Kawasaki Voyager XII (ZG1200-A1, 1986)

Kawasaki ZG1200 Voyager first appeared in 1986 as a response to Honda GL1200 Gold Wing and was intended primarily for the US and Canadian markets.

Main competitors:

Kawasaki ZG1200 Voyager based on an in-line 4-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with a volume of 1196 cc. see, giving out 97 hp. power and 108 Nm of torque. The maximum performance of the motor is reached at 5000-7000 rpm. Unlike the Gold Wing 1200 engine, the ZG1200 Voyager has a slightly larger volume (1196 cc vs. 1182 cc), a higher compression ratio (10.0 vs. 9.0: 1) and a 16-valve twin-shaft (DOHC) cylinder head (in [ [Honda_GL1200_Gold_Wing | Gold Wing 1200]] - 8 valves, SOHC).

In terms of equipment, the Kawasaki ZG1200 Voyager model is in no way inferior to the "Gold" - 2 side + 1 central wardrobe trunk with an integrated backrest, cruise control, audio system, front and rear suspension pneumatic pumping.

Kawasaki ZG1200 was produced until 2003, after which it was discontinued and no longer sold. Unlike the Gold Wing series, which in 1987 was updated to Gold Wing 1500, and by 2001 it had grown to Gold Wing 1800, the Kawasaki Voyager 1200 was produced practically unchanged and did not receive further development. ... Obviously, this was due to the fact that Kawasaki did not want to once again copy the new generations of the Gold Wing and thereby finally kill the model, but decided to leave the luxury tourer of 80s design, which would be in sufficient demand in the North American market and not would look outdated compared to the classic-shaped bikes popular in the region.

The model was replaced by:
