Additional photos of this Kawasaki GPz1100 are available here for your perusal.

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.

For more on the big GPz, check out this story on MCN. They call it “the last king of a vanished clan – aircooled superbikes“.

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.
