The Kawasaki Z750 will be replaced by the all-new Z800, Kawasaki has revealed.

The new bike will use an 806cc inline four cylinder engine and has been heavily restyled to bring it more inline with the aggresive look of the Z1000.

The current Z750 has been around virtually unchanged since 2007 and the changes will bring the bike up to speed in the highly competitive middleweight naked class which includes bikes like the Triumph Street Triple, Suzuki GSR750 and Ducati Monster 796.

The new bike will be revealed to the public for the first time at the Intermot show on October 2.
