Kawasaki's strength in the naked bike class is about to go an extra level with the news of a forthcoming Z800 Supernaked. To be released at Intermot in October, very few details have been released of the new bike other than its capacity, and that it will combine "an innovative approach and a design that looks to the future, with several updates regarding chassis, engine and ease of use."

Equipped with more power and more torque from the new 806cc engine, Kawasaki says the successor to the hugely popular Z750 will be released with a full range of original accessories designed to enable riders to customize the bike.
