2012 Kawasaki ZX-14R | First Impressions

2012 Kawasaki ZX-14R Video

Earlier this month, Kawasaki invited some moto-journalists to Las Vegas Motor Speedway to rip the asphalt on the all-new ZX-14R, which was totally revamped for 2012.

Included in this bunch was Ultimate MotorCycling’s president, Arthur Coldwells. While there, Coldwells and fellow journalists received a few lessons from AMA Drag Racing Champion Rickey Gadson before taking the 2012 ZX-14R down the quarter mile.

Besides dragging Kawasaki’s hypersport, the group also did some sport riding, showing the "agile" characteristics of the new machine.

In the video attached above, Coldwells and the others discuss the ZX-14 R.
