2008 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 vs Suzuki Hayabusa - MotoUSA
Ladies and gentlemen, may we have your attention ringside please.
MotorcycleUSA.com is proud to present, for your adrenaline-pulsing
entertainment, a comparo of felonious extraordinariousness! A merciless
exhibition of titanic magnificence! A heavyweight bout of such gravity,
such weight, it can only be described as the greatest two-wheeled
extravaganza of all time! Two masters of the dojo from the land of Tojo...
The biggest show outta Tokyo! A bitter duel between monster mounts mightier
than the majestic massiveness of the Pacific Ocean they cross - the 2008
Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 and the Suzuki GSX-R1300 Hayabusa!
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.

2007 Kawasaki ZX-14 Walkaround - Yoshimura Carbon Exhaust
Just like my first walkaround, this video isn't anything amazing, just
something for me to drool over when I'm away from the bike. It also gives
you a good idea of the look and sound of the new Exhaust; pictures don't give you the whole
experience. The Exhaust in this video
is a Yoshimura TRC Carbon Fiber slip-on (dual), and the fender eliminator
w/LEDs is something I rigged up myself. The Exhaust is definitely on the quiet side for an
aftermarket system, but has a deep, smooth sound to it. Huge improvement
from stock AND it doesn't wake the neighbors!
You can see my other video of when it was bone stock for comparison:
