FIRST ’120MPH’ 250 UN­VEILED

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - PS World -

Kawasaki stole the 1983 Toyko show with its newly un­veiled KR250: a tan­dem-twin replica of the firm’s GP bike, and ca­pa­ble of (Kawasaki claimed) a true 120mph. It wasn’t true. But that didn’t stop the KR from be­ing a big hit in Ja­pan and Aus­trala­sia. Sadly we only got it as a grey im­port.

Lovely thing
