Kawasaki GPZ500S

Advantages: Looks, Knowing you own a Kawasaki

Not for thrill seekers


curves, a big mean looking and a nice shiny paint the Kawasaki GPZ 500 sure does like a stunner!

as mentioned this is a very good bike, my specific one has a red and silver job and I must say that this look the part.

Most cannot decide wether is a sports bike or a touring in my own personal opinion this is a designed for touring, with 4 net hooks underneath the back a nice comfy riding and a nice biggish seat for a This bike is absolutely for buzzing through town or round little country this is mostly due to it not being a wide bike, it can fit into of tight spaces quite without too much effort.

Drive / Ride Quality:

bike does ride nicely, its very easy to the steering is fairly light and it you know where your are before you start pushing it too This is not a bike to slam knees to the floor on, if your for a knee scraping thrill of a go and buy a ZX6R.

As mentioned in other on the web, the engine does a bit lumpy below 3k revs, doesnt seem normal on a the first time you ride it, but you get used to it after a while and is not to concern yourself with. 3k revs she is smooth as anything, all the way up to 7k is fairly sedate, but once you hit power band everything

The exhaust makes a sudden noise, the engine tone and all of a sudden it feels like engaged hyper-drive and your This bike can definately you sometimes when you need a pull away, and would out-do any high performance car up to 80 90 mph easily.

Braking is fairly I have the single front and rear disk model, and you dont sit up the arse of cars all the braking will never be a Keep the pads in good on the front and you will never end up into someones boot.


This bike, if everywhere, will produce more than 45 — 50 but that is if you really do cain it all the time (2nd gear 60 mph all the time, for instance). However if me you commute at 70 mph up the motorway all the time, and up to that speed in a sedate you can get up to 70 mph out of it. Depending on what fuel I I get anything from 65 — 72 mpg out of which lets face it, is good for a 2 cylinder machine of size!

My 125 used to do 85 to the gallon (ish) so to a drop of only 10 — 15 mpg is very good, for 5 times the

Mine starts push of the button every with or without choke. is most definately reccomended for or rainy days though! I have seen on ebay reasonably in-expensive compared to bikes too, so if anything to go wrong then parts be too expensive.

At Night:

The bike have a decent enough on it for you to blind car drivers, and a good low beam to navigate your way However I plan on fitting extra spotlights to mine.

What your mates think.

Mine all think this is a cracking looking it looks good in the cold with the twin exhausts away, and in the summer provided its polished it will outshine I have had people stop in car and look at it, commenting how nice it The only thing I am currently to find is a custom fairing to sit the belly pan and below the top fairing to fil in gap!

I have seen one with it on and it does look a lot

Overall a lush bike a lot of good features, perfectly commuter but definately not a bike for the seekers or anyone that to constantly do silly speeds and get licence un-sullied!

Summary: Fantastic bike, for new riders just passing tests!
