Last Model of the Long Beloved Big Naked ZRX Series

KAWASAKI has announced that they will be releasing the final model of ZRX1200 DAEG as ”ZRX1200 DAEG Final Edition” on 15th September.
ZRX1200 DAEG is a ”Standard Japanese Naked” Model. The model with traditional style and unique riding sensation that has captured the hearts of many fans has finally reached its final chapter.

Naked Sports Model with Engine Adopted from ZZR

ZRX1200 DAEG is based on ZRX1200R. It has been modified and will be available only in Japan. Apparently, the model name DAEG is not familiar to riders in countries other than Japan.
DAEG is a limited model only available in Japan. It is produced to fit riding positions of the Japanese and also other aspects such as output and that’s the secret why it has been admired from so many riders.

The ZRX1100 Model equipped with liquid-cooling engine that derived from high speed tourer ZZR1100 was released in 1996. At the time KAWASAKI Zephyr was winning a big market. In contrast with Zephyr’s air-cooling engine, ZRX1100 specialized sport characteristics that feature images of Eddie Lawson’s Z1000R1. The bikini cowl model was more popular compared to the naked model that was released around the same time.

DAEG is Only Available in Japan

Eventually the engine was replaced with a 1200cc engine equivalent to the engine mounted to ZZR but due to numerous changes in emission regulations it required a full model change which gave birth to ZRX1200 DAEG, an exclusive model for the Japanese market.
It is 7 years after the first model was released in 2009 and due to emission regulations, ZRX will end production following KLX250 and W800.
