New Kawasaki ZR1000!

The new Kawasaki ZR1000 will be on the market soon.
It's a really interesting bike with the ZX9 engine and I think it looks great!
What do you guys think?

Ha ha, good job ZX11heaven!
I don't think they will leave these ugly mirrors on for production, they look like the ZX12 ones.

Talking Z1000

this bike looks amazing, I bought a 2002 ZX9R this year and after 12,000 km I traded for a '99 ZRX 1100 just for the pure fun factor and holganism potental. Alot of people just thought I was nuts for the switch but I was blown away that Kawasaki puts out a bike that is the comabanation between the two! Life is good but it's only going to get better... GREAT TIME TO BE ALIVE

Note to self, all pictures from 11heaven are to be viewed with at least some suspicion.

You people with the photoshop skills can get some wild rumors going on the net.

And BTW, I'd take ugly mirrors cause the somewhat good looking ones never are worth a ^%$$^. I ride in dense traffic and would gladly give up some style points for a better idea of what the people behind me are doing.


Great looking bike too IMO. Is that one coming to the US, anyone?

Repeal helmet laws, they only protect people we most likely don't need in the gene pool any way!

hey apexis,
I just got my new mirrors for my cb750, they are bar end mirrors and look cool, atleast I think so, got them for $30 off ebay, they are much better visually then my old stalk mirrors. slap those bad boys on that bike and it would be nice

But that's just me.

This bike looks awesome in black/red, but sh*tty in orange, which are the 2003 colours for it.

But at USD8499 you will pay $600 more for it than the ZRX1200. Honda sell the 919 for about USD6000 in Oz, a grand less than the ZRX1200. So will a naked ZX-9 sell better than a naked 'blade for $2500 more? Doubt it.
