A BIKE THAT DOES IT ALL
Kawasaki ZX14R is one hell of a machine. The way it corners. Power from the engine is enormous. The handling is unreal. Top speed is phenomenal and how fast it gets there. Very comfortable to ride. Irons out the bumps and potholes on the road very well. It is more like a touring bike than a super bike. It is definitely a keeper.
2013 ZX14R, w' Pwr Cmdr & 4-2-1 Muzzy (193@9 rwhp) purchased from Crazy Dogs MC Qld. Just sold a '12 BMW S1000RR. Similar HP & electronics - very different bike. First time I tested a 1st gen model I was surprised at how maneuverable it was moving it around by hand & at walking pace. At 3rd gear you can just keep it below 60 & it will hold you there all day. The bike is a gentleman & very economical. Claims of over 350km/tank are not exaggerated with mixed riding.
It is not as tight as a 600 or 1000 on 35km posted corners. It is however very stable & confidence inspiring on faster roads. Yet to do it but potentially great sports tourer & you can commute but pull in your side mirrors. They are the best I've owned but a little wider than the beepers. In all I plan to keep this bike for 100,000, this will last longer than my last marriage, can almost guarantee it. Buy one!
Huge tractable power, economical, stable with correct tyre psi & setup, huge road presence, very comfortable, very well engineered
Not ideal for really tight roads, needs correct psi in tyres, no factory touring options (did they think it was only going to be customized &/or drag raced???) high depreciation so a bargain for 2nd owners
What a machine......
There are lawnmowers and there is the zx14r.....accelerate, brakes ,handles, rides like the Bentley of the motorbike Kingdom. It is a great machine that ask "can I risk your licence nows?" Bad girl, bad girl...... ow Ok just on this corner ,and now straight.....and maybe this next corner and.......!!!!
Don't leave home without it!!!
A great all round bike that does everything we'll
A little heavy but you get used to it.
