New 2020 N1K Colors

I think that Kawasaki is supposed to release the 2020 N1k in about a week and a half, that's what I was told by my dealer anyway.

Do any of you have any information on this, I'm not finding anything on Google? I was hoping for either an exact date or maybe a preview of the color scheme.

I did see where Kawasaki released information on the 2020 ZX10, however the colors that were released for that bike were the same ol' Green, Gray, and Black.

I was really kind of hoping for a return of white or blue.

I used to only want black, but now I'm all about the blue. Currently racking up miles, waiting to see what they'll make for 2020. If need be, I'll look for a low-mile blue 2014 instead. And re-enjoy it. 🙂

Gotta admit, I had Black, I have Blue, Blue is better! There will always be black for all those of you who just want to look like the next guy but for those of us independent thinkers, colors are a nice option.

Kawasaki UK has the 2019 z100psx in blue/ black. I'll bet we see that color for 2020. Blue looks darker than it was before.

It's been a little more than a week and a half... Thread bump for rumors.

On Saturday, a salesman told me the 2020 N1Ks have already been pre-ordered by the dealership. With a deposit, i could have one in a week or two.

Don't get excited, he didn't know what a Ninja 1000 is. Dealers are fun guys. 🙂

Tell me about it. When I went and ordered the hard cases for my bike the guy at the parts counter told me Kawasaki doesn't make hard cases for the Ninja 1000.

He was utterly amazed when he found out there was another Ninja 1000.

I'm anxiously awaiting the 2020 colors, which I understand from the Kawasaki site (and the cloaked motorcycles w/ the dates and countdown clocks below) will be announced in a week or two. I'm currently riding a 2016 Yamaha FJR1300, a bike I like, but I keep coming back to the Ninja 1000 as a lighter, more nimble replacement this coming Spring. But I readily admit, silly as it might sound, that color is important to me...just not into black/silver/white bikes, no more than I am into the Versys, which may be a great bike for me on paper but the practical and utilitarian ADV look just doesn't do it for me.

So I'm hoping the red of the '16 (?) model year will make a reappearance...or the dark'ish metallic green or blue of the last year or two of the European-release Ninja 1000s will find their way here...or the orange of the '19/current Ninja 650 (which would be my top pick). Just something with color. Hope I don't have to wait another year, but I guess I'll know shortly.
