Additional photos of this Kawasaki ZXR400 are available here for your perusal.

Introduced in 1989, the ZXR400 was one of the first and most popular of the 400 cubic centimeter sport bikes that swept across Japan (and later Europe) in the 1990s. The H model was produced first, and it was superseded by the L series in 1991. The L series had increased horsepower but less torque, and updated slimmer rear styling. The ZXR featured an impressive 14,500 rpm redline, which is a hint that the 398cc inline four needed to be worked hard to make speedy progress.

This 1995 ZXR400 in 90`s hulk green, blue and white made ~64 hp @ 13,000 rpm, with almost 27 lb-ft torque. The ZXR400 weighed in at 351 lbs dry with a top speed approaching 140 mph. It was a surprisingly capable all-around mount: reasonably comfortable for commuting or getting to the twisty bits, at which point you could enjoy great handling due to the small size and weight paired with quality components: upside down fork, Uni-trak rear suspension, aluminum chassis, and slipper clutch. Many reviewers felt that it delivered more performance than anything else in its category.

This ZXR is in great riding condition and runs well. It was serviced in 2017 with a new battery, new fluids, and new filters. The bodywork is all original.

The owner is a big Kawasaki collector who is clearing out his bike collection, which includes the “R” model from every year of the ZX-7, a ZRX1200R, as well as the Candy Wine Red ZX-7 and the wildly rare Raptor that are currently on our classifieds.

He bought this bike from Gary at White Knuckle Motorsports with the intention of putting her back to stock and keeping a collection of bikes he could rotate out and ride but a recent life changing accident has changed his priorities. The bike was at a recent shop for about a year but they never got to it except to put on tires so we took it in and went through it extensively. Paint flaws bothered the owner so he had it had repainted at a cost of $3,500. One of the issues was a missing front right turn signal – we ordered one but our supplier sent us the wrong one. It is pictured without photos but we will have the part before this bike ships or is picked up by the next owner.

It is offered on a clean Utah title. The bike is currently at our headquarters in Marina del Rey, California. Thanks to the repaint, cosmetic flaws are limited to scratches on the left side engine cover and grind marks on the side of the exhaust. Our plan was to resleeve it or find a new can but a part wasn’t available and the owner would rather sell it then finish the last couple of details since his accident.

This ZXR shows 25,256 kilometers (15,785 miles) on the odometer.

Americans never really got to experience the joy of Japan’s 400cc sportbike market – here’s your chance to fix that! As MCN put it, “Small, light, stumpy, extremely revvy and a fabulous handler, the little ZXR is refined essence of four-cylinder sportster.”
