The production of Kawasaki GPZ was launched after the year 1987 and since then many different versions appeared in the market. Its popularity was high when the bike only appeared while it was produced in a great variety of colors and elements of the exterior. But after that period of time the model lost its desirable character until it was discontinued in the year 2004.
The motorcycle was equipped with a four-valve engine, delivering 59bhp and 34lbft of torque. The maximum speed shown by the vehicle was about 125mph, which is rather fast. Acceleration deserves appraisal, too: it is over 7000rpm. The motorbike is extremely fast on the motorway, but its balanced structure suggests it to be a very decent all-rounder. The light weight of the bike, together with its narrow shape, makes Kawasaki GPZ respond very quickly to the need of the pilot. The design of suspension is rather economical: but designers didn’t make it any worse than its closest rivals. Though highly practical, the suspension still needs some revision after using it for a great deal of time. Another asset of the bike is its simplified handling. That is very useful for those who only begin riding a motorcycle.
As for the equipment of the bike, it is represented by very crucial details. The simplicity of the dashboard may mislead an ordinary buyer. But one should bear in mind that the dashboard is very functional and responsive. The indicators show the data with accuracy. The other equipment is represented by standard clock and large adjustable mirrors. The latter present a good overview of the road, this corresponds to all the required safety measures.
As the bike has a long history of its production, one can find very old versions of Kawasaki GPZ. Such models require a significant amount of revision of suspension and other motor elements. But the main characteristics of the engine make the bike a very powerful all-rounder. This means that it suits well ordinary roads of the city and of course the motorway.
