Say goodbye to the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R is still AWESOME, but it has to go now...

It’s a sad thing, but it’s finally time to say goodbye to the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R. One of our favourite bikes of all time, this 190bhp, 300km/h-capable machine was launched in the year 2000, taking on the likes of the Suzuki Hayabusa and the Honda 1100XX Super Blackbird.

While it’s still a hugely capable motorcycle, Kawasaki see no place for the ZX-12R in their lineup anymore. The sharper, more focused Ninja ZX-10R has taken the ‘pure sportsbike’ territory, while the even more powerful ZZR1400 reigns supreme in the sport-tourer segment. (What’s the world coming to? A 197-horsepower sport-tourer?!?!) The last few brand-new Ninja ZX-12Rs are now being shipped to European dealers, so if you’ve always wanted one, now’s the time to rush to your local Kawasaki dealership…
