Kawasaki GPz900R | Bike EXIF

Kawasaki GPz900R

There’s a small list of landmark motorcycles: those that moved the game forward, upsetting expectations and changing the market for ever. In the 1980s, one of those bikes was the Kawasaki GPz900R.
This immaculate resto-mod from Tokyo’s AC Sanctuary is a reminder of how good that bike was. For starters, it was lighter than the competition, had equal power from a smaller engine, and was the first production bike to top 150 mph (240 kph).

Never mind that the engine was temperamental, the carbs iced over and the choke operated on a hair-trigger. The GPz900R could smoke every other bike on the road.
