Derived from the Z500, Kawasaki's first offering in the '550' category was the GPz550 of 1981, which in typical Kawasaki fashion immediately set new performance standards for the class. That first twin-shock D1 model lasted for only a single season before being superseded by a revised H1 version boasting mono-shock (Uni-Trak in Kawasaki parlance) rear suspension. Another major revision occurred in 1983 and in this restyled form the GPz550 lasted in the range into 1988, despite the fact that its place as Kawasaki's top sports middleweight had been taken by the GPz600 a few years previously. Before then, in 1983, a touring version equipped with shaft drive – the Z550GT – had been added to the line-up and this immensely successful model would enjoy one of the longest production runs of any Kawasaki motorcycle, lasting into 2002. This GPz550 currently displays a believed genuine total of circa 33,000 kilometres (approximately 20,500 miles) on the odometer and is described as in generally good condition. Offered with Italian Estratto Cronologico and FMI Passport, the machine has not been used for the last four years and will require a full service prior to further use. No reserve.
