2013 KAWASAKI ZX14000FDFAL - - $12,999
The Kawasaki Ninja ZX014R is one of the most desired sportbikes in the industry. This two-wheel beast made its debut last year and in 2013 continues to keep the standards high when it comes to speed, agility and state of the art technologies.
The motorcycle was built around a 1,441cc inline-four, liquid cooled, DOHC, engine that puts out more power than any other production sportbike on the planet. The engine is mated on a six-speed transmission and you also get a KTRC traction-control system that features three different selectable modes. Each mode can be easily selected using a convenient switch mounted on the left handlebar.
To offer a perfect balance, the engine is positioned forward in the frame, a position that improves the motorcycles stability at high speeds.
Superlative Performance: the Quickest and Strongest Sportbike in the World!
The massively more powerful, R-designated, Ninja ZX-14R made its debut last year as an almost entirely new motorcycle. It remains on-top for 2013, reigning as the undisputed king of the sportbike world. New optional ABS brakes complement its amazing comfort and usability on the street, and help increase its appeal to a wide range of riders. It has to be tough competing against a machine like the ZX-14R, year after year, and continuous refinements have kept it several steps ahead of the sportbike competition, all while filling enthusiasts face shields with wild, ear-to-ear grins.
The ZX-14R packs a 1,441cc inline-four that produces significantly more power than any other production sportbike on the planet! Big power delivered smoothly has always been a big Ninja hallmark, so surface-milled combustion chamber shapes and polished intake ports provide maximum flow while working in concert the rest of the induction system. This ultimate Ninja really does come ported straight from the factory.
High-lift camshafts are operated by a high-performance cam chain and tensioner system to help ensure high-rpm reliability. Lightweight forged pistons also help durability and are cooled by an oil-jet cooling system that pumps a continuous stream of lubricant at the underside of each piston. (Testing shows the engine runs considerably cooler with this race-spec system.) The impressive durability built into this high-compression powerhouse continues with its super-strong alloy connecting rods have beefy small ends; it also uses thick 40mm crankshaft main journals; and its transmission gears are heat- and surface-treated for smooth shifting and a long service life.
Feeding this class dominating engine is a large, high-flow, air-cleaner element that helps prevent debris ingestion without restricting performance, and a Digital Fuel Injection (DFI) system that offers automatic idle adjustment and helps reduce emissions. Exhaust exits through a high-performance system with large-diameter tapered header pipes and large-volume mufflers, each with an advanced catalyzer to minimize emissions.
The benefits of all this hot-rodding are substantial, as theres class leading power virtually everywhere across the rev range. The advantages are most profound in the mid-high rpm range, but incredible acceleration is still available from as low as 4,000 rpm. This translates into the sort of thrust riders can appreciate in a wide variety of situations, whether its powering up a freeway on-ramp to merge with fast-moving traffic or cruising along a deserted backroad on a sunny, Sunday-morning ride. On the ZX-14R, total domination is just a twist of the throttle away.
The Ninja ZX-14Rs engine is more than supremely powerful; theres also plenty of polish and refined manners to go along with it. The engines dual gear-driven counterbalancer setup has been optimized to work with the mills heavy-duty crankshaft and long-stroke dimensions. The end result is smooth power across the entire rev range.
Beyond just being impressively strong, the engines manners are also effectively managed by a combination of its back-torque limiting slipper clutch assembly, a three-mode KTRC traction control system and a two-mode Hi/Low power selector system. The first two KTRC modes are intended to maximize acceleration similar to the ZX-10Rs S-KTRC, the third mode is tuned for low-traction (wet/slippery) conditions, similar to the Concours 14s KTRC. The KTRC system can be turned-off by the rider and its settings and the Hi/Low ignition maps can be selected with the bar-mounted toggle/push switch. KTRC activity can be monitored on a seven-segment real-time bar graph in the cockpits LCD info-screen. The back-torque limiting clutch technology comes directly from the racetrack, and helps eliminate the wheel-hop and stability-eroding torque effects of energetic downshifting and braking while cornering, or during spirited or emergency stops. It also helps protect the bikes drive train, for optimum durability.
The result of all this refined and high-tech hot rodding is arguably the finest open-class sportbike engine ever built and an engine this capable needs a similarly competent chassis in which to live and thrive. The ZX-14R is up to the job, and then some. Kawasaki engineers designed its chassis to deliver a light-handling and maneuverable personality. To provide a sweet-handling character coupled with real sport riding performance, the engineers designed the frames aluminum castings and forgings to have unique flex and rigidity characteristics. So while its monocoque alloy frame and aluminum swingarm designs look similar to the original ZX-14, they have vastly different flex characteristics, stiffer in some places and unchanged in others. The net result creates an ideal balance for the ZX-14Rs world class power and acceleration capabilities.
Front and rear suspension tuning helps maintain the balancing act of wheel control, ride compliance and maneuverability. Both the 43mm fully adjustable inverted fork and multi-adjustable single shock offer excellent response throughout a wide speed range, while the beautifully machined 10-spoke wheels reduce unsprung weight to aid acceleration, handling and suspension action.
The powerful triple petal-type disc brakes help provide powerful, fade-free stops and a progressive feel at the lever. For 2013, the Ninja ZX-14R is also available with optional ABS brakes, for additional rider confidence on mixed or slippery surfaces.
Of course, with this much top-shelf performance, you also have to look good. Dynamic styling has been a Kawasaki hallmark since the days of H1s, H2s and Z-1s, so its only fitting that the pinnacle of a long line of sportbikes looks the part. From tip-to-tail, the ZX-14Rs bodywork honors the imposing, angular and flowing shapes that have made recent Ninjas some of the most attractive sportbikes in existence. The nose is especially imposing, with a highly aggressive nose fitted with a quad-headlight assembly and a large ram-air duct to stuff cool atmosphere into the intake system. The traditional 4-fin theme along the fairings sides has a pronounced 3D design, while great effort was expended to hide hooks and fasteners as much as possible. The bikes tail section is especially well-sculpted, with faired-in turn signals and a cool rear seat cowl standard on all U.S.-spec models boosting aesthetic performance.
The fairing package offers functional benefits as well as aesthetic ones. The seat, for instance, offers excellent thigh support and helps make it easy for vertically challenged riders to reach the ground. The bodyworks venting system effectively extracts heated air from the engine bay and away from the rider and passenger.
Instruments and controls are fully up to the latest standards, with a multi-function switch on the left handlebar that handles all system functions; you can toggle the LCD screen using the upper/lower buttons, and easily scroll through fuel consumption, remaining range, battery voltage, external temperature, traction control, etc., choosing and adjusting functions using the select button in the center of the toggle switch. Theres even an eco indicator on the LCD screen that lets riders know when theyre getting maximum economy and fuel mileage.
The end result of all this technology and all these features is a dominating open-class ride a supremely smooth, powerful and refined sporting motorcycle thatll gladly go anywhere theres asphalt and do it with an uncanny level of competence. High-aggression Sunday-morning rides? No worries. Two-up along the coast for the weekend? Easy. Commuting to and from work? Simple. Weekend bracket racing at the local dragstrip? Cake.
See? Its difficult to compete with an open-classer this good at so many things. Its a fact our competition knows all too well.
As far as safety is concerned the bike is available with an optional ABS system and standard front and rear petal disc brakes.
