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,...

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 more)

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... (read more)

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 more)

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.

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 more)

Kawasaki knew what they were doing when they built this bike. Bike is very stable, well balanced. Loads of torque a definite plus. The engine is reliable and strong.

Just bought a black 1997 Kawasaki ZX7 P2 off eBay, 22k miles, vgc - only £1400. Real bargain for such a bike. My last bike was a Suzuki TL1000r that was blindingly fast and scared me - it really was out of my league even with over 20 yrs riding experience.

It feels big, sounds big and is surprisingly comfortable when you're riding it. Definitely a sports tourer and... (read more)

My very first motorcycle was a 1995 ZX7. First time I rode it I knew I had to have it. The handling was what sold me and the seating was actually more comfortable then my 2001 ZX7R. With my 1995 ZX7 I knew the motorcycle was just an amazing motorcycle that's why I went out and bought a second and newer ZX7R, a 2001. The great thing with the ZX7R is that, it's quick enough to keep up with 600s (maybe even quicker) around corners and fast enough to keep up with 1000s on the straights. I would... (read more)

The Kawasaki ZX7R is all in all a lovely bike, although mine has various running problems, all down to incorrectly and unbalanced carbs. It is still a pleasure to ride, I find on a long journey my wrists and back begin to ache, but this maybe due to the fact I don't get time to ride much.

I have always used Bridgestone BT020's as I do a lot of mileage for fun and commuting and they work brilliantly in all weathers suiting the weight of the ZX7r.

This Kawasaki ZX7R is one underrated, under valued bike. Sure it's big, heavy and can be easily beaten by the fastest 600cc bike, but it has the advantage of a brilliant spread of power which makes it more usable and easier to keep your speeds high. When you're in its meaty mid-range, above 6-7k, you can forget about changing gears. The front end is awesome, I had my suspension setup for my weight and height and it really made a difference, just pick your line through the corner and nail it... (read more)

This guy must have been hard on his luck to let this black beauty go for so little. His loss, my gain. And what a gain it was. Prior to owning this bike, I rode a '78 KZ 650 for about 16 years, so had a soft spot for the indestructible nature of Kawasaki's.

'They' say that the Kawasaki ZX7R Sports Bike is lardy and underpowered. Well, relative to the GSXR750 (even the earlier SRAD) 'they' might be right but the operative word here is 'relative'. The ZX7R changed only in colour througout its 7 year production run, it wasn't broke so they did not fix it. Kawasaki always said this was first and foremost a road bike that you could race. As standard it weighs the better part of 450lb and has a 1440mm wheelbase. This is not much sportier than a Honda... (read more)
