been looking at these for about 5 months from now when i sell the rs

any one had any experience with them? seems like you get a lot for what you pay, this one for example

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Kawasaki-ZX7R-P4-199...1QQcmdZViewItem

freaking gorgeous and more powerful than similarly priced r6/zx6r

the main thing is insurance, by the time i buy i will be 18 with just under a years ncb, full licence for about 4 months and v low crime area, but the capacity increase is making me think i wont get it.

sound about right? or are they pretty cheap?

cheers for any help

Really nice bikes those, insurance shouldn't be too bad if you phone around either; not much, if any, more than a newish sports 600 would cost.

i've got the ZXR750 what i really like, it uses the same frame and engine, the zx7r has new shocks and forks brakes ect but rides prity much the same (alot of people perfer the zxr on track!)

the zx7r looks the sex tho id recomend them..highly!

Im 18 2 NCB in a high ish crime rate area and paying around ?550 a year TPTF

but be warned they are hevey bikes, shes over twice the whight of a RS so cornering ect is alot diffrent, as for the CC increase take it easy the bike isent ovely powerfull in the bottem end but when you give her some she'll really go i was keeping up with new R6's with pedo on the back at the essex meet.

Also the sound they make

The ZX7R is the sex, nicest looking kwak IMO, I'd love one, considered one after I wrote the CBR off, but for me insurance was a lump more than a 6.
