Ys, Kawasaki printed ZXR on all the guages. I have a 1995 ZX-7 and that confused me to start with also. The difference is that the R models have a solo seat, Aluminum gas tank, Flatslide carbs among other racing accessories. They also put out more horsepower, about 20 more! The R model you are refering to is a K-1. Hope that helps.
