FIRST RIDE VIDEO: 2016 Kawasaki Z800

Kawasaki's middleweight naked comes to the USA.

Kawasaki staged a press ride for the 2016 Z800 sport naked in Palm Springs, California. A mix of urban and back road riding offered a good first impression of the 806c-inline-four powered machine. Sporty standard-style bikes like the Z800 make a great deal of sense for their balance of price, performance, and versatility.
