Anytime I see one of thee bikes, I dream about it sitting in my living room. Not to say that I wouldn’t love to ride it or think that it shouldn’t be ridden, but I just love the way they look. The K1 ZX7R is definitely one of my top-5 drool factor bikes. It just screams 90’s sport bike.
The ZX7R was a homologated special as most of you know and was built in order to compete in world Superbike. The list of special features includes an aluminum gas tank, flatside carbs, and a close-ratio gear box. Although some say these bikes make for a finicky street machine, they still represent the golden era of homologated specials in grand fashion.
The bike up for grabs here looks to be in very good. There is however a crack in the left side fairing (above the Kawasaki decal) so it isn’t super pristine. But I would imagine that it is repairable. I do notice a couple small scratches on parts of the tail and on the blue part of the lower left fairing. But for a 20-year-old bike of this caliber with fewer than 3k miles, it’s hard to fault a couple small things. There is a Muzzy exhaust instead of the stocker, however I
wouldn’t say that hurts the value. I can’t paste the seller’s description as it is not in the correct format, but jump on over to the auction to read about it here.
There you have it, another clean and low mileage example of a ZX-7R. As of writing this, the reserve is still in place. I will be keeping a close eye on the auction because I do believe it will be a good indicator of what a good example of a K1 will command in today’s market. If you want to keep tabs on it or try and score it for yourself, then take a look at the auction here!
