Kawasaki have updated their hyper-tourer – the 1400GTR – for 2010, with the bike getting KTRC, Kawasaki’s first-ever traction control system. There’s also the K-ACT II anti-lock braking system, a larger windscreen, mildly redesigned bodywork (for improved engine heat management), heated grips, a relocated glove box, slightly firmer suspension and new Bridgestone tyres for improved grip and handling.
The 2010 1400GTR has one more trick up its onboard computer - an 'Eco' mode, which alters power delivery in a way that allows the engine to cut fuel consumption by as much as 25%. With ABS and traction control, the new GTR is priced at US$15,300.
