Bike of the day: Kawasaki ZZ-R1400
bikes for sale
When it was released in 2006, the Kawasaki ZZ-R1400 was the fastest and most powerful motorbike you could buy. Even 12 years on, its 197bhp would still win you a few rounds of Top Trumps.
As an ultra tourer, it was never going to be a flickable bike, at 215kg it’s far too heavy to be a dedicated track weapon, but for racking up miles around Europe it’s fantastic.

It can hit its limited 186mph top speed with a gear to spare and is smooth, predictable and sporty enough for the road.
