General information about the 2013 Ninja 1000 and Ninja 1000 ABS

The 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 delivers a great mix of adrenaline, power and agility. Like any respectable sport motorcycle, the 2013 Ninja 1000 comes with an aerodynamic style that betrays its sporty pedigree. You also get a racy riding position which helps you merge with the bike without compromising the comfort of your spine.

This metallic Japanese monster is propelled by a four-stroke, liquid-cooled, online four, DOHC, 1043 cc engine with four valves per cylinder. The engine features a smooth-shifting six-speed gearbox with ideal ratios which helps you control the entire power effortless.

Despite the edgy, rakish look, the bodywork carves a surprisingly large hole in the atmosphere, giving riders a quiet cocoon in which to work. A manually adjustable, 3-position windscreen helps, allowing riders to pick just the right setting for their height and riding style. Faired-in front turn signals, a zx-6r-spec front fender, a stylish tail-section and a full-featured instrument panel right off the ninja zx-6r (with custom graphics, of course) complete the look.
