1,043 cc inline-four with DFI® produces massive power with an intoxicating howl
Lightweight aluminum frame specifically designed for the Z1000
Fully adjustable inverted front fork with settings designed for sporty performance
Horizontal rear monoshock features stepless rebound damping and spring preload adjustability
Radial-mounted four-piston front brake calipers and radial-pump front brake master cylinder combine with 300 mm discs to provide superior stopping power
Digital instrument panel tilts to accommodate different viewing angles
Aggressive styling makes a bold fashion statement
DOHC, 16-valve, 1,043 cc Engine
Liquid-cooled inline-four offers substantial power at all rpm levels, providing effortless acceleration in almost any situation
Bore and stroke dimensions of 77 x 56 mm offer the best possible balance of peak power and low and mid-range flexibility
38 mm downdraft throttle bodies allow intake air to travel to the engine in the shortest possible distance
Oval sub-throttles help keep the engine slim – a good thing since the throttle bodies are positioned between the rider’s knees
Soft rev limiter provides good overrev character; power doesn’t drop off suddenly at high rpm
The crankshaft is positioned low in the crankcase assembly to allow a longer stroke without adding engine height
A secondary balancer, driven off a gear on the sixth web of the crankshaft, eliminates excess vibration
Cool Air System
The intake system routes cool air to the airbox from ducts above the radiator shrouds, minimizing performance loss due to heated intake air
Positioning the ducts close to the rider allows the intake sound to be heard – and enjoyed – by the rider
A resonator inside the airbox reduces noise at low rpm, and enhances intake sound at high rpm
The exhaust system features a 4-into-2-pre-chamber-into-2 layout. Silencer end caps maintain the quad-style image.
Main and pre-catalyzers provide cleaner emissions
Thanks to the under-engine pre-chamber, silencer volume is reduced, and silencer weight is low. Exhaust system offers excellent mass centralization and contributes to a low center of gravity.
Slim-type fuel pump features an integral fuel gauge
Fuel tank design and slim-type fuel pump minimize unused volume inside the tank; fuel capacity is 4 gallons
Aluminum Backbone Frame
Aluminum backbone frame designed specifically for the Z1000 (and similar in concept to the Ninja® ZX™-10R’s) helps make the bike narrow and easy to grip with the knees for maximum rider comfort and feedback
Lightweight and highly rigid, the frame uses the engine as a stressed member for a firm, planted feeling and enhanced stability
Frame is tuned to transmit the ideal level of engine feedback directly to the rider
The frame’s five-piece construction consists of steering stem, left and right main frames, and two cross pieces. The two main frame components have open C-shaped cross sections.
As much as possible, welds were eliminated for simplicity and appearance. The frame beams and swingarm brackets are now single die-cast pieces.
The frame uses four engine mounts; three mounts are rigid, while the upper rear crankcase mount is rubber
The rear sub-frame is a three-piece aluminum die-casting construction, which is light, strong and optimizes mass centralization
The sub-frame is an example of form and function combined, negating the need for side covers and allowing underseat narrowness for a shorter reach to the ground
Horizontal Rear Monoshock
Rear suspension design positions the shock unit and linkage above the swingarm where it’s less exposed to exhaust heat and contributes to mass centralization
Visible from the outside, the horizontal monoshock contributes to the Z1000’s aggressive appearance
Linkage characteristics are the same as those of a standard Uni-Trak® rear suspension: Wheel movement versus shock stroke is the same ratio
The shock features stepless rebound damping and spring preload adjustability
Fully Adjustable Fork
The Z1000’s 41 mm inverted fork is adjustable for compression damping, rebound damping and spring preload – and is protected from harm by a cool-looking shroud
Settings are designed for both sporty performance and excellent comfort
Handlebar, Grips and Footpegs
The tubular handlebar is rigid mounted, contributing to sharp, direct handling
A wide, flat bend handlebar offers a design similar to those on off-road bikes for excellent control
Tapered-type grips, like those used on supersport models, offer a more direct feel
Ninja ZX-10R-style footpegs with knurled surfaces offer good grip, direct feel and control, and no-nonsense looks
The passenger footpeg brackets incorporate convenient luggage hooks
The Z1000’s 300 mm front petal-style brake discs are gripped by opposed four-piston radial-mount calipers. (caliper piston size is 4 x 30 mm)
A radial-pump front brake master cylinder contributes to the superb control and feel offered by these high-end calipers
The rear brake is a single-piston, pin-slide caliper gripping a 250 mm petal-style disc. The caliper is mounted below the swingarm, and located by a torque rod.
A distinctive tilting instrument panel with multifunction LCD display behind an orange lens covers all systems
