The ZX7R and its homologation twin the ZX7RR were released in their final form in 1996 and stayed on the production line largely unchanged till 2001. The bike is derived from the earlier ZXR750 which was piloted by Scott Russell when he won the World Superbikes championship in 1993.

The ZX7RR was used successfully in superbike championships the world over (BSB, AMA, Italian, German, Australian, Japanese etc) but was most prominently by the likes of Akira Yanagawa and Anthony Gobert in the official Kawasaki factory team Fuchs Kawasaki as they battled the Ducatis and Yamahas of the time in the World Superbikes championship during the late 90's
