Buyer’s Guide Model Detail

Colours shown may not be available in Canada.
Bit of an odd one this when Kawasaki already has the Z1000, but the 800 is arguably just small enough to hit the mid-sized category and is very similar to the 1000 with an inline four cylinder engine, naked styling and ABS as standard.
