Blown away: Supercharged Kawasaki ZRX1200!

Just imagine the supercharger howl.... This bike looks AWESOME!!!

We had showed you some pics of this supercharged Kawasaki ZRX1200 last year. Now, Sport Rider have a riding impression of the bike on their website here. Kent Kunitsugu, who rode the bike, says the ZRX ‘cranks out 200 horsepower and 9-second quarter-miles, and is as docile as a kitten and runs on pump gas!’

200bhp, 9-second quarter-mile times. Impressive, eh?

The bike itself is a 2003 model ZRX1200 that’s been fitted with an Eaton 45-cubic-inch Roots-type supercharger. Why a supercharger and not a turbo? Because the owner wanted a bike ‘that would haul ass without having to put up with low-speed rideability and ground clearance problems.’

Get the full story on the Sport Rider website here.
