KAWASAKI 500 H1-D - 1973

The H1D was the successor of the Mach3 H1 A-B. In addition to a new styling, it recovers the CDI ignition identical to the 750 H2 and the front disc already fitted on the short-lived H1B. A sublime design which would become the basis of all the triples in the Kawasaki range for many years to come !
