Following a line of fire-breathing 500, 750 and 350/250cc 2-stroke triple models, Kawasaki launched its first 400 version in 1973. The new 400 S3 featured a front disc brake, a rubber-mounted engine and a longer wheelbase, as well as a little less horsepower than its 350 S2 predecessor due to tightening emissions regulations. Although slightly down on performance, the S3 could nudge 110mph and raced through the 1/4-mile in a little over 14 seconds. The model designation changed to KH in 1976 when CDI ignition replaced the old contact points system. Outrageous and uncompromising in their day, these charismatic Kawasaki triples have become highly collectible in recent years.
This fantastic Kawasaki KH400 is finished in a rare light blue colour. It is in unrestored condition and is showing only 20,000kms showing on the odometer. It comes to sale with ASI certification and its Italian Libretto registration documentation.
