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.

from ZZ-R/ZX SPECS

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.

“Do…not waste time protesting the self-inflated showmen and bloviating bullshitters who populate our culture. It’s more fun to marvel at them, to appreciate them, to be grateful for them, and to mock them relentlessly. ”-from the 2010 book American Freak Show by Willie Geist. "He wondered what difference any of it would make two hundred years from now." -from the book Cyclops by Clive Cussler.
