Back in 1996, Kawasaki decided to standardize naming for their popular 750 sportbike worldwide, rebadged the model in the US as the ZX-7R — the double R moniker was reserved for the more potent homologation special that Kawasaki sold in very limited numbers.

With the name change came several important updates, including a new engine with more mid-range power, a pair of ram-air intakes, as well as a set of Tokico six-pots and some fully-adjustable suspension front and rear. Despite making comparable power to Suzuki’s rival GSX-R SRAD, the ZX-7R came in 25kg (55lbs) heavier. Even still, the bike was a top seller due in large part to its street prowess and classic good looks that have stood the test of time.

VisorDown summed it up best in their retrospective review of the ZX-7R: “The Kawasaki ZX-7R still rates as one of the best-looking race-replica machines ever. And it’s been looks alone that have kept the venerable sexy seven so popular.” They go on to say that while the ZX-7R wasn’t as “radical” as their main competitor (the GSX-R750), it sold better thanks to better styling and a “race pedigree that the Suzuki couldn’t match.”

Manufactured in September of 1998, this example is VIN: JKAZXDP14XA038628. The seller is the original owner – he purchased this new in 1999 from a Kawasaki dealer in New York.

The odometer shows 8,479 miles. The seller accounts for all miles.

The seller states they have performed routine maintenance, which has included changing the oil, flushing coolant, and cleaned the carburetors. He notes that the battery is less than 1 year old.

Muzzy exhaust system.

Aftermarket turn signals.

Not pictured: K&N filter, Dyno jet stage 1 kit, and -1 tooth front sprocket.
