Summary:

Super fast, comfortable and reliable bike

Faults:

A metal bracket holding the instruments inside the fairing broke at approximately 20000 miles.

Simmerings in the front fork broke twice, leading to leakage and repair.

Service intervals were quite short, or every 6000 km.

General Comments:

The Kawasaki ZX 11 D1 was very powerful, at least for those days standards.

The power, sound and "charisma" of the bike was very appealing to me.

Anyway, it was a little bit heavy and not too easy to handle.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
