The Kawasaki KZ1000R is a motorcycle produced by Kawasaki from 1978 to 1983.

Limited production replica version of the championship-winning Superbike ridden by Eddie Lawson. It is based on the KZ1000J. Special equipment includes gold painted allow wheels, Kerker exhaust, reservoir shocks, cut down seat, air adjustable forks, oil cooler, and drilled disk brakes. The ELR (Eddie Lawson Replica) is a very desirable model, sought after by collectors. There was also an even rarer version refered to as the S1 of which only 29 were ever produced.
