1989 Kawasaki Ninja ZX 7 w/ only 4,973 miles! *No R required*

1989 Kawasaki ZX 7 For Sale on eBay!

Would you look at that clean and green H1 goodness! #Tasty

If you weren’t a fan of my last Homologation ZX-7R M1 post, perhaps this OG ZX-7 will tickle your green fancy pants at a clean and crisp $19,897.00 B.I.N. price 🙂

Not seeing any gooey chain lube sling-

Not seeing any significant heel marks-

Not seeing much in the way of custodian key chain marks-

Yup, it’s a clean green machine!

Back in 1989, these were pretty bad ass machines (sans the fake Hoover hoses). From the factory you could expect front and rear adjustable suspenders, massive 275mm front rotors, 105hp and 17″ wheels at both ends- sporting radial tires. I know, none of that seems impressive to modern day riders, but believe me when I tell you- All of that was cutting edge in 1989. However, the middleweight Ninja was a touch heavy at 450ish pounds.

Did I mention it has 2 round headlights and is neon green with some snazzy reflective stickers?

  • How about those pictures! That’s how you market and sell a vintage motorcycle!

  • 1st year, very nice. Doug Chandler would approve.

  • I can’t believe the asking price? Are these really worthy of that? Not an RR??

  • Nope. Not then, not now, not ever. I’d be leery about it even at $4500. You’re either gonna have to leave it parked or figure out where to buy 91+ octane non-ethanol fuel and how to adjust carbs. Then you’re still going to have an old, slow, heavy motorcycle you can’t find parts for. People have literally lost their minds. Some fool with money paid 16K+5% for a 748 Ducati on Bring a Therapist today. I gotta find a new hobby because this one has officially jumped the shark.

    • Saw that today on BaT too. Amazing result for sure…

      Hadn’t heard Bring a Therapist yet, that’s excellent 😀

  • These bikes are climbing in value. Nice H1 and H2 models are so hard to find. If you are complaining about climbing prices. rare parts, and running non ethanol gas, buy a used $4500 R6 and move along. This is one of the nicest Zx7”s I’ve seen.

  • That is one nice bike. Green is best. I say wow, I’d love to ride that for an afternoon on a hot day. those two lamps upfront just gorgeous. If I had a style, that would do it.

  • Bought one of these new in ’89 for $6200. Rode it and raced it for many years, It was never the fastest (it was too heavy and under-powered), but it handled nicely and looked great. I still love the graphic styling of the old ZX-7, one of the best of that era IMO.

  • Nice bike, stupid price. Like everything else in this era of the ‘new normal’.

    • Think it is due to the current market “issues” or that this era of motorcycle is no longer just some used machine, these are the new collectables.

  • “No longer available” Sold quickly. Wonder what it sold for. Probably pretty close to his asking price.

  • Wow, that was fast! Hopefully, one of our readers purchased it 🙂

  • I’m afraid after this hyper inflated market collapses a lot of these recent buyers are gonna be left holding the bag. Not just with bikes, but cars, houses, everything. There was even a 3 cylinder Geo Metro bringing stupid money on Bring A Trailer. A Geo Metro. Really?

    • Is a decent price paid on a Geo Metro really that different to people showing up to local car shows with a Nova 15-20 years ago?

  • That Geo brought $18,200 not including the buyer fee. Are they bidding in pesos? That would be $840…which would actually make sense. I swear there has to be something shady going on over there. Even Mecum and Barrett Jackson who allow and participate in shill bidding (read the fine print, it’s absolutely real, legal and it’s standard operating procedure) can’t get those kinds of results from drunk people bidding against themselves. What gives???

  • Everyone says overpriced but then they sell within a day or so. Yes, we are in a massive bubble but this thing is way more fun to own than a 3Rd of a Bitcoin. 90-91 non E rec gas is fairly common if you look or you can run 100LL. A clean all original bike from this era has a presence you dont get from more modern bikes. Build quality was pretty damn good and its hard not to appreciate one that was preserved. The good ones are so hard to find.

  • Looks like he was trying to sell it while waiting for it to appear on BaT: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1989-kawasaki-zx-7-h1/
