is one of the earlier bikes produced, not one of the cast-from-pure-unobtainum Teliao Rosso that featured higher-spec and sand-cast engine parts.  V7 Sports featured a twin-disc set up at the front, but this has the very and reportedly effective drum of the earlier machines.

Interestingly, the time I wrote about one of a commenter called me out on part of my saying that the V-twin had never been used in a tractor as I’d described at all.

I’m Your Turbo Lover: Z1R Turbo

Posted on September 19, by Buck

“Then we race We can ride forever. Wrapped in horse-power, into fury. Changing gear I you tighter to me.”  Is it just me or it sound like Rob Halford was about the Kawasaki Z1r Turbo 1978?

I have only about these bikes for two years which seems a disservice to me. I mean, shouldn’t tell you these bikes when you buy your first or something? Maybe it’s the that I was born in the early and played Atari 64′s but is something so perfect about the turbo, 1000cc’s, the classic and the squarish body work.

is not a perfect museum piece so somebody can afford it.

1978 Z1R Turbo for sale on eBay

what the seller has to say.

you ever had a 550 lbs bike do a power Me neither. Maybe this would let you sign that off bucket list. If you’ve any of my previous posts you may remember I own a KZ1000.

My bike is very quick and had people on modern 1000cc say they were wide to keep up with me. The Z1r Turbo has 10 horse power, a little torque and does the 1/4 mile a whole second faster. that’s according to the stock of both bikes.

Kawasaki added a dual disk set up to the of the bike to help you stop all weight and power. For me, this is one of the top ten bikes of the 1970′s. I can’t be in that thought because bikes catch a hefty tag. I have seen in the $30,000 range.

Maybe will be low enough for you to scoop it up, you.
