Retro-inspired modern classics seem to be all the rage right now, but a few companies were well-ahead of the game. One of the most notable efforts was the Kawasaki ZRX1200R – Cycle World called it “a replica of a replica“, as it was designed to make you think of the iconic 1982 Eddie Lawson Replica.

It was available in silver, red, blue, and of course: Kawi Green.

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 is VIN: JKAZR9A195A039688. The seller believes he is the third owner, he purchased the motorcycle three years ago from a private party.

The odometer shows 25,801 miles. During his ownership, the seller has put approximately 8,000 miles on this example.

The seller states they have performed the following work within the last 500 miles:
Valve adjustment using OE Kawasaki shims and valve cover gasket.
All fluids have been changed, air and oil filter replaced with OE Kawasaki.
New NGK spark plugs and spark plug hole gaskets OE Kawasaki.
New pulsar cover gasket OE Kawasaki.
New chain and sprocket from RK (wanted to buy OE, but was backordered indefinitely at the time).

K&N air filter (not currently installed, included in sale.)

ProGrip tank pad.

Not pictured: KWICK ignition advancer, and KWICK tensioner tamer (both currently installed).

Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Pirelli Angel GT tires with date codes of 4621 and 2921.

The sale includes three keys.

Zero Gravity windshield, K&N air filter, and OEM ignition timing wheel and tensioner.
