2011 Kawasaki Ninja 1000
 
I'm really liking the looks of this bike as a sport tourer. This could be a great al-rounder...

Sounds good on paper

I like the bags, the ergos and the power. MCN loves it, too. How come EU gets ABS, and USA not. Probably because kawasquids don't need no stinking abs (but I do).

agreed
 
Its a nice bike! If I wasn't commited ... I'd get one!

+1, at least as an option...

and they tease us by leaving the ABS sensor boss on the forks....

I'm sold on that bike.
I'm definitely planning on selling my ZZR600 and my V-Strom and replacing them with the Ninja 1k.

Unless somebody comes out with something that can seriously rival this, I'll be on one in 5 years.

saw and sat on it at the IMS. nice option. the front screen is adjustable. very comfy.

If I was 5-10 years younger this would be my zx9r replacement. Sucks when reality sets in.

The ABS option for Honda's CB100R will also not be available in the US.

You referring to this? Not the same engine (I think).

Different bike with completely different engine. Recall (or tech hold as Kawi is referring to it) is for the ZX-10R, not the Z1000-based Ninja 1000.

BikePilot 12-20-2010 02:45 PM

Yep, the current ZX10R is totally and completely different :)

It does look like a lovely bike, but I always wonder why not buy a purebred superbike, add helibars, an aftermarket seat and luggage? Would you not end up with the same touring ability but with much more power and less weight?
