If you’re reading this page, you already know the basics about this bike. An inline 4 cylinder DOHC engine provides power to the rear tire through a chain. Based on civilian models, the police bikes got larger generators to run the extra lighting and radios. Over the entire production run, this bike has 95% parts compatibility. The 2002 model, like this bike, got a 530 chain to save weight and increase acceleration. LED lights were introduced a year later.
This specific Kawasaki KZ1000P has just over 40,000 miles, and has had a recent inspection which included an oil change, new battery, and new front tire. The bike shows quite well in photos, and you’ll have the comfort of knowing there are spare parts everywhere for this bike, as it was made almost entirely unchanged for nearly 2 decades.
