Due to licensing laws, Japan saw much more competition in the 400cc sportbike market compares to the US and Europe. Kawasaki’s entry was the ZXR400, and compared to the competition it was more of a race replica.
The 398cc four revs up to 14,500 rpm and produces 62 horsepower in the process – somehow enough to get this bike up to 140 miles per hour. It was said to be an excellent performer that just felt a little gutless under 8,000 rpm. For more on the ZXR400, check out this review on Visordown.
This example has 10,735 miles and it said to be completely stock. The seller admits that there are “lots of little issues”, all of which are cosmetic. The seller suggests that because of the numerous small problems, this bike would be a good candidate for restoration. Or if you can get over the looks, the bike “runs excellent” and it’s just had a service with a new battery so you can ride it while you make it pretty again.
