Kawasaki K1 900 1973
When it was released in 1972 the Kawasaki Z1 was the most powerful Japanese 4-cylinder, 4-stroke motorcycle ever offered for sale to the general public. It was also the first time an affordable 4-cylinder motorcycle had been offered for sale with double overhead cams.
The Italians over at MV Agusta had been doing DOHC 4-cylinder motorcycles for years by this time of course, but their motorcycles cost over twice as much as the Japanese Z1 and were produced in far lower numbers as a result.
With a swept capacity of 903cc and 81 hp available at 8,500 rpm, the Z1 was a revelation. The brakes and handling of the model were what you would expect by the standards of the era, and Z1 owners quickly learned a new skill set to best manage this new motorcycle with a top speed of over 130 mph in the right hands.
F1 legend Niki Lauda was driving one of these in the same colour combination.
