Description

Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

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.”

This example is VIN: JKAZX750PPA059598. It came to Iconic as an import from the UK, the history is not known.

The odometer shows 17,352 miles.

Maintenance:
In preparation for the listing, the seller had us clean and sync the carbs, rebuild the rear brake system, and repair the petcock. We also replaced a broken turn signal stalk, the front wheel bearings, and the front wheel circlips. Finally, we swapped the existing aftermarket slip-on for an OEM unit and installed new Bridgestone Battlax S22 tires with date codes of 0422 and 0522.
