Automaxx 1/12 scale model motorcycles are highly detailed and measure approximately 7 inches long by 4inches high by 2 inches wide, depending on the particular model. They are made of a combination of diecast metal and plastic parts.They have a working kick stand, the handle bars can steer and the wheels can spin. These models don’t need any assembly or painting. They are ready for display out of the box (or even inside the box).
These models, as any other scale models, are fragile and not intended to be used as toys to be played with unless one is very careful (Recommended for 5 year old and older). Branding and paint schemes are accurate.
These models come packaged in a window box which measures approximately 8.5 inches long by 3.25 inches wide by 5 inch high.
The Kawasaki Z750, also called Z2, 750RS, Z750RS, Z750D or Z750 FOUR was introduced in 1973 as a smaller displacement "brother model" to their already successful Z1 (900) for the Japanese market.
Visually the Z2 is very similar to the Z1 with the only difference being the smaller engine. The new 746 cc DOHCengine was built with newly designed pistons and crankshaft parts to give it a feel similar to the Z1's 900 cc engine. At that time, both engines from the Z1 an Z2 were the only DOHC four cylinder (Honda's DOHC CB450 was a twin cylinder motor) engines available in a Japanese built motorcycle. The engine had a maximum output of 69ps at 9,000 rpm and could propel the Z2 to a maximum speed of 190 km/h.
Production of the Z2 began in March 1973 and the bike recorded sales that were 10% higher than its nearest 750 cc competitor.
