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!

    I was pretty much drooling about all the sport bikes in the 90’s at my dad’s kawasaki/suzuki shop as a kid. Even cleaning them is a fond memory.

    Had to search for more photos, but yes, it actually looks like it came with WHITE mirrors. How long did those last?

    That is one of the sexiest bikest ever made
