Bike of the day: Kawasaki ZRX1200S

Why it’s MCN’s pick:

When you hear ZRX1200, the general assumption is that you will be talking about the ‘Eddie Rep’ ZRX1200R. But wait just one second, there is another ZRX1200 and it’s considerably cheaper than the R…

The ZRX1200S is essentially the same bike as the R, but where the retro-styled Eddie gets a cool paint scheme and square front headlight in its nose cone, the S has a more modern half-fairing. Strangely, this proved its undoing.


Where the R remains a hugely popular machine, the S never caught on and was only sold for four short years. Quite why it failed to capture the public’s imagination is a mystery, but where prices for the R are sky-high at the moment, you can pick up an S for less than £3000, making it a bargain naked bike. Considering you are getting the same ZZR1100-derived motor as the R with a claimed 122bhp and 83ft.lnb of torque, that’s a bargain in anyone’s book!


Seller says:

“This 2003 Kawasaki ZRX1200S has 19,048 miles on its clock as well as a good service history, lots of previous MOTs and some receipts. The owner’s manual and spare ignition key is also included in the pack. Datatagged for security with an aftermarket exhaust silencer fitted, other extras include engine crash bars and a Givi rack. A smart example of the ZRX1200S sport tourer in metallic blue with an engine that is as sweet as a nut and the bike is comfortable to ride.”
