The ZZ-R1100 (ZX-11 in the US) was the bike that held the title of 'Worlds Fastest Production Bike' for the longest time. Seven years passed between the launch of the ZZ-R1100 in 1990 and the subsequent arrival of the CBR1100XX Super Blackbird from Honda.

The ZZ-R1100, a development of the ZX-10, was powered by an inline four cylinder, 16 valve, ram air fed engine. The ram air system literally forced air into the engine at high speeds making even more power.

To cope with the power, weight and high speeds the engine was mounted in a strong, bulky chassis comprising of an aluminium twin spar frame and conventional running gear.

The much loved ZZ-R1100 is a comfortable, two-up mile eater.

To keep up with the Blackbird and Suzuki Hayabusa, Kawasaki enlarged the engine to a 1164 cc unit in 2002 and renamed the bike the ZZ-R1200.
