The Kawasaki Z1000 is already an impressive machine straight from the factory, but Shibuya Garage of Brazil took things to the next level by heavily modifying it to create a sleek and aggressive looking custom bike.
One of the most noticeable changes is the modified swing arm that can now accommodate a 300mm Metzeler tire. This alteration has increased the bike’s wheelbase and gives it a distinctive OSD (Outside Drive) style that makes it stand out from the crowd.
The exhaust system of the modified Z1000 is a sight to behold. The handcrafted black pipe add a surreal level of character to the bike, perfectly complementing its overall dark and moody aesthetic. In addition to the exhaust system, the rear fender has also been redesigned to have a streetfighter vibe to it. The new rear fender is also customized by hand, which further emphasizes the Shibuya Garage’s attention to detail and dedication to this project.
The redesigns do not stop with the swingarm and rear fender though, as Shibuya Garage also changed several of the motorcycle’s accessories. The bike features sleek new mirrors and indicators, a license plate holder, and several other new elements, enhancing the bike’s overall look and giving it a much more polished appeal.
The Kawasaki Z1000 has received a full black matte paint job that exudes a level of confident power that perfectly captures Shibuya Garage’s intentions with this build. It’s clear that they wanted to create a bike that would make a statement and leave every rider that looks upon it speechless.
Finally, no custom bike build would be complete without a bespoke seat. Shibuya Garage has not disappointed with this Z1000, providing a handcrafted saddle that is both stylish and comfortable. With a bike like this, it’s hard not to be envious of the owner and even harder not to take the Z1000 for a spin on the open highway.
In conclusion, Shibuya Garage’s modified Kawasaki Z1000 is one of the finest custom builds we have seen in recent times.
The modifications and customizations are outstanding, with a level of craftsmanship that is truly impressive. This distinctive bike not only looks amazing, but it also moves amazingly, delivering a unique riding experience like no other.
