Rare bikes, share much with the CBR400RR.

Gear driven cams. Only in US 1989 and 1990 (I THINK).

Top out about 120 (or less)

Weigh about 400 lbs (street set-up) and made about 50-55 HP.

6 Speed Tranny.

Redline about 13-14K. Sounds amazing with a proper pipe.

A VERY nice one should sell for about 2000-2500

The one listed is probably worth about $800-$1000.

Here is footage of mine at TWS (Texas World Speedway) in LSTD B group. We were being careful not to spook anyone, but it did very well for a 400CC bike with 265 lbs (me) riding it.

Camera bike is Tankmonkey on his GSXR600.


By the way, my old one may be for sale for about $1700 all set up for track riding, including all the suspension work I did to it for my weight (OROR in Austin - Roger).

I bet you needed a cig. after you found that add....

If I remember correctly he has about 7 of them.

There was also a guy who had a ZX4 I think he was in Lerado Tx.
I thought that one would be cool..


Everyone used to make fun of me at my work because the pipe sounded great coming into work in the mornings.... but it was sooooo slow.(compared to the 600's and 750's they rode.)
