    They are hardly "cast offs" as there is a pretty strong market for them here in the US. Often they sell for double what a comparable kz1000 sells for. Mid 90s ones are easily over $4k.

    whats nice is they aren't that much different from the 70's kz and all the old speed tricks apply. When I was in Texas I saw one parked at a shopping mall with a turbo on it.

    is there a fella named "kopcycle" here? He's a regular at the XS forums and sings the praises of this bullet-proof motorcycle.

    Kawasaki were still listing KZ1000P 2 years ago, but, you could only buy them through local government and only as Police (no private sales)
