The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R has a good fan following in India, thanks to its hyper sport pedigree. It’s been on sale in India since 2013, however, the 2016 version promises to be a whole lot better.
The major updates are seen on the mechanical end with revisions done to the ECU and the inclusion of a new exhaust system so that this bike can meet the Euro IV emission without any drop in power. In terms of features, the motorcycle gets a new instrument cluster with LCD display. The ZX-14R also gets new front brake calipers, revised higher and closer handlebar with wider grips.
The 2016 Ninja ZX-14R is powered by the same 1441cc liquid-cooled engine that produces 200bhp and 210bhp with RAM air and maximum torque of 158Nm. The Japanese manufacturer claims that the suspension has been re-tuned for improved high-speed stability.
India Kawasaki Motors is selling the 2016 Ninja ZX-14R in completely-built-up (CBU) form. Its closest competitor, the Suzuki Hayabusa, is being assembled in India and is priced way lower than the ZX-14R.
