ZZR1400 & ZZR1400 Performance – The Thrill Seekers

The latest Kawasaki ZZR1400 ABS has been blessed with a bigger engine that starts by offering not only more power but unprecidented torque figures. Do not be alarmed, the ZZR1400 maintains its ease of use along with its smooth power delivery. Additionally there are now 2 available power modes, and the all new traction control also has 3 adjustable levels that can be selected in relation to surrounding conditions.

Another new feature for the ZZR1400 is the back torque limiter (Slipper Clutch) that is provided to reduce rear wheel chatter or lock up during high rpm downshifts. Added to the latest refinements of the ABS system, safety is high on the list.

The Kawasaki ZX14 or Kawasaki ZZR1400 as it is 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 top speed of around 200mph the ZZR1400 is 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 for the previous model 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. This new model exceeds it predecessor in every way.

The engine position and Uni-Trak rear suspension linkage complementing the rigid frame gives the bike great controllability at high speeds and superb road holding when sports riding.

The bike also offers a relaxed riding position with low pegs for ample leg room, with its flowing design and the new design of quadruple projector beam headlights illuminating the road ahead this has to be the bike of choice.

Sculpture and curvature changes to the newest model that the sparkling Kawasaki special edition paint scheme highlights beautifully are not just cosmetic and have been implemented to ensure excellent stability at high speeds and improved heat dissipation from the engine.

A functional work of art!

The Kawasaki ZZR1400 Performance is further enhanced with the addition of a pair of Akrapovic exhausts, a colour coded seat cowl, a sports screen and a Kawasaki tank pad.
