SELLER SAYS: For sale is my Kawasaki ZRX1200S, a classic sports tourer with all the power from the 1200cc engine without the wind bending your neck! Fitted with an aftermarket Scorpion exhaust can, although I do have a standard can if you prefer that. Lots of new parts fitted including a new front tyre, levers, grips and more, ready for the summer. Not many big Z’s around for sale these days, many S versions get converted to R version with a bikini fairing. Open to sensible offers close to the asking price, no test ride without the cash! Live in Albany but happy to deliver within reason around south west or Perth. Contact Howard on 0400 xxx xxx SOLD (Albany, WA).

EDITOR TERLICK SAYS: Six grand? Really? It’s hard to believe that we can buy a bike as good as this for such little money. The big ZRX was a marvellous piece of kit when it was first released, boasting whoa-fast performance (150mph-plus top speed and a sub-11 second quarter mile), from a strong-as-an-ox 4-x-carburettor-fed motor along with a big comfy seat and suspension and incidentals that could carry you and your bestie and a heap of kit at warp-speed all day long, mile after mile and year after year after year. It wasn’t a big seller (most buyers preferred the ‘R’ model which had a touch of Eddie Lawson in its styling), and maybe that’s why we can find them selling at such bargain prices. This bike of Howard’s looks to be well preserved and not showing it’s 20-plus years at all. If you like the idea of a comfortable, reliable, fast, retro sports tourer that may well outlive your kids, you’ve found it.
