Main competitors:

The motorcycle was based on the engine from the sports-tourist Kawasaki GPZ 1100, which was slightly derated, reducing the maximum power and increasing the torque in the zone of low and medium revs. The result is a classic muscle bike with the dynamics of a sports bike and confident traction throughout the entire range of work. The engine is similar to the engine from Kawasaki ZZ-R1100 and differs from it in the camshafts, the shape of the sump, the lack of 6th gear and the use of carburetors with a reduced diffuser diameter.

Kawasaki ZRX 1100 was targeted at the Japanese and European markets, but since 1999, it has also been sold in small numbers in the US market.
