'When it appeared in 1984, the GPz900R moved the goalposts in the performance bike market. It was the first real 150mph bike and it was at the cutting edge of motorcycle development with four valves per cylinder, liquid cooling, rising-rate rear suspension, a 16" front wheel and anti-dive forks.' - Bike magazine.

Reviewing Kawasaki's increasingly collectible 'time machine' in its November 2002 issue, Britain's best-selling motorcycle magazine rated the GPz900R a decent sports tourer (even by today's standards) and a good budget buy with an excellent club spares back-up. Indeed, so successful was this iconic model that it remained in production for an unprecedented 13 years while successors came and went. Today, exceptional examples are commending ever-increasing prices.

And there can be few examples better than that offered here, which was acquired by the vendor in October 2012 and subsequently fully restored to an exceptional standard with no expense spared. Photographically documented on an accompanying CD-ROM (viewing recommended), the restoration included a full engine rebuild; new paintwork and decals; wheels repainted and polished; switch gear, instruments and brake callipers restored; forks rebuilt with re-chromed stanchions; anti-dive rebuilt; electrics overhauled; cooling system restored; and the carburettors stripped and overhauled. New parts fitted include the seat, brake discs, control cables and mirrors, while every nut, bolt and fastener was either restored or replaced.

Presented in effectively 'as new' condition, having covered only 255 miles since the rebuild, this beautiful classic Kawasaki is offered with manufacturer's brochure, a quantity of expired MoTs, SORN paperwork, V5C registration document, MoT to April 2015 and a dynamometer printout (95.16bhp). The provision of braided brake hoses is the only notified deviation from factory specification.
