2017 Ninja ZX-14R


Ninja ZX-14R - The ultra Performance Motorcycle

The Ninja ZX-14R's ultra-powerful 1441cm3 inline four-cylinder engine puts it in a class all its own. Add in our most advanced electronics system, including traction control, ABS and power mode selection and with an innovative monocoque frame, and stunning bodywork, and the ZX-14R is a phenomenon that you must experience to believe.

Ram Air Induction

A central Ram Air duct feeds cool, high-pressure air from the front of the fairing in a direct path through the air cleaner and into the engine for maximum power output - as speed increases, so does the air pressure, effectively force-feeding the engine.


Sculpted by the wind, the Ninja ZX-14R's bodywork offers high aerodynamic performance that reduces drag, and contributes to stability and wind protection at highway speeds.

Sport Suspension

With firm matching springs and damping settings for both the front fork and rear suspension deliver a firm, sporty feel. Green alumite fork caps and black suspension adjusters on the 2017 Ninja ZX-14R.

LED Tail Light

More aggressive, larger-volume tail maintains the LED taillight and integrated rear turn signals of the predecessor. Image shows overseas model with optional accessories.

Lightweight Wheels

The lightweight wheels offer significant weight savings over those of the predecessor model.

Dominant Performance

4 mm longer stroke increases displacement of the powerful In-Line Four engine to 1,441 cm3. Bore and Stroke are now 84 x 65 mm.

Back-torque Limiter Clutch

Easily adjustable back-torque limiting clutch facilitates smooth downshifts and helps prevent rear wheel hop, which becomes more likely with the increased back-torque.

Strong Aluminium Swingarm

Gusseting on the swingarm increases rigidity to match the greater output. Swingarm is long to suit the final gear ratio.

6-Speed Transmission

While the increased engine performance already delivers significantly increased torque, shorter gearing care of a large rear sprocket further accentuates the stronger acceleration.

Attention to Detail

Sculpted design of the upper triple clamp complements the high-quality image of the cockpit area.

Fuel tank details

Machined finish on the fuel tank cap contributes to the high-quality image. High-quality sculpted rubber tank pad protector, provided standard, protects the finish of the fuel tank.


The gunfighter-style seat contributes to both design impact and ergonomics. Its sculpted shape provides hip support during strong acceleration. Slimmer at the front, it also facilitates the reach to the ground when stopped at lights.

Carrying Convenience

The Ninja ZX-14R features retractable luggage hooks that tuck in neatly at the rear of the front seat. These are complemented by two hooks on the passenger tail grip. Idealised hook placement (not too close together) enables large-sized items to be securely attached to the rear seat.

Multi-function Instrumentation

Features on the multi-function display include analogue-style speedometer, external air temperature, fuel gauge, gear position indicator, odometer, clock & trip meters. Numerous modes including current and average fuel consumption, range, battery voltage are controlled using a multi-function button located at the left handle. 2016 has two colour choices for the LCD screen black or white background. Stainless steel rims on the meters highlight the high quality.


More aggressive design for the characteristic quadruple projector beam headlights contributes to the increased impact of the front cowling.

ABS Brake System

310 mm diameter petal brake discs, Nissin radial-mount front calipers and a radial-pump brake master cylinder offer impressive braking performance and superb feel. Aluminium front disc inner rotors (Ø200 mm) reduce unsprung weight while ensuring ideal rigidity. A 250 mm diameter petal disc with twin-piston caliper slows the rear. Compact ABS system is standard on all Ninja ZX-14R models. ABS ECU programming based on test rider and customer feedback results in excellent ABS braking performance.


While the Ninja ZX-14R's mighty engine performance was intended to be experienced unfiltered, riders may elect to take advantage of the some of the advanced electronic riding aids provided to suit riding conditions or preference. Standard Equipment on the Ninja ZX-14R: ABS brakes Economical Ride Indicator KTRC (3 mode) - Kawasaki TRaction Control Power Modes

3-Mode KTRC (Kawasaki TRaction Control)

Three modes cover a range of riding conditions, offering either enhanced sport riding performance or the peace of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence. Riders can choose from three modes. Modes 1 and 2 prioritise maximum forward acceleration (like the S-KTRC system on the 2011-2015 Ninja ZX-10R). Mode 3 is set-up to provide rider reassurance by facilitating smooth riding on slippery surfaces. Riders may also elect to turn the system off.

Power Mode Selection

A choice of Full Power or Low Power modes allows riders to set power delivery to suit preference and conditions. Low Power mode limits output to approximately 75% of Full Power and uses a milder throttle response. (Reduction of both power and throttle response varies according to engine speed (rpm), throttle position and gear position.) A choice of Full Power or Low Power modes allows riders to set power delivery to suit preference and conditions.
