ZZR re-engineered and reborn. The new ZZR1400 matches Kawasaki’s passion for engineering with your desire for ultimate performance. Satisfy the thrill seeker within you with dominating acceleration mated to sophisticated rider aids. Power never felt so good. You’ve got the power. With a heady maximum of 200hp, the mighty ZZR is a machine that is used to comfortably shrinking vast distances. Amazing low and mid range torque make this iconic bike both powerful and practical. The Performance model features Akrapovic silencers, a genuine kawasaki rear seat cover and a higher windscreen giving you the ultimate Kawsaki ZZR 1400 motorbike.

Strongest accelerating production motorcycle on the planet
Designed to settle the issue of supremacy in the flagship class once and for all, the ZZR1400's new engine boasts an increased displacement and thorough engine tuning to deliver heady levels of power and unrivalled acceleration. The step up in performance over its predecessor is readily apparent, with more available torque across the rev range and substantially higher upper-end power. And with the notably stronger acceleration, twisting the throttle past 4,000 rpm may result in a sensation not entirely unlike that experienced by astronauts breaking free from the Earth’s gravitational pull.

Dominant Performance
4 mm longer stroke increases displacement of the powerful In-Line Four engine to 1,441 cm³. Bore and Stroke are now 84 x 65 mm. Compared to its predecessor, the new engine offers more torque at all rpm, and substantially more power in the mid-high range. Acceleration from 4,000 rpm and up is notably stronger. Torque is strong enough to pull away from lights in almost any gear: at 2,000 rpm there is 9.5 kgf.m of torque available! And this figure jumps significantly from 3,000 rpm.

Aluminium Monocoque Frame
While basic geometry is inherited from its predecessor, rigidity of the aluminium monocoque frame was completely revised to suit the new engine’s greater output. Deceptively, the frame looks unchanged, but more than half of its components are new.

Attention to Details
Sculpted design of the upper triple clamp complements the high-quality image of the cockpit area. On the special graphics edition, the upper triple clamp features contrasting sections: painted finish vs. hairline finish with a clear coat.

Increased Carrying Convenience
The ZZR features retractable luggage hooks that tuck in neatly at the rear of the front seat. These are complemented by two hooks on the passenger tail grip. Idealised hook placement (not too close together) enables large-sized items to be securely attached to the rear seat.

LED Taillight
More aggressive, larger-volume tail maintains the LED taillight and integrated rear turn signals of the predecessor.

Power Mode Selection
A choice of Full Power or Low Power modes allows riders to set power delivery to suit preference and conditions. Low Power mode limits output to approximately 75% of Full Power and uses a milder throttle response. (Reduction of both power and throttle response varies according to engine speed (rpm), throttle position and gear position.)

Sculpted by the wind, the ZZR1400’s bodywork offers high aerodynamic performance that reduces drag, and contributes to stability and wind protection at highway speeds.

Improved ABS Performance
ABS models are available in certain markets. Revised ECU programming based on test rider and customer feedback results in improved ABS braking performance on bumpy road conditions.

Lightweight Wheels
All-new wheels offer significant weight savings over those of the predecessor. The front wheel is 360 g lighter and the rear wheel saves 1030 g, for a total reduction of 1.39 kg.

Stronger, Longer Swingarm
Gusseting on the swingarm increases rigidity to match the greater output. Swingarm is 10 mm longer to suit the new final gear ratio. (This also contributes to the slightly longer wheelbase.)

Series-first Back-torque Limiter
Easily adjustable back-torque limiting clutch facilitates smooth downshifts and helps prevent rear wheel hop, which becomes more likely with the increased back-torque

Stronger, Shorter-geared Transmission
While the increased engine performance already delivers significantly increased torque, shorter gearing care of a larger rear sprocket (41T >> 42T) further accentuates the stronger acceleration. Heat and surface treatment for all the gears ensures the durability to cope with the incredible loads from the powerful engine as well as greater wear resistance for the parts of the gear that come in contact with the shift forks. Stronger 530-size chain features larger pins and inner plates to match the engine’s greater power and torque.

3-Mode KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control)
The KTRC system offered on the ZZR1400 combines the best elements of Kawasaki’s two traction control systems, S-KTRC and KTRC. Three modes cover a range of riding conditions, offering either enhanced sport riding performance or the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence. Riders can choose from three modes. Modes 1 and 2 prioritise maximum forward acceleration (like the S-KTRC system on the 2011 Ninja ZX-10R). Mode 3 is similar to the KTRC system offered on the 2010 1400GTR, providing rider reassurance by facilitating smooth riding on slippery surfaces. Riders may also elect to turn the system off.

Sculpted styling
Thematic quadruple fins of the side fairings are maintained, although their design is more 3-dimensional, contributing to a more dynamic image of the side of the bike.

Fuel tank details
The capacious tank marries with the distance abaility of the mighty ZZR1400, and a protective tank-pad comes as standard.

New seat
Plush, broad and supportive, the ZZR1400 seat is a lesson in riding comfort for both pilot and passenger

Multi-function Instrumentation
Brushed alluminium bezels and a multifunction display ooze quality from every pore.

New headlamp
"Look out I am here!" says the puposeful headlamp design, ignore at your peril
