2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14

For more than 40 years, Kawasaki has shocked and awed the motorcycle world with its big-bore streetbikes. From the arm-stretching 500cc H1 of 1969 to the legendary 903cc Z-1 of 1973, and from the high-tech Ninja® ZX™-10s and -11s of the ’80s and ’90s to the sublime ZX-12s and -14s of the new millennium, Team Green™ has continuously kicked butt and taken names in the large-displacement sportbike category.



 

2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 motorcycle model Features

Key Features

• 1,352cc inline-four with DFI® provides smooth power while producing impressive amounts of horsepower
• Lightweight aluminum monocoque frame is narrow, strong and rigid
• Radial-mounted front brake calipers and radial-pump front brake master cylinder combine for superior braking power and control
• Six-speed transmission
• Fully adjustable suspension allows for excellent control and feedback
• Hydraulic clutch offers precise clutch engagement and optimal feel
• Natural yet aggressive ergonomics
• Multi-function LCD instrumentation offers a wealth of information and is easy to read
• Standard rear seat cowl adds to bike’s aerodynamic styling

1,352cc Four-cylinder, DOHC Engine

• Tuned to provide smooth power across a very wide rev range while producing impressive horsepower numbers
• Chrome composite-plated aluminum cylinder bores are lightweight, durable, and quickly carry heat away from the combustion chamber and piston for supreme durability at high power outputs
• Carefully designed engine is compact and narrow
• Low mechanical noise via special piston profile and urethane insulation sheet on the inside of the magnesium chain cover

High-flow Exhaust System

• Airflow into the exhaust from the large secondary air ports in the cylinder head and head cover, plus a third honeycomb catalyzer in the collector, help meet strict Euro III emissions standards
• Internal silencer construction minimizes impact of emissions regulations while maintaining impressive top-end power
• Exhaust connecting tube entrances are designed to enhance low-rpm response

Gear-driven Dual Engine Balancers

• Already in perfect primary balance, the engine features dual secondary balancers that virtually eliminate unwanted vibrations for extremely smooth operation and reduced rider fatigue

Ram Air Induction

• Central ram air duct draws cooler, higher-pressure air from the face of the fairing and efficiently guides it through the air cleaner and into the engine for maximum power output

Digital Fuel Injection

• 44mm Mikuni throttle bodies are fitted with sub-throttle valves controlled by the ECU to provide precise response, smooth DFI performance and help meet Euro III emissions requirements
• Intake porting optimizes flow characteristics
• Injectors deliver lateral spray at a 20-degree angle to disperse the finely atomized fuel over a wide area
• Fine-atomizing injectors produce a 75micron droplet size
• 32-bit ECU works with dual throttle valve system to further enhance throttle response and control

Digital Ignition

• Digital Timing Advance enhances low
• and mid-range power
• Individual spark plug-mounted ignition coils fire each of the four spark plugs independently to achieve the optimum timing for that cylinder
• ECU includes an idle speed control system for easier starting and warm-up

Radial Pump Clutch Master Cylinder

• Hydraulic clutch features a radial-pump clutch master cylinder for smooth and precise clutch engagement and optimal feel

Next-generation Monocoque Aluminum Frame

• Lightweight monocoque frame is a hollow aluminum box that arches over the engine from the steering head to the swingarm pivot. It is narrow, strong, rigid and very light
• Frame’s cast aluminum sections – steering head and swingarm pivot areas – are produced via a die-casting process for weight savings
• Rigidly mounted engine is a stressed frame member, which increases the frame’s torsional rigidity and saves approximately four pounds
• Engine is positioned forward in the frame, with the wheelbase and front/rear weight balance carefully designed to achieve high-speed stability and responsive handling
• Massive head pipe casting contributes to frame rigidity
• Frame houses the air box and air filter in a space-saving design that simplifies air cleaner maintenance
• Battery is also housed within the frame and is easily accessible through the back side of the frame

Suspension

• Inverted 43mm cartridge-type front fork utilizes damping rates that offer firm initial action to resist front-end dive when braking
• Stepless damping adjustment improves suspension performance
• Excellent control and feedback from fully adjustable bottom-link Uni-Trak® rear suspension
• Linkage rates allow linear suspension action
• Bottom-link design helps create a lower center of gravity, which makes the motorcycle more nimble
• Wheel rim center ribs are slightly offset so tire balance weights can be located precisely along the wheel’s centerline

Radial-mount Calipers and Petal-type Discs

• Radial mounted four-piston front brake calipers offer greater rigidity than traditional caliper mounting to improve brake feel
• A separate brake pad is used for each piston. Individual pads provide increased cooling efficiency and can absorb more heat without deforming so they maintain a consistent brake feel longer
• Petal-type design brake discs provide better cooling and warp resistance
• Radial-pump front brake master cylinder improves brake performance and lever feel

Wind Tunnel-designed Bodywork

• Monocoque frame is positioned over the engine so the sleek fairing is uninterrupted by protruding frame spars, adding to the extremely long and low styling
• Both the front and rear turn signals are integrated into the bodywork and have clear lenses to enhance appearance
• Quadruple projector beam headlights give the ZX-14 a distinctive front fairing. The outer lights contain position lamps and high beams, while the low beams are located in the center lamps
• Lightweight Denso radiator with high-density cores provides maximum cooling efficiency

Full Instrumentation

• White faced dual analog speedometer and tachometer are easy to read
• Multi-function LCD digital display includes an odometer, two trip meters, fuel gauge, gear position indicator and clock
• Programmable shift indicator lamp illuminates at pre-set rpm to signal rider upshift
• Programmable clutch engagement lamp illuminates at pre-set rpm to signal the rider to engage the clutch
• Controller Area Network (CAN) interface between the gauges uses fewer wires yet allows a greater volume of information, such as estimated fuel mileage, to be exchanged
