1992 Kawasaki ZX-7R special

It's a 1992 ZX-7R, with a 1997 ZX-9R engine...

Found this rather interesting Kawasaki ZX-7R on EMA, and though the bike seems to be unfinished, the spec blows us away. The starting point was a 1992 ZX-7R, but very little seems to have been kept from the original bike.

To begin with, the engine is from a 1997 Kawasaki ZX-9R, with 41mm flat-slide carbs, Muzzy headers and custom-built stainless steel exhaust. Two nitrous canisters live below the bike’s tail unit, so power delivery should be all right.

Then there’s a long list of bolt-ons: PVM forged aluminum wheels, Metmachex single-sided swingarm, fully adjustable Ohlins rear shock, GSX-R1000 forks, Brembo billet brake and clutch master cylinders, ZX-7R fuel tank made in aluminum, with endurance caps and lots of carbonfibre bits everywhere. The fairing is from an MV Agusta F4, while the tail unit comes from a Yamaha R1.

We don’t know who’s built the bike and power/performance numbers are not available. But still, this is one of the most interesting Kawasaki ZX-7R based specials we’ve seen in a long time…
