Kawasaki Z1000 bookings started – Ducati Street fighter, Yamaha FZ1, Suzuki Bandit1200, Honda CB100R, KTM1290 SuperDukeR in trouble
Kawasaki has decided to introduce a spectacularly designed two wheeler to the Indian buyers and is likely to end this year with a bang. Ahead of the Christmas festive sales, Kawasaki is going to introduce the brand new Z1000 performance super bike in the Indian market and the manufacturer is going to launch the vehicle on 23rd December most probably which is just 2 days prior to the Christmas day.
The brand new Kawasaki Z1000 is powered with a 104. CC inline 4 cylinder engine that is capable of generating around 140 bhp of power at the peak along with 110 Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 6 speed manual transmission gear box as standard. The former edition of the model was a bit lighter than the current and it was also slightly slimmer than this upcoming edition. The overall fuel storage capacity of the vehicle has been increased to 17 litres now and the difference in weight among both these editions is around 3 kilograms.
The manufacturer has decided to bring the new Z1000 in the form of CBU (Completely Built Unit) into the Indian market and bookings for the model have already started. The design of the Z1000 is rather unusual and it can be considered completely unique. The shape of the head lights of the super bike is very different than that of other models and we cannot find such design with any other bike in the world. From the past two years, Z1000 has stood as the top motor bike in the European market unconditionally which is highly appreciable.
Z1000 is going to be offered with ABS (Anti Braking System) as standard which is one of the significant features of the model. As per the information, Kawasaki is offering the brand new Z1000 for a price around Rs. 13 lakhs in India and the buyer can have his delivery by paying down payment of just Rs. 5 lakhs initially. Kawasaki is looking forward to deliver all the units booked so far by the end of January next year.
