2011 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 Preview


Building on the success of its Z1000 semi-naked sportster, and series of mid-size street-going Ninjas, Kawasaki has announced a 2011 big-bore amalgamation called the Ninja 1000.

The fully-faired machine is essentially a Z1000 with Ninja bodywork. It will share the Z's counterbalanced engine, six-speed transmission, nearly identical chassis geometry, and upright riding position.

As the latest iteration of a bike first coined with this name in 1986, it will displace 45cc more than the fire-exhaling 998cc ZX-10R, albeit with 11.8:1 compression ratio, instead of 12.9:1. Its bore and stroke is 77.0mm X 56.0mm, compared to the supersport's 76.0mm X 55.0mm.

I'm not sure how I feel about this bike.. I guess if it beats insurance compared to the ZX-10R then its a winning situation.

I do like the style but I dont like the fact that they went from Halogen lights back to regular style. Its like back stepping!

The front end looks like a CBR now, lol!

Either way my favorite bikes, always have been. F'n BRUTES I tell you with the power they have. Would love to take one out for a blast.

Sweet looking ride... Thinking of trading in my ZZR600 for something more passinger friendly and something with more power... Just wondering how comfortable the passinger will be on this thing... looks like a dealership test fit is in order when they are available...
