2015 Z800 ABS
More than 40 years after the birth of the original Z, the 2015 Z800 ABS carries on the spirit, and takes the design in an aggressive, modern direction. Designers were given free rein on the Z800 ABS to pursue a vivid expression of the Z brand for the mid-size class. Engineers were equally unconstrained when it came to engine and chassis design; a punchy inline four cylinder engine and sharp handling chassis, the 2015 Z800 offers an exciting and expressive choice of ride that makes other options seem pale in comparison.
Increased displacement via a larger bore offers increased performance at all rpm. Stronger low-mid range torque offers greater usability in everyday riding situations. Fuel injection with a high-capacity ECU, ultra-fine injectors and larger throttle bodies with sub-throttles all contribute to ultra-smooth power delivery.
Tubular backbone chassis
Tubular backbone chassis design with engine sub-frame and new connecting pipe, and revised chassis rigidity offer great feedback to the rider, communicating what the bike is doing in all situations.
Excellent road-holding ability
Inverted fork contributes to the Z800’s quick, nimble handling, excellent road-holding ability and superb feedback. Combine this with rear suspension built to attack the tighest of twisties and the Z800 ABS is the machine to suit your desired riding experience.
Foward and attacking with true feedback and instictive feel, the Z800 renews the raucous joy of riding a Kawasaki Z.
Piggyback reservoir offers increased cooling performance. Rear shock repositioned to the left side for better left-right balance.
Riding position was designed to enable the rider to become one with the bike, contributing to outstanding machine control. New seat design contributes to increased comfort for rider and passenger.
The Z800 features a compact and lightweight Nissin motorcycle ABS unit. The unit is located under the rider’s seat, contributing to increased room for storage under the passenger seat.
