The 2011 Kawasaki Concours 14 ABS is a sport-tourer that can pile on the highway miles with the best world-class motorcycle touring rigs yet still negotiate the back roads with Ninja-inspired handling.

After debuting in 2008, the Kawasaki Concours 14 underwent significant improvement last year in the areas of comfort, convenience and safety. New bodywork not only looked better, it-increased comfort by routing more heat away from the motorcycle rider and passenger.

Additionally, a taller, electrically adjustable windscreen created a calmer cockpit experience with help from ducts above the instrument panel, which balanced pressure areas outside and inside the screen. Standard hand-grip heaters upped the motorcycle comfort quotient even more.

Updated electronics were also part of the recent upgrades. Not only was the bike’s K-ACT (Kawasaki Advanced Coactive-braking Technology) braking system upgraded to offer two modes of linked, anti-lock braking and higher overall performance, but a high-tech traction control system (KTRC: Kawasaki Traction Control) was added.

The heart of the Concours 14 sport-touring package remains as before; an amazing and thoroughly modern 1,352cc DOHC inline-four sourced from the legendary Kawasaki ZX-14 sportbike.

The Concours 14 engine generates excellent low- and mid-range power, all followed by a top-end rush that would turn most open-class sportbikes green with envy.
