Product Description
Ultimate Performance from Kawasakis Flagship Superbike

The mission of Kawasakis flagship Ninja® ZX™-14 is not unlike that of an exotic supercar to project the awesome power and technology of its parent company in rapid fashion, every time the throttle is twisted. It may not cost a million dollars or have a V-12 engine, but the ZX-14s 1352cc fuel-injected inline-four is the closest thing on two wheels. Its monocoque chassis and wind-tunnel developed body represent the cutting edge of sportbike design. The ZX-14s systems are designed to allow riders to exploit the full potential of man and machine, while effortlessly dispatching all challengers.

Despite ever-tightening noise and emissions regulations; the ZX-14 has continued to set the pace of sportbike excellence ever since its domineering debut. Intake and exhaust systems permit it to comply with strict emissions and noise regulations, even as its massive low-end torque, mid-range thrust and legendary Ninja peak power place it at the top of the sportbike food chain.

Secondary air ports in the cylinder head and its cover flow clean air into the exhaust system and boost the efficiency of the three honeycomb catalyzers employed in the exhaust system. These devices, combined with a wide dispersal of atomized fuel from the fine-atomizing fuel injectors and optimized flow characteristics through the intakes, allow the ZX-14s 1352cc engine to offer strong performance, yet still meet the toughest motorcycle emissions regulations.

In lieu of a more-restrictive exhaust system, the ZX-14 meets noise standards by producing minimal internal mechanical noise. A special piston profile and a urethane insulation sheet on the inside of the magnesium chain cover help quiet the engine and permit a freer flowing exhaust for greater power.

The ZX-14s chassis design is every bit the equal of its power plant. Using an advanced version of Kawasakis unique aluminum monocoque design, its frame is lightweight and very strong. Die cast aluminum sections on the main frame make for lighter parts, keeping the weight down even more on the slim and compact frame.

The narrow engine, monocoque frame, and fuel tank provide a slim rider interface and a relaxed sport riding position. It is compact without being cramped, with its easy-to-reach bar position, low-set footpegs for ample legroom and a low seat height and narrow seat front to easily plant both feet on the ground when stopped. Comfort levels are high enough to cause riders to think theyre on a dedicated sport tourer until the ZX-14s throttle is twisted. When that happens, all confusion disappears, like so many competitors in the rear view mirrors.

Uninterrupted fairing lines give the ZX-14 a smooth, flowing appearance from front to rear, due in part to the monocoque frame, which goes over the engine and doesnt protrude through the cowling. Quadruple projector beam headlights adorn the ZX-14s front fairing, immediately beneath its menacing ram air intake duct. The turn signals are cleanly integrated into the fairing and rear cowl, with a unique V design LED tail lamp capping off a sleek, aerodynamic package that reinforces Kawasakis aircraft heritage.

The Ninja ZX-14s blend of power, handling and style perfectly illustrates the potent technological know-how of Kawasakis highly-trained engineers.

Warranty: 12 months
1,352CC Four-Cylinder, DOHC EngineTuned to provide smooth power across a very wide rev range, while producing impressive horsepower numbers
Chrome composite plated aluminum cylinder bores are lightweight, durable, and quickly carry heat away from the combustion chamber and piston for supreme durability at high power outputs
Carefully planned engine design is compact and narrow
Low mechanical noise via special piston profile and urethane insulation sheet on the inside of the magnesium chain cover
ExhaustAirflow into the exhaust from the large secondary air ports in the cylinder head and head cover, plus a third honeycomb catalyzer in the collector help meet strict Euro III emissions standards
Internal silencer construction minimizes impact of emissions regulations while maintaining impressive top-end power
Exhaust connecting tube entrances are designed to enhance low rpm torque characteristics
Gear-Driven Dual Engine BalancersAlready in perfect primary balance, dual secondary balancers virtually eliminate unwanted vibrations for extremely smooth engine operation and reduced rider fatigue
Ram Air InductionCentral ram air duct draws the cooler, higher-pressure air from the face of the fairing and efficiently guides it through the air cleaner and into the engine for maximum power output
Digital Fuel Injection44mm Mikuni throttle bodies are fitted with sub-throttle valves, controlled by the ECU to provide precise response, make DFI® performance smoother, and help meet Euro III emission requirements
Intake porting optimizes flow characteristics
Injectors deliver lateral spray at a 20 degree angle to disperse the finely-atomized fuel over a wider area
Fine-atomizing injectors produce 75m droplet size
32-bit ECU works with dual throttle valve system to further enhance throttle response and control
Digital IgnitionDigital Timing Advance enhances low-and mid-range power
Individual spark plug-mounted ignition coils fire each of the four sparkplugs independently to achieve the optimum timing for that cylinder at that instant
ECU includes an idle speed control system for easier starting and warm-up
Radial Pump Clutch Master CylinderHydraulic clutch features a radial-pump clutch master cylinder for smooth and precise clutch engagement and feel
Next-Generation Monocoque Aluminum FrameLightweight, monocoque frame is a hollow aluminum box that arches over the engine from the steering head to the swing arm pivot. It is narrow, strong, rigid and very light
Frames cast aluminum sections
steering head and swing arm pivot areas are produced with a die casting process for further weight savings
Rigidly mounted engine is a stressed frame member, which increases the frames torsional rigidity and saves approximately four pounds
Engine positioned forward in the frame, with the wheelbase and front/rear weight balance carefully designed to achieve high-speed stability and responsive handling
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 has simple access through the back side of the frame
SuspensionInverted 43mm cartridge type front fork utilizes damping rates that offer stiff initial action to resist front-end dive when braking
Stepless damping adjustment improves suspension performance
Excellent control and feedback from fully adjustable bottom-link UNI-TRAK® rear suspension
Linkage rates provide linear suspension action
Bottom-link design helps create a lower center of gravity, which makes the motorcycle more nimble
Wheel rim center ribs are slightly offset so tire balance weights can be located precisely along the wheels centerline
Radial Mounted Petal Front Disc BrakesRadial 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
Petal design brake discs provide better cooling and warp resistance
Radial-pump front brake master cylinder improves brake performance and lever feel
Wind Tunnel-Designed BodyworkMonocoque frame goes over the engine so the sleek fairing is uninterrupted by protruding frame spars, adding to the extremely long and low styling
