In Japan, Sport by AbhiLeave a Comment

When Kawasaki introduced the GPz550 in 1981, it was a shot in the arm of the middleweight class. Now riders could get something fast, nimble, and sporty without having to get a big bike!

Basic specifications included 57 horsepower, 469 pounds of weight, and a claimed top speed of 119 miles per hour. For more on the middleweight GPz, check out this article from Mitch Boehm on Motorcyclist, who says, “fast, sexy, and nimble, the GPz…catapulted Kawasaki into the leadership position for middleweight streetbikes.”

This example (VIN: JKAKZFD19BA001177) has 8,565 miles on the odometer though it’s gone through a “semi-restoration” with “new paint, new cowl windshield, new battery, new mirrors, new tires, new seat cover, new air filters, and anything else it may have needed.” The sale includes the tool kit and owner’s manual.
