First – find a second hand motorbike dealer that ships from Japan – you can find them on Flea bay by searching for various models that were never destined for your country.The article compared it to a Kawasaki W800, now thats a pretty bike. Anyone have a clue how hard it is to import a bike? Or if its even possible?
How about a Triumph Bonneville? Looks almost the same but readily available....Thanks Purple, yeah I started doing some research so to me............................no I cant import one Wish Kawasaki would import it themselves so I can just buy one
My KZ is getting closer. It will be on the road before the end of the year, waiting on carb parts. I did get a new replica seat cover for it, only took a month and a half..........from China!I would love one of those 1100s.I always had a love for the 83 cb1100.candy apple red and pearl white with gold wheels.Excuse me I need a moment..................Ok I'm good now.I hope to have my 78 cb750 back on the road this spring after 15 years in pieces.I can still remember how good it felt to sit on it and how good it sounded with the single exhaust.
Wasn't the Kawi Mach III the first superbike? The reason Honda built the 750 in the first place- to beat them?I have always been a fan of the old Honda CB750's. It was called the first Superbike when it was introduced in 1969. I rode my first one in 1970. I went from a CB350 to one soon after. I loved that bike.
I sat on one of the new classic ones at the dealer a few months ago and it felt so small, spongy springs and it just didn't fit. I was disappointed. It didn't feel like I remembered at all. But I still kind of like them.
The Z1 was cool, but I believe the mach iv was faster. It's just that the mach III and mach IVs killed 93.141592% of the people that rode them [because they put the 500 and 750 2stroke engines in a 350 frame that wasn't designed for such power] that caused people to prefer the z1- because you were less likely to die riding one.I think the Norton first used the term superbike. But Kawis Z1 was the king of the hill for most of the 70s. My little KZ650 held its own too. Kawasaki claimed it would out perform any bike from any manufacture that was 750 ccs or smaller
