ZZR1100 D4, 1052cc,
1996 year,
162.3 mph maximum speed,
11.12 seconds @128.9 mph quarter mile,
maximum 119.0 horsepower@10,000 rpm.


Way too much engine power, too much weight, too much front braking power, and too much back tire traction for a beginner.

You would be safer taking the Motorcycle Safety Foundation class for beginners, then buying a 250 Ninja and riding it for the first 10,000 miles, then getting out your ZX-11.

[Most] try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds...It has taken eighteen hundred years to come back to the skepticism, the level of practicality that was our daily frame of mind then..." From the 1985 The Vampire Lestat novel by Anne Rice
