2016 Kawasaki Concours 14 ABS | Buyer's Guide
2016 Kawasaki Concours 14 ABS

Enjoying some light updates last year that improved the rideability of the Concours 14 ABS, Kawasaki stands pat in 2016 with the Supersport Tourer.

Based on the Ninja ZX-14R hyperbike, the Concours 14 is capable of riding at high speeds for long distances without stressing the 1352cc powerplant in the least (an optional touring seat enhances comfort).

Not a one-trick-pony, the big C14 also has impressive handling credentials in the twisties, allowing you to keep up with most riders in any situation. The large saddlebags are useful and a 47-liter top box is optional, and the only thing a hard-core tourer will miss is the lack of cruise control.
