(the following extract has been taken from the GTR 1000 brochure)


Have you ever considered that, merely by striking off on the road that runs by your home, virtually the entire continent becomes ultimately accessible? And when you are accessing it from the seat of a Kawasaki touring motorcycle, you are fully rewarded for your efforts, as your senses embrace the panorama flowing by around you.

Introducing the Kawasaki's instant tour package: 1000GTR. Updated for 1994 with a wide variety of new and revised features.

The specially-tuned, 997 cm3 DOHC four cylinder engine offers plenty of mid-range power, plus a superb top-end, to easily accommodate two riders and a full load of luggage.

A rigid diamond frame gains added strength by using the engine as a stressed member. The new front fork has spring preload adjusters on top of each fork leg, and the Uni-Trak rear suspension system is air adjustable, too, so you can set up the bike for the area you want to access.
You might even want to give the sportbikers a run for their money.

The GTR's full-coverage fairing and high windscreen deflect natures worst. And the huge, 28.5-litre fuel tank gives you the range to search for better weather. Your search will be comfortable, too, with the new seat thats broad and long enough for two.


Revised instrument layout set in a new inner cowl makes life on the road easier: twin resettable trip-meters for recording your journey, a digital clock plus a convienient fuel gauge.

New semi-floating front disc brakes with BAC calipers offer strong stopping power while the wider front wheel and tyre offer sure-footed handling and control
Twin lockable storage compartments in the inner cowl keep your touring essentials within easy reach
Each 35 litre pannier* holds a full face helmet, yet detaches with a flit of a latch. When removed, panels hide the mounting points. *Optional in some markets
