Kawasaki ZR-7

Kawasaki ZR-7 was first introduced in 1998, and official sales began in 1999. The appearance of this motorcycle was due to Kawasaki's desire to update the obsolete archaic classic model Kawasaki Zephyr 750 and offer the market is essentially the same Zephyr 750, but wrapped in a modern "street".
