Alloy tank, flat side carbs, mag bits here and there. homologation special for the green fanboys. Had a friend who raced one, kept it mint the whole time. Rented it out to another rider for one race and had it chucked into the weeds, wrecked the tank and too many of the rare bits.

Of couse this is from way back in 92, the glory years of WSBK. Ducati 888, Honda RC30 and so on.

Hands up which of you were just starting high school then!

That was my first sportbike back in the day. It's also te same bike they caught on fire with me riding it overseas. I've still got the pic in my gallery. It is a freaking awesome bike! Looks like sex.

That bike was the shit in it's day. Wasn't the suspension upgraded from standard fare back then as well?

I expect that it would still get the adrenaline flowing these days in fine style.

FCR and better cam means more HP. Shock and fork upgraded stiffer springs, comp. and rebound adjustments and trick remote res. Bodywork include alum. tank, mono seat and lightweight rear subframe. Slipper clutch rounds out a competitive bike in its day. I believe Scott Russell won a championship on one. Unfortunately most were bought and raced immediately; leaving few mint version remaining like this one.

I had the J version which, on appearance, looks just like the K. It does not have the trick parts but still a great bike.

BTW, I was doing commerce at SFU when this came out. I had a Ninja ZX6 at the time and boy did I lust after the ZX-7R when I saw it at Richmond Motorsports.
