Tamiya - 1/6 Kawasaki Z1300 Engine. The Heart of a Z1300
When it was released in 1979, the Kawasaki Z1300 had a larger engine than any of its Japanese-made competitors. The 1,286cc liquid-cooled inline-6 DOHC engine had an output 120hp, in a shaft-driven system, and the results were outstanding: a top speed of 220km/h, with a 0-400m time of 12 seconds. From winding mountain passes to open road touring, the Z1300 was at home wherever it went, with an alluring combination of performance and balance. Now, the engine at the heart of that motorcycle masterpiece is available as a detailed 1/6 scale kit.
