2013 Kawasaki Z1000SX details

The 2013 Kawasaki Z1000SX is basically the Z1000 fighter at core. It gets an array of minor changes and of-course the cosmetic one to make it more appealing for 2013. A newly designed air intake ensures that the 1043cc engine that produces a massive 138 PS of power breathes easy. The riding position is updated to a more relaxed and upright position making it a more comfortable tourer. The speedometer console is a classy mix of analogue and an LCD screen that shows all the basic information. Other positive moves to make it a more able tourer include the addition of a 19L tank and an adjustable wind-shield. The massive dual exhausts and the sharp styling compliment the Z1000SX with some serious aggression. Check out the 2013 Kawasaki Z1000SX gallery for more photographs.
