<br /> ADRENALINE<br /> INJECTION<br /> CYCLE WORLD TEST<br /> <br /> N .” T<br /> OT ANOTHER NAKED HAT WAS THE FIRST RESPONSE<br /> from Kawasaki’s U.S. product-planning department<br /> when the Japanese home office asked how many<br /> Z1000s the American market could absorb.

Now, with the Z1000<br /> obviously green-lighted, something must have changed at the<br /> Irvine, California, headquarters. So what was the swing factor?<br /> “The Z1000 is one of those bikes that is very hard to<br /> put into words,” said Kawasaki Product Manager Karl<br /> Edmondson. “No matter what is said in a PowerPoint presen-<br /> tation or in the press kit, it’s one of those bikes you just have<br /> to go out and ride.”<br /> <a title="64421-WR_np.pdf page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/cd51c2bd?page=1"> ADRENALINE INJECTION CYCLE WORLD TEST</a> <a title="64421-WR_np.pdf page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/cd51c2bd?page=2"> </a> <a title="64421-WR_np.pdf page 3" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/cd51c2bd?page=3"> N .” T OT ANOTHER NAKED </a> <a title="64421-WR_np.pdf page 4" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/cd51c2bd?page=4"> ADRENALINE INJECTION </a> <a title="64421-WR_np.pdf page 5" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/cd51c2bd?page=5"> ADRENALINE INJECTION </a> <a title="64421-WR_np.pdf page 6" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/cd51c2bd?page=6"> Out goes the old steel frame and in its place is </a> <a title="64421-WR_np.pdf page 7" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/cd51c2bd?page=7"> EDITORS' NOTES </a>
