Kawasaki India has launched the 2017 Kawasaki Z1000 along with the Kawasaki Z1000 R Edition in the country.
Inspired by the Sugomi design philosophy, the 2017 Kawasaki Z1000 appears as a crouching predator ready to pounce with its sculpted body and the stripped look highlights its brutal functionality. The supernaked bike will be offered in two colour choices – Metallic Spark Black with Golden Blazed Green and Candy Burnt Orange with Flat Ebony.
