Kawasaki release details of new Z800 for 2013

Forty years after the birth of the original Z1 Super Four, the Z800 takes the Z design in a bold, aggressive new direction. While the appearance of its popular predecessor may now be considered a classic of its time, for the Z800 designers were given free rein to pursue a more vivid expression of the Z brand for this newest machine in the hard fought mid-size class.

Engineers were equally unconstrained when it came to engine and chassis design. With a larger engine
displacement and increased chassis performance delivering even greater exhilaration, the Z800 offers an exciting and expressive choice of ride that makes other options pale in comparison.

Key Features

More performance!

  • Larger bore size increases displacement from 748 cm3 to 806 cm3
  • Strong torque right from low-rpm
  • Explosive high-rpm In-Line Four power
  • Ultra-smooth power delivery

Improved Chassis

Sporty potential yet light, rider-friendly handling character, increased suspension and front brake performance, and slimmer ergonomics all yield increased chassis performance.

Unleashed Design

“Ferocious” design: New front cowl design is a key element of the Z800’s more aggressive styling, giving it a fiercer glaring appearance. Shrouds and under-cowl appear to grip the engine. The image is like a snarling beast holding prey in its mouth.

Modern Instrumentation

New instrument panel design adds to the bike’s advanced design and features multi-function LCD screens and a level-meter style tachometer.
