Stripped off of all unnecessary flourishes, the 2017 Z1000 R Edition is darker, meaner and more beastly than ever. Intensely imbued with Sugomi, this mean machine was designed to inspire awe and commands respect. Powered by a 1,043cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, in line four engine, the Z1000 R Edition was built to conquer lesser riders on the road. Equipped with ABS, coupled by brembo brakes and calipers, the Z1000 R Edition boasts of incredible stopping power than can rival even the strongest superbike.
The Z1000 strips off all unnecessary flourishes to boldly highlight the functionality of its parts. The sculpted bodywork was carefully crafted to bring the aggressive Z design to the next level. The Japanese word sugomi describes the intense aura or energy given off by a person or object of greatness and felt by the viewer. Someone, or something, possessing sugomi inspires awe, leaves an indelible impression, is imposing in stature or ability, and commands respect. In the new Z1000, sugomi is evident both in its fiercely intense design and the exhilarating performance it delivers, radiating as a palpable energy.
Intoxicating Intake Howl
Designed specifically so that acceleration could be enjoyed aurally as well as physically, the carefully crafted auditory note of the intake is a key component of the street riding exhilaration offered by the Z1000. A resonator inside the airbox reduces noise at low rpm, and enhances intake sound at high rpm.
the Z1000 to the next level, high-spec brake components like those found on the Ninja H2R were implemented. The Brembo components featured are the best available for a mass-production model. The high-precision operation delivers brake force linearly, contributing to superb controllability.
Ohlins Rear Suspension
Complementing the enhanced braking performance of the Brembo brakes, high-quality Öhlins rear suspension offers both increased ride comfort and the pride in ownership that comes from the knowledge that your machine is equipped with top-shelf components.
