Kawasaki Let the good times roll. Yes, knowthyself. Because the machine gracing these pages extends the outer limits of anything you've experienced in your motorcycling career. Knowing thyself means knowing one's limits - which is importa nt, becausethe 1994Ninja ZX-9R will unveil territory unknown to youterritory reachable only on a machine created from the sum of Kawasaki's revered engineering and performance-creating abilities. It's territory that demands respect. And responsibility. Howdoes the Ninja ZX·9R take you into the uncharted? With a mindbogg ling combination that takes the best of Kawasaki's championshipwinning Ninja ZX·7and the Speed King Ninja ZX-11 . The ZX -9R's exceptional power comes from a liquid-cooled 899 cc engine fed by a bank of big, 40mm carbs and Kawasaki's exclusive Twin Ram Air intake system. Every other K-bike fitted with this system simply annihilates everything in its class: It'8 up to your imagination what the ZX-9R will do. lt's all harnessed in a ZX based frame, one with geometry and rigidity good enough to have won ten championships on the national and international level. You don't need an imagination to ·7 knowwhat tha t means-the facts speak loud and clear. And your first ride will punctuate them. If you think you knowyourself, ride a ZX-9R. You'll learn things you never knew were possible. The Ninja ZX·11 needs no introduction-the world motorcycling press has taken care of that. And for the fourth incredible year in a row, it'll be the sport-touring superbike against which the others ar e judged. And like in the past four years, they'll probablycome up short. Why? Becausethe 1994ZX·11 carries on the tradition of all ZX -11s that have preceded it: It delivers more performance than any other street-legal production motorcycle in the world. If you're even a remotely serious motorc ycle enthusiast, you probably know the Ninja ZX performance ·11 formula by heart. For those who don't (and for those whoget an adrenaline rush just thinking about what the ZX· 11 is capable 00, here it is, in order ofhow it all happens: Twin Ram Air induction. 40mm semi-downdraftcarbs. Double overhead cams. 16 valves. 11:1compression. Digital ignition. High capacity curved radiator. Six-speed transmission. 5.5-inch-wide rear rim with a 180/55 ZR17 tire. The chance to own a legend does not comeevery day. Seize the opportunity: The 1994Ninja ZX ·11. The Ninja ZX-7 proves that "racing breeds better better street bikes.' Go ahead: Swing your leg over the seat and thumb the starter-you've arrived at Sportbike Nirvana. How do you get there? with a frame/suspension/tire combo that makes the ZX feel like it's on rails when apex-7 strafing. Powerful, progressive disc brakes. And most importantly, Kawsaski's exclusive Ram Air induction system- technology engineered and perfected in the heat of world-class competition. Absolute purists will revel in the ZX-7R-8cott Russell's World Superbike challenge is based on this machine. Need we say more? Ninja ZX and 7R: Their credentials speak for themselves. ·7 See all the Kawasaki Sportbikes at these participating dealers ARIZONA MESA Kellya Kawasaki 817 S.
