No Reserve – 1988 Kawasaki Ninja 600R Project


Seller accepted post-auction offer.

Auction Expired because there were no bids


Click here for an CycleVIN Motorcycle History Report on this 1988 Kawasaki Ninja 600R. Additional photos are available here for your perusal.

1988 brought big changes to the Ninja 600R – it got a new double cradle frame and ESCS (Electronic Suspension Control System) anti-dive to complement the 592cc inline four-cylinder engine.

Manufactured in April 1987, this example is VIN: JKAZX4C17JA000162.

The odometer shows 6,655 miles.

The seller acquired this solely to use the tank for another Ninja 600R that he was having us restore. He does not have a need for the rest of the bike, and has swapped out the bad tank from the other bike if the next owner wants to try and fix it.

Inside of the tank:

This Ninja appears to be stock.
