2005 Kawasaski KLR250

2005 Kawasaki KLR250

An experienced off-road motorcyclist knows the advantages of a good dual-purpose motorcycle: the lightweight chassis makes it easy to ride, the upright seating position is comfortable and perfect for scanning the horizon, and it’s inexpensive to own and operate. Best of all, a dual-purpose bike gives the rider the ability to simply ride from the garage to explore quiet dirt roads and out-of-the-way places, which is why the Kawasaki KLR250 is so much fun.

The KLR250 is powered by a four-stroke, single-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with dual overhead cams operating four valves for superior performance. Double engine counterbalancers keep the powerplant running smooth from idle to redline, and an automatic cam chain tensioner helps maintain more precise cam timing without maintenance.

The frame for the KLR250 is made of the same high-tech, high-tensile steel used in Kawasaki’s world-class KX motocross machines. A detachable, lightweight aluminum rear subframe simplifies maintenance by providing access to the airbox, carburetor and rear shock.

The KLR250 features an air adjustable front fork and Kawasaki’s UNI-TRAK® rear suspension, providing more than nine inches of travel at both ends to smooth the ride. The latter features adjustable spring preload and rebound damping. Helping to maintain good traction on pavement or dirt roads, the KLR250’s wheels are shod with universal tires, while a single front disc brake and rear drum brake help to ensure smooth, powerful stops.

KAWASAKI VULCAN® 2000 LIMITED STANDS APART FROM THE CROWD

It gives away none of the power of its Vulcan® 2000 brethren, yet the 2006 Vulcan® 2000 Limited benefits from added chrome and two-tone paint to make it a sure stand-out on the open road, or standing at curbside. Produced in limited numbers, this big cruiser is both an eye-pleaser and a performer that will amaze riders with its ease of handling.

The 2006 Vulcan 2000 Limited includes a color-matched chassis, plus the Vulcan insignia etched on the right side of the airbox to denote its special status. A high-quality, two-tone paint job on the tank and fenders gives it a “mood” of reserved elegance.

The Vulcan 2000 Limited also features more chrome on the engine, clutch cover, inner cam covers and transmission cover, compared to the Vulcan 2000. Plus, the chrome-plated wheels and a chrome-plated rear drive-belt pulley reflect even more of the bike’s strength and beauty when in motion.

With the addition of a longer, reconfigured sidestand, the Vulcan 2000 Limited even attracts the admiring glances of non-riders when it’s parked curbside.

Additional styling queues that put the Vulcan 2000 Limited at the forefront of cruiser design include a powerful four-bulb, projector-type headlight encased in a signature chrome Nacelle headlight.
Powering the Vulcan 2000 Limited is the largest V-twin engine in a mass-production motorcycle, boasting 125ci of displacement. It features a bore and stroke of 103mm x 123.2mm, forged pistons, alloy-steel connecting rods, huge 220mm flywheels, dual cams located within the one-piece crankcase and right-side pushrods actuating four valves per cylinder.
Notably, Kawasaki engineers chose to utilize a push rod design in order to reduce engine height, which directly contributes to the Limited’s low center of gravity and relatively low seat height. Plus, hydraulic valve lash adjusters automatically maintain zero valve clearance for smoother, quieter operation.

Cruiser enthusiasts will appreciate the Vulcan 2000 Limited’s classic V-twin sound thanks, in part, to the single-pin crankshaft, while dual counter balancers and rubber engine mounts keep it running smoothly.

To provide sharp throttle response at any rpm, the Vulcan 2000 Limited’s electronic engine control unit (ECU) manages electronic fuel injection with its dual 46mm throttle bodies and sub-throttle valves, as well as the iridium spark plug ignition system. The sub-throttle valves help provide the Vulcan 2000 Limited with a smooth, linear power band, while the highly sophisticated fuel injection system’s fine atomizing injectors deliver an ultra-fine mist of fuel/air mixture to the cylinders for greater combustion efficiency, increased power and optimum fuel economy.

The top quarter of the V-twin engine is liquid cooled, while temperatures for the bottom three-quarters of the engine are managed by stylish and highly functional cooling fins. Plus, the engine and transmission feature built-in oil and water pumps, with the transmission also serving as the oil tank.

The fuel injection system’s air cleaner is nestled between the cylinders, which feature a black matte finish, and the cooling fins are polished to a bright metallic shine. Dual exhaust pipes and mufflers emit a distinctive V-twin rumble, and include honeycomb catalyzers to reduce emissions.

A Hyvo primary drive chain transfers torque from the big V-twin engine to the five-speed transmission case, which houses a multi-plate wet clutch. To fully benefit from the Vulcan 2000 Limited’s advanced electronics, a gear position sensor in the transmission sends signals to the ECU, further enhancing fuel injection volume and ignition timing, and thus improving performance. Final drive to the rear wheel is provided by smooth, quiet and low maintenance belt drive.

The V-twin engine is utilized as a stressed member of the Vulcan 2000 Limited’s steel, double-cradle frame, which features a large-diameter, box-section single-tube backbone. Coupled to the frame is a simple but elegant triangulated rear steel pipe swingarm suspension with a direct-action single shock. The rear suspension provides 3.9 inches of travel, and includes spring preload and rebound adjustment. Up front, large 49mm forks provide precise steering feedback and 5.9 inches of travel.

Adding to its high-end status is the chrome instrument panel with its large-face speedometer; mounted on a stretched, 5.5-gallon fuel tank, the V-shaped panel keeps the rider informed with an LCD display and warning lamps. The bucket-type saddle with locking passenger seat complements the Limited’s long, curving silhouette while providing all-day riding comfort.

The Vulcan 2000 Limited rides on chrome 16-inch wheels with a 150/80 front radial tire and a huge, 200/60 rear radial tire. Dual 300mm front disc brakes with four-piston calipers and a single rear disc brake with two-piston caliper bring this big cruiser to smooth, powerful stops.

POPULAR VULCAN® 1600 NOMAD™ MAKES GETAWAYS AN EASY RIDE FOR TWO

When Kawasaki increased passenger comfort and added additional chrome to its 2005 Vulcan® 1600 Nomad™ – as if the extra engine displacement wasn’t enough – it was pleased by rider response to this elegant cruiser. The attractive and well-equipped Nomad returns to the line-up in 2006 in both two-tone dress and in “basic black” and brings with it that same promise of the beckoning open road.

Its 95ci V-twin engine not only smoothes out backroads and highways, but produces enough torque to gain a new appreciation for a well-outfitted cruiser.

The engine features a single overhead cam and four valves per cylinder. Hydraulic valve lash adjusters automatically maintain valve clearance for smooth engine performance, reduced noise and reduced maintenance, while automatic cam chain tensioners keep cam timing accurate with virtually no maintenance.

The digital fuel injection system feeds each cylinder the appropriate fuel mixture through dual 36mm throttle bodies. A separate intake tract for each throttle body provides smooth engine operation, and the top of each injector contains four small nozzles, with two aimed at each intake valve.

A 16-bit electronic engine control unit (ECU) features programming tailored specifically for the Nomad’s fuel injection system. Using readings from various sensors, it monitors engine coolant temperature, intake air temperature, atmospheric pressure, intake air pressure and throttle position to adjust the amount of fuel injected.

Attention to these engineering details provides the 1600 Nomad with the best balance of power and performance, so the rider has an abundance of torque for any riding condition.

Large engine mounts and a gear-driven engine counter balancer reduce handlebar and floorboard vibration, yet these features do not interfere with the engine’s distinctive V-twin rumble or power-pulse feeling from its single-pin crankshaft.

The 1600 Nomad’s steering geometry is designed so that the motorcycle feels more neutral at low speeds, as when maneuvering in parking lots.

The 1600 Nomad is endowed with chrome and comfort features: Chrome engine guards are standard and a thick passenger seat includes a backrest and aluminum grab bars. Floorboards for the passenger combine to make long-distance rides more comfortable and pleasurable.

Self-canceling turn signals, 5.3-gallon fuel tank, topped by an elegant electronic speedometer and LED odometer/tripmeter display let Nomad owners fully enjoy their ride. Streamlined hard saddlebags provide generous storage for those hard-to-resist overnight rides. Plus, standard features such as an adjustable windshield, plush air-assisted rear suspension and adjustable levers tailor the Nomad to its rider.

CONCOURS™ 14 AND CONCOURS 14 ABS: SPORT TOURING WITHOUT COMPROMISE

Supersport performance with long-distance touring comfort

The new Concours™ 14 and Concours 14 ABS combine breathtaking engine performance, impeccable handling and a comfortable riding position with clean, convenient shaft drive, locking hard luggage, an electrically adjustable windscreen and a host of other features to create the most impressive long-distance, high-speed machine on the market today.

An aluminum monocoque chassis, radial-mount brake calipers, inverted fork, and ram air induction are all features riders expect to find on top-of-the-line supersport machines. However, instead of riding a high-strung racetrack missile, they can enjoy these high-performance features on Kawasaki’s new Concours 14 sport touring motorcycles. They are the first representatives of an entirely new genre of high-performance motorcycle: the Transcontinental Supersport.

Because it’s a Kawasaki, the Concours 14 is naturally designed to do much more than just take a rider from point A to point B. Thanks to its sporting heritage, the new Concours 14 is not only an awe-inspiring road burner, it can also carve up mountain roads like a true supersport bike. For those riders who cross state lines the way others cross town, this machine offers more excitement than anything else in its category.

The Concours 14 may be a physically impressive machine, but as soon as riders flip the side stand up, they’ll be astonished at the bike’s lightweight feel. The confidence-enhancing ABS brake system (Concours™ 14 ABS) features radial-mount front calipers operated by a radial-pump master cylinder, for the superb control and powerful, reliable braking performance that continent-crossing sport riders expect. Belying its tourer-like appearance, the Concours 14’s phenomenally responsive handling characteristics make the other bikes in its category seem like transports by comparison. This provides the Concours 14 rider with a feeling of complete control for spirited, confident journeys.

In addition to an incredible level of sporting performance, the new Concours 14 has the functional touches of a Grand Touring machine. Features include KI-PASS (Kawasaki’s Intelligent Proximity Activation Start System), the first “smart” key ignition system in its class, and an accessory power outlet located near the cockpit for powering portable electronics, grip heaters and other accessories. There’s also an electrically adjustable windscreen, shaft drive and detachable, locking side cases, so the Concours 14 is always ready for a high-speed ride to the local hangout or that favorite spot… fifteen hundred miles away.

The Concours 14 is much more than a sportbike with tacked-on touring features; it’s an integrated high-speed touring system. Wind protection for rider and passenger is based on a supersport-style design philosophy, aerodynamically curving wind around the riders to reduce buffeting that occurs when wind curls around screens that simply “block” the wind. Additionally, maintenance chores on long-distance trips are minimized thanks to quiet and reliable shaft drive. Featuring a special four-link design, the Tetra-Lever shaft drive system significantly reduces driveline lash during sport riding and helps ensure smooth acceleration when exploiting the engine’s incredible power output. In fact, power delivery to the rear wheel is so smooth and so direct that it gives the same natural ride quality as a chain.

The Concours 14’s touring prowess doesn’t stop there. The included hard luggage features a slim, integrated design which mounts the cases closer to the machine’s centerline for excellent mass centralization. Sensors in the front and rear wheels monitor tire pressure and display this information on the instrument panel, giving riders peace of mind during two-up high-speed riding or when carving up a mountain road.

With all the equipment needed for safe and exciting long-distance riding mated to a decidedly supersport core, the new Concours 14 amplifies all the best riding features that motorcycling has to offer. Motorcyclists carry a driver’s license, but Concours 14 riders should bring their passports, too.

FEATURES:

Key Features:
– Most powerful production sport tourer
– Next generation monocoque aluminum frame
– Comfortable long distance riding position
– Low-maintenance shaft drive

1,352cc Four-Cylinder, DOHC Engine with Variable Valve Timing (VVT)
– Tuned to provide smooth power across a wide rev range
– Variable valve timing improves the engine’s flexibility and efficiency by altering the camshaft profiles to suit different rpm ranges
– Carefully planned engine design keeps it compact and narrow
– Chrome composite plated aluminum cylinder bores are lightweight, durable, and quickly carry heat away from the combustion chamber and piston for supreme durability under high loads

Gear-Driven Dual Engine Balancers
– Already in perfect primary balance, dual secondary balancers virtually eliminate unwanted vibrations for extremely smooth engine operation and enhanced rider comfort

Ram Air Induction
– Ram Air ducts produce a straighter path to the airbox for maximum intake efficiency
– This system takes cooler, high-pressure air, guides it through the air filter and into the engine for maximum power output

Digital Fuel Injection
– Throttle bodies are fitted with sub-throttle valves that are controlled by the ECU to provide smooth, precise response similar to constant velocity carburetors
– 32-bit electronic control unit works with dual throttle valve system to further enhance throttle response and control
– A digital computer feeds the engine exactly the amount of fuel it needs for cleaner emissions and maximum fuel economy

Digital Ignition
– Digital Timing Advance enhances low-and mid-range power
– Four individual spark plug-mounted ignition coils fire each spark plug independently to achieve the optimum timing for that cylinder at that instant
– ECU includes an idle speed control system for easier starting and warm-up

Radial Pump Clutch Master Cylinder
– Hydraulic clutch features a radial-pump clutch master cylinder for smooth and precise clutch engagement

Monocoque Aluminum Frame
– The frame is a hollow aluminum box that arches over the engine from the steering head to the swing arm pivot; it is narrow, strong, rigid and very light
– Engine is rigidly mounted to increase the monocoque’s torsional rigidity. Plus using the engine as a stressed frame member decreases the frame’s weight by approximately four pounds
– Engine positioned forward in the frame, wheelbase and front/rear weight balance were carefully designed to achieve high-speed stability and responsive handling
– Massive steering head casting contributes to frame rigidity

Radial-mount Petal-type Front Disc Brakes
– Radial mounted four-piston front brake calipers. Instead of mounting the calipers with threaded tabs cast near the top of the caliper, the radial design utilizes integrated mounting points at both the top and bottom of the caliper, with the mounting bolts inserted through the rear of the caliper instead of the side/front. This makes the caliper more rigid, which improves brake feel over a wider range of operation
– A separate brake pad is used for each piston. One large pad can deform with the heat generated by hard braking, resulting in a loss of brake feel at the lever. Individual pads provide increased cooling efficiency and can absorb more heat without deforming so they maintain consistent brake feel under extreme conditions
– Petal design front and rear brake rotors provide enhanced cooling and better warp resistance
– Radial-pump front brake master cylinder improves brake performance and lever feel

Tetra-Lever Shaft Drive
– Unique four-link design significantly reduces driveline lash during sport riding and provides smooth acceleration when exploiting the engine’s incredible power output
– Virtually maintenance free, the Tetra Lever system dramatically reduces routine maintenance requirements

Antilock Brake System (Concours™ 14 ABS)
– ABS brakes boost safety and rider confidence in low-traction conditions and may enhance evasive maneuvering in an emergency

Bodywork Optimized for Sport Touring
– Fairing design promotes smooth airflow around the rider and passenger with minimal buffeting
– Integrated, locking hard luggage offers plenty of storage, without disrupting the Concours 14’s style or performance
– Electrically adjustable vented windscreen
– Large, comfortable seat offers long-distance comfort for both rider and passenger
– Glove box mounted on the fuel tank cover

KAWASAKI’S 2007 NINJA® ZX™-10R COMBINES AWESOME POWER WITH AGILITY AND GRACE

Racetrack performance with real-world stability

It didn’t take long for Kawasaki’s original Ninja® ZX™-10R sportbike to earn a reputation for dominating horsepower and excellent handling. The second generation ZX-10R continues that domination, featuring a racetrack-focused chassis and more horsepower than any other open-class supersport. Street riders and backroad enthusiasts will also appreciate the ZX-10R’s solid stability and predictable handling, thanks to its superb engineering.

With excellent mid-range power and a screaming top-end, the ZX-10R’s ability to accelerate out of corners is aided by its linear power delivery and enhanced traction provided by its long swingarm. This makes it easier for riders to capitalize on the ZX-10R’s horsepower advantage.

Designed for the rider who feels at home in racing leathers, the ZX-10R delivers unmatched track performance. A short wheelbase coupled with a long swingarm gives the bike outstanding maneuverability and excellent rear wheel traction. Even more to the liking of experienced racers, the Ninja’s concave tank top and the relationship between pegs, handlebar and seat only magnifies its appropriateness for the track.

The ZX-10R shines in the upper speed ranges, thanks to a fairing, seat cowl, and dual under-seat exhaust system which are designed for slippery aerodynamics and a clean look that sets it apart from its competition.

When arriving at the next corner faster than the competition, the rider needs brakes that are up to the task. Not only does the ZX-10R offer impressive stopping power from its dual floating 300mm petal discs, radial-mount four-pad/four-piston calipers and radial-pump master cylinder; it also provides precise modulation and a consistent feel at the brake lever.

The ZX-10R features an adjustable, race-spec, twin-tube, Öhlins steering damper with relief valve. The twin-tube damper uses the second tube like a reservoir tank to help ensure consistent performance under demanding race conditions.

At its core, the Ninja ZX-10R is a motorcycle built for the accomplished rider who can fully appreciate its capabilities—whether put to the test at a racetrack, or merely the focus of bench-racing conversation. It is, by all standards, the embodiment of the ultimate superbike.

Ultra-fine atomizing fuel injectors aid combustion efficiency and power output
– Lightweight Denso radiator has tightly packed cores for optimum cooling
– A high-efficiency, liquid-cooled aluminum oil cooler uses specially designed internal fins to dissipate heat and cool the oil

Four-Valve Cylinder Head
– Compact valve train reduces cylinder head height
– Intake ports and coolant passages developed using flow analysis for efficient cylinder filling and more power, and maximum cooling efficiency
– Camshafts are carved from forged chromoly billet, which is more than one-half pound lighter than cast cams. The cams and tappets are treated with soft nitriding to prevent galling and seizing with the aggressive, high lift profiles
– Single valve springs with oval cross sections are light and lower to reduce overall cylinder head height
– Forged sintered aluminum spring retainers are half the weight of steel retainers and allow higher rpm

Forged Pistons
– Forged pistons are lighter, stronger and more heat resistant than cast versions. Flat-top design matches the compact combustion chamber and improves combustion efficiency

Ram Air Induction
– Central ram air duct produces a straighter path to the airbox for maximum intake efficiency and provides the mounting surface for the instrument panel, eliminating brackets and weight
– Flow analysis used to design efficient ducts to the airbox that also prevent water from reaching the air filter
– Compact airbox and air cleaner are highly efficient and contribute to the compact riding position

TCBI Ignition with Digital Advance
– High-speed 32-bit ECU processor provides precise engine management
– Spark plug-mounted ignition coils are compact and help reduce weight

Titanium Exhaust with Butterfly Valve

Optimum exhaust tuning is attained at all engine speeds to prevent blowback that can occur with high speed overlapping valve timing

Six-Speed Transmission
– The splines on the transmission shafts are barrel ground so the gears slide smoothly for improved shift action
– Close ratio transmission increases circuit performance
– A back-torque limiting clutch automatically disengages the clutch under hard braking and deceleration to prevent rear wheel hop during corner entry. Optional springs, spring retainers and shims are available to fine-tune the clutch for specific conditions

Aluminum Twin Spar Backbone Frame
– Combination of pressed and cast aluminum components are welded to form the twin-spar backbone-type frame. By combining cast and pressed pieces frame weight is kept to a minimum while still providing high strength and stability with responsive handling
– Twin-spar backbone design provides 600cc class width
– Die-cast, one-piece subframe is strong and light
– Chassis features optimum center of gravity for easy roll response, this is particularly important when riding through a series of esses or returning to vertical as the rider exits a corner

Uni-Trak® Rear Suspension
– Short, compact frame allows the swingarm to be longer, which makes it easier to control rear wheel powerslides
– Rear shock is fully adjustable for preload, compression and rebound damping. Ride height can be adjusted by adding/removing optional 1mm shims at the upper shock mount
– Equipped with top-out spring that allows the rear wheel to better follow the road surface when the rear end is light due to hard braking
– Small piggyback shock reservoir is designed to save weight

43mm Inverted Cartridge Front Fork

KAWASAKI NINJA® ZX™-14: THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL PRODUCTION MOTORCYCLE DOMINATES THE COMPETITION AT THE DRAGSTRIP AND ON THE STREET

Awesome power meets outstanding balance to deliver the ultimate ride

Dominant is a word often misused to describe products which don’t actually fulfill that promise. However, it is precisely the right word to describe Kawasaki’s Ninja® ZX™-14. Since its debut in March of 2006, this motorcycle has won every major magazine comparison test it participated in. Earning universal praise for massive torque, effortless power, stable handling and a comfortable riding position, the 1352cc Ninja ZX-14 has set the highest performance standard in the motorcycle industry.

The ZX-14 isn’t just a straight line wonder. It also excels with light, neutral handling and comfortable ergonomics which challenge dedicated sport touring motorcycles for rider comfort. Indeed, this most powerful of all Kawasaki-branded motorcycles was created to do everything right.

Just because a motorcycle has overwhelming power, doesn’t mean it has to be intimidating to ride. With electronics tuned to deliver a predictable spread of torque in low-gear/low-rpm situations, the Ninja ZX-14 inspires far more rider confidence than expected from such a powerful motorcycle. A twist of the throttle delivers a seamless spread of torque that is so linear, the “power band,” becomes irrelevant. Those that have ridden a ZX-14, marvel at a power delivery which makes it possible to pull away smoothly from a total stop in almost any gear.

The ZX-14’s chassis design is every bit the equal of its power plant. An advanced version of Kawasaki’s unique aluminum monocoque design, its frame is lightweight and very strong. By utilizing this frame technology, engineers were able to concentrate on delivering a slim, compact package.

Offering a very relaxed sport riding position, the ZX-14 is compact without being cramped, and its bars are positioned so riders don’t have to stretch to reach them. The narrow engine, monocoque frame, and fuel tank make it easy for riders to keep their knees close together in any riding conditions. Footpegs are low-set to give ample legroom and the low seat height and narrow seat front make it a cinch to plant both feet on the ground when stopped. Its comfort levels might make the rider think they are on a dedicated sport tourer, but one twist of the ZX-14’s throttle is all it takes to remind them they are on the world’s quickest, fastest and most powerful production motorcycle.

Kawasaki engineers and designers have created a motorcycle that turns its Ram Air and fuel-injected engine into the core of a powerful, torque-producing, aerodynamic stunner that will draw attention from onlookers whether on the road, or parked on the roadside.

When the rider is stopped, the motorcycle will be the center of attention. Because the monocoque frame goes over the engine and doesn’t protrude through the fairing, the fairing design lines are uninterrupted, giving it a smooth, flowing appearance from front to rear. Quadruple projector beam headlights adorn the ZX-14’s front cowl, with the outer lenses containing high beams and position lamps. Low beams are located behind the two center lenses. The turn signals are cleanly integrated into the fairing and rear cowl, and a LED tail lamp features a unique “V” design. Overall, the ZX-14’s aerodynamics remind users that Kawasaki is indeed an aircraft maker. This blending of form, power, and handling characteristics have delivered a motorcycle with appeal that extends far outside of its high performance audience.

All told, Kawasaki brought its engineering and design expertise to the forefront of motorcycle creation. The Ninja ZX-14 lives up to its Ninja heritage, and far surpasses the competition. The meaning of the word “dominant” has found its true definition.

FEATURES:

Key Features:
– Distinctive Ninja® styling
– Most powerful production Kawasaki motorcycle to date
– Next generation monocoque aluminum frame
– Comfortable riding position

1,352cc Four-Cylinder, DOHC Engine
– Tuned to provide smooth power across a very wide rev range while raising Kawasaki’s legendary horsepower standards to a new level
– Carefully planned engine design keeps it compact and narrow
– Chrome composite plated aluminum cylinder bores are lightweight, durable, and quickly carry heat away from the combustion chamber and piston for supreme durability at high power outputs

Gear-Driven Dual Engine Balancers
– Already in perfect primary balance, dual secondary balancers virtually eliminate unwanted vibrations for extremely smooth engine operation and rider support

Ram Air Induction
– Central Ram Air duct produces a straighter path to the airbox for maximum intake efficiency
– This system takes cooler, high-pressure air from in front of the fairing and guides it through the air cleaner and into the engine for maximum power output

Digital Fuel Injection
– 44mm Mikuni throttle bodies are fitted with sub-throttle valves that are controlled by the ECU to provide precise response and make DFI® performance smoother, with response similar to constant velocity carburetors
– 32-bit electronic control unit works with dual throttle valve system to further enhance throttle response and control
– A digital computer feeds the engine exactly the amount of fuel it needs for cleaner emissions and maximum fuel economy

Digital Ignition
– Digital Timing Advance enhances low-and mid-range power
– Four individual spark plug-mounted ignition coils fire each spark plug independently to achieve the optimum timing for that cylinder at that instant
– ECU includes an idle speed control system for easier starting and warm-up

Radial Pump Clutch Master Cylinder
– Hydraulic clutch features a radial-pump clutch master cylinder for smooth and precise clutch engagement

Next-Generation Monocoque Aluminum Frame
– Evolved from the ZX-12R, the frame is a hollow aluminum box that arches over the engine from the steering head to the swing arm pivot. It is narrow, strong, rigid and very light
– Engine is rigidly mounted to increase the monocoque’s torsional rigidity. Plus using the engine as a stressed frame member decreases the frame’s weight by approximately four pounds
– Engine positioned forward in the frame, wheelbase and front/rear weight balance were carefully designed to achieve high-speed stability and responsive handling
– Massive head pipe casting contributes to frame rigidity
– The monocoque section houses the air box and air filter in a space-saving design that actually simplifies air cleaner maintenance. Two screws hold a plate on the left side of the frame that allows air cleaner access
– The battery is also housed within the frame and has simple access through the back side of the frame
– The steering head and swing arm pivot areas are cast aluminum for superior strength and rigidity

Inverted 43mm Cartridge Type Front Fork
– Damping rates offer stiff initial action to resist front-end dive when braking
– Stepless damping adjustment improves suspension performance

Bottom-Link Uni-Trak® Rear Suspension
– Linkage rates provide linear suspension action
– The bottom-link design concentrates the weight lower in the chassis for a lower center of gravity, which makes the motorcycle more nimble

Radial Mounted Petal Front Disc Brakes
– Radial mounted four-piston front brake calipers. Instead of mounting the calipers with threaded tabs cast near the top of the caliper, the radial design utilizes integrated mounting points at both the top and bottom of the caliper, with the mounting bolts inserted through the rear of the caliper instead of the side/front. This makes the caliper more rigid, which improves brake feel over a wider range of operation
– A separate brake pad is used for each piston. One large pad can deform with the heat generated by hard braking, resulting in a loss of brake feel at the lever. Individual pads provide increased cooling efficiency and can absorb more heat without deforming so they maintain consistent brake feel stop after stop
– Petal design brake discs provide better cooling and warp resistance
– Radial-pump front brake master cylinder improves brake performance and lever feel
– Wheel rims feature center ribs which are slightly offset so tire balance weights can be located precisely along the wheel’s centerline.

Wind Tunnel-Designed Bodywork
– Since the monocoque frame goes over the engine the fairing is uninterrupted by protruding frame spars, adding to the extremely long and low styling. Both the front and rear turn signals are integrated into the bodywork and have clear lenses to enhance the appearance
– Quadruple projector beam headlights give the ZX-14 a distinctive upper fairing. The outer lights contain position lamps and the high beams, while the low beams are in the center lamps
– Lightweight Denso radiator with high-density cores provides maximum cooling efficiency

Full Instrumentation
– Dual analog speedometer and tachometer with white faces are easy to read
– Multi-function LCD digital display includes an odometer, two trip meters, fuel gauge, gear position indicator and a clock
– Programmable shift indicator lamp illuminates at pre-set rpm to signal rider upshift
– Programmable clutch engagement lamp illuminates at pre-set rpm to signal the rider to engage the clutch
– CAN (Controller Area Network) interface between the meter uses fewer wires while allowing a greater volume of information, such as estimated fuel mileage, to be exchanged
