    more to come mate. thanks for the interest.

    I was a bit stunned myself to learn that the GPz900 was supposed to be a six cylinder. Imagine if they'd released it! The perfect swapout engine for the ninja 250R.

    - Kawasaki differed from the other manufacturers in the design and location of their turbo-charger unit.

    Thanks mate. It's by no means complete and its other peoples work which I have just compiled and I recommend reading the other historical threads in this section to get a more complete picture. I know I am missing some very notable things namely a lot of meguro info but I'll attempt to add it as it comes to hand.
