The KR1S is a very rare bike in Europe but it gives a lot of fun. This bike comes from Netherlands.

It is interesting to note Kawasaki gave it the same Horsepower numbers as the ubiquitous H1 500...! :o

That happened as a result of Kawasaki discovering the transfer port. :lol:

Reed valves, power valves, electronic ignition, big flat slide carbs...much like my TZR and NSR. A fun bike for sure. I wonder how difficult finding parts for them are?

They were not sold in the US so nothing here. Parts can be found but need to be shipped in overseas. Usually shipping costs will more than quadruple the overall cost. :e4 But it does not take much to set land speed records with one. :thumbup:
