First unveiled at the 2005 Tokyo Motor Show, the ZX-14R is a large sport tourer and Kawasaki’s modern-day answer to the Hayabusa. Successor to the earlier ZX-12R, the 14 became Kawasaki’s most powerful production sport bike model. It was introduced for the 2006 model year, and it featured a liquid-cooled, four-cylinder, 1,352cc, DOHC, inline-four with chrome composite plated aluminum cylinder bores, gear-driven dual-engine balancers, ram air induction, digital Mikuni fuel injection, and digital ignition. The 1.35-liter four was good for more than 113 ft-lbs of torque and a claimed 190hp.

Surrounding the engine was a monocoque aluminum chassis with cast aluminum sections around the steering head and swing-arm pivot. In addition to using the motor as a stressed member of the frame, the structure also housed the ZX-14R’s battery, airbox, and air filter. With a curb weight of just under 570 lbs and a 57.5-inch wheelbase, the ZX-14R is not only crazy fast in a straight line, but is also incredibly stable, largely thanks to a well-designed chassis and wind-tunnel-developed bodywork.

The ZX-14 is capable of clocking a 2.5-second 0-60 mph time — the same as a late-model Porsche 911 Turbo S or a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Top speed was electronically limited to 186 mph (or 299km/h), as per an gentlemen’s agreement between Team Green and the rest of the major Japanese manufacturers. Despite being capable of breakneck speeds, the ZX-14 has a surprisingly comfortable yet still fairly aggressive riding position, falling somewhere between your average superbike and sport-tourer. Motorcycle USA knocked out a quarter-mile in 9.783 seconds @ 147.04 miles per hour. Cycle World called it the Best Open Streetbike of 2006 and 2007.

Running gear on the big ZX consisted of beefy 43mm inverted forks and a gas-charged mono-shock — both adjustable or preload, compression, and rebound damping — while braking duties went to dual semi-floating 310mm discs bit by radial-mount four-pot calipers in front and a single 250mm disc with a dual-piston caliper in back.

Manufactured in March of 2006, this example is VIN: JKBZXNA116A003148.
