The 2015 Kawasaki ZX-14R remains the fastest production motorcycle on the planet and now gets a red and gray paintjob that's reminiscent of the 1980s GPZ900R. Perfect!
Kawasaki have announced a limited edition 30th Anniversary ZX-14R Ninja, only 300 units of which will be produced. The bike's red-and-gray paintjob is based on the one used on the 1984 GPZ900R and the 14 also gets gold pinstriping, gold-painted brake calipers and 30th Anniversary badges on the fairing. The bike is only available in the US and in Latin American markets.
With its 1441cc inline-four that pumps out 200 horsepower, the Kawasaki ZX-14R remains out most favourite superbike in the world. As before, the Limited Edition ZX-14R gets a three-level traction control system, high and low power modes, slipper clutch and ABS as standard. The big Ninja's unique monocoque chassis and fully adjustable suspension (43mm USD fork at the front, aluminium swingarm and monoshock at the rear) provide excellent handing characteristics, which go very well with the engine's brain-numbing power output. And with ergonomics perfectly suited to all-day flat-out-fast riding, this is one motorcycle that lets you enjoy stratospheric levels of performance, without destroying your wrists and/or back.
The 2015 Kawasaki ZX-14R is priced at US$15,899 and we believe this is one motorcycle that's worth every single penny of its price. If only we could rush out and buy one right now.
