Independent Reviews

'When a true afficiando who really loves the bike writes the book, you can immediately tell ... The book is a brief yet fact-filled guide to learning about and buying a Z1 to Z900 and if you're interested in that bike and are planning on buying one, be sure to read this book first.'

'... an invaluable source of information that could save you an
expensive mistake!'
Bike Rider magazine, 2013

'Brilliant Book, highly recommended: What a brilliant book! It tells you all you need to know when looking for a Z1. This guy really knows his Z1's and goes into great detail explaining what to look for when buying one. You would have to be mad to look at buying a Z1 without this book in your pocket, it could save you thousands! I didn't realise there where so many minor changes between models.
Even if you don't buy a Z1 it is a great read for any Kawasaki fan. '
***** customer

'Fantastic read if you are interested in Kawasaki. I have no intention of buying a Z1 or Z900 but this book was still worth buying. Goes into fantastic detail of the Z1, Z1A, Z1B and Z900. gives precise information on the changes between the models. It makes a good read for any fan of Kawasaki Motorcycles. would make a good stocking filler along with The Kawasaki story ISBN1 85960 613X also available through Amazon.
Book size 145MM X 195MM 64 pages all photos are colour. '
