The Kawasaki KZ750 didn’t get much attention from the world – it was basically a bigger KZ650 that didn’t have many other revisions. Check out this link for a retrospective on the KZ from Clement Salvadori at Rider.
Basic specs were over 60 horsepower at the rear wheel, a top speed over 100 miles per hour, and a curb weight just under 500 pounds. 1981 offered a choice of two colors: Luminous Gun Blue or the Galaxy Silver of this bike for sale. Kawi claimed that this bike was “24 pounds lighter than the closest rival” and “over 50 pounds lighter than the next two.” As part of a 750cc sport bike comparison, Cycle Guide Magazine said “Somehow the bike felt alive, like it was enjoying the ride too, its responsive engine screaming with delight. Only the Kawasaki made me feel like I was riding with a friend. And that’s character.”
This example has roughly 17,000 miles and is said to be all original and complete. Everything is said to work and the sale includes an OEM fairing, owner’s manual, service manual, and tool kit. The seller says that it “should go to a collector” – will that be you?
