The Kawasaki Triples Bible: All road models 1968-1980, plus H1R and H2R racers in profile By Alastair Walker Cover Image


The Kawasaki Triples Bible covers the entire production of three cylinder two-strokes from 1968 to 1980, featuring a year-by-year breakdown of bike specs, including the KH250, 350 S2, KH400, H1 500 and H2 750 models.

The book is llustrated with hundreds of archive photographs and period advertisements. It includes personal memories from some of the racers and tuners who got the best from the fearsome H1R 500 and H2R machines in Europe and the USA, as well as road riders who owned the triples back in the 1970s.

There are technical tips and advice from experienced Kawasaki triple enthusiasts and club members worldwide, plus information from some early dealers in the Kawasaki marque. The book also contains useful advice on spares availability, tuning, and future market values, and tries to capture the essence of what made the Kawasaki triples the most rebellious, kick-ass two-strokes of their time. This unique book is an invaluable resource for any collector, restorer, or just a fan of these fabulous two-stroke motorcycles.
