The Kawasaki ZX-14R has been one of the most anticipated motorcycles of the new model year. The company has stated quite clearly that the newly designated ZX-14R will be the fastest accelerating motorcycle in production and it uses the most powerful production motorcycle engine ever built.
With the arrival of the 2012 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R indicates the start of a new era in stock motorcycle performance. Kawasaki ZX-14R has got the ability to produce a record 9.47-second (tested) sprint through the quarter-mile at 152.83 mph, but also hit 60 mph in just 2.6 sec. The Kawasaki engineers made a host of upgrades to the ZX’s powerplant, especially by adding 4mm to the engine’s stroke that ups displacement to 1441cc from 1352cc. In addition, the ZX-14R will make use of a higher compression ratio and new cam timing. Enjoy the photos of 2012 ZX-14R below!
