Kawasaki's kings of cool

So many to choose from, different eras, different technology but the same Kawasaki cool factor

I voted ZZ-R 1100, this bike was God when I was a teen and I think it's still cool and looks amazing!

Such a glorious machine in epic condition always makes my day brighter!

89' ZX-7

Although I've never had the chance to fork one, it remains (in my heart & mind) the greatest time in Kawasaki's history, where it became painfully-obvious that they had HAD ENOUGH of being pushed-around by all the other bike-manufacturers, in the sportbike-wars. Not since the short-lived success of the Uni-Track GPz-750 did we enjoy the ability to truly breath a sigh of relief & contentment, while watching OTHER brands at the starting-line of ANY major road-race. We now FINALLY had 'Team-Green' up there in pole-position...

...and there we STAYED for quite-awhile.

Without question, all incarnations of the venerable ZX7 were THE most bad-a$$ looking 750's out there.

I like the bike and the period, I was just a kid back then and couldn't help stopping in front of the local Kawi dealership and staring at bikes like that every time...
















...and it still happens quite often today, I must admit

Very interesting poll

GPZ 900 for me, it was cool before cool was even a thing.

NOTHING beats it in terms of bada$$ery!
