Renowned for its dominance at the drag strip, the mighty Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R is King of the Quarter Mile. An enormous 1,441 cc engine, premium onboard electronics and uncompromising refinement give the Ninja ZX-14R the ability to take on the track or the backroads with sophisticated ease.

Witness The Phenomenon

The Ninja ZX-14R motorcycle’s ultra-powerful 1,441 cc inline four-cylinder engine puts it at the top of its class. Advanced electronics, an innovative monocoque frame and stunning bodywork makes the Ninja ZX-14R a sensation you have to see—and feel—to believe.

Smooth & Potent

The incredibly powerful 1,441 cc In-Line Four of the Ninja ZX-14R comes with two selectable power modes: Full Power (for peak performance) and Low Power (for milder response), which delivers approximately 75% of full power output.Shown with optional accessory rear seat cowl

Exhilarating Performance

Advanced electronics systems like Kawasaki TRaction Control (KTRC) and Digital Fuel Injection (DFI) provide unmatched performance.

Optimal Traction

KTRC allows you to select from three different modes to match road conditions for ideal traction.

Smooth Shifting

To reduce rear-wheel hop during downshifts, the Ninja ZX-14R clutch is equipped with a back-torque limiter.

The Right Mix

Digital Fuel Injection (DFI) delivers the perfect fuel mixture for optimal performance.

Power You Can Control

Everything from the lightweight monocoque aluminium frame to the wind-tunnel-tested aerodynamic bodywork of the Ninja ZX-14R was designed to deliver exceptional handling.

Precision Control

The inverted o43 mm cartridge-type fork and bottom-link Uni Trak rear suspension provide ride comfort and contribute to precise control of the motorcycle’s immense power.

Ohlins Rear Shock

Jointly developed with Ohlins, the high-performance rear shock was created especially for the Ninja ZX-14R. The Ohlins TTX39 shock, with its highly acclaimed TTX technology, offers numerous rider benefits, including enhanced stability, superb feedback, and sublime ride comfort. A remote preload adjuster makes it easy to adjust settings without tools to suit tandem riding or luggage.
