In the real world of overbanding, off camber bumpy B roads as well as the occasional track day adventure - this bike rocks! The fact that this bike stops, gos and handles within spitting distance of this exotica for little more than £5k from the showroom is the real point.
Race exhaust and dyno are obligatory and with some easy gearing changes, sticky rubber and the shedding of a few pounds you can embarrass your mates on their Blades, Gixers and R1s on road. Even at a standstill, few bikes can match the ZX7R. The endurance inspired looks and graphics that have a classic simplicity, add up to a package that truly deserves the title of ‘Race Replica’.
