Kawasaki Motorcycle

Kawasaki has always been defined as the high-power motorcycle manufacturer, and its Ninja ZX-14 only reinforces that image.

Producing over 200 horsepower (claimed, with ram-air) and around 113 ft/lbs of torque, the monster 1352cc inline-four cylinder engine feels unburstable with its six-speed transmission.

Dual gear-driven counterbalancers keep it smooth.The unique aluminum monocoque chassis is light and strong.

The ZX-14’s adjustable 43mm forks and adjustable shock provide surprisingly good handling and a comfortable ride.

Radial front brakes bite on petal rotors, give the ZX-14 strong braking power with excellent feel. New 2011 colors include Ebony and Green/Black.
