The stamped-in supercharged name on the side of the engine is made very clear in the latest video.

Kawasaki is ramping up the excitement for it’s new supercharged Z model motorcycle, due out in three weeks time at the Tokyo Motor Show in Japan, with a second teaser video (above) which gives us a bit more of a glimpse of the upcoming bike.

Logo and lights start the video.
This is the left shoulder of the bike with the edge of the seat unit in the background.

The first video that showed a supercharger spinning up and an electrified Z logo was put out by the factory a fortnight ago, the latest video (called ‘Ultimate Z’ by Kawasaki) shows us parts of the new bike, more sounds of a supercharged four-cylinder engine with a quickshifter play briefly in the background and the same Z logo appears before an October 23 date finishes the video’s short 18 second run.

Here’s the TFT dash that’s shown in the video. Aside from it starting up, there’s no other information displayed on the screen.

What do you reckon to this? Is a 200bhp supercharged naked Z enough to get your wallet out for next year? Going up against the likes of Aprilia’s Tuono and the MT10 SP means that this particular bike needs to pack a big punch when the covers are officially taken off later this month.

The electrified Z logo appears once again.
And now we know the date when the bike is going to be unveiled.
