I've had several requests over the past few years for more information
about my ZRX, which has been featured in quite a few of our WRR videos as
well as other product tests that we've done. So, I guess it's finally time
to pay homage to what is the Mighty Kawasaki ZRX.
Kawasaki ZRX1100-nice lady, nice bike
Kawasaki ZRX1100-nice lady, nice bike. VME club meet in Seattle, WA. Nice
young lady arrived on this ZRX1100. Kerker Exhaust, bar end mirrors, and Corbin Seat. Owner
reports one of the most comfortable bikes to ride. Look at the Corbin seat
and looks like a great place to spend an all day ride! The following is
from Wikipedia, "The ZRX1100 and the later ZRX1200 were styled like 1980s
muscle bikes, which were large bikes with large engines. They also were
considered a UJM and were considered a naked bike, with their exposed
engines. One of the colour schemes replicates Eddie Lawson's 1982 GPz1100

Video Theme inspired by the movie "Christine" Showing some of the ZRX's
Roll on performance in first gear. A few passes and photos. 0 - 75 mph in
1st gear happens quickly. Roll on wheelie is inevitable. Performance Specs.
Comparison and changes of the zrx11 to the zrx12 via Kawasaki sales manual.
NOTE: The manual gives your break-in rpm restriction when the bike is new,
but I recommend you ride the bike this way for your first 500 miles just to
get used to the bike before you drop the hammer. It can be a hand full.
DON'T RIDE STUPID LIKE THIS GUY WITHOUT PROTECTIVE CLOTHING. DRESS FOR THE
CRASH NOT THE RIDE!
