The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R: Farewell To The King Of Speed?
The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R might just be the final performance from Kawasaki Motorcycle’s King of Speed. Not able to meet Euro 5 compliance in the current form the beloved Japanese-made legend has not had any appreciable updates since 2012. The 2021 Kawasaki lineup includes the H2 SX+ SE, which is capable of meeting or exceeding the standards set by the ZX-14R, albeit at a higher price, it is hard not to see how it is being groomed to fill the slot of the ZX-14R
Price in many ways is why the ZX-14R is still worth your attention. For comparatively low dollars you get 1441cc’s of crazy power, over 200 hp, and 110lb of torque, which shoves you forward as if smacked by Godzilla. The power builds down low and seems to never stop, you will run out of road and/or courage before the ZX-14R runs out of thrust.
Equipped with ABS, traction control, selectable power modes, the ZX-14R has what you need for a fantastic ride, Bluetooth won’t make you go faster.
Perhaps the most impressive feature? Comfort! A bike with this history of ¼ mile greatness, and top speed superiority, doesn’t usually build expectations of comfort. Yet rider after rider comments at just how well the bike fits and feels. Making it still, an amazing choice for very sporty touring.
Color for 2021 include: Pearl Storm Gray / Metallic Diablo Black
The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R starts at $15,199 USD / $18,099 CAD.
