New Kawasaki Z800 revealed

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...

Needs to be much better than the 2012 Z750R

Needs to be lighter,  handle better & not a boring pastiche.

Continuing with the black/dark green colours is a good decision - like it.

Kawasaki Z800

Oh yeah, just what the biking world needs, another garish plastic covered non-classic looking water cooled sportbike.

I'll take a Thruxton, W800 or Sportster any day.

Z800

Lets hope it has more power and torque and weighs less than a Z1000 this time around and lets not forget ABS and maybe traction control to keep up with everyone else Kawasaki.  
Z800
Power: 110bhp
Torque: 65lb.ft
Wet weight: 190kg
How hard would it be?

Z800/ZX6R Video on Youtube. ABS on both.

What have we got then?

BHP: 111. Good

Torque: 61 lbft. Could do better but not bad

Wet Weight: 229kg Fail

Why Kawasaki. Steel frame and not Aluminium, once again the small Z weighs more than the big, fail.

Z800's friendly character makes it an accommodating mount even for beginners? Then why a seat height of 834 mm, that’s higher than the Z1000`s, fail.

Once again Kawasaki you have screwed it up, this could have been a king of the middleweights instead of a bum.

Looks like the accountants win again in making manufacturing decisions.

Nice engine, shame it’s 39kg to heavy.
