Kawasaki 1400GTR 2016

Global Horizons 

The Kawasaki GTR1400 that comes standard with panniers has had some considerable changes made to it since it was introduced in 2010. It has for 2016 been tweaked a little further. Here are a few of the GTR's exceptional features:

  • KI PASS Keyless ignition system
  • Tyre Pressure Monitoring
  • Variable Valve Timing System for the smoothest of engines
  • ​Electric Screen Adjustment - can be varied on the move

2016 sees the Kawasaki GTR1400 updated with a vent added to the electronically adjustable windscreen which reduces load on the rider by letting external air enter the cockpit area. With the vent open, the negative-pressure effect in the cockpit is reduced. This means less chance of the rider being pulled forward at high speed together with a redesigned seat that offers increased comfort for both rider and passenger.

Another update for this year is revised settings with the linked braking system together with a shorter first gear this allows a more natural brake feeling for low-speed manoeuvres like U-turns.

Kawasakis traction control system is designed to improve rider reassurance by delivering smooth riding on any slippery surface. The system looks for a difference in front and rear wheel speed. When the rear wheel spins (i.e. when rear wheel speed is faster than front wheel speed). The engine power delivery is now controlled to allow the rear wheel to regain grip.

K-ACT (Kawasaki Advanced Coactive-braking Technology) ABS allows you to execute controlled and balanced braking. This system was designed to complement any riders’ applied brake force. K-ACT ABS ensures an ideal brake force distribution to maximise braking your efficiency.

Another great feature is to warn riders of any tyre pressure changes. Tyre pressure sensors are fitted as a standard part. The system allows you to monitor your tyre pressure while riding. When tyre pressure falls below 220 kPa, a low-pressure warning is displayed.

Warranty Plus

Kawasaki warrants products with extended warranty to be free of manufacturing defects for an additional 24 months from the expiry date of the original manufacturer's warranty. The following products can be covered for private use* only:

Street-legal Motorcycles**

* Private use - a private user is defined as "any person who is acting for purposes which are not related to his trade, business or profession".

** Street-legal Motorcycles - only models sold as street legal by Kawasaki Motors UK may be covered.

Warranty Terms and Conditions

If, within the extended warranty period, a failure occurs which is determined by Kawasaki to be caused by a manufacturing defect, Kawasaki will, at its discretion, arrange for the repair or replacement of the necessary parts at no cost to the customer. This can be carried out by any authorised Kawasaki Dealer. However, it is recommended that repairs and servicing are done by the original selling dealer who has a full history and knowledge of each product they have sold.

Note the following terms used throughout this document:

  • 'Kawasaki' = Kawasaki Motors Europe N.V.
  • 'Dealer' = Official Kawasaki dealer authorised for the relevant product group.

This warranty contains obligations and exclusions solely on the part of Kawasaki Motors Europe N.V. and not on the part of any dealer.

Nothing in this document shall be construed as an agency between Kawasaki and any of its authorised dealers or their staff.

Under current EU Consumer Law, customers have certain statutory rights contained within legislation governing the sale of goods to consumers (private users). This warranty does not in any way detract from or affect the statutory rights of the customer.

Please note:

  • This warranty is only valid within European countries, which have official Kawasaki authorised representation for the product(s) concerned.

Warranty Exclusions

Kawasaki will not accept responsibility if, in its sole opinion, the part or parts require repair or replacement as a direct result of:

a) Alteration from standard specification in a manner, which affects the performance, durability or safety of the product or any of its component parts or genuine Kawasaki accessories, e.g.:

  1. The fitting of non-genuine Kawasaki parts or accessories, unless these are recommended or approved in writing by Kawasaki;
  2. Modifications or adjustments not recommended or approved in writing by Kawasaki.

b) The use of lubricating oils, fuel or other fluids (including cleaning materials) which are not in accordance with the recommendations contained in the owner's manual.

c) Improper uses, improper repair (this includes fitting of non-genuine or 'pattern' parts), accidental or fire damage and contamination by or submergence in water.

d) Deterioration due to normal wear and tear in service. The warranty does not cover routine service adjustment or normal replacement of service items (such as oils, fluids, spark plugs and filters), or wear and tear items (such as batteries, brake and clutch friction materials, drive chains or belts and tyres, cables and bearings). However, such items are covered if replacement is required as a direct result of a manufacturing or material defect.

e) Any competitive racing or related use.

f) Any damage or consequential damage caused by accident or by owner's or operator's neglect or abuse.

g) Improper storage or deterioration from the elements.

The warranty may not apply if:

i) The periodic maintenance and servicing is not carried out by an authorised Kawasaki dealer at the appropriate intervals specified in the relevant owner's manual. Evidence of this servicing must be produced, if requested, at the time of any warranty claim. It is the owner's responsibility to ensure the service record book is kept up to date by the servicing dealer. It is advisable also to keep copies of any service or repair invoices in case the book is lost.

ii) Any problem experienced is not reported to a Kawasaki Dealer within a reasonable time or the motorcycle is not properly inspected by that dealer. The owner should take all possible steps to prevent further damage as soon as any problem is apparent. Any consequential damage that is caused by the continued use of the product after a problem has been identified may not be covered by this warranty.

The warranty covers private use only. The warranty will not apply if the unit is used for any business or commercial purpose.

The following items are not covered:

  • Cables
  • Batteries
  • Bulbs
  • Accessories (Genuine Kawasaki Accessories are warranted for 24 months if registered to the machine by your Dealer)
  • Cosmetic appearance


In the event of a breakdown it is the owner's responsibility to ensure the product is taken to an authorised Kawasaki Dealer for attention. Kawasaki will not be responsible for recovery costs or any other costs associated with the transportation of a product to a Kawasaki Dealer.

Warranty Transfer

The extended warranty plan can be transferred to subsequent private owners of the covered product at no cost. Applications can be made by using the warranty transfer form in the warranty booklet or through any Kawasaki dealer.

Right to Cancel

The plan may be cancelled and a refund made in full at the purchaser's request within 30 days of purchase. An administration fee of £17 will be deducted from the refund.

A refund will also be considered after the start of the extended warranty period in case of theft or total loss due to an accident. In these cases the refund will be made upon the following basis:

  • Deduction of an administration fee of £17.
  • Deduction of any claim amount paid under the extended warranty programme.
  • Deduction of the proportional amount of the plan fee according to the number of months the extended warranty has been running.

This right to cancel is in addition to and does not in any way detract from or affect the statutory rights of the customer. Any refunds will be made by Kawasaki UK after application to and approval by Kawasaki.

Heated Grips

Effortless adjustable heated grips are fitted as standard and the manly rotary switch is located close to you for easy access with gloves on your hands.


The 37ltr large-volume panniers are designed to complement the GTR’s overall looks and styling package. The cases detach so simply and are water-resistant and easily hold a full-face helmet. They have been mounted as close as possible to the bike’s centreline and the bike’s centre of gravity, their lightweight construction was designed to minimise their influence on the bike’s centre of gravity.

Economic Riding Indicator

The ERI (Economical Riding Indicator) appears upon the LCD screen to indicate your fuel consumption as you ride. Paying attention to conditions that result in the icon appearing can assist you to maximise your fuel efficiency. You must ride in a gentle manner: less than 6,000 rpm, less than 30% throttle, under 160 km/h.

Fuel Economy Assistance Mode can be turned on and off by the rider. Turning on this mode automatically switches the ECU to a leaner fuel map that prioritises fuel economy over driveability. Once you turn this on, an icon will appear on the LCD screen. You must ride in a gentle manner: (to get maximum gain) less than 6,000 rpm, less than 30% throttle, under 160 km/h.


(Kawasaki’s Intelligent Proximity Activation Start System) is a master key system that allows you to walk up to the machine and it remotely activates the bike’s main switch and steering lock. For added security Kawasaki has incorporated an immobiliser into the ignition system.

Adjustable Screen

The standard electrically adjustable windscreen has now been made 70 mm taller and is also wider at the top. This increased height allows air to pass over the top of the screen and to flow smoother around the rider’s helmet. The wider top portion of the screen results in less wind bashing your shoulders and upper arms.


The Kawasaki GTR1400's multi-functional display unit now includes an outside air temperature monitor as well. Other new instrument functions include the K-ACT (Kawasaki Advanced Coactive-braking Technology) mode indicator, ERI (Economical Riding Indicator), and Fuel Economy Assistance Mode icon. The mode-Select button on the front of the left grip increases ease of use by allowing you to change LCD modes without having to take your hand off the handlebar.

Tetra-Lever Swingarm

To make sure that the GTR’s massive amount of torque is transmitted to the road as efficiently as possible, a highly rigid, dual-sided, 4-link swingarm is used. Called the Tetra-Lever, it has been designed to offset the lifting or squatting of shaft drives when the throttle is opened and closed.

Multifunction Mirrors

The mirrors are now 40 mm higher as well, offering increased rear visibility. The repositioning also offers you improved protection for your hands.
