( In your best Rod Serling voice ) “Imagine if you will, riding a quintessential 90’s supersport around town, and attracting very little attention…” This ZX-7 with rather low miles is dressed up in candy apple red, and is in lovely survivor condition.
1993 Kawasaki ZX-7 for sale Asking $4,950
The ZX-7 came ashore in 1989, with the usually green bikes’ eyes on the AMA Superbike series. Some nice improvements were made in 1991, with a seriously oversquare engine layout ( 71mm bore x 47.3 mm stroke ), 38mm carbs, and upside-down forks. The single air scoop was added in 1993, sending ram air to the newly-designed top end. Steering was always a ZX-7 strong point, and incremental improvement was made to the rear suspension over the years. The black painted alloy chassis complements the alternate color scheme perfectly.
RSBFS reader Rocco has tended his ZX-7 carefully, the brandywine red metallic still sparkling. The Muzzy exhaust might be the only update, and tires look to have a lot of miles left. Rocco’s notes on the ZX-7:
1993 ZX-7 (ZX750L) with 8,984 original miles.
Original plastics – All VIN tags in place.
Engine/Frame/etc. all very clean.
Runs and Rides great.
Light damage on right side lower gas tank from falling off lift while stationary
and small crack in upper cowl fairing.
Muzzy full system with correct jetting.
CLEAN OHIO TITLE IN HAND.
So what’s to like here? The low miles, the reasonable price, compared to a more exotic ZX-7RR, the period Muzzy pipe, and classic superbike looks. What’s not to like? The fact that it’s just a standard ZX-7 and the minor damage mentioned.
I doubt these will ever be worth crazy money, but it’s certainly a bike that should go up in value and you’ll be able to ride it in the meantime without worrying too much about either damaging an ultra-rare exotic or devaluing it by adding too many miles.
Extremely well preserved. Runs like it looks, INCREDIBLE. Items included in sale: original owner’s manual, tool kit, matching gloves and helmet, clear title. Rare was the factory brandywine red color but rarer here is a true survivor time capsule ready to take you back – don’t miss it.
Rocco asks $4,950 for his ZX-7
Kawasaki gave Team Muzzy a great platform to start, and they delivered four AMA titles with Doug Chandler and Scott Russell aboard. Almost like a UCF fighter out for dinner in a suit, the brandywine ZX-7 blends in, giving off a more sport touring vibe. What a surprise when the rider calls up the 118hp exiting the next corner ! Rocco’s ZX-7 carves out an interesting corner in the sport bike world – very sporty credentials, practically vintage at this point, hidden under the alternate livery and immaculate presentation.
