Kawasaki divides its motorcycles into two different categories- sport bikes and super-sport bikes.  The 2011 and 2012 Ninja 1000 and Z1000 are at the top of their class when it comes to Kawasaki sport bike models. Very similar to the Ninja 1000 is Kawasaki’s fellow sport model, the Z1000. The Z1000 is street fighter version of the Ninja 1000. With the same engine and frame. There are only minor tweaks that separate these bikes in their functionally, but major changes when it comes to style.

In 2011 Kawasaki put a lot of energy into their line of liter bikes, which included the Ninja 1000 and Z1000. These bikes have an aggressive yet appealing style and performance, but retain an ease of use, as the sport bike line was designed. The handle bars are raised for better control when managing the 1,043 cubic centimeters of tuned power. To optimize that power, Kawasaki has worked to perfect its cool air intake system. They integrated the air intake into ducts in the faring, allowing for increased flow with speed that creates a sonic difference that riders can hear and appreciate. What better way to optimize this technology than with a K&N KA-1111 performance air filter?

The KA-1111 will fit 2011 and 2012 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 and Z1000 models and will last for the life of the bike. Performance air filter part KA-1111 is backed by K&N’s industry leading Million Mile Limited Warranty. It is easy to clean and reuse. One of the biggest benefits of the K&N motorcycle air filter is the air filter technology. It is designed to increase horsepower and torque while it provides great air-flow over the stock filter with excellent filtration efficiency.

These high-performance sport bikes need to breathe clean air and lots of it and K&N’s KA-1111 air filter will fulfill all of those needs.
