The Kawasaki Z1000 is a four-cylinder motorcycle in the streetfighter or standard style. It was first introduced as a successor to the early-1970s Z1 and Z900 machines. Kawasaki introduced the Z1 (900) motorcycle in 1972 as the first of the Kawasaki Z series. Four years later they introduced the Kz900. The original Z1 was the first series of Japanese motorcycles with the combination of four cylinders, dual overhead cams and 903CC (55.1 cu in). In 1977 a Z1 ridden by Reg Pridmore became the first Japanese bike to win an AMA Superbike national when it took the victory at Pocono Raceway. Pridmore went on to win both the 1977 and 1978 US Superbike Championships on Kawasaki Z1s. From 1979, a 'Mk 2' (mark two) version was added with black engine, general restyling including body and paintwork and a shaft-drive version was available, designated Z1000ST. The models continued until superseded by the fuel-injection Z1000H and GPZ1100 of the early 1980s. In 2003 Kawasaki introduced a completely revamped 30 year anniversary edition of the Z1000. It used a modified engine from the Kawasaki ZX-9R, and was bored out by 2.2 mm resulting in bigger displacement, more low-RPM torque, and only a slight power loss of 4 bhp from the original ZX9. In 2004, Kawasaki released the Z1000's smaller brother, the Z750. In 2007, Kawasaki released a new Z1000. The Z-series since the 1970s until today are also known as the "Z", "Zed", and "Z1k". In October 2009, Kawasaki unveiled the 2010 Z1000. It had a new aluminum frame, digital instrument panel, bodywork, and engine. Bore and stroke are 77 x 56 mm, 1 mm more than the ZX-10R’s 76 x 55 mm displacing 1043CC. That is up from the previous model's 953CC. Compression ratio is 11.8:1, and fuel injection is handled by a bank of 38 mm Keihin throttle bodies. The Z1000 was restyled and updated for 2014 making slightly more power and front brake caliper are 4 piston monoblock.
