Bike of the day: Kawasaki ZXR400

Bikes for sale

Supersport bikes may be overlooked nowadays, but the Suzuki GSX-R600 is one of the most usable examples of a supersport bike out there.

Seller says

“The time has come to sell my ZXR400. I've owned the bike for 13 years. Around 2008 the bike was stripped and every bracket mount was powder coated gloss black, the frame and swing arm were done the same colour, the wheels were done white. A full stainless Micron exhaust was fitted with a carbon end can. The bike has covered 13,690 mile, this is backed up with all old MoT slips - even got some of the old hand written ones. Some years I've only done around 500 miles. The bike has been SORN for the last 3 years as I just haven't got the desire to ride on the road any more - I just started a family so it's time to move on.

"The bike has got purple braided Hel brake lines chain and sprockets have only covered around 1000 miles and the brake pads are double hh rated and have plenty of meat left on them. This last month to prepare the bike for sale it has had: 2 new Pirelli Diablo tyres, a new battery, oil change, k&n oil filter, wrench off type air filter, a fresh 12 month MoT as of July 14th, old fuel drianed off and new fuel added, replaced the factory stickers (petrol only) on the tank and chain information on the swing arm. These bikes are getting hard to find now and there are only ever a handful of road going ZXRs for sale on here. I'd love to hang on to it for a few more years but it would do more harm than good to the bike. Overall this is a very well looked after bike. Any questions please ask, hopefully the pictures do this bike justice.” 

MCN says

“What can we say that the seller hasn't already said? The ZXR was one of the great 400cc sportsbikes of the late '80s and early '90s and they're becoming hard to find now - especially in good condition. Many were race and/or crashed, so to find one that's been so well looked after is rare. The rarity of these bikes and the memories many older riders will have of them means prices are only likely to go up, and this one is good value.”
