The Dark Knight: 1992 Kawasaki Ninja ZX11

No computers no launch control no ABS, just 1052cc’s of grunt fed by 4 carbs all wrapped up in bodywork that would make the dark knight drool. And with less than 9,000 miles since new, this 1992 Ninja ZX11 is a treat to behold.  I know the ZX11 might not seem like a rare sportbike but its important to remember the big Ninja was the fastest production sportbike from 1992 to 1997 in large part thanks to its ram air system.  This means it meets the RSBFS technology and historical significance criteria and when you add in the  mileage/condition of this particular unit it seemed worthy of a post.

1992 Kawasaki ZX11 with 8775 miles on ebay

We have seen previous posts here on RSBFS regarding the ZX11 which is also known as the ZZR1100 outside of the USA.  An evolution of the ZX10 (which is currently shooting up the price chart in a big way for collectors) the ZX11/ZZR1100 took the preceding model and no pun intended, turned it up to 11.  Launched in 1992 the big Ninja introduced ram air systems to the big bike segment while also offering wind tunnel based bodywork that made it far too easy to just be cruising along in comfort and suddenly realize you are well over the speed limit.  The ZX11 held the crown of fastest production motorcycle until the introduction of the Honda Blackbird  in 1997 and is considered by many to be the progenitor of the hyperspeed-touring market segment.

Another plus for the ZX11/ZZR110 is that even though it is now over 25 years old it still looks great.  I still like the fairing “wing” integrated turn signals more than the current trend of back side of the mirror embedded units and there is no eye-watering 1990’s graphics package to overcome (cough-Vance-and-Hines-Yamaha-cough).  While the ZX11 was offered in several monochromatic schemes include my personal favorite of Candleberry wine red, the sales leader for the big Z was always “Ebony Pearl” or as the sales people often referred to it, Batman black.

This particular ZX11 is in excellent condition having covered only 8,775 miles since new.  Even better is the fact that the current owner seems to have kept up the the bike, although no mention is made of tire age/rubber.

Here is a summary of the info the seller has provided

  • 3rd owner of this bike and have put <800 miles on it since I purchased it 3 years ago.
  • Has a full D&D header system, K&N, Jet kit & ignition advancer (use premium fuel).
  • Recently changed all the engine & brake fluids and it has new EBC brake pads.  Also changed the fuel filters and fuel bowl transfer tube O rings, as well as the temperature sending unit in the radiator as the temp gauge didn’t work when I took delivery. 
  • No cracks, rashes, abrasions, chips, etc. There is a small area on one of the fork lowers where the prior owner had to have a registration tag and it has pulled some of the paint off the lower left fork tube, but everything else defies this classic’s age.
  • Will come with a number of spare new parts and gaskets to keep this beast humming well into the future.

Note:  I did communicate the seller and he indicates the OEM windscreen and exhausts are not available.

So is this big black beastie worth the Buy It Now price of $4,300 USD?   Well I have to admit I have a weakness for the big Z even though it is a BIG bike and a bit too tall for me. Also the pictures on this one are good but not great (there is no clear pic of the license plate area) and I would have much preferred to see it out in sunshine /daylight.  Lastly I am not sure what the holes are that appear in the frame under the gas tank on the riders right size, I think the cover shroud from the fairing might have been removed but this would need to be confirmed.

Overall I really think the question is what is your intent for acquiring this bike.  The listing seems targeted towards day-to-day riders rather than collectors or perhaps a nostalgia-rider who never got to experience the big Zed.  For any collector considering this particular ZX11 the main question would be whether the recent dramatic price jumps in the predecessor ZX10 model means they think the ZX11 will see similar appreciation in the near future.  All I can say is that if I bought this bike I would be putting in the earbuds and go for a late night or early morning blast listening to this.

Baader-Meinhof? Another 1999 Kawasaki ZX11 in Candelberry Red

zzr cropped 1

One thing regular RSBFS readers may have noticed is how listings seem to go in waves;  we won’t have a bike appear on RSBFS for a while and then suddenly multiple ones will pop up for sale.  Examples of this include not seeing any Kenny Roberts RD350’s or GSX-750R slingshots for a while, then we got a bunch of each. Perhaps the best example of this phenomenon was a few years ago we had 3 different KTM RC8R Red Bull editions pop up for sale at the same time (only 25 of these were built in total so having 3 for sale of the same time really blows out the statistical models).

Perhaps this is all just coincidence ala “Baader-Meinhof-Phenomenon” or has to due with seasonality, I don’t know.   What I do know is that just last month we were finally able to post a US-located ZX11-D in the lovely Candleberry red.  It took almost a year for a clean example of a 1993 ZX11 in candelberry red to pop up on ebay USA but now we have another one in equally excellent condition.

1999 Kawasaki ZX11-D in candleberry red on ebay

The big Kawasaki was one of the first hyper-touring machines and personally still reminds me of the scene in Spaceballs where they go to Ludicrous Speed (although apparently Tesla has now appropriated that concept).  When it was launched in 1990 the big Kawasaki was able to hit top speeds of over 170 mph and became top dog in the hyper-touring market segment which it ruled until the introduction of the Honda Blackbird.

The ZX11’s phenomenal speed was due to the introduction of ram-air induction, a first for a big bike.  But as was typical of 1000cc bikes of the early 1990’s before the Fireblade, the ZX11/ZZR was designed to be an all around machine, with wide comfortable seating, luggage hooks, good wind/weather protection, a full dash, etc.  It even came with a bit of old school tech, am integrated center stand.

NOTE:  The ZX11 is a large bike that weighs a full 604lb/274 kilos when completely filled with gas, so the center stand is quite valuable.

This particular ZX11 is listed as have 25,xxx miles and looks to be incredibly clean; the only bit of customization appears to be the removal of the NINJA decals from the two main fairing lowers.  There are no marks on the  exhaust canisters/mufflers so I don’t think the bike has been down.

Here is what the seller has to say

  • NEW FUEL FILTER AND SPARK PLUGS
  • STOCK BUT FOR WINDSCREEN, ALSO HAVE STOCK SCREEN
  • NO MARKS ON THE FRAME ,NO SCRATCHES ON THE TANK SHEILD,
  • HAS BEEN LIGHTLY USED PAST FEW YEARS, BEEN ADULT OWNED BY A VERY PROFESSIONAL RIDER.
  • HIGH TECH BATTERY
  • CLEAN CARBS
  • CLEAN UNRUSTED GAS TANK
  • NINJA STICKERS REMOVED

Is this lovely big Ninja worth the reserve asking price listed of $3,400? That price is above KBB retail values for a 1993 Kawasaki ZX11-D but more importantly,  the one we posted last month had less miles and sold for a flat $3k.

I think a reasonable price for this one to  move on to a new owner will be somewhere around $2,900 USD.  I do think this is another great opportunity for someone to pick up a more refined big, fast sport touring machine that can blow the doors off a lot of more modern equipment.

Candleberry King: 1999 Kawasaki ZX11 with 7331 miles

We have posted about the ZX11/ZZR several times previously, about how Kawasaki’s monster machine still gives us flashbacks to the scene in Spaceballs where they go to Ludicrous Speed.   The big Ninja was and still is a true “hyper-tourer”, a 604lb monster machine with a cruise missile engine.

When it was launched in 1990 the big Kawasaski (known as the ZZR outside the USA) was able to hit top speeds of over 170 and was immediately the king of the hyper-touring market segment.  It ruled the segment for 6 years until being displaced by the Honda Blackbird and then finally, the Suzuki Hayabusa.

zx11 1

1999 Kawasaki ZX11, Candelberry red, only 7300 miles!

A large reason for the ZX11’s phenomical speed was due to the use of a new concept (to most riders); a ram air induction system.  Although ram air had already been widely used in automobiles, the ZX11/ZZR was the first production motorcycle fitted with such a system.  Unlike other “fresh-air” systems of the time, the ram air system was sealed and produced a constant flow of pressurized, cool air to the carbs.

A technical description of the function and result of the ram air function can be found here.

zx11 3

But the Big Kawasaki wasn’t just about top speed.  It was very civilized, with comfortable seating and convenience features such as luggage hooks, a full dash including a clock, outstanding fairing/wind protection, and even a centerstand!   Of course it kind of needed a centerstand, given that the ZX11/ZZR weighed a full 604lb/274 kilos when fueled.

I tend to think of the big Zed as an Aston Martin Vantage coupe of the same period; big, fast, civilized but still capable of blowing the door mirrors off most other things on the road.   And like the Aston Martin, I think the ZX11/ZZR’s design, with its integrated turn signal indicators and monocromatic color scheme bodywork has aged particularly well.

zx11 4

This particular ZX11 has a truly astonishing low mileage of only 7331 miles….yes you read that right, only 7331 miles.   It looks to be complete stock except for an aftermarket windscreen and I see no sign of it being down at any time.   The only issue I am seeing is some some small wear/tears on the main seat which could easily be fixed or upgraded with a corbin replacement.  And I have to admit, I think it looks fantastic in my favorite color scheme of Candleberry wine red, much better than the other stock options (black, green, and dark purple).

zx11 2

Is this ZX11 worth the opening bid $3,000 USD price?   Yes, Yes!  YES!!!!….provided you understand what it is…a tall, heavy, powerful hyper tourer.   The ZX11 will never be described as “flicable” and it wont be a collectible but finding one in this condition is pretty much unheard of.  The last one of these we posted was down in Australia went from a bit more than this one is listed at and that one had which much higher mileage.  This big red Ninja seems to be a screaming bargain even when basic maintenance of fluids and fresh tires are factored into the price.

I think this is a great opportunity for someone who is wants something tasteful that can also do high-speed touring …but I would advise that people under 5’8″ consider carefully before acquiring this big beastie.

Into Zed Darkness: 1989 ZX7 Ninja, 1992 ZX11 Ninja

blackninjacombined

Here we have two excellent examples of the Kawasaki early 90’s Ninja family, a first generation ZX7 with only! 7000 miles and a pristine 1992 ZX11.


Here is the 1st one, a Dark 1989 ZX7.

blackninja1

1989 Ninja 750 for sale on ebay

Back in 1989 Kawasaki launched their 750cc sportbike, the ZX7 H1. The ZX7 line (known as the ZXR outside of the us) started with the “H” models and it looked uncannily like the first model of the ZXR-7 racer. The 750cc Kawasaki ZX7 was probably the definitive pure sportbike configuration for Kawasaki until the ZX9 was introduced; sure there were other Ninja’s in their product range including the excellent ZX-6 and ZX-11 but the 750cc model was more powerful and less buzzy than the 600cc version while still a pure sportbike/not a partially sport touring oriented machine like the 1100cc.

For the 1st year/1989 model year, Kawasaki offered three bodywork paint schemes- a basic black, a red/silver/black combo and the color scheme that would come to be defined with the ZX7, a green/white/blue combination. While the green/white/blue combo bikes have become quite the collectors item, the other color scheme bikes didn’t sell as well here in the states and are actually rarer to find in pristine condition.

blackninja2

This particular ZX7 is an extremely pristine 1989 Ninja 750 with the black bodywork. The seller indicates a mileage level of 7000 miles (yes you read that right) and that the bike is completely stock. This seems to be one of those bikes that was bought by someone in their youth, ridden for a few seasons and then just tucked away.   I would expect a full maintenance would be needed, including new tires, all fluids and possibly a chain.

blackninja3

So whats this 1st generation ZX7 worth?   Well, the $5,000 USD asking price is well over KBB values but prices for the first generation ZX7 are definitely climbing and finding one this pristine is going to be a truly rare occurrence..  This might be a smart acquisition for someone looking to add a 1st generation ZX7 to their collection..also this bike could probably be converted to the more desirable Green/White/Blue via the purchase of an aftermarket bodykit or a repaint if the purchaser so desired.


Here is the 2nd one, a Dark 1992 Kawsasaki ZX11 with 16,405 miles

zx11 black

1992 Ninja ZX11 for sale on ebay

As previously posted here on RSBFS,  the ZX11 D model was probably THE definitive big sportbike.   Even thought it wasn’t a hardcore sportbike/track-oriented machine, the ZX11 was frequently faster than other brands race reps and could be used as a sport touring machine due to it having a center stand, civilized dual seat, 200-mile tank range and full gauge cluster (including a  clock!)   The ZX11 was the fastest production motorcycle for six years, from its introduction in 1990 through 1995.

Like the earlier posted ZX7, this particular ZX11 comes with the dark scheme of black bodywork with purple highlights and looks to be in excellent condition.  The only flaw I was able to spot was some rust on the line going to the rear brake caliper which isn’t too surprising given its location in Illinois.

zx11 black 2

Here is some of what the seller has to say.

  • A 1992 Kawasaki Ninja. 1052cc.
  • Bike is very well maintained and clean, runs great.
  • Bought it from second owner a month ago and wanted to ship it out of the country but couldn’t due to customs requirements.
  • The bike has near new tires, brake pads, and battery.
  • It comes with a charger, corbin seat, and it’s original seat, and a cable lock.
  • It only has 16K plus miles, and is a speed devil.
  • All systems are up to date, including oil change.
  • Very minor scratches, no dents or dings.
  • Garage kept.

zx11 black 3

So what’s this big black and purple beastly worth? Buy-It-Now price is a bit above KBB but the seller is asking less than the ZX7 featured earlier in this post. The price actually seems reasonable given the condition and the fact that this isn’t a first gen ZX11 (its a D model). Personally I prefer this big ZX11 over the ZX7, especially the integrated turn signals that are kind of like rocket tail fins. The big Ninja could certainly be a bike for any rider who is a bit more “mature” but still wants to have people say “WTF was that thing that just blew by us?”

Top of it’s Game: 1997 CBR900RR SC33 Fireblade

Please join me in welcoming Norman to the RSBFS team with his first post!

At one point or another, all of the Japanese manufacturers were at the top when it came to making the best bikes for the track or the street. Suzuki with the GSXR750, Yamaha with the R1, Kawasaki with the ZX11, and Honda with the CBR.

The result of all the manufacturers wanting to be on the top step of the podium or the stretched street race king was a very fast and successful development race by manufacturers all over the world and especially in Japan – the motorcycle mecca of the world. So many models, significant refreshes, and units were produced throughout the years that you can still easily get your hands on these bikes today. You don’t have to blow a 5 digit-wide hole in your savings account to do it either. This here 900RR Fireblade is an example of Honda’s turn at the top.

1997 CBR900RR for sale on Bring A Trailer

from the listing:

The bike was modified under prior ownership with a trimmed rear fender, a tinted windscreen, and a Yoshimura slip-on muffler, and it was acquired by the seller in March 2022, reportedly from its second owner. Service under current ownership is said to have included cleaning and synchronizing the carburetors, replacing the battery, changing the oil, and installing a battery charger lead. This SC33 CBR900RR shows 12k miles and is offered at no reserve with an owner’s manual, a tool kit, two keys, and a clean New Jersey title in the seller’s name

The auction is currently no-reserve on BAT at $3,100.

Fortunately, the seller does a pretty good job at explaining the history and specs. Doesn’t leave a lot to the imagination. There are instances in life when the imagination is great but it can be expensive when it comes to buying used bikes!

At first glance, the slip-on seems like a Yoshimura RS1. Not the worst thing you could do to this bike. It’ll probably sound pretty good but something I would confirm over video.

Not sure where it’ll go but this is a pretty nice example aside from a couple quirks. It’s not often these pop up on marketplace anymore and if they do they’re usually in rough shape or clapped out. I saw a clean yellow one go for $3,400 in 3/2020 and kicked myself for missing that.

The power and weight numbers are still relevant today plus these bikes are reliable so you can enjoy them out on the roads or just keep it tucked away. Parts availability is still good for these and eBay has lots of spares. How about some Keihin FCR39’s for a bit more power?!

This generation of Honda’s Fireblade isn’t the prettiest but it’s hard to say it looks flat out ugly and the front has aged better than people might have guessed. The rest of the body and cockpit look great. Simple. Classic. Analog. Pretty much every automotive experience Honda offered in the 1990s has aged well. Also, Fireblade is just too good of a name.

1996 Kawasaki ZX-11 For Sale on eBay!

I know Kawasaki made too many of these to be considered “Rare” and I also know it doesn’t have a fancy smancy “1 of 250” number plate affixed to the triple clamp. But, but, but . . . this one only has a scant 3,475 miles on the clock, is an antique 25 years old and is extremely clean so, in my view, this one sort of kinda fits the bill.

From the seller

Very nice ZX11, unrestored, original paint in near perfect condition with low miles and everything works as it should. A couple small blemishes, one chip on the fender from a strap that rubbed on it and a light scratch on tank


The ZX-11 was the King of Speed for several years with a top speed of 176 mph. It would also turn the 1/4 mile in just under 10.5 seconds, making it the drag bike of choice long before The Busa was around. Actually, the Honda Black Bird eclipsed the Big Ninja in the late 90’s, but that was short lived. #Busa

 

More from the seller
This bike has been stored its whole life in a climate controlled building. Paint shines like new, no dents, no cracks in plastic. Its ready to ride.

If I were to pick this one up, I’d pass on the top end capabilities and focus on some all day country road sport touring with the misses. The large, comfy seat and upright riding position would lend itself perfectly to my old man arthritic shoulders and rickety ass back.

But, first things first- if you’re interested in this Big Beautiful Ninja you’ll need to place an order for some new shoes because these might be a lil’ slippery.

Can I get a clean up in isle #11 please?

Check out this Big Ninja here!

Cheers!

Express Ticket: 1993 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-11D for Sale

I’m sure you all must be exhausted by the never ending stream of exotic Italian confections that have assaulted your senses this week. Rich, high-calorie recipes that include a bit too much of all the things that make motorcycles great. As a palate cleanser, I’d like to offer this very clean, very handsome, very appropriately painted, and very fast Kawasaki ZX-11.

Kawasaki’s entry into the 1990’s Horsepower Wars was introduced in 1990 and produced until 2001, when it was superseded by the reskinned and stroked ZZ-R1200. Power naturally came from a big inline four that displaced 1052cc and was connected to a six-speed gearbox. Aided by one of the very first functional production ram-air systems, the big four produced 150 crankshaft horses, enough to push the bike to a top speed of over 175mph.

Handling was neutral and very stable, exactly what you’d want from a bike this powerful. But although it was fast, the ZX-11 was no track bike: it was designed as a roadbike, with very reasonable ergonomics that made it far more of a gran tourismo, as the sleek, mature looks and lack of the period’s famously garish graphics suggest. The near 600lb wet weight helped provide stability at speed and pummeled road imperfections into submission.

From the original eBay listing: 1993 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-11D for Sale

100% OEM Condition… 1993 Kawasaki Ninja ZX11 D-1 in a very desirable Candleberry Wine Red with only 27,800 miles that comes out to 989 miles a year. This bike could easily qualify as a survivor (Pride in Ownership shows). Overall paint is in great condition. Exhaust and ECU are stock. Exhaust cans are very clean. Starts and runs good! Everything works as it should. No leaks, no smoke, no overheating. Plenty of tread on the tires. Decals and emblems are all original. Adult owned and cared for its entire life.

Original tool kit is under the seat. This is a very clean example and as the time progresses these are harder to come by in such great shape. As a matter of fact I’ve only ever come across a couple that were even close to this condition in years past. 

You will be very hard pressed to find one let alone in this condition. Free and clear title in hand. Bike has never been laid down or crashed. I purchased the bike from the original owner who was well into his late 70s. Hate to see it go. Price is firm. No rust whatsoever and garage kept.

I’ll include bar risers and a flat bar should the new owner decide to take touring comfort to another level. I will also include JTR488-45 rear sprocket. Zero Gravity tinted screen mounted, stock clear screen and a black out screens will be included.

Condition of this Candleberry Wine Red example appears excellent, although miles aren’t especially low. But it’s not surprising that the previous two owners racked up some miles, considering the ZX-11’sraison d’etre: ballistic mile-munching performance. I genuinely think these are very cool and, when prices were at their nadir, entertained fantasies of finding a clean example and fitting a set of soft luggage so I could blast up and down the West Coast. I’ve seen lower-mileage examples for less than this one’s $4,200 asking price in years past, but I have a feeling this will look like a very good deal in just a couple years’ time… Snap bargains up while you can still find them.

Featured Listing: 1998 Triumph Daytona Ex Formula Thunder Race Bike for Sale

I love seeing race and trackday bikes built out of unlikely candidates like this well-prepared, race-winning Triumph Daytona T595. After all, the whole point of the Daytona in the first place was that it wasn’t pretending to be just a numberplate away from placing at Brands Hatch. Instead, it was intended as a fast roadbike, with a focus on character, build-quality, and humane ergonomics. A gentleman’s sportbike. In this case, a bike for a very fast gentleman…

The original Daytona introduced in the early 1990s was available in three or four-cylinder flavors and it was a big, burly GT to rival bikes like the Kawasaki ZX11. The second generation seen here was codenamed the T595, although it was fairly quickly renamed the 955i to avoid confusion regarding its displacement. That’s the kind of thing that never bothered Bimota, and I wonder how many people ask SB6 owners if their bike is a 600… In any event, the bike displaced 955cc and was much lighter and more agile than the bike that preceded it.

That being said, the T595 really wasn’t intended for competition: the suspension was too soft, the motor biased towards a flexible midrange, as opposed to top-end power, and it was still just a tad too heavy. But this is a Triumph we’re talking about, and sportbikes are in their DNA. Fit some stiffer suspension, do a bit of headwork, swap in some custom-ground cams, and change out the stock wheels and bodywork for some lightweight parts. Voila: racebike! It’s obviously not quite that easy, but someone clearly put in the effort here: the description goes into great detail regarding the work and parts that went into building this successful racing machine.

From the Seller: 1998 Triumph Daytona Ex Formula Thunder Race Bike for Sale

This is an off road only track bike, no street parts available. This bike dominated at the local track in the Formula Thunder class in early 2000’s. Once retired from active duty it was sold to its current owner in 2003. At that time it was taken to a well known local engine builder go through entire motor and chassis and make get it ready for its last race, a 4 hour endurance race. The motor was torn down and a full fresh build took place. Invoice provided for build. It was then broken in on the Dyno (see chart) and off to the races it went. Retired after the event, until it was brought in to us to find a new home. It had sat for a few years so we carefully went over it, good compression @185-200, changed oil, filter, flushed coolant, fresh fuel and bike came right to life!

Here is a quick list of the obvious and a note from professional Triumph engine builder Scott Zollars.

  • 885cc
  • Dymag magnesium wheels
  • Rare Yoshimura full exhaust
  • Attack Performance Triple clamps and rear suspension linkage
  • Pro Circuit Suspension re-valved front and rear suspension
  • Penske rear shock
  • Brembo Master cylinder and calipers
  • 320 mm rotors with custom caliper brackets for Brembo’s

“The cylinder head is a ported 885 from a speed triple. The cylinder liners are the aluminum with nickasil coating items from the earlier generation Super 3. In particular they are all number 2 cylinder liners as they had a tighter tolerance from the factory. The pistons were from the earlier Super 3 also as they were 12-1 hi compression pistons. The cylinder head was decked when it was ported. A final compression ratio of 13.0 sounds familiar. The cams are a custom grind from Web Cam. The valve springs are a custom set from Kibblewhite. The airbox is a crudely made custom item. However it proved to be very effective. The transmission gears were back cut. The shafts that the shift forks ride on were shortened to allow them to float in the case similar in fashion as to what was standard on R6’s etc. All rod and main bearings were the White bearings. Carillo connecting Rods. This is how I remember the bike being set up. Things may have changed since 2004 though” – Scott

From one of the local forums:

“05-15-2005, 12:47 AM – Scott Zollars was the man behind I-90 Motorsports race 885 Daytona. That bike dominated the Formula Thunder class at Pacific Raceway for four years.
Also he was involved with Jack Lilleys highly successful 595 Daytona. I think it was the first British bike to win a National in eighteen years? I know first hand that Scott is an expert with fuel injection, electronics, motors and fabrication”

The seller also includes a short walkaround video of the bike running and the throttle being blipped. There are obviously more sensible track-day mounts, bikes that are simpler to get parts for and faster. But if I was in the market for a $7,000 track bike, I’d be very tempted by this Triumph. It’s obviously a highly-developed machine for that kind of money, and you couldn’t replicate it for anything like what the seller is asking: just the rare parts fitted would probably be worth the asking price, not to mention the hours spent building and tuning it. And if you’re looking to go racing in a vintage class, you could certainly do worse than starting with a competitive machine like this one!
