When it comes to the Kawasaki ZX7, most of the time on RSBFS, you’ll see the hyper desirable ZX-7R, the homologated race special that came with track inspired touches such as flat side carbs and an aluminum gas tank. Those bikes were limited edition and special for sure. This ZX7 is simply the factory Kawasaki ZX-7 offering at the time. But don’t let that turn you off. While we all love homologated race bikes, this gives you a killer looking ride, with better street manners, and a better price. Good stuff to consider.

And the pics for your pleasure-
The seller says the bike is all stock except for the Muzzy exhaust (not uncommon on the ZX7 for sure), windscreen and turn signals. The bikes has some scratches but they seem pretty minor for the age of the bike. Mileage is getting up there but the seller describes recent carb maintenance and that the bike runs strong. Good stuff.
I agree that these will only get harder and harder to find. They don’t make them anymore, after all. The seller is asking about the top of the range right now for this bike. You’ll have to think about just how much you want it. And maybe you’ll be able to work a deal.
Regardless, this bike is iconic in the Kawi world. If you can give it the home it deserves, make the jump!
