In Blog by Abhi0 Comments

Sold for two model years, the GPZ750 Turbo from Kawasaki is generally considered to be the best of the 80s Japanese turbo bikes that had a brief impact in the marketplace. 112 horsepower was good enough for a 10.7 second quarter mile – consider that a Kawasaki ZX-11 did the quarter in 10.26!

Running the MotoGiro, Part 1

In Blog by Abhi0 Comments

I’ve featured reader Jim R before thanks to his passion for early Kawasaki singles and that the fact that he’s picked up a couple of them through Bike-urious.
