Kawasaki 1400GTR Concours 14 ABS
The Kawasaki 1400GTR is a sport touring motorcycle manufactured by Kawasaki. It is also known as the Concours 14 or ZG1400 in various regions. The 1400GTR, which is built on the ZX-14 platform, was announced in September 2007. It is the successor to the original GTR1000 (Concours), which was produced from 1986 to 2006.
The engine is a transversely mounted 16-valve inline-four of 1,352 cc (82.5 cu in). It has variable valve timing, which was derived from a Mitsubishi Motors car engine, and allows the intake camshaft phasing to be advanced by up to 24°. This constant change occurs gradually as the rpm rises and falls.
The injected engine in the 2008 and 2009 versions generates 114 kW (153 horsepower) at 8,800 rpm and torque of 136 Nm (100 lbft) at 6,200 rpm. The ram-air intake raises the output to 117.6 kW. (157.7 hp).
It is intended to handle the opposing drive and suspension forces (known as the shaft effect) that are common in shaft-driven motorbikes with strong engines.
The original Concours and the Concours 14 both contain a slipper clutch, which allows the rear wheel to freewheel to reduce the risk of sliding when the rider applies heavy engine braking.
The 1400GTR has a keyless ignition, KIPASS (Kawasaki’s Intelligent Proximity Activation Start System), which means that no key is required to start the bike as long as the rider has the coded transponder with them—typically in a pocket.
The 1400GTR was available with an anti-lock braking system from the start (ABS). In 2010, Kawasaki introduced KTRC, a traction control system, and K-ACT (Kawasaki Advanced Coactive-braking Technology), an enhanced system with power-assisted brake force redistribution, to replace the prior ABS systems. K-ACT is also a combination braking system that applies the front and rear brakes in varying quantities depending on whether the front brake lever or rear brake pedal is engaged. The rider may control the amount of front braking force applied when the rear brake pedal is depressed by utilizing a handlebar switch. When the front and rear wheel speeds diverge, traction control employs the ABS sensors to reduce rear wheel speed by informing the engine management system to reduce power output.
