Kawasaki reveals details, pricing of 2011 Ninja ZX-14

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 14, 2010

Details of the new Kawasaki ZX-14 have finally been revealed. The new hyperbike, which has a price tag of $15,399, is perfect for those who didn’t think that the 2011 Ninja ZX-10R is fast enough. Set to rival Suzuki’s Hayabusa, the 2011 Ninja ZX-14 is powered by a 1,352cc liquid-cooled, DOHC, four valve per cylinder, inline-four engine.

This power is channeled through a hydraulic clutch and six speed transmission, down to the 190/50 ZR17 rear tire. Each piston in the calipers has its own brake pad, which enhances cooling efficiency and reduces the risk of deforming due to heat.

Kawasaki refers to its all-new anti-lock system as the Kawasaki Intelligent anti-lock Brake System (KIBS). This is a multi-sensing system.

It gathers and monitors an extensive range of information taken from wheel sensors (the same ones getting data on the standard ZX-10R for its S-KTRC traction control system) and the bike’s ECU, including wheel speed, caliper pressure, engine rpm, throttle position, clutch actuation and gear position.

Both the front and rear turn signals are integrated by the wind-tunnel designed bodywork. The ZX-14 gets a distinctive front fairing from the quadruple projector beam headlights. The outer lights have position lamps and high beams, while the low beams are found in the center lamps.
