2004 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R Review

2004 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R

Open class sportbike, open call thrill.

For 2004, the ZX-12R’s power delivery is further improved with the addition of sub throttles to the fuel injection system, and new radial-mounted front disc brakes enhance braking feel.

For many experienced motorcyclists, the most satisfying ride day consists of having incredible horsepower on tap at any rpm and a stable, comfortable chassis for leaning into long, sweeping turns of a seldom-traveled mountain road. For these riders, only an open class sportbike can provide this thrill and contentment, and none do it better than Kawasaki’s flagship sportbike, the Ninja ZX-12R.
