2007 Kawasaki Z1000

Looks pretty damn good, literally much more polished and sleeker than the current model. Except... the ugly exhaust, it seems the designer these days our always messing up aesthetically on this end. Good thing there are aftermarkets.




Those in the know should notice it has some very Gundam-esque quality in its design.

That's a hot bike, except for the tuba-for-exhaust cans. I've always loved the Z1000.

^^ I dont think you're the only one. What's even sweeter is that they're dumping the ZX-9r mill for ZX-10R, whichever year, it's going to be good.

Is there some sort of Nobel prize in place for engineering the most ugly exhaust system? Seems Suzuki and Kawasaki are really working on it.
