Description

Evolution of the motorcycle during the 1980's was elevated to new heights. Manufactures were taking the leap and pushing the limits of performance, speed and style and Kawasaki was at the forefront of this movement. The ZX10 was hailed as the new flagship performance bike for Kawasaki and took the world by storm in 1988 by building the world's fastest production motorcycle for the 1988 model year. 135hp, 165mph top speed, quarter mile under 11 seconds, the ZX10 "Tomcat" was the bike everyone wanted to own, but never wanted to line up against. Cycle World Reported in 1988, “A motorcycle visually, mechanically and functionally awash in velocity, it is the new Sultan of Speed, a sportbike insuperable…. Nothing else mass-produced on two wheels even comes close. Now we have entered the Starship Enterprise era: "So radical is the engine's intake-port angle that the tops of its canted Keihin carbs actually sit higher than the uppermost part of the cylinder head…" That engine's now confined inside Kawasaki's first aluminum perimeter frame, proclaimed "e-box" on the fairing because of "its egg-like oval shape when viewed from above." Radial tires—17 inch front, 18 rear—and twin-piston brakes let the big Ninja stop in 107 feet from 60 mph, the shortest we'd ever recorded.”
This example with under 5k miles is an extremely nice example for any collector, rider or enthusiast. Bang for the buck and appreciating classics like this don't last long, you won't want to miss this one.
