C14
By Tim(Owner), Sep. 16, 2008
I've had mine for a year now. A practical comfortable touring bike that is also fun in the twisties. Looks are subjective but it appeals to me more than the competition. Excellent brakes, excellent handling, super excellent motor. It would be nice if heated grips were an option and a little less... Read Full Review

A Magic Carpet
By Cody Griffin(Owner), Sep. 15, 2008
I bought a new 2008 Concours14 in October of '08. In the past 11 months I have put 20,000 miles on this fine machine. Most of these miles have been on a variety of road trips touring distances of 1000 to 6000 miles.



The latest of these ventures took me across the plains to the Pacific Coast and... Read Full Review

...I purchased the new C14 one year ago, the second week of September 2007. Kawasaki's "Super Sport" touring machine has exceeded all my expectations and kept me a life time fan of their awesome machines! The torque, power and overall fit and trim of the machine has definitely put Kawasaki... Read Full Review

Talk about bang for the buck
By Bobby Moss(Owner), Jan. 7, 2009
I upgraded to the C14 in September of '07 and in my 9,000 miles of road-bending rides have not found one fault in the bike. I took advantage of the pre-wired connection for heated grips and have seen no need for further upgrades. The acceleration and handling are nothing short of amazing. A modern b...
