Okay, so our Don King impersonation is third-rate, at best, but the ZX-14
and Hayabusa are the epitome of two-wheeled heavyweight brawlers. Sure,
pound for pound, the 1000cc Superbikes may be the ultimate in production
two-wheeled performance, but these two are the bad boys, the big cheese,
the meanest monkeys in the sportbike jungle.

WRR24: Riding the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14r
This will probably remain as one of the fastest bikes ridden for Weekly
Rides with Reuben for some time... With close to 200hp at the rear wheel,
the ZX-14r accelerates with a force unlike no other. It really is like
having a rocket propel you, and propel you, and propel you... it just keeps
going until you back off. Please be sure to rate, comment, and subscribe,

Kawasaki ZX-14 ZX1400
Kawasaki, and Zettozettoarl) manufactures by Kawasaki Heavy Industries in
2006, and is a large-scale automatic ..ZZR1400 (.. two-wheeled vehicle of
the ZZR series of four strokes 1352cc (motorcycle) for the export market
that sells it. The North America specification is named ZX-14.
It is a model that becomes the succession of ZZR1200 and ZX-12R. It was
developed aiming at a car at the velocity of the world on the market as
well as ZZR1100 and ZX-12R that took the strongest name. It is classified
from there is ABS specification car while ZX-12R's introducing oneself
highest super-sports in the 20th century and having appeared, too into
mega-sports with the sea bass and the GSX1300R falcon, etc. in a Japanese
market. It is classified into super-sports in the North America market.
Four 1352cc water-cooled parallel cylinder engine is installed in a newly
developed monocoque frame. The first restyling in the expression is done
for 08 years and three Euro restrictions are clear. The power-up was done
to 180ps→190ps as for a Malaysian specification that max power was
reimported now and circulated to 190ps→193ps chiefly in Japan in North
America and a European specification, too. Moreover, the setting has been
reviewed for 08 years in the expression though it was an engine output
characteristic with a slow response to open times of the accelerator of the
low rotation. All with catalyst. Output 203ps when the ram air of the
expression vehicle for 08 years is pressurized is a background of the
development that is the highest output in the motorcycle being marketed
Kawasaki turns on ZX-12R to recapture the seat of the velocity machine lost
by the appearance of HONDA CBR1100XX super-blackbird and sea bass GSX1300R
falcon in 2000. ZZR prepares ZZR1200 that changes the route to Zarah
inclined to it according to restyling, and takes the system of two the top.
However, the speed limiter of 300 km/h restriction is standardized
worldwide than 2001, and the significance of existence of No.1 in the
velocity machine category has been lost. Moreover, there was the one with
loud voice to request a legitimate succession model of ZZR1100 to make an
overwhelming performance united to a comfortable high-speed cruise.
Haispedotsarar and ZZR1400 of combatted form that threw away the mildness
of the strongest spec in the world and ZZR1200 to answer this in 2006 are
put on the market.
There is a user who feels the getting on easiness in low speed and the low
rotation not have power, too. It seems that engine with a difficult
treatment and "Difficult machine" a little an initial type of ZX-12R also
influence. The engine characteristic of the GP machine heirloom to which
the engine brake doesn't hang so much makes the high rotation keep gentler
in the user who uses the power band regularly.
