Here’s a first year model of the Ninja ZX-11, a bike that held the title of fastest production motorcycle until 1995 (beaten by the Honda Super Blackbird). With just 8,029 miles and a few choice upgrades, this is a fine example of the breed.
After three years (known as the C model), the ZX-11 (known as the ZZ-R 1100 outside of North America) was redesigned into the D model. This is a C1, which produced about 145 horsepower from a 1,052 cc engine and was capable of hitting 175 miles per hour, according to Performance Bikes. For more on this record setting bike, check out ZX11.info.
The original owner of this bike kept it until 2013, at which point he had put just 4,500 miles on the bike. The second owner (now seller) went through the bike, adding new brake lines, rebuilding the carbs, adding a Kerker exhaust, and having Noleen Racing rebuild the suspension. Touring friendly extras include a Throttlemeister cruise control and Bagster tank cover. Find this Ninja for sale in Kanata, Ontario, Canada for $5,000 or best offer here on Kijiji.
