Retro-inspired modern classics seem to be all the rage right now, but a few companies were well-ahead of the game. We just sold one notable example – the Ducati SportClassic, so let’s try another one with today’s feature, a Kawasaki ZRX1200R. Cycle World called the ZRX “a replica of a replica“, as it was designed to make you think of the iconic 1982 Eddie Lawson Replica.
The 1,164cc DOHC liquid-cooled engine produced 123 horsepower, good for a top speed of over 120 mph. It’s fun but also comfortable if you’re the kind of person that wants to ride for hours at a time.
This example (VIN: JKAZR9A101A008176, Engine #: ZRT20AE008307) shows 12,036 miles on the odometer.
It came out of the Bob Weaver collection, though we have no history beyond that. Still, we had Olly go through it to make sure that it’s a runner, as shown in the video up top.
Normally the ZRX has the Kawasaki logo on the tank in metal letters. The letters were pulled off but are included in the sale).
This ZRX is ready for someone who wants a rider in a rare color scheme!
