Cool Air System

The Cool Air system routes cool air to the airbox from ducts either side of the fuel tank, minimising performance loss due to heated intake air. This should not be confused with Ram Air, where force-fed air becomes pressurised in the airbox. Positioning the ducts close to the rider allows the intake sound to be enjoyed to the full.


All-new Engine

Liquid-cooled, DOHC, 16-valve 1,043 cm3 In-line four offers a greater power output and stronger torque than the previous Z1000.


Seat Cover

Enhance the sleek, aggressive lines of your Z1000 with a colour-matched cowl for the pillion seat when you’re riding solo.


Fat-type handlebar

New handlebar is rigid-mounted, contributing to the sharper handling. The new handlebar also looks tough, contributing a touch of bad-boy image to the Z1000’s appearance.


LED Tail light

LED taillight design reminiscent of the original Z1000’s features red LED bulbs and a transparent lens.


New adjustable instrument panel

Fully digital instrument panel features an eye-catching orange lens. The instrument panel can be angled to suit rider preference. Riders can choose from three positions with the angle easily changed without tools via an adjuster knob on the left side. Meter functions include digital speedometer, bar-style digital tachometer, odometer, two trip meters, fuel gauge, and clock.

Fully adjustable front fork

With the addition of compression damping adjustability, the Z1000’s 41 mm inverted front forks are now fully adjustable. Settings offer both sporty performance and comfort.


Horizontal back-link

New rear suspension positions the shock unit and linkage above the swingarm. This locates the suspension far enough from the exhaust that operation will not be affected by heat. The new arrangement contributes to mass centralisation. Visible from the outside, the Horizontal Back-link contributes to the cutting edge appearance of the new Z1000. The new rear suspension eliminates the external reservoir tank, however performance is the same or better than that of the 2009 Z1000.


Quad-style muffler

Quad-style mufflers maintain a key design element from previous models. The shorter silencer design (each 2/3 the volume of the 09MY model) allows the wheel silhouette to be seen.


All-new Aluminium Twin-tube Frame

The new aluminium twin-tube frame was designed specifically for the 2010 Z1000. Similar in concept to the frame of the Ninja ZX-10R, the frame beams go over engine, allowing a narrow overall construction that is easy to grip with the knees for added control.


New 5-spoke cast wheels

New 5-spoke cast wheels complement the Z1000’s sharp design. The spokes are machined near the rim edge, adding to the high-quality appearance. The machined cut-outs were purposely designed to point in the reverse direction, a design element also visible on the new engine covers.


Aggressive Styling

The new Z1000 takes the aggressive styling of its predecessor a step forward. From the sharply sloped front cowl design made possible by the new slim line-beam headlamp, to the minimalist tail section, the new Z1000 presents a very condensed, mass-forward image. This dynamic design is reinforced by the front fork covers and wide shrouds displaying intakes for the new Cool Air system.


Brakes

At the front, the Z1000’s 300 mm petal brake discs are gripped by opposed 4-piston radial-mount calipers. A radial-pump front brake master cylinder also contributes to the superb control and feel offered by the new calipers. The rear brake features a single piston, pin-slide caliper gripping a 250 mm petal disc.
