Only the exhaust and headlight could use some fine tuning in my eyes.. Author admin 2 years ago Reply yea i agree, let down a little by the front part of the exhaust. Still pretty sick though.

FRCA 2 years ago Reply very nice rendetion one could look and say i would do this different or that but that is a desirable concept that would be purchae by the masses KEZZ 2 years ago Reply Have been a Kawasaki person since buying my first road bike in 1970.Have owned a number of 500 triples.Bought a new Z1B in 1975,then collected a few more Zeds over the years to add to my small stable of bikes.So as you can see,I love the Z.However,taking a look at the ”TRIBUTE”to the mighty Z,Kawasaki may as well have done nothing at all.To me,the bike is not a true indication of what they could have,and should have done.The display of the bike at the show was piss poor.It could have been way,way better.To take a stock bike from the factory,gut it,replace the tank which to me, looks like a Zephyr unit from the 90′s,bung on a seat which appears to be a stepped down Z1 type,then take a duck tail from the same era,modify it,and wack it on.Then there’s the exhaust.Won’t go there.To me,this bike is an insult to the memory of the model that SAVED Kawasaki’s arse.No telling where they would be now if they had not been beaten to the punch by HONDA way back in 1968.If they had beaten HONDA to the punch,and released the bike we have all seen a prototype of,then I doubt we would be discussing the Z at this point in time.Kawasaki owes a great deal to HONDA for doing what they did,when they did.

Ninjainblue 2 years ago Reply I love it….seat and tank could be better, and am sure Kwak designers could do it better…. also… I would buy one!! I already have a Z1b…..ZX7r and a ZX12r so Kwak fours are great !! Stuck in the mud people that dont like it should stick to Hondas ….!!!
