Kawasaki Ninja 1000 ABS Highs & Lows

Highs
  • Broad spread of engine torque
  • Well thought-out luggage system (but expensive)
  • High-quality and precise clutch and transmission

Lows
  • $1,269.75 luggage option
  • Suspension could deliver better ride on bumpy roads
  • Windscreen could be taller

The above is just a short list of the highs and lows of the 2014 Ninja 1000, what other highs and lows are there that you guys know of?

the lows dont really seem to be that bad to me.

the luggage option does seem insanely expensive. but the suspension and windscreen aren't very big problems. suspension could ALWAYS be better. not very many bikes will come with top shelf suspension.

That seems like a lot of money to pay for a luggage option. The windscreen being taller could be an improvement and that wouldn't have been much of a challenge for Kawasaki ninja 1000.

Do people think that the Kawasaki Ninja 1000 is too expensive? Or do you think its reasonable?

The lows aren't that bad but it's still a 'low', definitely not things that will have a person rethinking their decision of buying a 2014 Ninja 1000.
I agree with suspension, sometimes it's even someones opinion and preference that makes it seem good or horrible. some people will be very happy with the stock suspension.

well unless you go for like a Ducati or Aprilia you aren't going to get top shelf suspension.
That's true but even those bikes don't have the best possible suspension setup in the world, I hear of owners that still want to change it more to their liking. always something to be improved.

no doubt. the best suspension cost more than any mass produced motorcycle in the industry by MAGNITUDES.

LOL yup.

Just best to upgrade the suspension setup to one that's more to your liking if it is really that important to you.

most people stick with stock suspension. but you should be able to get better shocks for under $2k.

If you feel the stock one lacking. Most riders probably wont use the suspension to its full potential stock except for the best of riders.
