2018 Kawasaki Ninja® 1000 ABS
Metallic Spark Black/Metallic Graphite Gray
The Dream Combination
Modern aggressive styling with sharp and edgy lines makes it unmistakably Ninja®. The ultimate sport tourer infused with superbike technology makes it the Ninja 1000 ABS motorcycle. From the daily urban commute to back roads and 2-up touring, the Ninja 1000 ABS offers open-class thrills, everyday comfort and enhanced touring performance.
- Sharp Ninja® Styling: Front and side fairings with harder, sharper and edgier lines provide modern styling and improved wind protection; Front and rear turn signals are more integrated, contributing to the modern updated sportbike image; Dual LED headlights are lower profile and feature low and high beams that offer excellent brightness; Chin spoilers similar to those on the Ninja H2 and Ninja ZX-10R models strengthen the resemblance
- Power & Handling: Take on the streets with legendary Ninja® performance.
- All-Day Comfort: 5–position clutch lever can be adjusted to suit the size of the rider’s hands based on rider preference; Wider seat for the rider provides greater support and comfort while the longer, more thickly padded passenger seat helps prevent the passenger from sliding forward, providing enhanced comfort; Ergonomically sculpted passenger grips are easy to hold and naturally positioned; Adaptable, relaxed upright riding position is comfortable and optimized to accommodate a full range of riding situations
- Everyday Convenience: Mirrors are positioned 20mm farther outward and have a greater range of movement, offering easier adjustability; Digital display meter adds a gear position indicator, shift up indicator lamp and needle, LCD screen negative display, air temperature gauge as well as indicators for the IMU and KIBS; Clean-mount side case system allows KQR™ side cases* to be attached and removed easily for added convenience; DC power outlet (knock out) in dash area enables the addition of a DC power outlet to power devices/accessories* (*Sold separately as Kawasaki Genuine Accessory)
- Next Level Technology: Key enhancements bring Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) WorldSBK championship-proven electronics management technology to the Ninja® 1000 ABS sportbike. This results in precise chassis orientation awareness that helps the rider adapt to a range of typical riding conditions and scenarios.
