Kawasaki Z 1000

Looks like it’s going to have 4 headlights (possibly led), the tail looks very pointy (possibly a double Z tail-light a la Z800?). Fork covers also appear to be gone. It’ll also possibly have power modes, TC, and ABS like the Ninja 1000. Really, I’m seeing hints of a lot of Z800 inspired stying changes. The double sided dual exhaust points to this being the new Z1000 and not a Z800 or variant.

What I would like to see is the ability to mount hard luggage like the new Ninja 1000, but I’ve seen no hints of that; although it would be a good marketing move.

What does everyone else think?

Here’s the render for the 2014 Z1000 I pulled from a digital version of motorcyclist:

I don’t think it’s very accurate other than the fact the fork covers are gone and the headlight is narrow. The artist rendition makes the radiator look about double what you’d expect, and you can already see that in the teaser trailer the lower fairing will be connected in front of the exhaust header. Also it’ll almost definitely have the monoblock type front calipers like the 2014 Ninja 1000.
