Ask and ye shall receive – 1989 Kawasaki ZX7

1989 Kawasaki ZX-7 on eBay

A few posts back, one of our readers asked where the ZX7s were hiding… so here you go!  Most of you will know the history here.  Suzuki knocked the rest of the field on it’s heels with the introduction of their revolutionary GSX-R 750 and it took the others a few years to respond.  Kawasaki answered with the ZX-7 and the fight was on, on both the racetrack and the sales floor.  The 1989 ZX-7 featured a full perimeter aluminum frame, sleek new bodywork, those iconic “tank hoses” and a host of improvements over the outgoing “Ninja-750.”  The ZX-7’s front end would become legendary for it’s stability, making the ZX-7s one of the best handling motorcycles of their era.  It was still behind the GSXR-750 in most categories, but performed admirably on the track.  Just a few years later Scott Russell would score become the first Kawasaki rider to snag a World Superbike Championship in 1993 aboard his Muzzy ZX-7.

  • Weird … another flash from the past… myfriend had this bike and I had the CBR600 below.

  • “the guy I got it from did the motor…”

    That should inspire confidence in all you potential bidders.

  • I usually stay away from bikes with polished frames but old ZX7, green, PM wheels, flat slides…I’m in! Only problem is I just bought that other 2001 ZX7, 1989 FZR1000 and a Ducati in the last 4 weeks. Screw it, trading up and bidding away, this brings back so many fond memories! My girlfriend is going to think I’m nuts…oh well! Another cool find!

  • Lots of nice extras on that one. Would be nice to see a picture of the open valve cover to confirm Muzzy top end parts. Front upper looks to have a post 1989 decal kit on it at front center. Regardless you are looking at all the trick updates you wish you could do already complete.

  • Flatslides are such a pain to tune. My buddy had this bike but put ZX11 or ZX10 carbs (CV’s) on it…think they were 41’s? Added big cams too and boy was it a fun bike. A little scary at high speeds as it wasn’t as planted as the later version but good times. 🙂

    • Adam I want to see this collection after you have assembled it! Congrats man, its my dream to do what you are doing. Some day…

  • Daddy want… Even though I’m partial to the asymmetric look of the ’93-’95. I’ve had at least 4 ’93-’95’s, including one that had almost every Muzzy part on it. I wept when my buddy showed me the pics of it all balled up in my hospital bed. Not a single part was salvageable. Cager make a left in front of me.

  • Just rebuilding after my last divorce but starting strong. I really want to step up to an rc45, raptor and an ow01 but figure I’ll start off small and trade up. I’ve been emailing the seller, he’s fair on the asking price of this one but really having a hard time w the polished frame, no chrome, no polish for me. To each his own though 🙂

  • This one’s gonna be pricey. Already over $3500 and still has 5 days left.

  • Really good guy, I’ve been talking to him. I took it up another notch just now but agree, could run for a bit. Honestly, I’d love to have it but may get a bit too rich for me before long. Time will tell 🙂

  • I’m on the fence. I want to bid, but really want to wait for a green ’93-’95 since I can’t afford a collection.

  • Aaron. I have a beautiful 91 I’ll sell if I buy this one. I’ll put it on this site for sale if I buy the 89

    • Email me pics? i8acobra @ hotmail.com

  • The upper is a 90…the swing arm is a 90 …cant really see the swingarm pivot but its different from 89-90…still a sweet zx….my 89 doesnt look near as good but i still love her.

  • That is a 1990 pivot. The “triangle” only appears on the right side.
