When it was introduced in 1990, the Kawasaki ZX-11 was the fastest production motorcycle in the world. Part of that came from the fact that it was the first production motorcycle with a ram-air intake, which helped the 1,052cc inline-four engine produce a claimed 145 horsepower and 80 ft-lbs of torque.

In a period review, Cycle World said, “Now two years old, the Kawasaki ZX-11 Ninja is still the baddest, meanest, flat-nastiest motorcycle available. Forget about the other big-bore sportbikes: They’re all slow.”

Despite its immense performance, the Ninja ZX-11 was noted for being easy to ride and easy to maintain, which enabled it to have a lengthy production run that lasted until 2001.

Manufactured in October of 1995, this example is VIN: JKAZXBD12TB507261.

The seller has owned the bike since January 2022, during which time he has covered 1.7 miles. The odometer shows 30,259 miles.

The seller states that he performed an engine-on-frame restoration in a climate-controlled room. Along with a valve adjustment, he rebuilt the clutch and brake master cylinders, rebuilt the clutch slave cylinder, and changed the oil. Additionally, he notes that he has installed the following new parts:
– Barnett clutch pack with friction and steel plates
– K&N oil filter
– K&N high-flow air filter
– OEM Kawasaki fuel filter
– Front and rear wheel bearings
– OEM fork seals and oil
– OEM steering stem bearings
– EBC front and rear sintered brake pads
