NINJA ZX-14R - KING OF ALL SPORTS BIKES
The Ninja ZX-14R’s ultra-powerful 1441cm³ inline four-cylinder engine puts it in a class all its own. Add in our most advanced electronics system, including traction control, ABS and power mode selection and with an innovative monocoque frame, and stunning bodywork, and the ZX-14R is a phenomenon that you must experience to believe.
The 2017 Ninja ZX-14R Special Edition (Brembo Öhlins) is the flagship model with many extra features; Brembo Radial Pump Front Brake Master Cylinder, Radial Mount Brembo M50 Calipers and 310 mm Brembo Discs with a Öhlins TTX39 Rear Shock Absorber, Golden Blazed Green & Metallic Spark Black paint, drilled green fork caps, drilled billet grey alumite steering nut and stainless steel rings on the dash meters which feature new dot pattern meter faces and two available background colours for the LCD Screen (black or white) can be selected according to rider preference.

The Ninja H2, Ninja ZX-14R and Ninja ZX-10R – Kawasaki’s top-of-the-line flagship supersport models – all offer high levels of riding excitement. But where the Ninja ZX-14R stands apart is for its great flexibility.
Compared to the very focused concepts of the Ninja H2 and Ninja ZX-10R, the Ninja ZX-14R’s engine and chassis tuning both contribute to a package that delivers high performance while being easy to ride.
So while it has the power to throw down blistering 1/4-mile times, and the agility to hustle through a series of curves in the hills, the Ninja ZX-14R is also comfortable enough to accommodate long distance touring, and mild-mannered enough that you wouldn’t think twice about jumping on and riding it down to the corner store.
This balance of Extreme Excitement and Everyday Versatility – something it holds in common with other legendary models in its lineage (like the GPz900R and ZZR1100) – combined with a number of new prestige features that elevate both its performance and its presence, is what makes this model almighty, and why it will continue to be called the King of All Sport Bikes.
RAM AIR INDUCTION
A central Ram Air duct feeds cool, high-pressure air from the front of the fairing in a direct path through the air cleaner and into the engine for maximum power output - as speed increases, so does the air pressure, effectively force-feeding the engine.
Sculpted by the wind, the Ninja ZX-14R's bodywork offers high aerodynamic performance that reduces drag, and contributes to stability and wind protection at highway speeds.
Spring rates for the front fork and rear suspension where chosen to deliver a firm, sporty feel. Settings are such that the majority of the suspension action takes place higher in the stroke (rather than closer to the bottom of the stroke with the suspension almost fully compressed). The result is that absorption and road holding performance are both excellent, contributing to both a sporty handing character and high speed stability.
LED TAIL LIGHT
Aggressive, larger-volume tail features an LED taillight and integrated rear turn signals.
When viewed from the rear, the tail cowl, rear tyre and twin silencers have good visual and spatial balance. Large-volume silencers contribute to the dramatic impact of the rear. Their pentagonal design enables the requisite silencer volume while enabling a deep bank angle.
BACK-TORQUE LIMITER CLUTCH
Easily adjustable back-torque limiting clutch facilitates smooth downshifts and helps prevent rear wheel hop, which becomes more likely with the increased back-torque. In addition to assisting with control, the back-torque limiter also helps protect the drivetrain.
BREMBO M50 MONOBLOC CALIPERS
Dual radial-mounted M50 Bembo cast aluminium monbloc calipers grip the front disc. A a pair of massive ø310 mm Brembo semi-floating discs with a thickness of t5.5 mm deliver superb braking force. The stainless steel rotors offer high rigidity and contribute to excellent brake feel. Grooves running down the centre of the outer edge of the discs increase their surface area for greater heat dissipation.
BREMBO RADIAL PUMP MASTER CYLINDER
Brembo radial-pump master cylinder and reservoir receive extra attention before being shipped to Kawasaki. Each part is examined and adjusted to eliminate any ineffective (idle) stroke. Completing the front brake system, stainless-steel braided lines are used to ensure more direct transfer of hydraulic fluid.
ADVANCE ELECTRONIC RIDING AIDS
While the Ninja ZX-14R’s mighty engine performance was intended to be experienced unfiltered, riders may elect to take advantage of the some of the advanced electronic riding aids provided to suit riding conditions or preference.
Standard Equipment on the Ninja ZX-14R:
3 MODE KTRC (KAWASAKI TRACTION CONTROL)
Three modes cover a range of riding conditions, offering either enhanced sport riding performance or the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence.
Riders can choose from three modes. Modes 1 and 2 prioritise maximum forward acceleration. Mode 3 provides rider reassurance by facilitating smooth riding on slippery surfaces. Riders may also elect to turn the system off.
By default, KTRC is always ON when the engine is started. (The mode will be the same as when the engine was turned off, or in Mode 1 if the system had been turned off.) To ride with KTRC off, riders must consciously turn the system OFF (using the mode button on the left grip)
POWER MODE SELECTION
A choice of Full Power or Low Power modes allows riders to set power delivery to suit preference and conditions. Low Power mode limits output to approximately 75% of Full Power and uses a milder throttle response. (Reduction of both power and throttle response varies according to engine speed (rpm), throttle position and gear position.)
Combining the various KTRC and Power Mode options, riders have eight combinations from which to choose. For example, an experienced rider on dry pavement might choose Full Power and KTRC Mode 1 for sport riding. On a wet and/or slippery road surface, Low Power and KTRC Mode 3 might be selected. Each system can be set independently to best suit rider skill/preference, riding location and road conditions.
OHLINS REAR SUSPENSION TTX39 SHOCK ASORBER
Enhancing the already mighty performance the Ninja ZX-14R Brembo Öhlins Special Edition features a TTX39 rear shock. Working together with Öhlins, a top-of-the-line TTX rear suspension unit was developed especially for this model. Renowned for its quality and high performance, the Öhlins shock is an excellent complement to the capabilities of Kawasaki's flagship model.
