Technical Features below:

Power For Long-distance Sport Riding

comes from a ZZR1400-based tuned for more low- and torque. This liquid-cooled, In-Line Four features valve timing for high output at low and medium rpm. off the line and when overtaking are spectacular, and the engine spins up in the higher rpm range.

Thanks to a tuned fuel injection off-idle throttle response and response across the rev range is and natural.

Ram Air

Just like a bike, the GTR features Kawasaki’s Ram Air Dual Ram Air ducts located on the cowl feed the engine the flow of cool air needed for performance. Resonators located the inlets reduce intake for quiet running.


The of the monocoque frame doubles as an contributing to the GTR’s compact and dimensions.

Fuel Injection

The FI system sub-throttles, and the diameter of the throttle has been reduced from (ZZR1400) to 40 mm for more linear low and throttle response and for increased Because the smaller diameter bodies give increased velocity, throttle response is crisp from low rpm to high.

atomising injectors contribute to the sensitive throttle response, minute throttle adjustments.

The of the new fuel injection system makes use of feedback from O2 and the variable valve timing exhaust emissions, allowing the GTR to the stringent Euro-III emissions

Variable Valve Timing

variable valve timing (a first), the camshaft timing in response to rpm and throttle position. The is high torque output in the low and rpm ranges and awesome high-rpm at the top end. Combustion efficiency is improved, contributing to enhanced efficiency.

An ECU-controlled OCV (Oil Valve) changes the pressure of oil in the of an actuator located at the end of the intake As the pressure changes, oil is fed into or out of the via holes in the camshaft. The changing of oil causes the actuator to move, the camshaft, thereby advancing and the valve timing.

The intake is retarded at low rpm, reducing the overlap for cleaner, more combustion in the low-rpm range.

Special cam profiles are used to the variable valve timing. The new have less lift those of the ZZR1400.

Lightweight, rigid forged camshafts are for precise valve timing at rpm.


Complementing the valve timing are new pistons reshaped crowns. Compared the ZZR1400, compression has been from 12.0:1 to 10.7:1.


Super-strong sintered rods (same as those of the are used to ensure high and long-term reliability.


Magnesium valve cover to weight reduction.


To high crankcase rigidity the are cast integral with the crankcase. Plated cylinders operating friction, and along revised piston clearance, to extremely quiet engine


ACG flywheel mass has increased to enhance the low-rpm characteristics.

Exhaust System

stainless steel exhaust are fitted which are tuned for yet very responsive power A 4-2-1 layout is used, and a and O2 sensor are fitted to ensure the GTR meets the stringent Euro-III regulations.

A single tri-oval replaces the dual oval used on the ZZR1400 for reduced and less noise.

Engine Balancer

Like the the GTR features dual balancer ensuring a super-smooth ride


For high cooling the radiator is fitted with radiator fans of different (The ZZR1400 uses a fan.)

Electric Accessory Supply

To power grip and other electrical accessories, the ACG has been increased. (The is the same as that of the ZZR1400.)

Power To The Tarmac


The is not called the Transcontinental‚ Supersport for Like Kawasaki’s Ninja bikes, the GTR comes standard a back-torque limiting clutch helps minimise rear hop when downshifting at high

Dampers fitted to the clutch cam shock loads to the clutch and contributing to smooth and seamless delivery.

Operation of the hydraulic is equally smooth and very thanks to a radial pump cylinder.


The 1400GTR equipped with a 6-speed

The sixth gear is an overdrive that allows engine to be reduced when cruising for comfort and low fuel consumption.

Rear Suspension

To ensure the GTR’s massive torque is to the tarmac as efficiently as possible, a rigid, dual-sided, 4-link is used.

Kawasaki calls the Tetra-Lever. It is designed to offset the tendency of shaft drives the throttle is opened/closed. Two-point shafts are used, ensuring a power delivery to the road The ride quality and chassis are very natural and feel to chain drive, with benefits of the very direct‚ drive feel.

The high of this swingarm design excellent rider feedback, to the unique GTR sport riding

Handling-focused Chassis Design

Monocoque Frame

For a combination of weight, slim design and handling characteristics, the 1400GTR is with a high-rigidity aluminium frame.

This unique is a more advanced version of the first used by the Ninja and ZZR1400. It delivers very yet very responsive handling just what is needed for a supersport bike.

To reduce the of increased weight on the bike’s characteristics, the steering head, plate and swingarm bracket made stiffer, giving the frame 20% more torsional than the ZZR1400’s frame.

Weight Balance

Compared the ZZR1400, the GTR’s frame has a caster angle, moving the axle 30 mm forward. The swingarm was extended, moving the rear 30 mm further back. The result is a wheel weight bias marginally different from the

And because the GTR was developed primarily luggage attached, when two-up or with luggage, tuning the suspension is simply a twist of the remote preload away.

Mass Centralisation

The tank is centrally located in the and extends vertically below the The battery and ABS unit are also located, ensuring both front/rear and vertical mass

The electrically adjustable windscreen and are also mounted as close to the centre of gravity as possible, to the GTR’s nimble handling, and of manoeuvrability when off the bike.


Thanks to the Tetra-Lever arm, the virtual swinging arm location remains ideal, the up/down movement associated conventional shaft drives.

with the ZZR, the castor was increased from 23to 26 for straight-line stability.


stability is excellent, thanks in to a wheelbase which is 60 mm longer the ZZR’s. In spite of this, the sporty cornering performance that of many pure bikes.

Precise Control And Handling

Inverted Front

Sturdy 43mm inverted complements the high-rigidity frame and brilliant high-speed handling whether on winding roads or on expressways.

The fork is adjustable for damping and preload.

Tetra-Lever Suspension

The Tetra-Lever rear is supported at four points on the and right side and mounts to unique Uni-Trak suspension This system almost eliminates the up/down movement with shaft drives acceleration and deceleration, resulting in a natural ride feel.

On any the opposing forces of the inertia of the pushing backwards on the swinging arm and the surface pushing forward on the tyre results in torque tends to rotate the final With conventional swinging this rotation occurs the swinging arm pivot. By using levers, the Tetra-Lever system a longer effective swinging moving the point of rotation (or swinging arm pivot) forward.

The is that vertical movement results from this force (the cause of‚ effect) is minimized.

In a perfect Tetra-Lever would completely this effect, but a certain of rotation was desired to offset the in weight balance that under acceleration and deceleration. the GTR, settings were to deliver those characteristics resembling those of a chain-drive

To ensure both high during long-distance touring and handling performance, the link linkage ratios, … spring rates and damping were specially calibrated for the The suspension offers excellent absorbing performance, and is only affected when riding pillion or with luggage on

The rear suspension has rebound adjustability, and is fully adjustable for via a remote hydraulic adjuster negates the need for additional

Single-piece Swinging arm

One-piece aluminium swinging arm is lightweight and

The dual-sided Tetra-Lever design has more torsional rigidity single-sided swinging arms, an component of the GTR’s sport potential.

Using a construction makes the torque rods on top of the arm stressed members reduces the on the swinging arm. Locating the arm pivot inside the frame (as on a drive bike) results in a rigid structure. In addition, the bolted on the left side of the shaft contributes to the shaft’s


The lightweight front and wheels feature the same design as the ZZR1400’s. However, to the increased loads associated the weight of the shaft drive and the rear wheel is stronger and rigid.


The GTR runs on the size tyres as the ZZR: Rear=190/50ZR17, however the tyre and compounds were specially to the unique requirements of the GTR.

Air Pressure Sensor System

To riders of any tyre pressure tyre pressure sensors are as standard equipment (a first for a

The system allows the rider to tyre pressure while When tyre pressure below 220 kPa, a low pressure is displayed. The ability to take account temperature changes and values recalculated for 20¢XC prevent false warnings air expands as the tyres warm up.

Braking Performance


The front brake uses the radial-pump master cylinder as the but with a newly designed

Like a supersport bike, the GTR radial-mount, opposed 4-piston gripping semi-floating 310 mm petal Braking performance is simply

Rear Brake

Because riders tend to rely heavily on the rear brake, the GTR is with a 270 mm rear disc, 20 mm than the ZZR’s. The brake surface area is also for ease of operation. Like the brakes, a petal disc is at the rear.

It is operated by an opposed caliper.

Continent-crossing Ergonomics And Riding

Riding Position

A spacious and riding position reduces during long rides and it easy for the rider to shift his forward and rearward.


with the ZZR, the GTR’s are located 96 mm further back and 100 mm giving a more relaxed and riding position than a supersport bike, but a sportier position than conventional touring bikes.


The seat is relatively firm and thick cushion material, excellent comfort during tours. The passenger section of the is specially shaped and cushioned for tandem riding.

To ensure a lean angle while improved comfort (thanks to bend at the knees) during hours in the saddle, the seat is 15 mm higher than the ZZR’s.

The seat is stepped to allow the better forward vision and to the passenger feel closer to the all of which improves the passenger’s


The footpegs are lower and forward than on the ZZR, together with the higher create a more relaxed posture.

The passenger footpegs are designed for less bend at the and a more relaxed posture.


The fuel tank beneath the seat, contributing to centralisation. This layout in an overall slim design and a natural, more comfortable position.

Electrically Adjustable

For an added measure of protection windblast and turbulence, the GTR features a style windscreen specially for supersport touring. The screen’s and angle are steplessly adjustable.

The has minimal distortion, allowing forward vision

Leg Shields

leg shields ensure laminar around the bike while engine heat away the rider’s legs. Removing the allows heat from the to more easily warm the legs on cold days.

Capacious Panniers

Fitted as equipment, the capacious panniers are designed to complement the GTR’s styling package. The panniers are detachable. Water-resistant, each easily hold a full-face

The panniers are mounted as close as to the bike’s centreline and as close as to the bike’s centre of gravity. lightweight construction was designed to their influence on the bike’s of mass.

Maximum capacity for pannier is 10 kg.

Handy Glove Box

A glove box located on the top of the tank is for stowing small items sunglasses, folding maps and fees. It features a one-push mechanism.
