Everything about the Ninja® ZX™-14R ABS supersport bike is big: big displacement, big horsepower, big accolades. Life is pretty good at the top of the heap, and its popularity doesn’t just come from the muscularity of its 1,441cc inline-four. The bike is as happy meandering two-up on a country road as it is screaming down the drag strip. The secret to this Ninja’s broad appeal comes from embracing technologies like ABS brakes and traction control that add more usability for a wide range of riders and riding styles. But yes, horsepower still has a lot to do with it, and that can be traced back through its 30 year lineage, from the original 1984 Kawasaki Ninja 900 that was similarly performance focused, right up to Tom Sykes’ World Superbike Championship-winning motorcycle.

Key Features

• One-of-a-kind 1,441cc inline-four engine is the most powerful motorcycle engine Kawasaki has ever produced, delivering the most power of any current production sportbike

• The ABS braking helps increase rider confidence in slippery conditions

• KTRC traction control system addresses varying riding conditions via three different modes controlled by a switch on the left handlebar

• Back-torque-limiting slipper clutch assembly helps control chassis disturbance from rear-wheel torque effects while downshifting

• High performance exhaust system features large-diameter tapered head pipes, a catalyzer and an efficient muffler assembly for low noise and emissions

• Aluminum monocoque frame is narrow, strong and rigid for impressive sport riding performance that complements the engine’s power

• Aluminum swingarm assembly is longer than traditional designs and incorporates strengthening gussets to withstand the engine’s substantial torque

• Supersport bodywork embraces the visual cues of Kawasaki siblings, includes a rear seat cowl and adds better air management for improved rider and passenger comfort

• Ten-spoke wheels reduce unsprung weight for better handling and maneuverability

• Radial-mount calipers feature individual pads for each piston, improving heat management

• Balanced, adjustable suspension settings front and rear for a comfortable ride without sacrificing performance

• Flagship finish quality with hidden bodywork fasteners

1,441cc Four-cylinder Liquid-cooled DOHC Engine

• Long-stroke design, ported cylinder heads, lightweight forged pistons, and aggressive camshaft profiles provide more torque and power throughout the rev range than any other production sportbike

• Piston jet system sprays a continuous stream of cooling lubrication to the underside of each piston for cooler running temperatures, more consistent power output and excellent long-term durability

• Strong cam chain and tensioning system offers excellent high-RPM durability

• Thick 40mm crankshaft main journals contribute to long-term engine durability

• Surface and heat treatments allow the transmission gears to better harness the engine’s prodigious power output

• Chrome composite-plated aluminum cylinder bores are lightweight, durable, and effectively transfer heat away from the combustion chamber and piston for maximum durability at high power outputs

High-flow Exhaust System

• Header assembly has tapered-diameter pipes for optimal engine response and power output

• The internal construction of the dual mufflers minimizes the impact of noise and emissions regulations, while maintaining impressive top-end power

• Airflow directed into the exhaust by the large secondary air ports in the cylinder head and head cover, plus a third honeycomb catalyzer in the exhaust collector, help meet strict Euro III emissions standards

Gear-driven Dual Engine Balancers

• Already in perfect primary balance, the ZX-14R’s engine design features dual secondary balancers that virtually eliminate unwanted vibrations for extremely smooth operation and reduced rider fatigue

Ram Air Induction

• Central ram air duct draws cooler, higher-pressure air from the face of the fairing and efficiently guides it through the large and efficient air cleaner and into the engine for maximum power output

Digital Fuel Injection

• DFI® throttle body assembly features individual 44mm throttle bodies fitted with an idle speed control and sub-throttle valves controlled by the 32-bit ECU. They provide precise response, smooth performance, automatic idle speed adjustment, and help the bike meet strict Euro III emissions requirements

• High performance intake tract porting optimizes flow characteristics

• Fuel injectors deliver lateral spray at a 20-degree angle to disperse the finely atomized (75-micron droplet size) fuel over a wide area

Dual-Mode Digital Ignition

• Rider selectable Full & Low power maps offer a choice between full power and approximately 75-percent power output to suit conditions

• Digital Timing Advance enhances low-range and mid-range power

• Individual spark plug-mounted ignition coils fire each of the four spark plugs independently to achieve the optimum timing for that cylinder

• ECU includes an idle speed control system for easier starting and warm-up

• ECO mode is available. This switches the ECU maps to the most economical setting, allowing the rider to extend the range between fill-ups

KTRC Traction Control

• KTRC Kawasaki Traction Control system features three different selectable modes to suit rider preference and different riding conditions

• Modes are selected by a handy switch assembly on the left handlebar

• Modes are indicated on the LCD cockpit display

Back-Torque Limiting “Slipper” Clutch

• Back-torque limiting “slipper” clutch assembly helps control rear-wheel torque effects while downshifting to minimize wheel hop

• Radial-pump hydraulic clutch master cylinder offers smooth and precise engagement and optimal feel at the lever

ABS Disc Brakes with Petal-type Rotors and Radial-mount Calipers

• ABS brakes offer excellent performance and enhanced confidence in adverse conditions

• Compact, lightweight ABS unit is highly effective without adding excessive weight

• Petal-type brake rotors provide better cooling and enhanced warp resistance than traditional discs

• Radial mounted four-piston front brake calipers offer greater rigidity than traditional caliper mounting to improve brake feel

• A separate brake pad is used for each piston. Individual pads provide increased cooling efficiency and can absorb more heat without deforming so they maintain a consistent brake feel longer

• Radial-pump front brake master cylinder provides excellent lever feel and feedback

Monocoque Aluminum Frame

• Lightweight monocoque frame is a hollow aluminum box that arches over the engine from the steering head to the swingarm pivot. It is narrow, strong, rigid and very light

• Many of the frame’s cast aluminum sections – steering head and swingarm pivot areas – are produced via a die-casting process for weight savings

• Rigidly mounted engine is a stressed frame member, which increases the frame’s torsional rigidity and saves weight versus traditional designs

• Engine is positioned forward in the frame, with the long wheelbase and front/rear weight balance carefully designed to achieve high-speed stability and responsive handling

• Long swingarm design helps maximize forward drive and is gusseted to better cope with the engine’s healthy torque output

• Massive head pipe casting contributes to frame rigidity

• Frame houses the air box and air filter in a space-saving design that simplifies air cleaner maintenance

• Battery is also housed within the frame and is easily accessible through an aluminum frame cover

Comfortable Sporting Suspension

• Inverted and multi-adjustable 43mm cartridge-type fork provides excellent wheel control and without sacrificing ride comfort

• Compression and rebound damping adjustment allows ultra-precise tuning of fork reactions

• Fully adjustable bottom-link Uni-Trak® rear suspension is a compact design that offers premium control and feedback

• Linkage rates designed to allow linear suspension action and excellent wheel control

• Bottom-link design helps create a lower center of gravity, which makes the motorcycle more nimble

Aggressive Supersport Bodywork

• Monocoque frame is positioned over the engine so the sleek fairing is uninterrupted by protruding frame spars, adding to the extremely long and low styling

• Efficient fairing venting offers excellent engine-heat control to help maintain rider and passenger comfort on hot days

• Standard rear-seat cowl adds aesthetic appeal

• Both the front and rear turn signals are integrated into the bodywork and have clear lenses for a modern appearance

• Quadruple projector beam headlights give the ZX-14R a distinctive look. The outer lights contain position lamps and high beams, while the low beams are located in the center lamps

• Lightweight Denso radiator with dual fans and high-density cores provides maximum cooling efficiency

Full Instrumentation

• Black-faced dual analog speedometer and tachometer are easy to read

• Multi-function LCD digital display includes an odometer, two trip meters, fuel gauge, gear position indicator, clock, traction-control and power mode information

• Programmable shift indicator lamp illuminates at pre-set rpm to signal rider upshift

• Controller Area Network (CAN) interface between the gauges uses fewer wires yet allows a greater volume of information, such as estimated fuel mileage, to be exchanged
