The 2014 Kawasaki Z1000SX is a clever, considered and very worthwhile update of an already excellent machine. The Z1000SX was already something of a connossieurs choice fast, effective, decently equipped, involving, good value and yet understated and unshowy too. Kawasaki hasnt lost any of that. It hasnt thrown the baby out with the bath water. Instead it has corrected or improved what it genuinely needed based on feedback of the old model, enhanced what it didnt and then added a bang up to date technical cherry. Simply put, Kawasaki has made an already great bike even classier.
