2011 BEST NAKED BIKE KAWASAKI Z1000

By • May 16th, 2011 • Category: ! Daily Info & Reviews, Vehicles


Kawasaki’s Z1000 has undergo completely redesigned in 2010. The 1000cc naked bike is a base to the latest ninja 1000. the performance of Z1000 is outstanding and being awarded as th best naked bike of the year. The quality, performance and design has push a limit, the ninja Z100 new features and spec could be view below.  It’s a realization that comes after just a mile or two in the saddle, and it’s one that confirms the fact that this motorcycle’s design team worked a special bit of magic during development.

2011 BEST NAKED BIKE KAWASAKI Z1000

The aesthetic showcase begins with a low-mount front cowl that slopes back radically, highlighting the Z’s prow and, behind it, an adjustable instrument cluster featuring a multifunction LCD display covered by a trick-looking orange lens. The headlight represents Kawasaki’s first-ever use of a line-beam unit, the guts of which are integrated nicely into that angled cowl. Moving rearward, you come to a shapely fuel tank that’s flared on the sides to let you grab it with your knees and that’s trim at the back for a snug fit.

The seat is low and narrow at the front to make ground contact easy, and flows beautifully rearward to end in a futuristically retro LED taillight behind a red lens. It’s a thoroughly athletic shape, one sure to garner attention wherever it’s ridden.
 
Totally redesigned just last year, the Z features a wide range of new-think moto technology, including an aluminum frame similar to the ZX-10R’s that curves over the engine, cradling it from above. The design allows a narrow mid-section, which fosters a high degree of rider comfort and feedback in addition to keeping weight low and chassis rigidity high.

The engine bolts solidly to the frame in three places, stressed-member-style, and there’s also a rubber mount at the upper rear crankcase area for added vibration damping and torsional rigidity. The main frame and swingarm pivot elements are cast as a single unit, with welds eliminated wherever possible for a more aesthetically pleasing look. And the subframe is a lightweight aluminum die-casting, which is light, smooth and beautiful.

Suspension at both ends is thoroughly modern and wickedly functional: a beefy, fully adjustable 41mm inverted fork up front and a spring preload and rebound damping adjustable horizontal back-link shock is mounted above the swingarm to shield it from exhaust heat and foster an added degree of mass centralization. Wheel control is simply superb, and the substantial feedback sent to the rider makes it easy to know exactly what’s going on at the bike’s contact patches.

The heart of every naked bike is its engine, so Kawasaki engineers paid special attention here for maximum, arm-straightening impact: Dual cams. Sixteen valves. 1,043cc. Liquid cooling. High compression. A long stroke – 56mm – for instantaneous thrust. Six speeds. And digital fuel injection. It’s all there.

The result? This inline-four packs impressive horsepower combined with the sort of flexible, mid-range-heavy power delivery that pastes a silly grin on the face of anyone lucky enough to be aboard. From nearly any rpm, rolling the Z1000’s throttle provides the kind of instant gratification most sportbikes just can’t quite muster, all with silky smooth, highly intoxicating response.

There’s more, of course. Check out the Z’s five-spoke wheels, with spokes machined near the rims for a custom look. We carried forward the quad-pipe theme from the last Z1000 (and the first Z-1), but an under-engine pre-chamber lets engineers use shorter mufflers for great looks and better mass centralization. A solid-mount handlebar and aluminum footpegs lifted from the Ninja ZX-10R contribute to the Z1000’s quality, top-shelf feel. Brakes? Totally modern: Radially mounted calipers, Ninja-spec 300mm petal-type rotors and a radial-pump master cylinder all provide the latest in braking feel and feedback.
Kawasaki Z1000 has beats many to be ‘Best Naked Bike” honored in Motorcyclist Magazine’s 2010 of Motorcycle of the Year Awards. The Z1000s balance of power, comfort, handling and practicality earned it the top spot in its category. Here’s what the staff at Motorcyclist had to say about the Kawasaki Z1000:

“Armed with compliant suspension, admirably powerful brakes and humane
rider accommodations, Kawasaki’s maximum minimalist gets down to the
business of pleasure much closer to legal speeds.”

“Optimal adrenal stimulation comes online well below the five-figure revs and
triple-digit speeds where razor-sharp supersports do business.”

“From that all-new 1043cc inline-four to the equally new aluminum-spar
skeleton, everything about it transcends standard equipment.”

“One trip past 7,000 rpm will make you forget all about the original Z.”

“…this is no dumbed-down naked compromise.”

“Broad bars, quick steering and a broader spread of power make it equally
adept at everything from Sunday-morning scrapes to urbane jungle warfare.”

So in 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 key features, they has highlight the best:
• 1,043cc inline-four with DFI produces a massive amount of torque
• 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 300mm discs to provide superior stopping power
• Digital instrument panel tilts to accommodate different viewing angles
• Aggressive styling makes a bold fashion statement
