This bike is based on an early-1990s B1 model Kawasaki ZX-9R, which has been heavily modified by Simon.
The list of add-ons is quite long – wavy bake discs with Harrison six-piston callipers, Rizoma clutch and brake levers, carbonfibre front mudguard, Vapor motocross tacho and speedo, Harris race bars, Barnet clutch, braced JMC swingarm, Nitrox rear shock and MotoGP-style exhaust system, to name just a few.
The ZX-9R’s ram-air ducts and airbox have been modified and the ‘Phantom Head’ fairing is from the Belgium-based Tecno-Bike. Simon has got NOS bottle mounts fitted to the bike but says the NOS system is not yet functional, though it will be, soon. He also says he intends to do more – lots of polishing and the application of pearl blue paint with simple white graphics, which he intends to do on his own.
The standard B1 ZX-9R had about 125bhp and a top speed of around 265km/h. Depending on how the bike’s NOS system is finally set up, Simon’s streetfighter could have about 140-165bhp, which should certainly be quite enough to have a bit of a blast. Go, Speedymax…!
