Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • Gets a comfortable riding position
    • Offers a potent engine
    • The seat has good cushioning
  • Could be Better

    • Can be a task riding in the city
    • Could do with an updated electronics package
    • Limited service reach

BikeWale's Take

The ZX-14R is Kawasaki’s answer to the Suzuki Hayabusa. The motorcycle offers a well cushioned seat and comfortable riding position that makes it good for high-speed long distance touring. However, the ZX-14R’s size and weight would make it a task to ride in the city. Furthermore, the instrument cluster is now dated and the bike could do better with an updated electronics package.
