“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

2016 Z1000SX Assist & Slipper clutch

THERE’S been no official announcement but details of the 2016-spec Kawasaki Z1000SX have popped up on Kawasaki’s Australian website and show that the only technical change is the addition of the firm’s ‘Assist and Slipper’ clutch.
The tweak should come as little surprise, since the same clutch already appeared on the new-for-2015 Versys 1000, which shares the Z1000SX’s engine and transmission.
As well as working as a slipper clutch, preventing the rear wheel from locking under engine braking, the Kawasaki unit has an ‘assist cam’ that helps pull the clutch plates together when drive is going through it, which means it can have softer clutch springs and a lighter lever action.
That modification aside, the Z1000SX (called Ninja 1000 in Australia) gets no changes apart from the inevitable new colours and graphics – green-and-black or grey-and-black are the choices, but the Aussie bike’s colours aren’t necessarily going to be carried over to European versions.
We’re expecting Kawasaki to make more official announcements about its unchanged or lightly tweaked 2016 bikes in the next few days.
