Reviews starting to come out now:


Write ups on websites and basic view reviews whilst more detailed stuff soon to be released.

Not long before dealers will have them to see in real life...

Seen the bike for real today,

Saw it at Bournemouth Kawasaki, they have all three colours in the showroom and have sold a bunch already.

It does look good, not wildly different, but a nice update I would say

Yep I saw it at the NEC and the subtle changes to the fairing side panels and seat does make a difference.  You can get it for around £10K on PCP if you haggle, so not far from the 2017+ model.

Looked at one i my dealers yesterday...and TBH definitely not worth changing my 2019 model for, in fact I genuinely think my model looks nicer, that exhaust is fugly!   Offered me a new one for part ex and £4,000 payment  :005:
On another note, just had the 3,800 miles service done and mechanic said ,"see you for the 7,500 service"....two chances of that I'm afraid.   Nothing to do with the dealer ( they are superb ) but what are Kawasaki thinking with so many services ????

It does look good, and the green looks a lot better in real life.

Exhaust is very large, especially when viewed from the rear.

There must be an akropovic or something out for it if not now then very soon...

I agree I wouldn't swap a 2017+ (especially a 2019) for the 2020 model, the main issue being it's not financially viable and the new bike isn't that much different apart from a few cosmetic/electronic enhancements. The 7500 mile service is insane.  Just endless attempts to screw more money out of the rider.  I skipped it, changed the oil and filter myself.

I had a 2016 z1000sx and whenever it came to the 7500 mile service I was so disappointed in the cost of it that I changed the bike. Looking back, I should have serviced myself and kept it. I will be changing the oil and filter myself on this one as it is now 11months old with only 3000 miles on it. By the time I have 7500 miles on it I will be out of warrinty anyway.

I am in the same boat - my 2018's 7500 mile service was due in late November - dealer quoted £400 (with the unnecessary plug change), my bike sits in the garage all winter until late March and my warranty is up in early April anyway - so I changed the oil and filter using a genuine Kawasaki version, filled in the service book details and that was that.  Cost me less than £40.
