Like the Honda Monkey lived for many years and its production is still done up till now, but in the 70s it wasn’t anything unusual it was just the same theme and this was the Kawasaki type. The 73cc was one of Kawasaki’s most prominent rivals with 4.3bhp not so much a ride because the weight was under 60 kg and with the folding bars it could easily be picked up and put behind a car. You will see them many for resale especially from American import.

This bike had a fatback type and a spindly front with chopper inspired look, the AV50 seems like a piece from the 1970s. It is quite weird because it was introduced in 1983 and was produced until 1990. The leading rider seat was right on top of the rear wheel which made the handling will be aware to anyone who has driven a ridden Raleigh Chopper. It has the only 5bp, and one heir list they must have the wheelie unexpectedly if you go on a hill.

This bike is like a recipe of its own like for example one superbike engine included with a cruiser or a drag bike style machine. It turns out to be a Ducati plus a Diavel for many years, but unlikely Kawasaki ZL900 Eliminator had a similar concept in 1985. And that was the answer to Yamaha V max. But this the Eliminator could never hit the marks of Kawasaki, but the original 900 was the pure mode of it. It replaced with 1000cc with a better and softer style, getting rid of the exposed rear wheel and a silly handlebar and a more still rear mudguard.

7. Tengai (1989-91)

Like in today’s time or generation every other you bike see or know is a sports adventure bike or a dual-sport type. And this bike the Tengai pretty much has both the similarity. For example you can say that KLR650 has bodywork with a few additions of refinements and on the road it is comfortable. It looked good and was great on the way but somehow it got ignored mainly against the Honda’s Translip and Yamaha Tenere’s. It is strange when we also know that it was one of the longest-running models in Kawasaki history, and if you buy it still or find one today than it will cost only a few hundred dollars or quid.

6. GPz250R (1986-87)

You should not get confused with GPZ250 with the GPZ250R which came in the 1988s and was still found until 2007, this bike was the first which introduced the parallel-twin engine meaning it is a direct run nowadays Ninja 300 motor. In the mid-80s there was something good about it maybe it was the GPZ250R styling. Some of its parts were odd today but still have some standard.

5. Balius 250 (1989-2008)

Top Ten Interesting Kawasaki Motorcycles of All Times

This bike was produced about 20 years ago and it was built for 20 years too but it remains unknown in UK markets because it was never sold officially. And this bike was from that era when the Japanese were in love with the tiny four-cylinder engines, and it kept using the same motor like the ZXR250 race rep but it was fixed naked. Steel frame and a standard bike type. 40bhp when at 15000rpm and it 19000 rpm when redlined. And the maximum speed was 114mph but it looked a lot more.

4. Z2 (1973-78)

The Z1 of Kawasaki was most popular back in the times. And Z2 its little brother was not so famous because it barely went out. The real name for this bike is 750RS but generally known as Z1 it has 746cc engine. You can get 69bhp out of it instead of 82 but that the only difference we find. Sadly, we see these very few only in japan.

3. ZX-4 (1988)

Top Ten Interesting Kawasaki Motorcycles of All Times

This bike was quickly replaced even before it got famous on the roads, also though it had a pretty good impression. In 1988 it was put on sale, in the time when GPZ400 and ZXR400 both were a lot more popular models also in markets. It was only produced for one year but still manage to have a lot of significant parts like the E-box aluminum frame. And one step updated ahead from the GPZ and the ZXR400 collection. With bigger brakes and braced swingarm, it also had upside-down forks.

2. KR250 Tandem Twin (1984-87)

KR1 and KR-1S from Kawasaki are fully loaded with greatness. It is a two-stroke sports bike; in the UK the KR250 wasn’t quickly found that’s why we know they are few on the roads. With 45bhp tandem twin-engine almost as the twin parallel-twin bike that replace them. So know you imagine two bikes with tandem twin aligned together and both of their cranked shifts geared too and they move as one. After some time the KR250 was also updated with the power valve.

1. Xanthus 1992-1996

Top Ten Interesting Kawasaki Motorcycles of All Times

Kawasaki was not the only who had an obsession with four-cylinder 400cc machine, but we have found that in the 80s and 90s it made many types and similar theme than its rival. For example we have inline the ZXR400, ZZR400, Zephyr 400 and Xanthus. If one was a sports bike than the other was a sports tour bike, same as if one was a naked bike than another would be filled space naked bike. It was not something new that we hadn’t seen, like Kawasaki had converted the naked version of GPz400R into FX400R. With personal chassis that was unique and a swing arm and wheel with own bodywork and clock. The engine could go up to 53bhp.
