In 1984 kawasaki released the GPZ900R, it won bike of the year and became the worlds fastest bike with a top speed of over 250km/h. It was also the first kawasaki to carry the name “ninja”. After the success of the GPZ900R kawasaki released the 600cc version, which became a best seller, and was one of the first 600cc supersports. In 1986 they changed from GPZ to ZX but that didn’t change the ground breaking performance. For decades kawasaki have been setting the bar for performance. Their bikes may have changed shape, design, colour and engine size but the “ninjas” still remain the flagship sports models of kawasaki. The current line up is more versatile than ever, with 5 models ranging from a 300, for A2 licence holders to the flagship ZX-10R. And one thing is for sure, they’re green and stand out in a crowd.
