The ZX-12R is a sport bike that was made from 2000 to 2006 by Kawasaki. It was known as a contender to be the fastest production motorcycle, and for its role in bringing to a truce the escalating competition to build a faster motorcycle.
Before the introduction of the 14 (ZZR1400), the was Kawasaki's flagship sport bike and a competitor to the Suzuki Hayabusa. The was a fuel injected (four 46 mm throttle bodies) 1,199 cc hyper sport , generating around 161.2 horsepower (120.2 kW) at the rear wheel. Handling and braking match the power of the engine resulting in a motorcycle that was docile at low speeds and very easy to handle in heavy traffic, but has strong acceleration and a top speed limited to 186 miles per hour (300 km/h) by a motorcycle manufacturer gentlemen's agreement.
Pre-production models of the revealed a that was indeed faster and more powerful than Suzuki's Hayabusa. Several notable publications tested the pre-production and found it to be superior to the in terms of straight-line performance. In Japan, pre-production tests revealed a top speed near 200 mph. However, the release of the proved to be somewhat of a disappointment, as the production version of the was delayed for weeks without notice. Many in the industry reported that European governments had threatened to ban the altogether due to its top speed and outlandish acceleration. These threats were apparently taken seriously, and released the bike with a slightly de-tuned engine[ which failed to knock that from its throne (in terms of top speed and acceleration tests). Starting with 2001 models, speed limiters were included to reduce the R's top speed to 186 miles per hour (300 km/h). This was because governments mainly in Europe were concerned with the ongoing pursuit among Japanese manufacturers of ever higher maximum speeds, which were seen as a powerful marketing tool in most markets around the world.
The was discontinued in 2006. While not nearly as popular in terms of sales as the enjoys a strong following among its riders and fans. Many sport bike magazines praised the for its overall sportbike performance.
