This is a bike that doesn’t get much airplay anymore. Apart from the legendary KZ400.com (appropriate name). Originally run by Odd Ivar Bekkelund, who was obsessed with the KZ400. Unfortunatley he passed away last year (2008) and his son has left all his Dads posts and hard work up in memory of his Dad. The “original” Kawasaki KZ400 was a 398cc twin cylinder produced from 1974-1984. These motorcycles were marketed as fuel efficient transportation back in the 70′s. So you could say they were like the Prius of the bike world. It doesn’t make a bad Cafe racer either.
