2012 ZX-14R quarter-mile video

Want a point-of-view look at what it’s like to pilot a bone-stock 2012 Kawasaki ZX-14R to a 10:18 ET in the quarter mile?

Watch the POV video above as recorded on a Go Pro camera by Ultimate MotorCycling’s President, Arthur Coldwells.

Last week, Coldwells was at the 2012 Kawasaki ZX-14R press launch, which took place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. After some quick lessons from AMA Drag Racing Champion Rickey Gadson, Coldwells was let loose on the quarter-mile drag strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

Launching the hypersport at 3500 rpm, Coldwells was able to achieve a quarter-mile time of 10:18 on the Kawasaki, which was totally revamped for 2012.
