2014 Kawasaki Z1000 Naked Streetfighter

Posted by Nicholas Schmidt on 1/30/2015 to Motorcycle News
2014 Kawasaki Z1000 Streetfighter
For years now I have been saying that riding Naked is the only way. It seems that some of the motorcycle companies have listened, with more and more of them coming out with naked bikes and more upright riding positions. We like to think of it as a Streetfighter. the Streetfighter scene or Naked bikes as the US calls them, were born out of the need to simply and make our bikes our own.
In the early 90's the bike to convert into a streetfighter was the early GSXR's. These bike lend them to being stripped down to the bare minimum while still being asthestically pleasing to the eye. As the sportbike scene grew, more and more bike were being covered up by plastics. Several companies saw the naked bike market early on with the introduciton of the Ducati Monster, Suzuki SV650 & SV1000, Kawasaki Z1000 and the Yamaha FZ-1.
This new 2014 Kawasaki Z1000 is bringing back the naked bike with a vengeance. With it's aggressive styling, sportbike like handling and the power of a liter bike, yuo can bet this is one hell of a bike. Be sure to go check it out and even test ride one if you can.
