The newest addition the CBU lineup from Kawasaki, Z1000, has arrived in Malaysia. We have just write about the spyshot yesterday. This is the update many riders are waiting for. The styling is based from the Sugomi design that refers to a predator ready to pounce its prey. Priced at RM76,900, this could be the one of the best naked 1,000cc you can buy.
Also introduced is the Ninja 1000 (or Z1000SX in Europe) with price of RM82,900. You can opt for full pannier version of the Ninja 1000 at RM87,900. All price is basic price.
A spy picture of a 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 has been spotted in Malaysia by GearJahat. This could mean that the launch is very soon. I think that this streetfighter bike category will be heavily contested by other makes too. If it is launched, we need to see whether the price will be a good price for its size. Also seen in the picture is the Z1000SX.

It is like a panther looking down its prey ready to pounce. The body extends downwards and the shoulder fairing that shows its muscle.
