Sharp Ninja Styling

All-new bodywork includes a much sharper front cowl with a decidedly closer resemblance to Kawasaki’s Ninja supersport models. The more aggressive visage is complemented by fierce new LED headlamps. The dynamic and sporty bodywork reflects the Ninja 1000’s exciting street riding potential.

Engine tuning focused on the feeling the rider gets when opening the throttle. Strong torque is complemented by direct throttle response. Revised engine settings offer even smoother power delivery and cleaner emissions.

A choice of Full Power or Low Power modes allows riders to set power delivery to suit preference and conditions. The right power at the right time.

slide 2

Display functions include: odometer, dual trip meters, remaining range, current and average fuel consumption, external temperature, coolant temperature, clock, Economical Riding Indicator, Large analogue tachometer flanked by warning lamps on one side, a gear position indicator and multi-function LCD screen on the other. Stylish and easy to read.

The Cool Air system routes cool air to the airbox from ducts at the front of the side fairings, minimising performance loss due to heated intake air. This is a feature for rider comfort on the 2017 Ninja 1000.

slide 4

The Ninja 1000 is equipped with KCMF (Kawasaki Cornering Management Function), Kawasaki’s latest IMU-enhanced electronics package. On the Ninja 1000, KCMF oversees the following systems: KTRC (including traction and wheelie control), KIBS (including pitching and corner braking control)

slide 5

Using the latest evolution of Kawasaki’s advanced modelling software and feedback from a compact Bosch IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) that gives an even clearer real-time picture of chassis orientation, KCMF monitors engine and chassis parameters throughout the corner – from entry, through the apex, to corner exit – modulating brake force and engine power to facilitate smooth transition from acceleration to braking and back again, and to assist riders in tracing their intended line through the corner.

slide 6

Kawasaki’s supersport-grade high-precision brake management system take into account the particular handling characteristics of supersport motorcycles, ensuring highly efficient braking with minimal intrusion during sport riding. KIBS also incorporates corner braking control, modulating brake force to counter the tendency of the bike to stand up when braking mid-corner.

slide 7

Dual LED headlamps (each featuring low and high beams, as well as a LED position lamp) offer excellent brightness. On the low-beam setting, lateral illumination is 1.3 to 1.5 times brighter, with a wider light projection area; on the high-beam setting, forward projection distance increases 1.4 times - compared to the previous year model.

slide 8

The rider and passenger seats deliver touring comfort. The passenger seat is filled with urethane padding and a design that swells at the front (25 mm thicker) to help keep tandem riders from sliding forward.. Dampers on the underside of the seat help reduce vibration. Ergonomically sculpted passenger grips are easy to hold and are naturally positioned.
