The 'R' Designation Equals More Race Winning Power and More Refinement for the Ultimate Open-Class Sportbike

It's gotta be ugly competing against the ZX™-14 year after year. When it arrived on the big-bore sportbike stage in 2006, the big Ninja® blew everyone's minds – owners, journalists and competitors – with its incredible thrust, sport-tourer comfort, agile handling and aerodynamic full-coverage bodywork. Continuous refinement has kept the 14 a step ahead of the competition, all while filling enthusiasts' face shields with wild, ear-to-ear grins.

Fortunately for Kawasaki fans (and unfortunately for the competition), there's no let up for 2012. Not only is the newly R-designated Ninja ZX-14R massively more powerful, it's also almost entirely new, with more of the character, design excellence, and finesse you've come to expect from Team Green™ – the company that's been building legendary open-class motorcycles for more than 40 years.
