The Kawasaki GPZ 1100 ABS, also known as the GPZ 1100 Horizont, was a sport-touring motorcycle that debuted in 1995 as a replacement for the GPZ 1100 manufactured between 1981 and 1985.

The bike was based on the ZZR-1100 engine without the ram air intake and was de-tuned for more mid-range performance. The sport-touring motorcycle was more oriented towards touring than sports and was available with an optional Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS).

In the visual department, the bike was equipped with standard features, such as a full fairing with parts of the engine left in plain sight, a small windscreen, a one-piece dual seat with a passenger grab handle, a dual exhaust system with a silencer on each side, a center stand, and three-spoke lightweight aluminum wheels.

The bike was built around a twin-spar steel frame with a 41 mm telescopic fork on the front, delivering 140 mm wheel travel and a four-way adjustable shock absorber on the rear with 115 mm wheel travel.

The braking performance was handled by two 300 mm discs tied to dual-piston calipers on the front wheel and a 250 mm disc with a single-piston caliper on the rear wheel, delivering optimum stopping power and safety enhanced by optional ABS.

In the performance department, the 1996 Kawasaki GPZ 1100 had its soul brought to life by a 1,089cc four-stroke four-cylinder air-cooled engine that delivered an output power of 129 hp at 9,500 rpm and 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) torque at 7,000 rpm.
