Description

Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1983 Kawasaki GPz750. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

Kawasaki first introduced the GPz750 in 1982 as a direct replacement for the KZ750. Despite their similarities, the GPz brought with it a number of changes — it proved to be much more than a rehashed Z bike.

For instance, Kawasaki treated the steering head to some tapered bearings and swapped out the bike’s traditional handlebars in favor of a set of solid aluminum clip-ons. What’s more, the Big K modified the engine extensively, boosting the compression, redesigning the camshafts, and fitting it with a set of Mikuni 34mm carburetors. As if all of that wasn’t enough, Kawasaki gave the cylinder heads a new and improved combustion chamber and offered them with porting and polishing from the factory.

When combined with an all-new frame, Uni-Trak suspension, and a set of fresh brakes and wheels, such changes made the GPz750 the quickest stock 750 of its day. Cycle World recorded a 1/4 mile time of 11.93 seconds at 109.62mph, calling the GPz an “improved KZ750” that gave riders “that distinctive sense of raw strength, muscular and unbreakable.” In short: “the best in its class.”

This example is VIN: JKAZXDA17DA001173. The seller acquired it from a private party in July of 2016.

During his ownership, the seller has covered approximately 500 miles. The odometer shows 10,121 miles.
