I was just curious, a friend said they were going to redo the zx-7 and re-release it...:dontknow:
I am also suprised that Suzuki is the only mfr in this market. If AMA Pro racing showed some interest in a series, I bet all the other brands would follow suit by stuffing 750 engines into their 600 chassis's's's.:badteeth:but Im suprised no one has yet to try to give zuki some competition...

I predict that we will see a change in the next 2 years with the 750 class. Either everyone will jump in with a similar model (ie: Triumph 675) or everyone will get out.
What drove this class into extinction anyways?:headshake

He said there is "talk" of a new 750 V Twin (full farings) comming out by Kawasaki as a race replica not a standard, now he said this may be released in places such as Japan and Canada where there are different emissions laws. Who knows, we'll find out? He said it was going to be called the ZRR-750 and that it will have (now here's where it gets foggy ) 130 RWHP and it will be costing around 10K. Who knows dont give your hopes up just yet.
t: He also showed me Kawasaki's V-6 criuser/rocket (looked a lot like one of their concept bikes from a year or two ago and had some resemblense of the Tomahawk) made by the order; supposedly they only make about a dozen a year. I asked him the price for the beast and his response was 70K :eyecrazy:
Remember that ^^ is just "talk" and "rumors going around".
Wasn't it 2003 when Tommy Hayden won the 750 race on a punched out 600? The 600's were so close to 750's and then the 1000's came- so away went the 750 class.Doughboy said:What drove this class into extinction anyways?:headshake
tom said:The Superstock race was just amazing. A Kawi 636 beating all those 750's on a horsepower track?! That's just Tommy Hayden flogging the crap out of that bike. He was eating them up in the infield, and using the draft to his advantage on the banking, making the bigger bikes pull him around at higher speeds than his bike could do on its own. I don't think he thought for a moment that he was going to win, since every lap prior he got swallowed up well before the finish line. He benefited from those three or four guys behind him tripping all over themselves trying to pass each other. Great racing!
