The 2013 Kawasaki Z800 will have you sold on its overly aggressive looks but it is also a pretty darn competent bike.
Powered by a larger displacement engine (806cc) it will still maintain the original essence of the original Z750. It will replace the Z750, a model that has been almost completely unchanged since 2007. This mean machine that has just debuted in Europe has already caused a stir since its arrival on the scene. Bike fundis have been swooning over it and take one look at this work of art and you will easily understand why.
It appears to be a punched out version of the Kawasaki Z800, it is almost like a 806cc version of the 748cc inline-four model and its bodywork appears to be virtually same. Kawasaki are still being a bit clandestine about its overall specs and only keeping the public within earshot of details like toque and horsepower. American riders have voiced concern about the2013 Kawasaki Z800 not making its way over to their neck of their woods because it may be a little too similar in size to the Kawasaki Z1000 almost making it a little redundant. The Z800 will most probably receive competition from Triumph Street Triple, Suzuki GSR750 and Ducati Monster 796 but we don’t think it will effect sales.Its official debut is slated for the Intermot show in Cologne, Germany, on October 2.
