2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R ABS SE

Turning the standard Ninja ZX-14R ABS into a Special Edition was not simply a styling exercise. The 14R SE gets stainless steel braided clutch and brake lines for improved action, and Brembo M50 Monoblock calipers up front with a Brembo radial master cylinder.

The dash is updated, and there are anodized bits here and there. Underneath it all, of course, is the incredible motor that will take you up to 300 k/ph, and a chassis to handle that mind-warping power.
