Kawasaki ZRX1200 Review

Kawasaki ZRX1200 Overview 

Launched back in 2001, the ZRX1200 took retro-styled bikes to a whole new level. Modeled on the Eddie Lawson Z1100R replica, the ZXR1200 is the full package including a brilliant riding position, plenty of power and it’s certainly a head-turner.

Produced for over 6 years, Kawasaki must have been doing something right with the ZRX1200. The naked styled machine can pack a punch and will keep going for miles if you need it to, but regular oil changes need to be done.

The riding position of the ZXR1200 is worthy of a mention, Kawasaki certainly have built it for comfort with the footpegs in a relaxed position, not like a cruiser or a sports machine; it’ll keep you wanting to ride for miles.

Comfort
For a naked muscle bike, the comfort is very good, can cruise as well as quick blasts up to silly speeds
Ride Quality
Ride quality very good, but most bikes will need them replacing by now, loads of options for suspension on the market.
Build Quality & Reliability
Much better than Kawasaki are known for, it's not Honda build quality. but then the bike is much better!
Engine Rating
Not only an awesome engine, it's a ZZR1200 tuned for torque but it's very tuneable and loads of advice on ZRXOA.ORG
Brake Rating
Brakes are six pots, some say they are a bit average, but I've no complaints
Running Cost
Average running costs unless you really use all the revs, then you will be filling up every 120 miles or so.
Overall
Pros CommentsCharacter, style and performance. Most people I know who own a ZRX have more than one, different colours and states of tune. Green ones are faster !
Cons CommentsBetter seat
