Why would you? The Z900 is better. The Z900 Café, slightly softened version of the Z900 is probably much closer to the ZRX.

Sometimes I think I miss my ZX11D. That bike was REALLY fast. But then I try harder to recall, and it all came back. That thing was heavy. Top heavy. With slow steering. Looked great. But it was a beast to manhandle around. Compared to my Ninja 1000, the N1k feels like a supersport!

I'd agree that the ZRX is heavier, and not as nimble as the N1K, but the ZRX's low end grunt leaves the N1K in it's dust.

Its a pity they never released a ZRX1400, based on the ZX14 engine.

Everyone says their ZRX feels faster than the Ninja 1000 but stock / equal mods, the Ninja 1000 is quicker 0-60. 1/4 mile, not sure but it would be darn close.

I just loved the look of the Rex. I liked the fact that you didn’t see that many of them. It fit me perfect and I could ride it to Maine from Florida, did!
I know what you mean, after I bought the 2020 1K SX I couldn't bring my self to sell the REX
See, that is a sweet looking bike! Keep it brother or sell it to me!!! Enjoy the two of them!!

I’d totally get another if I could find a good deal!

This one has been on CL for a while now, I can certainly stop by and see if it's for real but I have no idea if the price is right for the age or condition. It's located in College Station, TX.
