Kawasaki KZ900A SERIES (76-77)

This bike looks like it could be any one of several models that look very similar: Z650, 750, 1000. The bike having been repainted and this scene having been shot at night, it makes it difficult to say which one it is. But, with the wire wheels, the rear drum brake, the shape of the valve covers and of the passenger grabrail, I say KZ900A. I'm aware that the factory KZ900A had four exhaust pipes and that this bike has only two, but I believe these pipes are aftermarket (they look kinda cheap!). In those days, few owners kept the original pipes (reproductions are $$$ today!). As for the two disc brakes, some countries got bikes with one, others got bikes with two. And, it was quite common for owners of single-disc bikes to put a second one on to improve on the performance of the so-so stock brakes.

À l'échappement près: 4 en 2. Les 900 étaient équipées de quatre splendides (et très recherchés) échappements distincts. Alors que le 1000, pour des raisons de poids (et de mode) arboraient ce fameux 4 en 2...

Not a Z900 (calipers behind fork legs) and definitely not a KZ, the K is a North America only prefix.

That's a Z 1000 A2
