The Kawasaki KZ1000P was introduced into service in 1982 as a direct replacement for the original C series. Everything had been either redesigned or upgraded. The engine was now the more powerful J series. Although it retained features of the old C model, it is a much superior bike. This model has been for many years the standard police issue model for the American market. KZ1000s’ are run for 50,000 miles or 3 years before being replaced, a truly reliable workhorse. Kawasaki have stopped production of this model from 2005 although many are still being run in fleets.
