The Kawasaki GPZ1000RX (Ninja 1000R, model designation ZXT00A) was manufactured from 1986 to 1988. It had a 997 cc (60.8 cu in) four cylinder 16 valve engine.
The GPZ1000RX was to be the replacement for the original Ninja, the GPZ900R, but as it turned out the GPZ900R not only lived on alongside the GPZ1000RX, but outlived it. Just as the GPZ900R two years before, the 1000RX was the fastest production bike at the time, topping 260kph in the hands of some testers. Until in 1988 the GPZ 1000RX was superseded by the ZX10. Yet still the GPZ900R remained, even beyond the 1990 release of Kawasaki's new flagship, the ZZ-R1100, until 2003.
This example is easily the nicest we have seen - it has traveled just 8500 miles, new tires fitted and a full service completed, very nice and original.
