The Z1 featured full instrumentation and an electric start, produced 82 bhp and had a maximum speed of 130 mph to 132 mph(210 km/hr). It met with positive reviews from the motorcycle press, who praised its smoothness, damped vibration, easy-starting, straight-line stability and linear acceleration. Steering was accurate and the bike handled well, but testers said the rear tire, chain and rear shocks all wore out quickly.
