The late 80’s were a great time for Japanese superbikes. The development of the aluminium twin-spar frame ushered in a new era of good-looking and precise-handling race-bred bikes. Gone were the days of the bend, wobbly superbikes of old. These new machines came straight from the track.
Kawasaki’s first venture down this path was the venerable ZXR750, back when a 750cc bike was still considered a Superbike. With it’s prominent twin headlights and air-dam tubes feeding the airbox from the front fairing, the ZXR750 was a gorgeous piece of motorcycle.
