Record Setting KR1-S In The UK
I think that is the smile of a man that had just broken a record. This KR1-S for sale is the current holder of the production 250cc speed record at Bonneville. Everyone makes claims to sell bikes right? Well they have the paperwork to prove it and there is a nice write up on the KR Forum about the endeavor. Long story short, this bike rolled across Bonneville with a two pass average of 136.5 mph. Very nice for a stock two built back in 1990. By the way, a KR1 has held the record since 1989. Kawasaki, why did you give up on these bikes? On a similar note, check out this work of art, the beautiful but flawed X0-9. Sure seems like Kawasaki has a history of starting projects and then pulling the plug rather quickly.
As the title states this KR1 is located in the UK. The seller states he is only interested in buyers in the UK. If you are in love but not sipping tea on a regular basis shoot the man an email. You never know, maybe you can convince him otherwise.
Kawasaki KR-1S C2 Black and Green
This KR-1S is arguably the 'Fastest' production 250 in the world being the machine that took the 250 production record at Bonneville in August 2007.
The bike is in good condition (some might describe it as very good condition for the age). Piccies are of the bike before it went green mudguard, and as it was at Bonneville. Bike is in one piece but at the moment the bodywork is stored to keep it safe.
Fairing is very clean with no cracks. After coming back from the States the bike has sat in my garage for 3 years so has no tax or MOT currently on a SORN. The vehicle was taxed and had an MOT when it went to the States.
Having decided to sell it, I don't ride on the road, I have fitted an engine with crank cases tuned to my latest 2010 specification. Barrels have been replated (as I type they haven't even been run).
UK buyers only bike is advertised elsewhere and will be removed if sold.
Buyer will need to collect
Lets take a little trip down memory lane and pretend you just scored a brochure on the hot new 1990 KR1-S. If you would like to check out the auction or try to convince the seller to tear down his trade barriers, .
