New Kawasaki ZZR1400 first ride

Kawasaki’s new ZZR1400 has astonished American testers with its performance and refinement – the overhauled hyperbike clocked a 9.64 second standing quarter mile at its American launch in Las Vegas, Nevada. The European version will be launched in January, though Kawasaki cannot confirm how the specifications will differ.

ZX 14R

The new 14 looks to be a great ultra tourer & drag bike...it will do until Suzuki makes a gen3 Hayabusa..let it be sooner then later Suzuki... good job Kawasaki...

Why the hell not!

Its not really my thing at the mo. but it definitely makes me ponder the idea of owning one or something similar in the not too distant future might be pretty cool.

Plus ever tightening legislation will undoubtedly mean this type of bike will become extinct one day so get on an build them quick!

I will also be VERY interested to what Suzuki do with the Hayabusa next year in answer!!!

ZZR 14....... and its gone

There wasn't too much wrong with the last model of this behemoth of a bike.The eyes have been messed about with(big mistake):shock:,and the fairing vents now actually look cool instead of an afterthought.:sunglasses: The biggest error has to be the exhausts.......:wacko:Jeez,i know they're shit hot on co2 emissions and noise,but come on futuristic bazookas stuck to either side of this fascinating machine!!? Whatever,i hope Kawasaki don't give up on this machine just yet,as it would be a pity to see these animals(Hayabusa included)die out like the dinosaurs.

erm....

Jjust a couple of points... Bin the pipes and replace with a lighter system, up to 35 pounds can be shaved, add a trip to the nearest Power Commander/Dyno approved rolling road specialist, fit a race filter, T.R.E. and hey presto. The perfect Bike. Oh and Dinosours were around for an unbelievably longer period of time than us so don't Knock them.

What the World NEEDS

is Honda to get back into the hyper-sport game with a new Super Blackbird. A V-5 with 220-225 HP at the crank (so about 200 HP at the rear wheel) would be adequate.
