It's official! The new Kawasaki ZZR1400 is the fastest accelerating bike we've ever tested and has kicked the legendary Suzuki Hayabusa in to touch.

The big Kawasaki goes from standstill to 180mph in under 20 seconds and from 0-90 in under five - that's quicker than most decent sports cars can get to 60mph. As you'd expect, the big, green meanie is astonishingly powerful, too, logging a true 196bhp at the back wheel in our dyno test.
