How about a tasty Kawasaki ZX-7R?
Kawasaki’s slightly delayed response to the GSX-R was the ZX-7, which arrived in the USA in 1991, followed shortly after by the rarer and cooler ZX-7R homologation special. One of the first (maybe THE first) bike with a pressurized airbox, we had a lot of fun cracking wise about its vacuum cleaner intake hoses. Its stiff rear shock was no joke, though, and neither was the rest of the bike, with its close-ratio six-speed, flat-slide carburetors, aluminum gas tank and other racy components. $10K may or may not be a bargain depending on the depth of one’s pockets, but this appears to be a swell, clean California one!
