Launched at the Tokyo Motor Show this year, the four-cylinder 2020 Kawasaki ZX-25R generated a lot of interest amongst riders. However, with the spread of Covid-19 worldwide, motorcycle makers have delayed product launches but this has not stopped Kawasaki from introducing the 2020 Kawasaki ZX-25R Racer Custom.

Modified for racing purposes, the Zx-25R Racer Custom is not intended for public sale. Instead, it is destined to be featured in a one-make race series, due to be launched in 2021 in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Shown as a series of photographs on the Kawasaki Facebook page, the ZX-25R Racer Custom is fitted with accessories from various manufacturers. While you might not be able to buy the actual bike, you can purchase all the bits and pieces to replicate a Racer Custom and build your own when the parts are available in the market.

Among the components necessary to make the ZX-25R race capable is a carbon-fibre fairing, A-Tech seat and tank pads, Beet Nassert Evolution Type II titanium exhaust and Dunlop Sportmax 13SP tyres. Also on the shopping list is an RK chain and sprocket set, a Showa monoshock lifted off a Kawasaki ZX-10R, anodised ZX-25R fork tubes and Sniper rearsets and levers.

Outside Japan, Indonesia was supposed to be the first country to receive the 2020 Kawasaki ZX-25R, with a launch scheduled in April. This has now been postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis.
