Kawasaki GPZ500S Specs…..
The Kawasaki GPZ500S was a bikini faired, 498cc sports motorcycle produced by Kawasaki in the UK between 1987 and 2004.
Confusingly, the bike was called the ‘GPZ500S’ in Europe and the UK, the ‘EX500’ in the US and other areas for a while then the name outside Europe was changed to the ‘Ninja 500’ in the mid 1990’s and the Ninja 500R in the late 1990’s).
The GPZ 500 S was a popular mid range sports bike with good reliability, decent handling and a good engine that loved to be revved. The bike was marketed to the ‘biking on a budget’ crowd, and although this showed in some areas (like brakes and shocks), it was generally cheap to run, maintain and insure making it very popular with commuters, 1st time ‘big’ bikers and couriers.
Although probably a bit ‘long in the tooth’ by today’s standards, it’s still a popular bike and things like the fairing and engine still make it fun to ride for commuting or a weekend blast.General information
