The previous generation of the Ninja 1000 was a great sport-tourer that was just missing a couple of things on the “touring” side – most notably cruise control. Well, Kawi’s fixed that for 2020 thanks to ride by wire and several other goodies. The best part? It adds just $200 to the MSRP. If I bought a ’19, I’d be annoyed!
I’ve got a 2020 with me now, as as shown in the feature photo up top (shot by Nathan), I’m having a good time with it. It’s about time for me to write up my thoughts, so I’m just checking in to make sure I answer any questions you might have! Check out what Kawasaki has to say about their newest Ninja, then let me know your questions in the comments below!
