2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R ABS

When it comes to mind-blowing performance, the Ninja ZX-14R ABS is a stunning achievement. The motor has the latest technological wizardry, including three-mode traction control, switchable power maps, and a 32-bit ECU with fine-atomizing injectors for precise fuel delivery.

Even with all that power, the Ninja ZX-14R is docile if you have good control of your right hand, and the handling is sure thanks to a long wheelbase and a stern aluminum monocoque chassis.
