The Undisputed Super Middleweight…

For those aspiring to their first machine in the middle weight super-naked category, there is now something truly outstanding on offer in terms of style and specification, the new Z800 e version. Available either as a 70kw machine or fully compliant with A2 licence regulation in its 35kw form, this is a motorcycle with style and panache plus a reassuring new engine and chassis package that delivers confidence, making the Z family as accessible as ever.

Available in ABS, ABS Performance, Non-ABS and Non-ABS Performance versions.

Optional ABS

ABS Models feature a compact and lightweight Nissin motorcycle ABS unit. The unit is located under the rider’s seat, contributing to increased room for storage under the passenger seat. Coulour Scheme shown of Z800




Sudden over-application of the brakes, or braking on low-grip surfaces (surfaces with a low coefficient of friction) such as wet asphalt or manhole covers may cause a motorcycle’s wheel(s) to lock up and slip. ABS was developed to prevent such incidents. Kawasaki ABS systems are controlled by high precision and highly reliable programming formulated based on thorough testing of numerous riding situations. By ensuring stable braking performance, they offer rider reassurance that contributes to greater riding enjoyment.

And to meet the special requirements of certain riders, specialised ABS systems are also available. For example, KIBS (Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System) is a high-precision brake system designed specifically for supersport models, enabling sport riding to be enjoyed by a wider range of riders. And by linking the front and rear brakes, K-ACT (Kawasaki Advanced Coactive-braking Technology) ABS provides the confidence to enjoy touring on heavyweight models. Kawasaki is continually working on the development of other advanced ABS systems.

2016 Kawasaki Z800E ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Highly communicative chassis



While maintaining a highly sporty nature, the Z800’s friendly character makes it an accomodating mount even for beginners. Increased road holding performance, and hence traction, on all types of road surfaces enables both sporty and friendly riding characteristics. Tubular backbone chassis design with engine sub-frame and new connecting pipe, and revised chassis rigidity offer great feedback to the rider, communicating what the bike is doing in all situations.

806 cm3 liquid-cooled, 4-stroke In-line Four tuned for strong low-mid range torque



With its larger displacement, the Z800 engine offers increased performance at all RPM. The greater performance is especially noticeable in the low-mid range, adding greater everyday usability as well as increased riding exhilaration. Shorter final gearing complements the new engine character and emphasises the Z800’s stronger acceleration.

Enhanced braking performance

New opposed, 4-piston calipers (ABS version only) gripping larger-diameter 310 mm petal discs deliver formidable stopping power with superb control and feel. Colour scheme shown of Z800



41 mm inverted fork

41mm KYB Inverted fork contributes to the Z800’s quick, nimble handling, excellent road-holding ability and superb feedback. Optimized for the increased engine and revised frame rigidity. Colour Scheme shown of Z800

Natural riding position

The relationship between pegs, seata and handlebars was designed to enhance communication between rider and machine, giving the rider a confidence-inspiring feeling of control that perfectly complements its accurate and precise handling qualities. New seat design contributes to increased comfort for rider and passenger. Colour scheme shown of Z800



Full digital instrumentation

The Z800’s futuristic looking instrument panel features a triple LCD screen which includes a level-meter-style tachometer, fuel gauge, remaining range and the Economical Riding Indicator. Coulour Scheme shown of Z800


LED taillight

New taillight design features a “Z” pattern – a nice touch that complements the slim tail section of this latest Z-model. Coulour Scheme shown of Z800



Aggressive front cowl

Compact headlamp cowl uses a multi-facet design to create a more aggressive, glaring visage for the Z800. the fierce appearence is one of the key styling elements of the aggressive new design. Colour scheme shown of Z800

Sharp under-cowl

The under-cowl adds to the Z800’s street-fighter image and along with the engine shrouds contributes to the aggressive, visceral design. (optional) Colour scheme shown of Z800




Dual Throttle Valves



Late-model sport bikes often use large-bore throttle bodies to generate high levels of power. However, with large diameter throttles, when a rider suddenly opens the throttle, the unrestricted torque response is anything but gentle and often more than the rider can handle. Dual throttle valve technology was designed to tame engine response while contributing to performance.

On fuel-injected models, throttle bodies generally have only one throttle valve per cylinder. On models with dual throttle valves, there are two throttle valves per cylinder: in addition to the main valves, which are physically linked to the throttle grip and controlled by the rider, a second set of valves, opened and closed by the ECU, precisely regulates intake airflow to ensure a natural, linear response. With the air passing through the throttle bodies becoming smoother, combustion efficiency in improved and power is increased.

Like other Kawasaki engine management technology, Dual Throttle Valves were designed with the philosophy of “following the rider’s intention, while providing natural-feeling support.” They are featured on many Kawasaki models.

Economical Riding Indicator



Using high-precision electronic control for engine management, Kawasaki models can achieve a high level of fuel efficiency.

However, fuel consumption is greatly affected by throttle use, gear selection, and other elements under the rider’s control. The Economical Riding Indicator is a function that indicates when current riding conditions are consuming a low amount of fuel. The system continuously monitors fuel consumption, regardless of vehicle speed, engine speed, throttle position and other riding conditions. When fuel consumption is low for a given speed (i.e. fuel efficiency is high), an “ECO” mark appears on the instrument panel’s LCD screen. By riding so that the “ECO” mark remains on, fuel consumption can be reduced.

While effective vehicle speed and engine speed may vary by model, paying attention to conditions that cause the “ECO” mark to appear can help riders improve their fuel efficiency – a handy way to increase cruising range. Further, keeping fuel consumption low also helps minimise negative impact on the environment.
