2012 z1000sx tourer or non-tourer ?
on: 27 Jul 20, 01:15:31
Hi collective knowledge, I have a non ABS 2012 which the log book says is a GCF model and would like to know if its a tourer or non-tourer ? Are there any tell tale signs

The early models (Pre 2014) had bolt on bracketry for panniers, so not sure what yours might have that would designate it as a tourer, over the standard model  :027:

But this has been talked about before here: https://www.z1000sx.co.uk/index.php?topic=4063.0

Hi mdr, yeah I found that post as well but it seems to go on more about ABS than what the difference is/was between a 'tourer' and 'non-tourer' model. Was it just that Kawasaki added panniers and called it a tourer ? Or are there other differences ? I have read something on here about a re-inforced subframe that needs to be fitted from a later model to bring the early sx's up to spec for panniers ? cheers

Correct. From 2014 the OEM easy fit panniers were introduced.
They require a different sub frame and grab handles 👍

Thanks, starting to make a bit of sense now. So it seems that the 2012 'tourer' is just a 'non-tourer, with panniers and mounting brackets fitted ?

I am not sure that is correct.  My 2011 SX had ABS, was an HBF without panniers.

ABS was optional on the earlier models and typically cost about £400 extra  :006:
