You got it right. The 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 will now be sold locally through Kawasaki Philippines. First units will arrive in October 2011. But you have to hurry and decide now if you want to buy this awesome monster bike because almost all units are sold out. Potential buyers (ooohhh and some resellers) have already reserved several units as early as June 2011.
Honestly speaking, I think the Kawasaki z1000 can be my “reality bike” as opposed to my “dream bike”, which is either a Yamaha r6 or Ducati Evo 848. Because? R6 is not sold locally, but you can buy it brand new through gray imports. The other reason is that the r6 and Evo 848 are more expensive — 650,000 and 1,000,000 pesos, respectively.
Expected Price Range of the 2011 Kawasaki Z1000 (according to my very reliable sources): 540,000 to 580,000 pesos. I will post the final price here once Kawasaki Philippines will launch the Z1000 sometime in October.
