1975 Kawasaki 750 H2




Not sure what I've gotten myself into with this thing, but I cannot
wait to ride it. It needs a little love, some fiberglass work due to
ethanol ... but the thing fired the day I brought it home and it
sounded like a three cylinder chainsaw ...

Stay tuned!!!



Press reports

“As expected, the Mach IV is an absolute jet, leaves all sorts of
rubber on the pavement, pulls strongly in every gear, and shows
absolutely no lag as you click your way from first to fifth.” — Cycle
World, November 1971

“Like its predecessor, the Mach III, the new 750 Mach IV is a
rocket. The only drawback is that getting to the moon first, or to
the next tavern as the case may be, costs money. If your daddy
has a gas station and your uncle owns a tire store you’ll be better
off than most Mach IV owners. If not, the local gas pump jockey will
be on a first name basis with you and the tire man will call you up
on your birthday.”  — Cycle, December 1971

“The Mach IV rates as the ultimate stud bike right now available in
terms of raw power and sheer speed, although it does lack the
refinement of some strictly touring machines. If being the fastest
on your block appeals to you, so will the Mach IV!”  — Cycle
World, March 1972

“The Kawasaki H2B is perhaps the best remaining example of the
superbike concept — where performance is paramount and very
little interferes with it. Its superbike character is manifested in its
engine, which has more power and performance than any other
750 street machine.”   — Cycle Guide, September 1974

“Without a doubt, Kawasaki’s awesome 750 Triple is a bike that
has outlived its usefulness. It was conceived at a time when the
buying public was preoccupied with acceleration. Gut-grabbing
acceleration. And little else. And the bike delivered to the tune of
mid-12-second quarter-miles and wheelies that would stop your
heart.”
— Cycle World, March 1975

“Time has dictated that a change is due. Perhaps overdue. And in
a way that’s sad because brute power machines like the H2 turned
a lot of people on at a time when all of us could afford to be
carefree.”   — Cycle World, March 1975
