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: JKAKZFH12CA003201) has just under 12,000 miles – the seller says that it “runs and rides good” with a new battery, fork seals, tires, and charging system. He adds that it was repainted a year ago (the stripes are paint, not decals) and it has a few other upgrades: K&N air filters, Mac exhaust, stainless front brake lines, aftermarket fork brace, and more. “Everything works as it should, bike is in overall nice condition for a 39 year old bike.”
