The 2014 Streetfighter gets many updates cosmetically as well as mechanically. The most obvious change to the Z1000 is that it gets a new headlight assembly which is an LED spec unit and is the first from any Japanese manufacturer. The 2014 Z1000 looks very mean and aggressive due to Kawasaki's new Sugomi styling. The new Kawasaki Z1000 is powered by a 1043cc inline-four liquid-cooled engine that churns out 140 bhp @ 10000rpm and a torque of 111 Nm @ 7300rpm. The motorcycle makers have revised the ECU settings, made changes to the camshaft timings, fitted a new air box and have connected the cylinders to reduce pumping losses. The Z1000 gets a big piston fork that offers lightweight and excellent wheel control and also gets one piece monobloc radial-mount front brake calipers that offers superior braking. Kawasaki Z1000 also gets a new analog plus digital instrument cluster including a large tachometer and a digital display that offers information on current bike conditions and settings.
Kawasaki Z1000 is available only in one colour - Golden Blazed Green. Kawasaki Z1000 competes Honda CB 1000R, Yamaha FZ1 and BMW S1000R.
