GPZ 750 Turbo in Toronto area

Kawasaki GPZ 750 Turbo ’85 on Kijiji Oshawa/Toronto

O.K. i just squeaked in under the 25 or older rule!

The Kawasaki 750 Turbo, the first of the short lived Japanese turbo era of the mid eighties.This bike was the rocket of all factory turbo bikes( Honda CX500 Turbo,  the Suzuki XN85 Turbo, and the Yamaha  Seca 650 Turbo.)

The GPZ and the XN85 were  definitely the sport bikes of the group, with the other two more to the sport touring side of things.  But the GPZ 750 Turbo  had both awesome accelleration and handling, the Suzuki had only the handling!  The big problem with the turbo bikes was that all the Japanese manufacturers had bigger bikes that were faster, but for less money (and complexity) than a Turbo.

This bike is in Whitby Ontario, just outside of Toronto.

The bike looks amazing, even has original tires (which need replaced).  Most Turbo’s with 19,00 km’s should have about 20 rear tires by now!!

The seller wants lots of cash for this bike, but man are you really going to find one thats this nice?
