It's no secret that Europe's driving and licensing regulations are a bit on the harsh side when it comes to motorcycles, and with the new riders things are even worse.
With your riders, the A2 regulation states that no one is to ride a bike with more than 35 kW of power. Now, while no manufacturer will build completely different bikes for this situation, there is a possibility to derive a lower-specced bike from a standard high-power one, as long as the source-bike makes less than double that power.

So there we go, a nifty all-new Z800 bike, retaining the aggressive styling and sporty build which have made the new middleweight Z motorcycle famous already. Customers will enjoy the redesigned fairing and instrument cluster, sculpted tank and comfy riding position... just like on any other Z800.

Optional ABS and a bottom-Link Uni-Trak, gas-charged rear shock with 7-way preload adjustability makes the Z800 e handle incredibly well, suitable for calm daily commuting and racing your friends on countryside roads.
