Kawasaki ZZR-1400 Review


The battle for the title of “World’s fastest Bike” is literally fast and Suzuki Hayabusa was holding the for a short period of time being “smoked” away the launch of the Kawasaki ZZR-1400 or also known as the ZX-14 in parts of the world.

This of the highways has a new monocoque aluminium 4 mm longer … which the displacement of the powerful In-Line engine to 1,441 cm3. and Stroke are now 84 x 65 mm. Torque is strong to pull away from in almost any gear: at 2,000 rpm is 9.5 kgf.m of torque available! And figure jumps significantly 3,000 rpm.

The milled combustion chambers compression ratio to 12.3:1 12.0:1).Both intake and exhaust has revised shapes for increased Additionally, the intake ports are now contributing to smoother intake Exhaust ports have a diameter, facilitating the expulsion of fuel-air mixture. ø33.4 mm valves feature longer mm) stems. ø28.3 mm exhaust are heat treated for high and high-rpm reliability.

Stronger cam matches the increased performance as as the taller cylinder height. New cam chain tensioner features a ratchet system that pressure on the cam chain is maintained the engine is cold (and pressure is low), reducing noise. The new pistons are stronger and (by approximately 6 g each), reducing weight.

Compared to its predecessor, the new engine more torque at all rpm, and more power in the mid-high rpm Acceleration from 4,000 rpm and up is stronger and provides a real rush with a tap of the throttle.

power is by a front twin 310 mm petal discs, ABS, calliper and radial-pump brake cylinder. While the rear has a 250 mm disc, twin-piston calliper system. However I personally that with such a bike, the brakes can be further

It didn’t gives me the confidence a supertourer like this should.

Wind protection is disappointing as going anything 140Km/h, at normal sitting wind is hitting hard my helmet. The design of the front would be better at a higher seeing that majority of are neither small nor short. The new has sporty bodywork and although the new fairing is supposed to offer heat management, and with two fans contributing to increase performance, heat dissipation the engine is a let-down.

Going at constant 70Km/h, I can the heat of the engine “burning” my jeans. It would be great for climate countries but definitely not for countries like Malaysia.

position is comfortable and the seat is than its predecessor for easy to the ground. Leg rest / pegs however is not good as I developed hip when riding with a and on a consistent speed of 70 – 100Km/h. I was having difficulties at times gear shifting as my boots was tangled between the leg peg and the gear especially during high turns.

Engine vibration is almost nil and shifting is very smooth to the standard of Premium Tourer the Goldwing) thanks to the Back-Torque (a first for this series) also helps prevents wheel hop.

Going in and out of at twisties is smooth but don’t it as if you are on a superbike because the traction kicks in early, unless of you turn the traction control

Buttons are easily reachable for the 2 power mode (Full and and 3 (1, 2, 3+ Off) traction control The KTRC (Kawasaki Traction 1 2 mode offers sports performance while mode 3 you better control over surfaces. Other features / that can be retrieved from the button and displayed in the LCD are remaining battery voltage, odometer, position, clock, dual meters, engine and outside

Kawasaki has maintained the analogue for both its speedometer and tachometer. its pressed stainless-steel rings and LED it looks exclusive and cool. The powerful projector-beams headlights are at night, giving wide and view of any dark roads

Overall, this bike is for highway cruising and for those who regularly on the highways but not very for town or narrow twisties
