Jump to: navigation, search
1971 Kawasaki G4TR

The Kawasaki G4TR Trail Boss was a 100cc, single cylinder, dual-purpose motorcycle manufactured by Kawasaki from 1970 through 1978.

This was a true trail bike for the expanding trail bike market in the USA featuring a unique quick-change gearing system which could change into a high/low ratio enabling it to have 10 speeds. The G4TR had raised fenders front and rear, very good front fork travel, adequate ground clearance, raised exhaust, a skid plate making this motorcycle superb for enduro use.
