For the 2010 model year Kawasaki has given their range-topping muscle bike a comprehensive styling revision and an all-new engine. In fact just about the only thing the 2010 Z1000 shares with the previous generation Z1000 is the name.

Since its introduction the Z1000 has always been an aggressively styled bike which tends to get more admirers than detractors. The new, ultra-angular bodywork and revised styling only serves to enhance the bike's appeal. And in the white/orange and matt-black color scheme pictured here it looks amazing.

The 2010 Kawasaki Z1000 benefits from an all-new 1043 cc, inline 4-cylinder which replaces the previous 953 cc unit. This offers slightly more power than the old engine - with the figures standing at 136 horsepower and 91 lb-ft of torque. The engine has been tweaked to maximise the low and midrange power, at the expense of screaming high-rpm peak power - a decision which should suit the overall characteristics of the bike.

The 2010 Z1000 not only features new looks and new power. The frame itself is all-new and for the first time the Z1000 is equipped with a lightweight aluminium twin-spar frame.
A new horizontally mounted rear monoshock has been fitted which helps lower the seat height, and free up some space around the engine for the new exhaust system.
