A Japanese made motorcycle, the Kawasaki GTR1000 was in production from 1986-1999. It has a 997 cc water cooled, in line, four stroke engine, and a top speed of 121mph (195km/h).

The 1000 GTR corners surprisingly well but it's top heavy and you'll need to shift your bodyweight to make it turn into hairpins, but the overall handling is okay for most people's idea of a tourer. The suspension should be checked regularly on any used 1000 GTR, the bike can weave if it's neglected. The only other area to keep an eye on is the air-assisted suspension, which can be leaky and can wear after a few years. The bike is still popular today, an early model used 1000 GTR motorcycle can fetch up to $2,000.
