200bhp in a motorcycle is truly liberating. It opens up your mind and broadens your horizons. Yes, we LOVE the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R!

Until the new, supercharged Kawasaki H2 takes away the Ninja ZX-14R’s crown later in the year, the latter is still the world’s fastest production streetbike. With a 1441cc inline-four and about 200bhp raging inside its admittedly bulbous bodywork, the 14R is the bike to have if you like hitting 300km/h on your daily commute. And for 2015, Kawasaki have two new colour schemes for the ZX-14R – green, with black highlights, and matt carbon gray, with green highlights. There’s also ABS, 3-mode traction control, two power modes, a monocoque chassis and high-spec fully adjustable suspension.

Here’s a riding impression of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R
