The classic motorcycle model `` Kawasaki ZRX 1100 was produced from 1997 to 2000. and positioned itself as the successor to Kawasaki Zephyr 1100 (although it continued to be produced in parallel). 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.

The 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.

The Kawasaki ZRX 1100 features a classic steel frame, advanced adjustable suspensions, powerful 6-piston front brakes, a 20-liter fuel tank and 244 kg of curb weight.
