The new Z800 joins a list of brand new, pioneering and popular Kawasaki models released in recent years like the 2013 Ninja 300, the 2012 Versys 1000 and Vulcan 1700 Vaquero and the 2011 Ninja 1000 and W800. If the success of these new models are anything to go by, the new Z800 ABS looks set to become another widely accepted model for Kawasaki.
Following the highly popular Z750, the new Z800 ABS is the newest model in the Z family. 40 years after the birth of the original Z, the Z800 ABS takes the Z design in an aggressive new direction. While the design of its popular predecessor may be considered somewhat reserved, for the Z800 ABS designers were given free reign to pursue a more vivid expression of the Z brand for the mid-size class. Engineers were equally unconstrained when it came to engine and chassis design. With increased engine displacement and increased chassis performance delivering even greater exhilaration, the Z800 ABS offers an exciting and expressive choice of ride that makes other options seem pale in comparison.
