The “K” model of the ZX-7R, built between 91-92, was a homologation special built in limited numbers so Kawi could go racing in AMA Superbike.
For that extra dough you got a whole bunch of goodies, including 120 horsepower from a tweaked engine, close-ratio six speed transmission, Keihin 39mm flat slide carbs, aluminum (versus steel) tank, lighter subframe with a solo seat/fiberglass tail, and fully adjustable suspension with a remote reservoir rear shock.
The extra power came from a higher redline (+500rpm), higher compression, and larger cams, plus the bike weighed 10 pounds less. It may look rather similar to the standard J model ZX-7, but it was happier on the track than the street thanks to the above changes and a very tall first gear. In a 1992 test, Performance Bikes magazine got 110 horsepower at the rear wheel (Kawasaki claimed 120 at the crank) and hit 158.5 miles per hour – all while returning 41 average miles per gallon.
Fun fact: you can tell if the fairings are proper K model panels when you see the supplemental hole on the right side – that’s to adjust the flatslides. Regular J models had CV carbs and no adjustment hole.
This example (VIN: JKAZXDK12NA007012) represents an incredibly rare opportunity to acquire a 1-owner ZX-7R that’s never been ridden.
The odometer shows just 1 mile.
It has never had oil or gas put into it, and the seller says that it’s been stored properly. It is in excellent cosmetic condition – please see the album up top for additional images.
The original Michelin Hi-Sport tires are equipped and they still have the sprues.
Currently located in Reading, Pennsylvania, this ZX-7R is offered on a clean Pennsylvania title.
