Kawasaki supports the Tour de France

This Sunday. the 2008 Tour de France arrives on the Champs-Elysee for it's final leg. And right alongside the powerhouse cyclists astride their skinny machines, you'll find a powerhouse of another kind...the Kawasaki 1400GTR.

This marks the 31st straight year that Kawasaki has provided motorcycles to the Tours organizer. The arrangement began in 1977 with the popular Z650 and has passed through a half-dozen models before the introduction of the Kawasaki's uber-touring machine, the 1400GTR. The 29 motorcycles are charged with everything from transporting event personel, judges and journalists, indicating the gaps between the breakaway groups and the peloton and providing medical and publicity services.
