Evolving from the Z1000SX, which frequently topped the sales charts in several European markets, the recently launched Ninja 1000SX ably demonstrated that the best can indeed get better. Adding the zest of the Ninja personality to the basic SX package has led to an uplift in dynamic engine and chassis performance, without losing the enviable touring capability, which initially established a new category of machine in the litre class.
Tech-wise, a TFT meter panel and advanced traction control feature alongside electronic cruise control plus a quick shifter as well as a clever integrated braking system and cornering management, all designed to facilitate hours of fulfilling saddle time whether that be long distance touring or hard core sport riding.
Available in three colourway options for 2021, riders can choose between Metallic Carbon Gray / Metallic Diablo Black, Emerald Blazed Green / Metallic Diablo Black / Metallic Graphite Gray or Metallic Moondust Gray / Metallic Diablo Black. And in each case match the desired colour to one of three Editions.
The Ninja 1000SX Performance Edition adds frame sliders, a smoke windscreen, a gel tank pad, a colour coded seat cover plus the sporty sound and extra performance of an Akrapovič exhaust.
Marking the fifth generation of a successful sport touring platform, the Ninja 1000SX Tourer Edition adds a 2x 28L integrated pannier system that is colour-matched to the body of the bike and can be conveniently locked with the ignition key. A larger windscreen is fitted for even more comfort; while the GPS bracket lets you mount your system of choice.
The third of the trio of Edition options is the Ninja 1000SX Performance Tourer Edition adding a colour coded 2x 28L integrated pannier system, heated grips, frame sliders, a large smoke windscreen, a GPS bracket, a gel tank pad, a colour coded seat cover plus the sporty sound and extra performance of an Akrapovič exhaust.
Time and distance will continue to be an abstract concept for Ninja 1000SX riders as they choose a destination and decide how long they would like to take to get there. Motorway blasts or country road tours, the Ninja 1000SX in all its new liveries and guises is set once more to deliver the ultimate combination of Sports thrills and Touring practicality.
Prices for each machine will be announced at a later date.
