The Z1B, introduced in 1975, featured different tank livery and the plain alloy finish for the upper engine first seen on the Z1A, together with minor mechanical alterations including the adoption of a sealed drive chain and the deletion of the chain oiler.

In 1976 the model was mildly revised yet again and renamed ‘Z900’, gaining twin front discs and 26mm carburettors among other more minor changes. Few bikes from Japan have had as much of an impact on the motorcycling world as Kawasaki’s original ‘Big Zed’, and today all versions of this landmark model are highly sought after.
