"In six years as a road tester I've ridden most of the current crop of bikes down the one and three-quarter mile (Bruntingthorpe) runway. I can't remember any bike having such a profound effect on me as the... Kawasaki ZX12-R. Few bikes have the ability to make that big open space seem so small or the runway so short. The Hayabusa does it with top speed, sure, and the GSX-R1000 does it with awesome propulsion through the gears, but the ZX does it all." – Jonathan Pearson, Bike magazine. It's not surprising that Kawasaki's ZX12-R bested the opposition in Bike's comparison test (October 2002 edition) as it comfortably eclipsed everything else (Hayabusa, Blackbird, ZZR-1200, FJR1300, GSX-R1000) in terms of maximum power, producing 155.5bhp to the next-best Hayabusa's comparatively weedy 148.7 horses. Weighing slightly less than the 'Busa, the ZX12-R was marginally quicker to 130mph and only narrowly behind the slippery Suzuki on top speed (181.9/183.7mph). This ZX12-R has been owned by the current vendor from new and currently displays a total of circa 14,500 miles on the odometer. Serviced regularly, the machine is described by the private vendor as in good condition and was last run in April 2020. Datatag, a hugger, and a Datatool alarm are the only notified deviations from factory specification. Offered with a V5C.
