Some of us like to get out on the road and go somewhere, instead of making circles and end up at the first place we start....

ZX-14 2008 Press Introduction

"The bad news is that most of the refinements came from tweaking the exhaust system - the first thing you are likely to take off the bike when preparing the bike for the track."

We are waiting for a file from Kawasaki to add to the end of this story with specs that drag racers love. Until then, here is a little info to hold you over comparing the 2008 Model to the previous years:

More Low-End Torque and Power (Still doesnt hit as hard as the Busa off idle, but the smoothness is nice on the street.)
More Mid-Range Response (The bike is useless at the drag strip at stock height. Its like a big unicycle when the quicker opening flies let it breath!)
Higher Peak Horsepower--203 HP Claimed (with ram air, measured at the crankshaft). The conditions we saw at Fontana were horrible, and I still managed times close to the 08 Busa which I rode in near perfect conditions at Atco.
Revised - Cylinder Head
Revised - Intake Porting
Provides Optimum Flow Characteristics
Revised - Sub-Throttle Injectors
Increased Spray Angle from 15 to 20
Dispersing Atomized Fuel over a Wider Area
Increased Low-End Power and Torque
Improved Mid Range Response
Revised- Piston Profiles
Reduced Mechanical Noise
Revised Cylinder Head Cover
Secondary Air Ports Increased Approx. 20%
Increased Clean Air Flow into Exhaust System
Revised Air Switching Valve (ASV)
Handles Approximately 5% More Air
193 PS (Without Ram Air)
203 PS (With Ram Air)

MSRP $11,699 - Atomic Silver / Metallic Midnight Sapphire Blue
MSRP $11,999 - Metallic Flat Spark Black

We will add the full line of improvements soon.

Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength-
