2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R

The Middleweight King Returns to Rule the Streets

The new 2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R marks the return of a middleweight sportbike legend, three numbers that strike fear into the heart of the competition: six...three...six. It is a tradition born of street cred and racetrack domination, a performance boost offered at the same price as the competition's regular six hundreds, and it's a machine that screams Performance Counts! The new ZX-6R honors a dominating family tradition - started ten years ago with the first 636, a revolutionary machine that blew-away the competition's 600's on the street and won races against factory 750's on the track.

2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R Review


That category shattering DNA begins with a new 16-valve, long-stroke DOHC 636cc inline-four that's everything a top-shelf middleweight powerplant should be: torque rich, happy to rev, supremely powerful and smooth enough for everyday use. Its impressive broad-spectrum performance is ideal for everyone from stunters and street riders, to canyon carvers and racetrack junkies.

It all starts with that new 636cc long-stroke engine, that 37cc displacement increase makes a significant impact on real world riding. Increased performance throughout the rpm range is always welcome when racing or sport riding, but increased low- and mid-range torque also significantly enhances everyday usability. Thanks to this engine's larger displacement, performance is boosted throughout the entire powerband. Low-mid range torque is significantly stronger and the engine's total "area under the power curve" grows substantially when compared to the previous 600cc model.

New intake and exhaust port shapes were optimized to suit the extra displacement and help deliver increased performance and improved throttle response. The intake ports are wider near the throttle bodies and now split further upstream from the intake valves. The exhaust ports are wider near the valves and taper on their way to the new exhaust header. New lightweight chromoly steel intake and exhaust camshafts feature increased intake duration, plus increased intake and exhaust lift to compliment the new engine's extra displacement. Revised piston crowns increase piston strength and accommodate the increased valve lift. A molybdenum coating on the piston skirts fights friction and helps with engine break-in. New straight piston pins are more rigid to help preserve high-rpm durability. New 1.5mm shorter connecting rods are also stronger to suit the increased kinetic energy of the longer-stroke, their stems are now 2mm thicker and the small ends feature a 1mm larger-radius to add even more strength.

A new larger airbox features 12.5% more internal volume and contributes to both increased power and a smoother power delivery. New longer single-bore intake funnels contribute to low-mid range torque and feature unique designs for the inner and outer cylinder pairs to help enhance the engine's character. Ultra-fine atomizing injectors deliver a sub-60 micron fuel droplet size, for more effective air-fuel mixing and maximum combustion efficiency. Those new injectors are also capable of delivering a greater total volume of fuel to accommodate the demands of the larger engine. More precise digital fuel injection (DFI®) tuning also enhances throttle response and contributes to reduced emissions.

The result is that this new engine not only delivers class-leading drive out of corners, it also offers superior flexibility and precise throttle control that pays big dividends when making mid-corner power adjustments or stringing a set of curves together on a racetrack or twisting backroad.

All that power is delivered through a new high-tech F.C.C. clutch with assist and slipper functions. It allows quick, effortless downshifts when scrubbing-off speed for a corner and helps minimize rear wheel hop caused by excess back-torque. The new F.C.C. design uses two types of cams, an assist cam and a slipper cam that were developed based on racetrack testing and rider feedback. The "assist" cam acts like a servo mechanism to pull the clutch hub and operating plate together and compress the clutch plates under load. This allows the total clutch spring count and tension to be reduced, resulting in a 20% overall reduction in effort at the clutch lever. The assist cam also increases the clutch's maximum torque capacity, to help it cope with the extra power from the new 636cc engine, without gaining any weight. Whenever back-torque is present, the clutch's "slipper" cam reduces clamping force on the hub and operating plate to help prevent rear wheel hop on trailing-throttle and when down-shifting. A new spring plate assembly offers smoother engagement and helps minimize vibration and clutch judder, and a new aluminum clutch hub is 600-grams lighter than the previous steel unit.

In keeping with its racing DNA, the ZX-6R also employs a cassette-type transmission to simplify gearing changes at the track, help reduce the time needed for bike setup and allow more time for riding. A new shorter first gear, stronger alloys and revised gear thicknesses boost gearbox durability and help it cope with the extra torque produced by the new 636cc engine.

The Ninja ZX-6R features the newest sportbike and racetrack technology offered by Kawasaki. Its three-mode KTRC traction control system is similar to the KTRC unit found on the flagship Ninja ZX-14R, and features even more advanced programming than the S-KTRC system used on the ZX-10R superbike! And its new selectable power modes offer increased tuning options and more flexibility compared to its middleweight competition.

"Full" or "Low" engine power modes can be selected by a switch on the left clip-on. The new power modes allow riders to adjust the engine's power delivery to help suit road conditions or their personal preference. Full mode offers the full range of the engine's performance potential. Low mode offers the same low-rpm power output, but begins to limit power as the rpm rises into the midrange and will only offer up to 80% of the engine's maximum power. Low mode also delivers a softer throttle response which is handy when conditions are slippery or the rider wants to relax.

The KTRC traction control system on the new Ninja ZX-6R combines the best elements of the S-KTRC and KTRC traction control systems on Kawasaki's two flagship sportbikes. Three different KTRC modes are selectable via a switch on the left clip-on. Mode 1 offers maximum racetrack performance, mode 2 offers sporty street performance, and mode 3 is tuned to help eliminate wheelspin and reduce rider anxiety on slippery surfaces. Riders may also elect to turn the system completely off.

KTRC Modes 1 and 2 both prioritize maximum forward acceleration -like the S-KTRC system on a ZX-10R superbike- by using complex analysis to predict when available traction is about to be compromised, and then intervening before slippage exceeds the optimum acceleration range. This minimizes how much power must be reduced to improve or restore rear wheel traction and helps to provide maximum forward drive. Operating parameters are monitored and confirmed 200 times per second, and the system only uses ignition timing to regulate the engine's power output, allowing extremely quick response. KTRC Mode 3 features similar tuning to a Concours™14 ABS sport tourer's traction control system. During normal operation, it uses the same logic and control method as Modes 1-and-2, but immediately switches to three-way intervention -using ignition timing, fuel delivery, and the intake tract's sub-throttles- if excessive rear wheel spin is detected. This allows Mode 3 to reduce engine output all the way down to a level that will allow the rear wheel to regain grip, even on very slippery surfaces. The fine control provided by the sub-throttles also results in a very natural feeling and smooth on/off transitions to help maintain traction even during extended operation in unfavorable conditions. This highly effective system uses minimal hardware paired with very advanced software programming. The only additional hardware required by the KTRC system is a set of front and rear wheel-speed sensors, yet the overall effects of Modes 1, 2 and 3 are easy to distinguish from each other and effectively cover a wide range of riding conditions.

Combining the KTRC and Power Mode options, riders have a total of eight combinations from which to choose, and each system can be independently set to match rider skill/preference, riding location and surface conditions. An experienced rider on dry pavement might choose "Full Power" and "KTRC Mode 1" for a trackday or club race, but in wet and/or slippery conditions, that same rider might choose "Low Power" and "KTRC Mode 3". The various modes are easily selectable from a convenient switch on the left clip-on.

An all-new Showa Big Piston -Separate Function Fork (BP-SFF) combines the innovative concepts of an BPF and an SFF, to produce this new next generation suspension unit. The fork features springs on both sides, with adjustable spring preload in the left tube and adjustable Big Piston compression and rebound damping in the right tube. .3mm thinner fork tube walls save 220-grams per set. Smooth initial stroke action is a one BPF strength that this new fork benefits from, excellent composure under braking is another. The large-diameter (Big) damping piston in the right fork leg is much larger than the dampers that are used in traditional "cartridge" forks with the same external dimensions. Since oil inside the fork leg acts against a much larger surface area, the damping pressure can be reduced without compromising the overall damping effectiveness. Reducing the damping pressure allows the inner fork tube to move more smoothly, which is especially noticeable during the initial part of the stroke. The result is greater composure as the fork begins to compress and a less severe change in chassis attitude as the bike's weight shifts forward while braking. The new BP-SFF fork is tuned for use on twisty roads. This tuning still allows a high level of performance at the racetrack, with significantly better response in the city and on the highway. The BP-SFF offers much easier adjustability, with all spring preload setting and damper adjustments dedicated to separate fork legs: the spring preload adjuster is on the left fork; the compression and rebound damping adjusters are on the right fork. All adjusters are located on the upper fork caps and easily accessed from above.

The bottom-link Uni-Trak® rear suspension features a new 25mm longer shock spring with a lower rate, and a revised linkage with higher lever ratios for an improved ride in the city or on the highway. Rear shock adjustability includes spring preload, 25-position rebound damping and stepless compression damping.

New one-piece "monobloc" radial-mount Nissin brake calipers and new 310mm petal-type front rotors help provide superb braking power, with great feel at the lever. A new lighter rear brake caliper helps offer good fade-resistance and optimum rear brake performance and squeezes a 220mm petal-type rotor. The rear master cylinder reservoir mounts forward of the swingarm pivot, to maximize free space around the footpeg. The rear brake pedal is coaxially-mounted with the footpeg, for excellent mid-stroke braking efficiency and optimum feel.

The new 2013 Ninja ZX-6R ABS sportbike features the Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS). The use of "intelligent" is appropriate, considering just how smart KIBS is. It all starts with a compact and lightweight motorcycle ABS unit, one Bosch designed specifically with sportbikes in mind. KIBS is a multi-sensing system that collects and monitors a wide range of data from wheel speed sensors (the same ones collecting info for the KTRC traction control system) and the bike's ECU. The monitored parameters include: wheel speed, brake caliper pressure, engine rpm, throttle position, clutch actuation and what gear is currently selected. The KIBS ABS ECU communicates with the engine's ECU and crunches the numbers, and when it senses a potential lock-up situation, it tells the ABS unit to temporarily reduce brake line pressure, helping the wheel to regain traction. Aside from an ultra-fast response time, it also offers a number of additional sport-riding benefits, including rear-end lift suppression during hard braking, reduced lever kickback during ABS intervention, and enhanced rear brake control during downshifts. A high-precision pressure control unit enables the system to avoid reduced brake performance (unlike some less advanced systems) and maintain proper lever feel.

The 2013 Ninja ZX-6R features new bodywork with a sharp design that communicates a new, more-aggressive image. New larger fairing openings provide increased airflow and enhanced heat dissipation. The new fairing lowers, rear cowl, and assorted blacked-out body panels contribute to the bike's compact and lightweight appearance. A sleek one-piece front fender offers excellent aerodynamics. New projector beam headlights are encased in a sharp looking new housing that features integrated position lamps. New semi-flush front turn signals are built into the new bodywork, and compact rear turn signals complement the minimalist design of the tail section. A new compact LED taillight is lightweight, very bright and offers a modern high-tech appearance. A "hugger" fender above the swingarm helps to reduce aerodynamic turbulence and helps keep the undertail area clean.

The ergonomic seat-peg-bar layout places the handlebars close to the rider and at an angle that promotes a highly intuitive and comfortable riding position. The fuel tank cover is flared around its top edge to provide a large contact patch and contribute to excellent chassis feedback. A narrow lightweight aluminum rear sub-frame and seat leading edge provide a slender and effective high-performance sportbike riding position, as well as a shorter reach to the pavement.

The instrument panel gives at-a-glance information to the rider, with an analog-style tachometer that is complemented by a multi-function LCD screen. New LCD functions include KTRC and Power Mode indicators, as well as ABS and Economical Riding (ECO) indicators. Additional LCD functions include a digital speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, clock, instant and average fuel consumption, coolant temperature, as well as shift indicator, traction control activity level and low-fuel warning lights. A large gear position indicator gives instant numerical gear confirmation. A new mirror design offers increased rearward visibility without increasing the overall vehicle width.

- Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®) system features four 38mm Keihin throttle bodies with oval sub-throttles
- Revised intake and exhaust ports suit the engine's larger displacement. The intake ports are wider near the throttle bodies and the passages to the valves split earlier. The exhaust ports are wider near the exhaust valves
- New intake cam lobes feature longer duration, intake and exhaust lobes have increased lift for additional power
- Chrome-moly steel camshafts are light, strong and durable
- New pistons feature a revised crown to enhance strength and accommodate the increased valve lift
- Revised 12.9:1 compression ratio suits longer-stroke and increased displacement

- Modified passages connecting cylinders were revised so the longer stroke would not cause the pistons to obstruct them and increase pumping losses
- New larger airbox contributes to increased peak power and smooth power delivery
- New longer, single-bore intake funnels improve low-mid range torque. Two different funnel shapes (outer are the same, inner are the same ) help deliver optimized throttle response
- Ultra-fine atomizing injectors help ensure complete air-fuel mixing and maximum combustion efficiency. More precise tuning contributes to reduced emissions. The injectors can also flow a greater volume of fuel, to help match the new larger-displacement engine
- New exhaust features balance tubes on all four header pipes to maximize low-end torque
- Exhaust pre-chamber makes efficient use of space, reduces exhaust noise and allows a smaller muffler to be used
- New muffler features a triangular cross-section to provide sufficient internal volume while still offering good ground clearance and maximum lean angle, as well as a compact appearance
- New lighter generator with revised coils produces less heat and reduces mechanical loss
- New zero-cross control voltage regulator significantly reduces the amount of electronic noise produced when it interrupts the generator's output
- Cassette-type transmission helps simplify ratio-swaps and reduce set-up time at the track
- New shorter first gear, stronger alloys and revised gear thicknesses improve durability and help cope with the extra torque produced by the 636cc engine

NEW Selectable Power Modes
- New power mode selector on the left clip-on gives ZX-6R riders the option to choose between two different engine power delivery modes to suit their needs
- Output at low- rpm is the same in both modes, but "Low" mode limits engine output to approximately 80% and gives a milder throttle response. "Hi" mode allows the full performance potential of the engine to be unleashed

NEW Three-Mode Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC)
- New three-mode KTRC traction control combines the best elements of the Ninja ZX-10R S-KTRC and ZX-14R/Concours™14 KTRC systems.
- Three different modes are tuned to cover a wide-range of situations from advanced racetrack use, to normal street riding, to mixed/slippery conditions, for enhanced rider confidence
- Mode 1 is tuned to maximize acceleration, like the ZX-10R S-KTRC system
- Mode 2 is tuned to help provide a balance of performance with minimal wheel slip
- Mode 3 prioritizes slip elimination, similar to the Concours14 ABS sport touring KTRC system, for enhanced rider confidence in mixed or slippery conditions
- The KTRC system may also be turned-off completely, at the rider's discretion
- Handy mode selector on the left clip-on makes it easy for the rider to change KTRC settings
- Using complex programming algorithms, the KTRC system is able to predict impending wheelspin and act before slippage exceeds the optimum range, allowing reductions in power to be minimized for ultra-smooth operation
- In modes 1 and 2, conditions are analyzed 200 times per second and any necessary adjustments are made through ignition timing alone, for extremely quick response from the engine and KTRC system
- In Mode 3, the system functions like mode 2 under most conditions, but when excessive rear wheel spin is detected, Mode 3 switches to complete three-way control of ignition timing, fuel delivery and intake airflow to regulate engine output to a level that allows the rear wheel to regain grip. By controlling the sub-throttles in the intake tract for precise torque management, a smooth and natural feeling can be attained: Mode 3 intervention and on/off transitions are very smooth to help maintain stability during extended operation
- The system uses minimal hardware supplemented by advanced software. In addition to the engine's ECU, the system only requires front and rear wheel speed sensors, meaning minimal additional weight is required for traction control on the standard model and no additional weight is required on ABS models which already have wheel speed sensors

NEW F.C.C. Clutch with Assist and Slipper Functions
- New F.C.C. clutch with assist & slipper functions uses two types of cams, an assist cam and a slipper cam that were developed based on racetrack testing and rider feedback
- The F.C.C. clutch's "assist" cam acts like a self-servo mechanism, pulling the clutch hub and operating plate together to compress the clutch plates under load. This allows the total clutch spring count and pressure to be reduced, resulting in a 20% reduction in effort at the clutch lever
- The assist cam also increases the torque capacity of the clutch so it can cope with the extra torque produced by the new 636cc engine, without gaining any weight
- The F.C.C. clutch's "slipper" cam reduces the clamping force on the clutch hub and operating plate when back-torque conditions are present and helps prevent rear wheel hop on trailing-throttle and when down-shifting
- New spring plate assembly provides smoother engagement and helps minimize clutch judder
- New aluminum clutch hub is 600-grams lighter than the previous steel unit

NEW Radial-mount Monobloc Brakes
- New highly rigid, radial-mount "monobloc" Nissin brake calipers offer superb control and a firmer feel at the front brake lever. They are a total of 90-grams lighter and offer increased heat dissipation compared to the previous model
- New larger-diameter semi-floating 310mm stainless-steel petal-type front rotors contribute to stronger braking performance
- Radial-pump master cylinder gives excellent lever feel and helps offer superb brake modulation
- Front brake hose routing features a three-way joint at the lower triple clamp that facilitates effective brake line bleeding to help maintain a firm feel at the front brake lever
- New lighter rear brake caliper helps offer good anti-fade rear brake performance and squeezes a 220mm petal-type rotor
- Rear brake pedal is mounted coaxially with the footpeg for good braking efficiency mid-stroke and excellent response to lever inputs
- Rear brake master cylinder reservoir is mounted forward of the swingarm pivot, to maximize space around the footpeg

NEW Supersport-grade KIBS ABS (ZX-6R ABS only)
- KIBS is a multi-sensing system, using input from numerous sources. In addition to front and rear wheel speed sensors (standard for any ABS system), KIBS also monitors front caliper hydraulic pressure and data from the engine's ECU (throttle position, engine speed, clutch actuation and gear position)
- Compact, lightweight BOSCH ABS unit was designed specifically for sportbike use and made its first mass-production appearance on the 2011 Ninja ZX-10R
- Highly-precise brake pressure control enables the system to avoid a reduction in brake performance due to excessive pressure drops, and allows good brake lever feel to be maintained during KIBS intervention by providing smaller and lighter ABS pulses than comparable systems
- Supersport models frequently encounter higher braking forces than less sporting models, so there is a greater likelihood of rear tire lift under extreme deceleration. By monitoring hydraulic pressure at the front calipers, KIBS is able to regulate pressure increases and help reduce the tendency of the rear tire to lift.
- By accounting for back-torque, KIBS is able to offer increased rear brake control during downshifts. KIBS parameters include throttle position, clutch actuation and gear position, allowing the system to predict back-torque caused by trailing-throttle at high-rpm, or down-shifting. Rear wheel slip due to engine braking often triggers ABS action on standard systems, but by preventing unnecessary ABS intervention in these situations, KIBS helps enhance rear brake control
- Thanks to the compact size and light weight of the ABS unit, the system adds only 4.4 pounds compared to non-ABS models

NEW Big Piston - Separate Function Fork: (BP-SFF)
- New BP-SFF fork combines the features of Showa's big piston and separate function forks, featuring springs on both sides, with dedicated preload adjustability in the left tube and dedicated damping pistons and adjustability in the right tube
- New .3mm thinner fork tube walls provide a 220-gram weight reduction
- Big Piston design provides smooth action during the initial part of the stroke and contributes to excellent feel during heavy braking. The large-diameter damper piston is much bigger than those used in traditional "cartridge" forks
- Big Piston design allows the fork oil to act on a much larger surface area, so the damping pressure can be reduced without compromising effectiveness. Reducing the damping pressure allows the slider to react more smoothly, which is especially noticeable during the initial part of the stroke. The result is greater control as the fork begins to compress and very calm response during braking-induced weight-transfer, for greater chassis stability on corner entry
- Fork settings were tuned for maximum effectiveness on twisty roads, allowing a high level of performance for the racetrack, with a much better ride in the city and on the highway
- BP-SFF design offers much easier adjustability, by locating all adjusters in the caps at the top of the two fork tubes: preload on the left; compression and rebound damping on the right.

Rear suspension
- Bottom-link Uni-Trak® rear suspension offers 5.3 inches of travel and features a gas-charged shock with top-out spring and a pillow ball upper shock mount
- New rear spring is 25mm longer and features a softer rate than the previous model to enhance ride comfort and compliance when the road isn't racetrack-smooth
- New rear suspension linkage has a higher leverage ratio for improved rear ride comfort
- Full adjustability includes: stepless compression damping, 25-way adjustable rebound damping, and fully adjustable spring preload

Lightweight Chassis
- Revised lightweight twin-spar aluminum frame places the engine in the optimum position for superb handling and rider feedback
- New steeper 23.5 rake angle helps provide quick steering response and enhances communication from the front tire
- Intake resonator box and supports for the instrument panel and mirrors are unitized with the ram air duct, contributing to weight savings and increased rigidity
- Forward-tilted engine layout gives a steep intake angle and excellent CG

2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R ABS Special Edition

Superlative Performance: the Quickest and Strongest Sportbike in the World!

Since the dawn of modern motorcycling Kawasaki has been respected as the no-holds-barred, take-no-prisoners king of two wheeled performance... and that’s not about to change any time soon.

2013 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R ABS Special Edition Review

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 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 with 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 there's 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 it's 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-14R's engine is more than supremely powerful; there's also plenty of polish and refined manners to go along with it. The engine's dual gear-driven counterbalancer setup has been optimized to work with the mill's heavy-duty crankshaft and long-stroke dimensions. The end result is smooth power across the entire rev range.

Beyond just being impressively strong, the engine's 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-10R's S-KTRC, the third mode is tuned for low-traction (wet/slippery) conditions, similar to the Concours™ 14 sport tourer's 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 cockpit's 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 bike's 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 frame's 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-14R's 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 ABS Special Edition 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 it's only fitting that the pinnacle of a long line of sportbikes looks the part. From tip-to-tail, the ZX-14R's bodywork honors the imposing, angular and flowing shapes that have made recent Ninja models 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 fairing's sides has a pronounced 3D design, while great effort was expended to hide hooks and fasteners as much as possible. The bike's 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 bodywork's 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. There's even an "eco" indicator on the LCD screen that lets riders know when they're 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 that'll gladly go anywhere there's 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? It's difficult to compete with an open-classer this good at so many things. It's a fact our competition knows all too well.

Genuine Kawasaki Accessories are available through authorized Kawasaki dealers.

- Bottom-link design helps create a lower center of gravity, which makes the motorcycle more nimble

Aggressive Supersport Bodywork
- Monocoque frame is positioned over the engine so the sleek fairing is uninterrupted by protruding frame spars, adding to the extremely long and low styling
- Efficient fairing venting offers excellent engine-heat control to help maintain rider and passenger comfort on hot days
- Standard rear-seat cowl adds aesthetic appeal
- Both the front and rear turn signals are integrated into the bodywork and have clear lenses to enhance for a more modern appearance
- Quadruple projector beam headlights give the ZX™-14R a distinctive look. The outer lights contain position lamps and high beams, while the low beams are located in the center lamps
- Lightweight Denso radiator with dual fans and high-density cores provides maximum cooling efficiency

Full Instrumentation
- Black-faced dual analog speedometer and tachometer are easy to read
- Multi-function LCD digital display includes an odometer, two trip meters, fuel gauge, gear position indicator, clock, and many other variables, including traction-control and power mode information through its LCD indicator
- Programmable shift indicator lamp illuminates at pre-set rpm to signal rider upshift
- Programmable clutch engagement lamp illuminates at pre-set rpm to signal the rider to engage the clutch
- Controller Area Network (CAN) interface between the gauges uses fewer wires yet allows a greater volume of information, such as estimated fuel mileage, to be exchanged
