Powered by a liquid cooled 806cc inline four cylinder engine, Kawasaki’s middleweight contender cranks out max power figures of 113 ps @ 10200 rpm and peak torque rated at 83 nm @ 8000 rpm. With styling cues borrowed from the earlier generation Z1000 and reeking of similar aggression, Kawasaki states that the Z800 proudly takes the Z family legend forwards. The Z800 has the styling, personality and engineering to take on all challengers and deliver a truly knockout punch.
