Description

Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1996 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-7RR N1. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

For ’90s Kawasaki fans, the N1 (1996) model of the ZX-7RR is just about as good as it gets. It was the last of several homologation specials based on the ZX-7, and Kawi only made 500 examples.

The base ZX-7 was a lovely bike to ride, but the N1 homologation was truly special thanks to a laundry list of upgrades: adjustable steering head angle (23.5-26.0 degrees), adjustable swingarm pivot, 41mm Keihin flatslide carbs, Nissin brakes (6-piston calipers up front), quick-ratio gearbox, upgraded fully-adjustable suspension front and rear, and a solo seat. Compared to previous homologation Ninja ZX-7s, the N1 had a steel (not aluminum) tank.

Fun story about the 1996 models: they were the first year to get purple wheels. The homologation Ninjas were so popular as privateer racers that Rob Muzzy was finding it too difficult to identify his bikes in a sea of green. His solution? Paint the wheels purple. Apparently Kawasaki liked it enough that they went with purple wheels for the 1996 bikes as well.

This example is VIN: JKAZXDN12TA000053.

The odometer shows 8,069 miles.

Modifications:
Aftermarket levers.

Zero Gravity windscreen.

Battery tender lead.
