KZ650 - (76-83)


The Kawasaki Z650 was a motorcycle made by Kawasaki from 1976 through 1983. It had an engine displacement of 652 cc featuring a double overhead camshaft with two valves per cylinder with a five speed gear box. The Z650 was introduced to the trade in 1976 as a 1977 model and was very popular. 64 bhp (48 kW) was claimed with a dry weight of only 465 lb (211 kg), making a top speed of nearly 120 mph (190 km/h) possible.

But more importantly, this new model handled like no other Kawasaki. For once all the available power could be used in relative safety. The Z650 was considered the 'Son of Z1' having been designed by the Grand Master himself, Ben 'Mr Z1' Inamura. The Z650 had the agility of a 500 with the performance of a 750, and was considered by many to be the best Kawasaki so far.
