2006 Kawasaki ZX-14 Ninja

This is the first year of Kawasaki's 1400 class. This ZX is modified enough to release the power; and has few contenders that compete with it for an all out straight line street brawl. This article is from cycleworld.com -

Dollar for dollar, pound for pound, pony for pony, the Kawasaki ZX-14 is one of motorcycling’s finest all-around streetbikes, with comfort, power and speed in spades. That is the consensus CW editors reached after living with a Passion Red 2006 model for the past two years.

Kawasaki’s reply to the Suzuki Hayabusa, the ZX-14 won Best Open Streetbike honors in our annual Ten Best vote-getting right out of the box and again the following year. “Big performance generates big headlines,” editors noted in 2007, “and no motorcycle created more of a stir last year than the ZX-14.”

Rooted in those headlines were the big Kawi’s chart-topping test numbers: 2.5-second 0–60-mph acceleration, a 9.8-second quarter-mile, 170.2 horsepower at 9670 rpm, 103.8 foot-pounds of torque at 7770 rpm and a top speed (electronically limited) of 186 mph. But as the back-to-back award-giving indicates, the ZX-14 is hiding more behind its full-coverage fairing and monocoque aluminum frame than just exhilarating get-up-and-go and eye-opening maximum velocity.

Daily commuting and long rides along California’s central coast spawned praise for its smooth engine, moderate ergonomics and sport-touring capabilities. Underseat bungee hooks provided secure tie-down points for luggage capacious enough to allow multi-night stays near Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca for the U.S. Grand Prix or with extended family farther north in San Francisco.

From: www.cycleworld.com KAWASAKI NINJA ZX-14 – BEST USED BIKES

Best Open-Class Streetbike, 2006 & 2007 Ten Best Awards. Years Manufactured: 2006 to present
MSRP new: $11,499 (2006) to $13,599 (2011)
Blue Book retail value: $5940 (2006) to $9645 (2010)
Basic specs: A fully faired sportbike built on an aluminum monocoque frame fitted with a beast of a fuel-injected, 1352cc inline-Four engine that made 170.2 rear-wheel hp at 9670 rpm and 103.8 ft.-lb. of torque at 7770 rpm.

That allowed the 531-pound (dry) ZX-14 to post the quickest quarter-mile run any Cycle Worldtestbike had ever posted up to that point: 9.78 seconds at 146.4 mph. The big Ninja also rocketed to an electronically limited top speed of 186 mph.

Why it won: The ZX-14 impressed and amazed with its Jekyll-and-Hyde personality. Just tooling around town or cruising the highway, it’s as docile as a puppy, with a buttery-smooth engine, a high level of comfort and rock-steady stability. Give the twistgrip a healthy yank, though, and the Kawi morphs into a gawdawful-fast monster that accelerates so hard and so relentlessly that everything around you suddenly becomes a mayhem of colors streaking past in an indistinguishable blur.

Yeah, that fast. From the 2006 Ten Best story: “The 14 is surprisingly agile within its weight class, making it at ease in the urban jungle and on the open road. All this and savage acceleration when there’s a need to show teeth.”

This ZX has:
4 into 1 Muzzy header
Muzzy Teflon coated silencer
DynoJet Stage III
rear tire: Dunlop Roadsmart 190/50ZR17
front tire: Dunlop Roadsmart 120/70ZR17

Have put this bike at 163-and it was still accelerating.
