Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX 2020

The Kawasaki Ninja 1000SX is more evolution than revolution - but what is the point of reinventing everything in a balanced sports tourer? But the new name is definitely justified, with the many new features made possible by the Ride-by-Wire system, among others, the sports tourer is absolutely up to date. Cornering ABS, modern traction control and riding modes provide safety and adjustment options to personal preferences, the shift assistant favours sport as well as touring. What's more, the price is hot (at least in Austria)!
