1973 Kawasaki Z1 900 Description

The Z1 Kawasaki was a motorcycle introduced in 1972 by Kawasaki Heavy Industries. It has sometimes been described as the world’s first superbike. The Z1, long with Honda’s CB750 from 1969, ntroduced the four-cylinder, cross the frame, isc-braked layout to a wider public. The Z1 was groundbreaking in that it combined many different elements which previous motorcycles had used into one performance package. The Z1 Kawasaki was developed in strict secrecy under the project name “New York Steak”. Some years previously, awasaki, lready an established manufacturer of two-stroke motorcycles, ecided to make a 750cc 4-cylinder 4-stroke sports motorcycle; they were beaten to the market place by the Honda CB750. Apparently, he bosses at Kawasaki disapproved and ordered their designers to come up with something better.
