling, improved brakes and a new handlebar for more relaxed rider ergonomics.
It also has fresh colours and costs only $300 more at $16,799 (+ ORC).
Meanwhile, the Ninja 1000 still costs $16,999 and now comes with the same engine, chassis and brake upgrades as the Z1000, plus Kawasaki’s latest three-mode traction control and a full and low power mode selector.
There are also optional integrated panniers available that will each hold a full-face helmet.
