Description

The GPX750 of the late 1980’s was no slouch in terms of power, and it even won Cycle World’s award for best 750cc streetbike in 1987 and 1988. Still, Kawasaki saw potential with a new class of Ninja using the 16-valve liquid cooled inline four from the GPX and in 1989 launched what would become one of their most iconic models. The ZX-7 was a completely new bike with a perimeter style aluminum frame, adjustable suspension, 17″ wheels front and back and a tweaked 750cc engine putting out a solid 105 horsepower.

Unlike the rare homologation specials released by other Japanese manufactures, the ZX-7 was an affordable 750cc bike that was available to everyone – racers and street riders alike. The ZX-7 was a really good road bike right out of the crate, but with some special parts and a bit of work it could be made into a very competent race machine, and for many years the bike saw incredible success on the race track. 1990 saw significant revisions to the engine and bigger carbs bringing more power, and a new swingarm changed the wheel base. 1991 ushered in a freshly restyled J model ZX-7 with more engine improvements, an inverted 43mm front fork, and a lighter frame.

Very few changes were made for the 1994 (ZX750-L2) model, but that’s OK because the upgrades bumped up power from 100 to 119 at the crank (a June 1995 test by Performance Bike Magazine showed 108.5 horsepower at the rear wheel). The engine was stuffed into an aluminum perimeter frame and the whole package weighed 452 pounds dry.

Manufactured in December of 1993, this example is VIN: JKAZXDL10RA024461. It came to Iconic as an import from the UK, though per the VIN sticker it was originally sold in the Canadian market.

The odometer shows 23,746 miles.

In preparation for the listing, the seller had us replace the battery, clean and sync the carbs, change the oil and oil filter, install new spark plugs, and flush the brake fluid as well as the coolant. We also repaired the rear light and gave the bike a detailing.
