2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features


•Incredibly powerful inline four-cylinder, 1,441cc engine

KTRC Traction Control with 3 modes for ideal traction

Back-Torque limiting slipper clutch reduces rear-wheel hop during downshifts

Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®) delivers the perfect amount of fuel for optimal performance





• Lightweight monocoque aluminum frame designed for stability

• Inverted 43mm cartridge-type fork with stepless damping adjustment

• Wind-tunnel-tested aerodynamic bodywork and responsive handling


2016 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Dominant Performance




4 mm longer stroke increases displacement of the powerful In-Line Four engine to 1,441 cm³. Bore and Stroke are now 84 x 65 mm.

Compared to its predecessor, this engine offers more torque at all rpm, and substantially more power in the mid-high range. Acceleration from 4,000 rpm and up is notably stronger. Torque is strong enough to pull away from lights in almost any gear: at 2,000 rpm there is 9.5 kgf.m of torque available! And this figure jumps significantly from 3,000 rpm.

Attention to Details

Sculpted design of the upper triple clamp complements the high-quality image of the cockpit area. On the special graphics edition, the upper triple clamp features contrasting sections: painted finish vs. hairline finish with a clear coat.

Strongest production motorcycle



Designed to settle the issue of supremacy in the flagship class once and for all, the ZZR1400’s new engine boasts an increased displacement and thorough engine tuning to deliver heady levels of power and unrivalled acceleration. The step up in performance over its predecessor is readily apparent, with more available torque across the rev range and substantially higher upper-end power. And with the notably stronger acceleration, twisting the throttle past 4,000 rpm may result in a sensation not entirely unlike that experienced by astronauts breaking free from the Earth’s gravitational pull.

Increased Carrying Convenience

The ZZR features retractable luggage hooks that tuck in neatly at the rear of the front seat. These are complemented by two hooks on the passenger tail grip. Idealised hook placement (not too close together) enables large-sized items to be securely attached to the rear seat.
