2018 Kawasaki Z1000SX Touring model with good freebies! £9,999 On The Road @ Colchester Kawasaki

56
Found 1st Mar
Just received this in an email from Colchester, the dealer where I bought my 2013 model Z1000SX Tourer back in 2014. I personally found them to be excellent in terms of the whole buying experience (it's just a shame I live about 100 miles away from them).

Anyway I'd love a new 2018 model Z1000SX but I can't justify it, however if you are in the market for a extremely good, fast, touring bike for summer this could be it.

This is the brand spanking new updated 2018 model, not an outdated version (like I bought).... it's a brilliant bike.... I really want one!!

Also the deal comes with some nice freebies, the touring kit is worth every penny (if they still do the pannier bags it's worth trying to negotiate them into the price as they are really good and convenient). The Shoei helmet I don't know much about but it's Shoei and they make excellent lids. Finally BikeTrak, again I don't know much about it but I'm assuming it might save you a few quid off insurance.

The icing on the cake would have been a 0% finance deal but alas not this time, although you can go for a fairly expensive PCP deal if you want.

Overall, if you can finance it some other way and have a part exchange then I think it's a fantastic deal for a brand new 18 plate bike on the road.

Just because you can't ride a motorcycle don't judge everyone else by your own inadequacies.

Yes, sorry maybe I didn't mean inadequacies, perhaps I should of used the word insecurities if you automatically assume that everyone will fall of eventually, be a bit more brave/adventurous with your choices, you may find you enjoy it and don't have to express your frustrations on an internet forum so much.
Has it got snow tyres?

Erm....no thanks.
That's a touring bike these days? It must take a few days to unfold yourself after you get off!

The bike in the picture is not the Z1000SX, follow the link if you are tempted. Great bikes!
Fantastic deal
OMG! Ten grand for a bike? I am so out of touch
Looks like a 250cc to me?

Oh yeah sorry only just realised that, Although my first post does include a copy of the email I received... with the Z1000SX and the the colours.

I'll change the main pic once I get on a computer.
Updated the main image to a Silver Z1000SX (minus the panniers)

Yep bike prices went up significantly around the time of the banking crisis. Not sure weakened pound following the EU referendum had helped either, but it is a very competitive market and I'm guessing dealers need to hit sales targets (difficult with all this snow around)

Making a choice not to do something doesn’t suddenly make someone inadequate.

Maybe that’s where so many bikers go wrong,they think they are better than everyone else on the roads
Loose change for me .

It's much taller and more upright cause of bars it is a sports tourer so I get what you mean. Super comfy bikes though 👌🏼

Not really a helpful comment. I guess you'll add something similar to all the meal deal/lchocolate/whisky threads as well, to warn buyers of the health risks involved.
Need to get rid of ma vfr first
Great deal 🏻

Great price for a great bike. My wife has a five-year-old version and still loves it.
What a beautiful bike! Heat added!

How would I know? For all I know, you think it looks like a parsnip
Every motorbike thread has a "death trap" troll , and a " you can buy a new fiesta for that " troll. It's compulsory!
Nice! This is pretty much my realistic dream bike in that I could actually own it one day, just need to get a new job. Wouldn't be for summer though, gotta be for year round commuting if I'm spending that much.

It's unreal, innit. When I changed my Triumph last summer, I was looking at around 4k more for what I would consider like for like from my 14 plate. I think new regulations such as mandatory ABS as well as most of the manufactures having to design new engines to meet the emission targets have added on to the bottom line (and things just generally costing more!)

On the plus side, safer and presumably more reliable bikes. Not that I'd notice as I dont ride fast, and only get about 3k miles in a year! There are still some cheap bikes out there, but just completely personally and maybe snobbery, they just aren't for me.

I was having a bit of a laugh with my comment.

Why are you taking it so seriously and why are you getting so personal with me ?

Bit over the top telling someone they are inadequate,they have insecurities,are frustrated and don't enjoy themselves,just because they made a bit of a joke.And you must know it was a joke as would anyone really think you get a hospital bed as a free gift with a bike ?

And no I don't ride a bike,but that didn't mean I should be called every name under the sun by you and for you to presume that I don't enjoy things.Yes I may have fun if I had a bike,and at no point did i say they are not fun ,but I have my fun in other ways.

Here is a photo of my fun,and remember,it's horses for courses

They are not "better", though I understand there is research which shows that people who ride motorcycles make for safer car drivers.

So I'm not sure about your "maybe that's where so many bikers go wrong" statement. Do you ride a bike? Do you feel it has improved your spatial awareness and alertness to hazards? That's "going right" in my book.

Okay, first off please don't take this the wrong way,
It was only personal because i was replying to your particular comment, i did'nt know you was having a bit of fun,
you just appeared to come across as anti bikes in both of your comments about hospitals and bikers thinking that they're better than everyone else on the roads, try adding some smilies in your post's and maybe us over sensitve bikers will be a bit more understanding!
Oh, by the way i was always more of a Subaru man myself!

Nice

I definitely don't have any issues with bikers and i would own a bike,but I just know I would be too much of a nutter on one LOL

Actually I love bikers as they are one of the only things on the road I can have a play with,and I normally get a thumbs up at the end of it from the biker.We get a lot of bikers around my way as each summer they hold a bike night every week or so to raise money for charity,that's normally a good time to have blast in the evo with the bikers.

I think the charity is to raise money for hospital beds and plaster casts ,JOKE JOKE JOKE

Got the 2014 model... Stunningly good machines... Wish I could afford this one!!!. 😁

Me too, last time I bought a new motorbike I paid £5999 for a brand spanking new ZX10R, and yes I do mean the modern sports bike not the 30 year old sports tourer!
Although it was 13 years ago now, and a one of deal that the dealer needed to move on quickly.

As it’s got 250 on the side of the bike it’s a give away.

You really are! The Mini killed the myth of a bike being the poor man's transport.
