Americans know this bike as the ZX-7, but in international markets Kawasaki sold it as the ZXR750.

The base model got a significant update in 1991, which was internally known as the J model. It weighed roughly 10 pounds less than the previous generation and was upgraded with 43mm USD forks. But the “K” model (built between 91-92) was a homologation special built in limited numbers so Kawi could go racing in AMA Superbike.

For that extra dough you got a whole bunch of goodies, including 120 horsepower from a tweaked engine, close-ratio six speed transmission, Keihin 39mm flat slide carbs, aluminum (versus steel) tank, lighter subframe with a solo seat/fiberglass tail, and fully adjustable suspension with a remote reservoir rear shock.

The extra power came from a higher redline (+500rpm), higher compression, and larger cams, plus the bike weighed 10 pounds less. It may look rather similar to the standard J model ZX-7, but it was happier on the track than the street thanks to the above changes and a very tall first gear. In a 1992 test, Performance Bikes magazine got 110 horsepower at the rear wheel (Kawasaki claimed 120 at the crank) and hit 158.5 miles per hour – all while returning 41 average miles per gallon.

Fun fact: you can tell if the fairings are proper K model panels when you see the supplemental hole on the right side – that’s to adjust the flatslides. Regular J models had CV carbs and no adjustment hole.

This example is VIN: ZX750K000084. The seller acquired it eight months ago out of a collection. He has his own collection of 11 ZXR750RRs.

The odometer shows 1,066 kilometers (662 miles).

Modifications:
The seller states that this bike is completely stock.

He adds that there are no cosmetic blemishes or known mechanical issues. He had Kawasaki Höly in Schriesheim, Germany perform “a major service with new tires and new fluids. Everything with receipt.”

This bike is in very nice shape and state, it’s always been maintained and has the original paint. It has all the “K” components, this a rare opportunity to get a super powerful and very rare early superbike. It runs perfect..”
