Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1998 Kawasaki ZX-11. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

When it was introduced in 1990, the Kawasaki ZX-11 was the fastest production motorcycle in the world. Part of that came from the face 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 June of 1997, this example is VIN: JKAZXBD14WB511087. The seller purchased this example from a private party nine months ago.
