Post-Listing Update – Despite 26 bids on eBay, this Kawasaki KZ1000R ELR did not meet reserve at $15,200.
One of 750 ever built, the Kawasaki KZ1000R ELR (Eddie Lawson Replica) was a limited edition homage to the mount of Eddie Lawson, 4x winner of the World Championship (among many other titles). It was aggressively set up, and with the exception of subpar shocks, consumers and reviewers loved this bike.
The 998cc inline four produced 79 horsepower in a bike that weighed 543 pounds. Top speed was just shy of 130, but numbers don’t matter to me with this bike. I always thought this was the definitive muscle bike, and something about that styling, particularly the front fairing, will always call to me. Want to learn more about this special bike? Check out this write-up from Motorcycle Classics, who call it “A mean machine in its day and collectible classic Kawasaki motorcycle today.”
This specific Kawasaki KZ1000R ELR is in excellent condition, with new tires and a battery. It’s got just over 4,000 miles and is factory original, including a NOS Kerker exhaust. In other words, it’s perfect! You’ll also get the owners manual and tools in mint condition.
