Sporty and high performance were always a domain of With the contraction the G P Z in the model inspire the world-wide fan municipality for

Power has extremely strongly machines belongs to this like the yellow to the egg with tradition. The 500er three three-cylinder was considered to end of the 60’s as monster absolutely, the 900er Z1 center of the 70’s the newest of the art Vierertakt. After these of motorcycle history Kawas GPZ was started 1980 with a Big which provided properly for sensation.

The GPZ 1100 FI (first lining) received the descriptor wheelwheel wheel of all times the first test of the US magazine World immediately. The 1100er block drove the quarterly down in 11.18 seconds. To there was also a novelty the technique: An electronic fuel which was built after license by the Japanese company To Germany Kawas new flagship was only starting from

But already 1982, after one sales year, replaced dfi fuel injection) the FI system, operated still with an air flap for amount of air entry and into the cylinder head injection nozzles. Exterior feature of the 1982 GPZ 1100 dfi was one installed mini lining. in the year after a frame-fixed lining then already this somewhat halfhearted protection.

In the eighties all Japanese with hectic model acted. Novelties came and to modifications at the model pallet it zuhauf. With Kawasaki is an exception this rule The G P Z 9 0 0 R almost one decade remained in the although some candidates activated to the separation.

The 900er provided abroad the name addition Ninja was world-wide proud 60000 and survived even successors the GPZ 1000RX and the ZX10. The GPZ 1000RX 96 ccm capacity plus and 125 HP maximum was introduced 1986. It was to be moved handily, made however chassis tuning of more than the 900er.

The RX an air supply, in at high rate cool air positive pressure into the air box too had already gotten, a forerunner ZXR RAM AIR system.

The GPZ 900R was the first with a liquid-cooled four-valve four-cylinder. Anno ‘ 84 gave it a Big Bike, which was this racer. Even the 100PS version brought it on a speed of over 240 km/h.

the Ninja was owing to six-course remarkably acceleration-strongly, also the with 16 front wheel with perfect characteristics: enough and extremely track-stably in Nevertheless all gold was not which The first years of construction of the GPZ prepared with hit valves annoyance, the open-loop system gladly and the coolant temperature announced frequently the overheating of the although that around the was not at all so too warm.

Some modifications the 1990 then to something the years GPZ come again on the of the art. The chassis got a stronger broader rims and a four-piston pliers at now 17 the inch front Into will could the GPZ in the year 1993 finally the retirement go. During its career it was with the emergence of the optically GPZ 750R godfather.

In identical 16 the inch chassis sat the same engine, to which with another crankshaft to capacity had been help. The GPZ racers with 900 / 750 Kubik naturally many more and more expensive than the air-cooled types, which further parallel offered and to large popularity enjoyed. The old engines nevertheless looked on a tradition back.

The series which provided 1982 in the GPZ 750 for propulsion, descended in direct from the proven Z 750, is again Z 650 as an ancestor in the ancestor had.

By modifications to the pistons and carburetors cultivates current 2 engine on an uprated GPZ — heaved. This first GPZ came completely in the style of the at that time: with lamp lining and quite attached steering wheel. 22 litres the tank called now and then even mockery on the some said that the GPZ 750 the Prix suggesting signature do not at all, because the large would do also a Tourer in the

Since for the long-distance WM soon four-cylinders to 750 ccm should become Kawasaki already presented a new GPZ which came substantially sportily therefore for 1983. By valve angles, higher and new, contactless transistor ignition system was raised the performance on 87 HP. An aluminum — with Excenter chain-stretch and University of Trak suspension the chassis.

The firmly at the framework installed shell gave the 1983 the dynamic appearance to version.

from 1985 this was offered also with lining and followed thus the turbo-version. This turbo- could heat 1983 0,73 bar load printing and 100 HP even the not throttled GPZ 1100, which the wind-cooled four-cylinder had dfi injection. Impressing one 200,000 achieved the turbine as sharpening number and drew from somewhat old engine 25 extra HP become outstanding co-ordinated turbo-operation.

The turbo GPZ set also one of conclusion under the Japanese of loaded motorcycle engines; and it can itself the fame, those connoisseurs best ones of all production — Turbos to been.

At that time the liquid-cooled four-valve seemed reasonable — engines. The large throw took not for a long time — time in the sporty middle The engine of the GPZ 600 was one of 900er detached

The two Overhead cam shafts were propelled not laterally, but. rocker fingers (with screws for correcting the valve operate altogether 16 valves. nominal 75 HP (litre performance = 125 HP) at present the conception 1984 in this capacity class.

The appeared, like at that among sportsmen usually, 16 inch chassis and anti at the telegabel in front. For lack of the GPZ 600 R of 0 to 100 prospered to the class-best, also their chassis marvelously and the brakes were strongly and When 1987 the GPX 600 to overhauls was the GPZ 600 R — similar as the 900er could maintain ground for a long time.

In the motorcycle scene there was so sympathy demonstrations that saw itself forced 1989 to give the GPZ 600 the GPX engine with control times and full 82 HP on the way.

Finally 1990 the from for the small Ninja. It had the tradition of the GPZ 550, a GPZ sportsman of the hour. Already with the anno 1980 shone the with 58 HP, a new optimum in this

Almost naturally were at time a small cockpit and a six-course transmission. As the first model indicated the small GPZ the operating Unitrak suspension with central shock well-known of Toni Mang’s GP

In the development levels followed an (1983), stronger on 62 HP, and a repeated (by higher compression and longer overlap times) around 3 HP in the after. Although the technique of the 2 valve thereby was quite the 550er four-cylinder ran very As with engines if the badly cold run phase did not have to be all GPZ, in which the engines usually much too highly, to the GPZ have been entitled to a cult price.

From praise Hymn in things run far, appeared the GPZ 500 S in the year Their liquid-cooled two-cylinder ever four valves per chamber ran roughly, sat down by enormous road performances in In the structure the engine corresponded to a GPZ 1000 RX four-cylinders also by 180 of shifted … taps.

60 HP when 9800 revolutions per from scarcely 500 ccm were at time, like also a strong performance for a twin.

two years 500 S received a double in front instead of the single Only for the year 1994 a global renovation pended. 16 chassis to 17 inch was changed new brake calipers and stronger as well as a Facelift with new and modified plastic parts in front the GPZ 500 S apart from favourable price to new attractiveness.

She is by the way a last representative of the GPZ series, had to offer some in former also in the small class. about 1983 the GPZ were to 400, in which a DOHC engine operated, with 46 HP an motorcycle, which again by a shell lining and on 49 HP extended fought to 1985 revalued for the of the customers.

The increase in output was by larger carburetors (30 instead of 26 mm) and a new — / deviation ratio. 27 HP throttle version of the GPZ 400 could only few enthusiasm with the driving licence owners. market segment was covered sufficiently by the GPZ 305.

In the shadow of large, fast brothers the two-cylinder developed alternatively or 34 HP. The unusual capacity size the at the beginning of the 60’s with 306 ccm of the CB 7, was sold.

The temper of the Kawasaki OHC of engine, the start also in the driving class 1a version and the handy, chassis almost predestined the GPZ 305 for a The 1984 model with the designation Belt drive the rear wheel no longer via chain, but over a maintenance-poor belt. The GPZ 250 already used driving belt from PU, and nylon since its appearance Their twin engine is out also in the GPZ 305.

Even if the of the 250er Kawa were to insurance-favorable 17 HP, the smallest GPZ possessed a double disk brake in and Unitrak rear suspension Which series replace the GPZ s in the Kawasaki program now, is not clear. Are the sporty ZZR’s or the ZX or ZXR type moderate it?

GPZ of models ranked among the sport proved in addition, long-distancesuited and comfortably, showed thus those characteristics, which go off supersportsmen. No miracle thus GPZ’s are desire worth for fans today still, enjoy fun and comfort apart almost strength also as as possible when driving
