I'm guessing with the change to the exhaust, they shaved off a good 50 lbs. Looks good. Looks like they're taking a bit more from the ZX-10R frame design too.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

10-r motor has pretty much been confirmed I likey!


"According to MotoRevue, Kawasaki plans to revamp their Z 1000 streetfighter, which will be soon presented. The bike is supposed to be powered by the latest ZX-10R engine, replacing the one developed from the much older ZX-9R. The extra horsepower and torque sure has to be celebrated with a radical, even sharper design and this rendering by Jérôme Vannesson shows just how the next generation model might look. We can only hope it will do so."
