Kawasaki Zephyr 1100

The classic road bike, the Kawasaki Zephyr 1100 , appeared in 1992 and was targeted at sales in Japan, Europe and North America. Model factory designation: ZR1100A and ZR1100B. The model is the progenitor of Kawasaki ZRX 1100 and is built on an air-oil engine from Kawasaki GPZ 1100.

In 1996, the regular version of the Kawasaki Zephyr 1100 (ZR1100A) motorcycle was replenished with a new modification with spoke wheels - the Kawasaki Zephyr 1100 RS (ZR1100B). It existed until 2003, mainly sold in Japan and some European countries.

Since 1997, Zephyr 1100 has left the export market, offering it a new model - Kawasaki ZRX1100. However, the Zephyr continues to be produced and marketed for the Japanese domestic market.

In 2002, the model receives carburetors with throttle position sensors (K-TRIC - Kawasaki Throttle Response Ignition Control). However, from year to year, with the introduction of more stringent environmental requirements, the engine was brought into compliance with the new emission standards and thereby lost power. So, until 1999, the Zephyr 1100 versions produced up to 93 hp. power, and since 2003 this figure has dropped to 86 hp.

In 2007, Kawasaki unveiled a commemorative version of the Zephyr 1100 in its original livery, after which it announced the final discontinuation of the model.

Of the features of the Kawasaki Zephyr 1100, a steel tubular frame, simple suspensions in the form of a conventional telescopic fork and a double shock absorber at the rear, disc brakes front and rear, a hydraulic clutch, a 5-speed gearbox, a 19-liter fuel tank (from 2002-2003 - 18.0 l) and from 263 kg of curb weight.

The "little brother" of the model is Kawasaki Zephyr 750.
