Derived from the more race oriented ZXR-750, the ZX-7R was Kawasaki's attempt to make a "Race Replica" superbike available to the motorcycling public.

The motorcycle is a 749cc in-line four cylinder four-stroke capable in standard form of speeds of over 160mph (255 km/h). Braking and suspension have been influenced by technology developed on the race tracks and have resulted in a motorcycle of prodigious stability and reliability. The basic model has remained unchanged for eight years from its inception to its last production run in 2003.

The ZX-7RR differs from the road model somewhat, having an adjustable head-stock angle, swing arm and larger capacity flat-side carburetors. It also has a close ratio gear-box fitted as standard and different front calipers.

Racing Legacy

Kawasaki ZX-7R P2

"It seems a little hard to believe in this modern age of super-light, ultra-powerful motorcycles, but the comparatively heavier and somewhat tankish 7RR was the unquestioned king of the AMA for the better part of the '90s. The bike brought Kawasaki into an era of awe-inspiring dominance at the hands of riders such as Scott Russell and Doug Chandler, whose combined efforts resulted in an amazing four AMA championships over a period of seven years. Russell also took the 7RR to the World Superbike Series, where he silenced all the critics with his historic 1993 WSB championship. The 7RR, for the greater part of the decade, was the quintessential high-performance motorcycle. Its impact on racing and even modern culture was so great that, even to this day, most sportbikes -- Kawasaki or not -- are referred to as 'Ninjas' by the general public." - Excerpt from the Article 'Appreciating Older Sportbikes' by Tim Kreitz
