Witness the stunning Sugomi influenced Z1000 R Edition. The Z1000 R Edition has a menacing colour scheme with green highlights plus Brembo M50 calipers and an Öhlins rear shock. Already a highly respected and dramatic machine, the Z1000 R Edition delights fans of naked streetfighter class machines that demand a refined yet raw ride.
Cool Air system
With the airbox nestled between the frame beams, intake air can be affected by engine heat. The Cool Air system routes cool air to the airbox from ducts at the front of the side fairings, minimising performance loss due to heated intake air. This should not be confused with Ram Air, where force-fed air becomes pressurised in the airbox.
LED indicators and headlamp
The thin, compact headlamp cowl was positioned as low as possible, extending the line that starts from the top of the tank. For the 2018 Z1000 R Edition the indicators also feature LED.
