With its striking paint, tubular bridged alloy swingarm and four-into-one the ZRX’s appearance immediately back memories of the KZ1000R Lawson Replica.

I acquainted with the Kawasaki ZRX years ago while visiting a in California. He invited me on a ride some of the ZRX Owner’s Association at http://www.zrxoa.org ) members had organized in But I needed a bike if I was going to go!

I hadn’t owned a motorcycle in a while. My last bike was a Magna V45 from back in the 80s… But I really wanted to go, so I calling around to motorcycle shops in Vegas to find Unfortunately, the only bike I find that I thought keep up with the pace of the ZRX was a Davidson V-Rod. Almost all were for HD’s and the few sportbikes offered were beyond my range.

I dyno’d my at one of our annual rallies (near Ga) and she made 130 HP. The previous owner of the dyno’d it at 145 HP and there is a very difference in the two bikes. The track looks and sounds like a bike and pulls much than the 1200 (which a slouch by any means!). The torques of bike’s is something to be experienced! had the 1200 up to 155 (indicated) and still had for a bit more.

As the 1100 doesn’t have a (only a tach), I can’t say her top end is, but I’m sure it’s somewhere

As far as the handling of the ZRX goes, up to the point of one, I had never been on a handling bike. Bikes I had previously were horrible it came to twisties and I had my fair of road rash as a result. The ZRX on the hand was something entirely and a welcomed experience- despite her and weight.
