The last air-cooled large-displacement twin shock bike from Kawi, the GPz1100 was a superbike with a cockpit fairing, fuel injection, and lots of incremental upgrades over the Z1000 that it replaced.
The ’82 model has a model code of B2, and it had clipons compared to the handlebars of the original ’81 model. It also got a cockpit fairing, larger brakes, and a revised fuel injection system. It packed a 1,089cc inline four motor that produced 109 horsepower and 70 pound-feet of torque. Wet weight was 550 pounds.
The seller of this example (VIN: JKAKZBB13CA011535, Engine #: KZT10BE011543) acquired it two and a half years ago from a private party in San Francisco, California.
During that time he covered approximately 800 miles. The odometer now shows 12,694 miles.
During his ownership, the seller installed a new chain and had the oil changed. This week before the listing went live, he had us replace a fuel vacuum line and install new NGK BR8ES spark plugs.
New Ikon shocks. The bike had some cheap aftermarket shocks when he acquired it so he chose to replace them.
Bassani Superbike exhaust.
