This beautiful racebike left the dealer floor as a Kawi GPZ1100, but now it’s got a Sam Williams 1,170 motor packing Webb cams and larger valves fed by 40mm flat slide carbs and exhaling through a Hindle exhaust.

The list of modifications doesn’t end with the motor, though. This also has custom ZRX forks, Ohlins rear suspension, ZX-7 rims, ZX-6 brakes, Dyna ignition, and a Brembo master cylinder. The seller says that it put down 128 horsepower at the rear wheel on pump gas and should be “good for 135-140” on the 110 octane gas he would use while racing. The sale includes a small set of spares.

Find this Kawi racer for sale in Dahlonega, Georgia for $6,500 here on ADVRider (registration required). If you don’t have an account on ADVRider, it’s also available on the WERA Roadracing Forum.
