The Kawasaki ZX-7 H1 represents a vital period for Kawasaki. With Superbike racing really taking off, Suzuki had thrown down the gauntlet with the revolutionary GSX-R 750 and the other manufacturers were trying hard to catch up. Everybody knows the age old racing mantra of “Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday” and Kawasaki wanted a piece of Suzuki’s sales. Enter the ZX-7. Sporting a solid 105hp, soon to be legendary front end stability and maybe a slightly too harsh rear shock, Kawasaki was back in the game. The great looks didn’t hurt either!
If you’ve been nostalgic for a while and are really serious about adding a collector quality ZX-7 to your stable, this one deserves a serious look. With just one owner, low miles and all of those hard to find stock bits still intact, you begin to appreciate what you are looking at here. Over the years and throughout their lifetimes, many ZX-7s saw their owners remove things like the original signals, reflectors, chain guards and mudflaps in an effort to save a few pounds. Collectors and restorers know how hard those things are to find these days. This one is still on it’s original tires! (good for the collector, bad for the rider).
