The 1978 Kawasaki Z1-R motorcycle was intended to be little more than a styling exercise from its predecessors. The tank was drawn up using flat, angular lines that were mimicked by the triangular side panels and sharply creased front fender. The fiberglass fairing followed suit, and all the bodywork was sprayed with specially blended Ice Blue metallic paint that was used only on the 1978 Kawasaki Z1-R motorcycle.

Claimed power: 90hp @ 8000 rpm.
Top speed: 132mph (period test)
Engine type: 1016cc air-cooled DOHC
Brakes: Triple disc with drilled rotors
