1979 Kawasaki Kz650 on 2040-motos
Kawasaki KZ650 description
A rare find ... great example of a classic Kawasaki. Perfectly maintained and a beautiful ride. Kept original. Needs nothing. New Metzeler Lasertec tires. Custom rack included. Tail bag (pictured) not included.
This is a D2 Model - Differences from 1978 D1:
Chrome was used on the headlamp shell, clock lowers and chain guard. The rear tailpiece was dropped in place of a painted rear fender. The front exhaust downpipes were crossed over and the mufflers were made a bit shorter. The rear wheel was now a small but fat 16-inch item for that all-important custom look. In America there was also a D1A model in 1978 and an E model in 1980, which were very similar but did not have as much equipment. The D2 also got the drilled brake discs and sintered pads from the C3 model of this year as well as the new "automatic" cam chain tensioner mentioned in the B3
Don't miss this one!
From Cycle Guide -
With the limited-production KZ650 SR, the latest of Kawasaki's factory-built, custom-like boulevard buzzers, the company has created a flash-cycle which will provide pleasure for more than profiling. Although the 650 SR has received a full complement of chopper-esque styling touches from its wide, 16-inch, flat-black-and-polished alloy rear wheel to its bobbed and pin-striped front fender, the stylists apparently remembered that after the ogling is over, someone has to actually ride the motorcycle.
For example, consider comfort, one of the most-often sacrificed aspects
of semi-chopped boulevard cruisers. Look at the SR's carefully styled seat
which recalls Triumph customs and yet still complements the Harley-like
suggestions in the tank and rear wheel. When you're done looking, you can
climb on and know that it will be over two hours before the saddle even
begins to feel stiff. The handlebar looks right but isn't radical enough to
ever cramp your arms or bend them at awkward angles. The lean-look front
fork glides smoothly over most bumps and the rear shocks keep the ride

Of the “Big Four” Japanese motorcycle manufacturers, Kawasaki stands out from Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha in at least one notable way: it doesn’t produce scooters. Well, at least not for developed western markets. In the Philippines, Kawasaki offers a 112cc step-through scooter called the Curve, pictured above, while other Asian markets get underbone-style models like the Indonesian Kawasaki Edge R.
