Kawasaki ZR-7S test


This is less than a consecration for the ZR-7- which takes its as the brand-s bestseller with units sold in 2002- or a of 7- compared to 2001. And since alone is obviously not enough- it has to play the troublemaker in a hard market. The roadster market- dominated by two benchmarks — the 600 Fazer- uncontested queen of the and the Suzuki 600 Bandit.

So what is the for its success that is what we to discover during this

Esthetique: COMPLETE

Launched in in a skeleton version- the ZR 7 soon attention and went into the top 15 for in France within the first six of 2000. All it lacked was some to make it more convincing the competition — that in 2001 and the ZR-7 was joined by a S- which attracted a wider The instrumentation is legible and well it-s a pity though there-s no clock.

Kawasaki has preferred to add a petrol The controls are functional but still warning lights. It-s it comes to storage that are not so good. Under the saddle is only room for the smallest of us to be Bigger versions take a lot of to get in.

And then there is only space left for some The ZR-7 makes up for that though- the petrol cap is mounted on a and is perfectly integrated and the two lateral and stands simplify its use and the maintenance.


The engine is none other the good old four cylinder the defunct Zephir- redesigned and black for the occasion.

With a cylinder capacity of 750 CC it 76 horsepower at 9-500 revs and 6.4 mkg of from 7-500 revs. The position is an ideal compromise for the mid-way between sporting and The footrests are relatively low and allow the legs to wrap perfectly the fuel tank.

And that is the ZR-7 is totally different its competitors although they torque values that are or less identical they are at regimes 2-000 revs

The result is that the Kawa present from low revs and itself fully right up to the of the red zone. An advantage compared to a 600 that needs to be whipped below 5-000 revs which the cavalry remains in the stable — It has to be said in going from the Zephir to the the engine has had an electronic regulation added to the fuel feed on each carburettor and a 4 in 1 exhaust of 2 silencers.

All with the aim of increasing the torque at low and revs. And they have achieved their objective. The is full- it picks up and accelerates and that incites you to drive it Thus- the ZR-7 manages to the benchmarks of the market- by offering identical performance to a Suzuki 600

The 0 to 100 kph is swallowed up in 4 seconds and the 1-000 from a standing start in 23.6 seconds.

Only the 600 remains a notch above the with a few tenths of a second

On the road: WELL BALANCED

Kawasaki ZR 7

it comes to the brakes- there is a disc at the back and two discs in with a diameter of 300 mm and 2 piston — which is a long way the 4 pistons per calliper that the has inherited from the R1. To use all this fully- the cycle part of the is at your service. It proves to be rigorous.

Agile and lively- the ZR-7 has against leaning into and does so with disconcerting The Bridgestone tyres that are at manufacture ensure first-rate and definitely have something to do this. With this the Kawa is able to offer polyvalence ; especially since it has the semi-careening.

The protection provided is correct up until speeds are severely reprimanded by the boys in

To this face-lift has been a new adjustment of the rear shock Adjusted on the soft side on the " Naked " which has no windscreen- this is comfortable. This too improves the of the bike- especially when you are as a couple.

In the city the ZR-7 shines its handling and by the availability of its engine. where the Bandit and the Fazer cruelly because of their of torque at low revs that them seem almost The disappointing thing about bike though is its braking. Not it-s particularly bad- far it.

It-s more that it seem to be in sync with the of the bike.

The … of the front would merit more and the bite that follows- vigour. On this point- is no need to underline that a 600 Fazer would have you up short long before. a sale price that make the competition pale- the ZR-7 adds yet another to its arc.

For 6-479 Euros or 380 less than a 600 Fazer for 150 cc what-s more- you can offer the polyvalence of a bike that is full of character.

A very full engine- a and fun cycle part- comfort and protection- all for a reasonable price- is the recipe which seems to for this Kawasaki and we have no understanding that. All that is is the icing on the cake. Graft on the from the Fazer and a clock.
