1998 Kawasaki ZX-11 from United States of America
What an amazing machine
This rear light has gotten loose.
This motorcycle is SO fast, and it's also extremely comfortable. It's very smooth; the power just rolls on beautifully, no matter what gear you're in.
I have a 1998 ZX-11; recently just bought it and I have no complaints.
When maneuvering it slowly it can be a bitch to handle; I mean this thing is heavy, but once you get moving, on the highway this bike really shines and it feels as light as a feather LOL. Coming from a 1995 Katana 600 to this, it was well worth it; what an upgrade.
These bikes are extremely rare, and I'm glad I found one in good condition with a lot of life left. I highly recommend this bike for anyone...
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

The ZX-11D was the last of the bikes I bought, and by far the best. Blindingly fast, strong brakes, comfortable, utterly reliable, it still resides in my garage, though in my advanced dotage I rarely ride it any longer. Now a doddering old fart with no riding buds (all have croaked or moved away), I keep the old beast mainly for sentimental reasons, a final remnant of my misspent youth.

I also own one of these beautiful beasts... mine a 1991, purchased new in the Seattle area. Have gotten 52 mpg from it on cold night run up I-5 from Vancouver WA., also never kept its front wheel on the ground over some small highway hilltops... She WAS and IS a proper BEAST. Reliable? Like a toaster.
I am older now. Don't ride enough to justify keeping it. Sure has been a pleasure!!
