Ninja 1000 Touring Accessories

Comfortable enough to be ridden day after day, the Ninja 1000 reaches its full sport-touring potential with Kawasaki Genuine Accessories. Due to their style, practicality and ease of use, the 28-liter Kawasaki Quick Release (KQR) hard saddlebags ($1,269.75 with mounting kit) are a must-have. A 39-liter, color-matched KQR hard top case ($729.80) is also available, but it cannot be mounted at the same time as the saddlebags.

Compatible with the hard luggage is an expandable soft top case ($89.95) that mounts to the passenger seat and an expandable tankbag ($134.95). The tankbag has a window compartment on top for a toll transponder, but will not work with a GPS because it has no power cord port. The 2-piece rider/passenger gel seat ($324.95) has a carbon fiber-like texture and is firmer but more supportive than the stock seat; the rider’s seat has a rounder shape than stock.

Other accessories include a tank pad ($69.95), seat cowl ($199.95), engine guards ($299.95) and fork sliders ($119.95).
