  • ERGONOMICS: Relaxed upright riding position accommodates both comfortable cruising and sporty riding.

  • STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST SYSTEM: Double-walled headers, integrated connections and short megaphone silencer, all treated to a buffed finish highlight the retro-sport image.
  • LED LIGHTS: A round LED headlight and oval surface-emitting LED taillight pay homage to the original Z1 with a blend of retro and modern designs.
  • MULTI-FUNCTION INSTRUMENTATION: The high-tech multi-function LCD screen nestled between bullet shape analogue dials, featuring classic chrome bezels creates a balance of retro style mixed with modern functionality.
  • SPOKE STYLE CAST WHEELS: A classic look with machining on the spokes and rim plus high-quality paint demonstrates superb craftsmanship.
