2003 Kawasaki ZRX1200R


Top of the range Muscle-bike for the experienced rider


Nothing has gone wrong with this fine machine.

General Comments:

This would have to be the best muscle-bike on the market.

The instant power and superb handling make it very comfortable to ride. The front suspension could be a little firmer, however.

The seat is wide and well padded, making long trips a breeze.

I have added a slightly taller screen to reduce buffeting.

The bike is fitted with a Giannelli exhaust can, and a Dynojet kit.

There is an huge quantity of aftermarket bits available.

I have owned a number of fast bikes over the years, but this bike scores top marks for all round use. It is equally at home as a commuter or fun bike.

The cost of ownership is about average for its class.

I would not recommend this bike to beginners, as it is relatively heavy, and powerful. It is very easy to spin the back wheel or pop a mono.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
