New Kawasaki Ninja 1000 SX

Metallic Graphite Grey

The Ninja 1000SX has character without compromise. Infused with the Ninja spirit craved by discerning solo sportsbike riders, the Ninja 1000SX takes the concept further with SX sport touring versatility to share with a fellow traveler. From traction control to cruise control, the Ninja 1000SX has the tech for the ride.


Bridgestone’s Latest Sport Tyres

Bridgestone Battlax Hypersport S22 tyres contribute to lighter handling, while offering enhanced grip in both dry and wet conditions, which translates to greater rider confidence and enjoyment.

Clean-Mount Pannier System

The mounting system for the accessory panniers allows the panniers to be attached and removed very simply, contributing to increased convenience. Seamlessly integrating the panniers with the rear of the bike, the clean-mount system positions the panniers close to the bike centreline, its clean clutter-free design ensuring the rear of the bike still looks good with the panniers removed.

Exhilarating In-line Four Engine

The powerful 1,043 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-line Four engine pulls strongly from all rpm and does not let up before the redline. The engine delivers superb response, a strong mid-range hit and an intoxicating intake howl – every twist of the throttle rewards the rider with a physically and aurally exhilarating sensation. In addition to cleaner emissions for 2020, a change to Electronic Throttle Valves enables the addition of Electronic Cruise Control, while also contributing to smooth power delivery.

Excellent Wind Protection

Wind protection afforded by the full-fairing bodywork is complemented by a new windshield with four available positions. As before, the windshield is adjustable by hand (without tools).

Smartphone Connectivity

A Bluetooth chip built into the instrument panel enables riders to connect to their motorcycle wirelessly. Using the smartphone application “RIDEOLOGY THE APP,” a number of instrument functions can be accessed, contributing to an enhanced motorcycling experience.

Electronic Cruise Control

Kawasaki’s cruise control system allows a desired speed to be maintained with the simple press of a button. Once activated, the rider does not have to constantly apply the throttle. This reduces stress on the right hand when traveling long distances, enabling relaxed cruising and contributing to a high level of riding comfort.


TFT Colour Instrumentation

The compact new all-digital TFT colour instrumentation gives the cockpit a high-tech, highgrade appearance. The new meter also offers additional features unavailable on the previous model.

KQS (Kawasaki Quick Shifter)

Complementing the Ninja 1000SX’s exhilarating engine character, the quick shifter enables clutchless upshifts and downshifts for seamless acceleration and quick and easy deceleration.

Single-Sided Muffler

All-new exhaust 1 system has a 4-into-2-into pre-chamberinto- 1 arrangement, contributing to the Ninja 1000SX’s enhanced sporty looks. The singlesided muffler arrangement saves approximately 2 kg in weight.

Composed, Sporty Handling

The Ninja 1000SX’s highly rigid aluminium frame offers a high degree of mass centralisation, offering a balance of agility and firm handling. The bike responds quickly to rider input, while offering an excellent ability to soak up bumps and ruts. Highly composed, the Ninja 1000SX’s superb straight-line stability and its planted feeling in corners make it easy to spend long hours in the saddle.

Sportier, More Dynamic Styling

Revisions to the fairings, and an all-new single-sided muffler give the Ninja 1000SX sportier, more dynamic styling that reflects its sport riding potential and contributes to a stronger Ninja family image. All-LED lighting adds a highclass touch.

Increased Seat Comfort

The thicker, wider rider and passenger seats deliver increased comfort, facilitating longer hours in the saddle. The rear seat cushion is wider than its base, offering a greater surface area. Furthermore, a host of accessory seat options are available to cater to rider and passenger needs and preference.
