Kawasaki followed up its trend-setting GPz900R superbike of 1984 with the GPZ1000RX, which after only two years in production was superseded by the ZX10. Introduced for 1988, the latter boasted an aluminium 'E-box' frame and was 35lbs lighter than its steel-framed predecessor. The extensively revised 16-valve water-cooled engine now produced 137bhp, which was good enough for a top speed knocking on 170mph. UK customers had to make do with 'only' 125bhp courtesy of the industry's 'gentlemen's agreement' to restrict maximum power, though the missing horses were easily reinstated by modifying the carburettor tops to enable the slides to open fully. Bodywork was similar to the outgoing GPz's but featured a higher screen giving greater wind protection to the rider. This example of Kawasaki's cutting-edge 1980s superbike benefits from recent restoration of the bodywork and brakes, a full re-spray, new decals and a full service. Described by the vendor as in generally excellent condition, this beautiful future-classic is offered with a quantity of expired MoTs, V5C registration document and MoT to December 2015. The current odometer reading is 21,563 miles.
