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 approximately 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 (VIN: JKAZXDN14TA000040) comes to us from a friend of Iconic in Arizona, though the bike is currently in our storage unit near our headquarters in Marina del Rey, California – please contact us to make an appointment if you’d like to inspect it up close.

It was most recently purchased from Gary at White Knuckle Motorsports – it comes with a Utah title that was issued on 7/14/2015 as well as a Utah bill of sale to the current owner. Also included in the historical records is a Washington state Certificate of Ownership with a 12/11/2000 application date. It has just 477 miles on the odometer and the “BREAK-IN CAUTION” sticker is still on the tachometer.

There are just a few cosmetic flaws – a ding in the exhaust hanger, a scratch in the tail, and small scratches in the frame near the two front tank mounting holes. Photos of all known issues are included in the album up top.

Considering the low mileage, this is more of a display piece and it’s unlikely that the next owner would want to add to the odometer reading. However, if you would like to ride this machine, we would recommend a standard recommissioning that we would be glad to perform as part of our White Glove services. Comment below with any questions and we will do our best to answer them for you!
