“1997 Kawasaki ZX7R (P2 model)”

Written on: 29/04/2014 by SeanVincent (7 reviews written)

In 1997 I bought a brand new black ZX7R Ninja. It was the best looking sports bike on the market at the time in my opinion, it looked mean and fast just standing still. The front end sat low and the rear high. Without doubt the ZX7R is the best handling bike I have ever owned. The front end was incredible and simply steered wherever you wanted it to go - even under heavy braking in a curve this thing would not sit up. It was very quick and wasn't that far off 170 mph when held open. Most… Read Full Review

“Old skool hooligan”

Written on: 06/05/2013 by Kingwaz (2 reviews written)

This is my second bike I have bought as a project, I picked it up November last year for a bargain £1000 because it had had a low speed drop and fairing damage, I spent the winter tinkering with it to get it how I wanted it to be. My maiden trip was a few days ago and I'm still smiling! This thing rocks, the brakes are superb really good feel and not spongy at all, gear changes are crisp and precise the shift pedal was set too low so that got adjusted and now things feel much better, handling… Read Full Review

I bought a fireblade then a zx7r then an R1 and then a zx7r then another R1 and then you've guessed it- another 7r, say no more I'm keeping this one, and in all honesty I can go quicker on the 7r then all the others. A true classic… Read Full Review

hi there, i am 6ft 5 and i have had 2 fireblades which were excellent and i now have a 2004 r1 which i cannot get on with, its very wooly in the corners no matter how i set it up, ive had it over a year and i am now selling it, does the zx7r handle and corner well???? the r 1 felt like it was always on ice which seems to be a popular comment on this bike, i just want something that will handle well, my other option is a 954 blade, can you help??? many thanks, laurenced jarrett

Written on: 13/03/2011

Truely one of the best things i have done was to buy my zx7r, i have had a long absence from the biking scene ( my last bike was a Z750E - now living in the greenhouse), this bike handles better than others i have ridden (including Ducati Hailwood Replica) , it brakes on a sixpence and has the power to shame more modern bikes, it may be a little heavy, but once on the move that weight melts away- and its looks still get admiring glances from both car drivers and other bikers -I LOVE THIS BIKE… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2010

I bought my P4 as a stop gap to get me back into biking before I went newer/bigger. I can now honestly say after owning her for a while, there is no way I will be parting with her. At stand still she looks stunning with her customer paint job that has had many an admiring comment. On the go she sounds awesome with her stainless pipes. I like that she is big and heavy as this makes a stable/planted ride that begs you to go faster. My 6'4 height works well with the frame and riding position and… Read Full Review

I have recently just bought mine, and I second everything you have typed! I have purchased an '98 all black with all chrome decals, as well as chrome handles on the tail, at a stand still she is absolutely brilliantly Stunning. She sports a straight pipe, with a slight turn of the wrist, transforms into a stalk raving Hooligan. king Kong on crack. fully open the throttle and you better have plenty of road, and one hell of a grip. in proper hands she will more embarrass many 6s' and still will hang with todays 1000's. A Bike any sport bike rider must own at least once in a lifetime. I'll get rid of the wife before I let it go. LOVE IT TO BITS!

I ve had the zx7r for a couple of years now and wouldn t dream of having anything else, it comes a bit costy especially when ridden to the limit but what a beauty, it s still does 160 on the motorway chew quit a few pads especially in town but the handling is absolutly superb the repartition of the torq coming out of a turn is pure honey, i ve had bigger, newer, faster, lighter surely cheaper to run but Hey...NEVER better than the almighty ZX7 R.

Written on: 21/09/2009 by kingofreviews (89 reviews written)

Cracking bike. As has often been said before the Kawasaki ZX7R is heavy, but for most of us that makes it feel better not worse - more stable and planted. And of course what it does have is a fabulous front end - really, I can;t think of many other bikes I have ridden that have inspired more confidence as you chuk it into a corner even on a track. And maybe that's the point with this bike - not being overpowered makes you less twitchy on exiting corners, and happier to give it plenty of… Read Full Review

I spent a lot of time looking into these Kawasaki ZX7R bikes. I have to say its the best thing I have ever done when I decided to buy mine. Its solid..steady and fills you with confidence. Not once has it tried to bite me and has taken everything in its stride.
Its quite happy pottering around town but really comes into its own when you let it start to breath...and oh how it breathes..the induction roar is something you can never get bored of hearing and it just increaes the grin factor x10… Read Full Review

I keep my Kawasaki ZX7R bike in the living room as I love it to bits and it is the best bike I have ever owned. I'm a hardcore rider who throws the bike in all sorts of tests but this beast is so reliable and yeah, you don't need a big engined bike to keep up or outclass other riders. It's the experience. A big fan of the Kawasaki ZX7R… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/04/2009

The Kawasaki ZX7R is a fantastic bike, very strong and superb handling. It is on the heavy side, but very stable at high speed and in corners. I had mine since 1998 (bought new), can't believe it's been 11 years already!! In Canada, the riding season is short, but every time I get on it, the feeling's just the same. With my 26 years of riding, it is till the best bike for me. It has K&N filter, steel lines, and carbon end-can w/ 130 bhp@ rear. Running a mixed Mich-Pilot Sport front and… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/03/2009 by ross1971 (1 review written)

Bought my Kawasaki ZX7R 1996 zx7r for £1100 spent a little on a hugger and brake lines and I can honestly say its the best value for money bike I've owned.
Was at a bike shop open day recently and it got more attention than the new bikes and had 4 offers to buy it ( red and purple ).

Everyone should own one at some point in their biking life, if only as a benchmark for all the others. Good points are handling, looks, engine, storage and ability to show the 1000 boys how it is done!… Read Full Review

I own 5 motorcycles and I prefer to ride zx7-r. It has to be one of the most comfortable sport bikes I've ridden, and you can't touch it in the corners. never been a problem so far mechanically, and looks good. A little on the heavy side, not enough power to keep up with pack on straights… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/12/2008 by fabio67 (2 reviews written)

Reliable, stable, lots of torque, fast, I got 267km on the clock on motorways, where the are no limits.
Enough space under seat to store 3 anti cut heavy duty chains and a spyball alarm.
As with all sport bikes, space needed for rain gear too to fit somewhere.
A note to bike manufactures, there are a lot of countries where it rains, I ' m 41 and will ride till I die, but as I get older I will always speed. But I ' d like to stay dry and not carry a bag everywhere! Please take this info onboard… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/10/2008

I have owned loads of bikes in the last 25 years, from 250 rockets to 1200 cc sports tourers. I picked up a 96 Kawasaki ZX7R for £500 with only 4,500 miles on the clock. After a good service, new fork seals (where it had been unused for ages) a new battery, tyres and a bloody good clean, I love it! Sounds fantastic with a skorpion end can. Just fitted single seat conversion and it turns head everywhere I go.......one of my fave bikes ever!… Read Full Review

I have just bought a 98 P2, It's my first bike for about 20 yrs, I can't ride it yet as my test is in 16 days, but I already love it's looks and although I can't ride it on the road, I will be riding it this coming weekend on a private road and I'm really loking forward to that, it has an akripovic exhaust system and sounds great, once my test has been passed I will be looking for people to go out with on a ride, how does it handle the cold weather?

Written on: 07/10/2008

I have owned a zx7r p6 for 3 yrs now and have found it to be very reliable, when the p and n models were relised they were reportedly the fastest road going superbikes of there time, it's still a head turner even after they stopped producing it in 2003, as far as im aware there are still privateer racers using these bikes on the race track competing against the more modern superbikes of today, you will also find them on most trackdays, they are renowned for the stability and handling which… Read Full Review
