Kawasaki ZZR1400

The Kawasaki ZZR1400 for 2008/2009 changed in performance characteristics. Performance has been boosted both in the low rev range and at peak. Not only offering better mid range, but maintaining its position of most powerful sports / sports tourer in the market place today.

Colour options for the Kawasaki ZZR1400 for 2009 are Metalic Green and Black

The Kawasaki ZX14 or Kawasaki ZZR1400 as it will be known in the UK is a stunning motorcycle that turns its Ram air - fuel injected motor into a powerful, torquey sports tourer that will be excellent on any occasion. With a suggested 195bhp and a potential top speed of around 200mph the ZZR1400 will be the most powerful Kawasaki branded motorcycle and will challenge the best of the best and leave them wanting. It will ride at any speed - handle with assurance, has styling to draw a crowd at every stop and turn heads on every corner.

MCN headline said it all - The Kawasaki ZZR1400 - 0-60 in 2.5 seconds. Can you imagine, it took longer to read the statement than it would take for this bike to reach 60mph.

The Kawasaki ZZR1400 is developed from the ZZR1200 and ZX12R has a chassis every bit equal to the power plant, with its advance aluminium monocoque frame to give responsive handling and lightweight feel it is a very slim and compact package. The engine position and Uni-Trak rear suspension linkage complementing the rigid frame gives the ZZR1400 great controllability at high speeds and superb road holding when sports riding.
