Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14
The ZZR1400, also known as the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 and ZX-14R (2006-2020), is a motorbike in Kawasaki‘s Ninja sport bike series that was the company’s most powerful sport bike in 2006. It debuted at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show and was presented as a successor for the Kawasaki ZZ-R1200 for the 2006 model year (2002-2005). The ZZR1400 can go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. As a consequence of an agreement between the main Japanese and European motorcycle manufacturers, the peak speed is electronically regulated to 186 mph (299 km/h).
In October 30, 2006, the motorbike appeared on Season 10 of Fifth Gear.
In its October 10, 2006 edition, Motorcycle USA road tested the bike and published the following stock results:
- 1.713 seconds for 60 feet
- 4.349 seconds for 330 feet
- 1/8 mile: 6.447 seconds at 117.39 mph
- 1/4 mile time: 9.783 seconds, speed: 147.04 mph
In 2008, there was a small upgrade. With the release of the 2012 ZX-14R, a second-generation model with the R designation was introduced. This includes an increase in displacement to provide more horsepower, as well as two variable power modes, Kawasaki traction control, and an ignition-management system borrowed from the ZX-10R. It got aesthetic modifications, incremental chassis upgrades, suspension revisions, and the addition of a slipper clutch for the first time. The new engine included polished cylinder heads and cams with higher lift and duration. Pistons were lighter and had more compression, and they were cooled by a new oil jet system. The connecting rods and crankshaft were reinforced, as were the tensioner and cam chain, and the transmission’s surface gears were heat-treated.
They installed a second radiator fan in order to make the motorbike operate cooler and hence more robust. Larger head pipes and mufflers, along with a less restrictive air filter, increased responsiveness. Rickey Gadson’s quarter mile time of 9.64 seconds at 149.83 mph on a bone-stock bike on a 50-degree morning at an altitude of 2100 feet was recorded by a motorcyclist. Cycle World set a quarter-mile mark of 9.47 seconds (corrected) at 152.83 mph, and reached 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds.
