“Sex On A Stick”

published 06/09/2004

Everything you'd want in a sportsbike, Practical

No good for touring, Not as headturning as others

Introduction ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ I bought my ZXR400 second hand in July 2003 for £2000. I rode my 8000th mile on it yesterday. It ferrys me the 11 miles back and forth to university most days, as well as longer 200 miles journeys to relatives across the country. I have been to France on it once, covering...

“zxr 400 l (Edited)”

published 04/08/2005

very light and nimble

needs to be pushed hard to get high speeds

I have owned the zxr400l for quite some time now and i belive it to be one of the best 400s around.It has great handling and is very low so it is good for the smaller of people it does lack power though but is what you would expect from a little 400. Even though it doent have loads of power it...

As a girlie who making her first foray into the sportsbike arena, I was very disappointed to find that I was a bit small for the Ninja 600 (or it was too big for me!) So I decided on the ZXR as it was small and easy to manage, I did have concerns about speed, well that as it was a 400 that it...

“Ninja Speed - ZXR400”

published 07/12/2000

big on style

struggles to break the sound barrier

A Real bike, 400 cc's, 4 Cylinders, but nearly 180 kg's and only 60 bhp; makes the ZXR a little less of a vicious tiger that you might have expected. I always wanted one from the day I turned 17, but made do with a Kawasaki KR1-s250.. a physically smaller, lighter bike without the status of the...

“love at first sight.”

published 05/05/2004

Corners so goood, insurance so cheap

apparently uncomfortable. But not for short people...

I got my ZXR (1992 L1 model) on a whim. I passed my direct access and was after a CBR400RR, but as soon as I saw my ZXR, with upside-down forks, black frame and the coolest styling, I had to have it. I have short legs, and I find the ZXR very comfortable in respect of the reach required to ride...

“My First Four Stroke”

published 30/04/2004

Corners like a dream

Very 'peaky'

I have always owned a two stroke and had started to feel that it was time to move onto something faster. I soon discovered that at 5'3" I was struggling to touch the floor on any of the 600's. I was told by numerous people that I'd be better of with a ZXR400, small, fast and very quick steering...

“Kawasaki ZXR 400 L”

published 14/11/2008

Fast, Light, Cheapish, Cracking looking bike, and ...

Wrists and backside hurt after long journeys.

Where do i start? What a FANTASTIC bike! I've had my ZXR 400 L3 for around about a year now, and it has been one of the most exhilarating rides I've had. The handling on these lightweight sports bikes is mind blowing, it just begs for you to twist the throttle more when your in the bends. The...

I brought my zxr 400 as a step up from my 125, and what a step up!!!!! This bike is unreal, she'll do a good 0-60 in 4 seconds and a great top speed of 135mph! What more could you ask for! The handling is out of this world and put together with the fantastic corner speed you get you can out do any other bigger bikes on the bends!!! I can't discribe how good these bikes are, faster, better looking and more reliable than other 400's, the down side is you must be 6 feet or under, as you'll find out if you get one. Overall i'd have this bike forever if I could, simply the best!!!!
