Inhaltsangabe: Just as Kawasaki was about to green-light the world s first mass-produced across-the-frame four-cylinder motorcycle, Honda pulled the rug out from under them, unveiling the CB750-4 at the Tokyo Show in 1968. It lit the fuse for what was to become motorcycling s most explosive decade. In never before published interviews, with the men responsible for the bike code-named New York Steak, Dave Sheehan relates the story behind the Z1 s development; the secret US testing programme in which a team including Imola-race winner Paul Smart rode pre-production bikes disguised as Hondas coast-to-coast across America. The Kawasaki Z1 Story examines the myth, truth and legend surrounding the Z1 s first race win of which even Kawasaki knew nothing. Here, too, is the full story of the epic three days at Florida s legendary Daytona Speedway when a trio of Z1s broke more than 50 speed endurance records.
