Kawasaki refines ZZR1400 for 2016
Kawasaki’s powerhouse flagship bike, the mighty ZZR1400, gets upgrades to both its standard and Performance Sport models for 2016.
The massive 1,441cc engine kicks out the same 207bhp @ 10,000rpm (with RAM air, 197bhp without) but with revisions to the ECU and exhaust system, the bike now meets Euro 4 emission regulation.
According to Kawasaki’s website, the standard model will be priced at £11,799 which reflects a £100 increase in the 2015 model while the Performance Sport model sees a £700 price decrease down to £13,399.
A new instrument cluster features high-visibility dials and LCD displays using a dot-pattern background, plus black/white interchangeable displays for easy reading in both day and night time.
Performance Sport model gets new Brembo M50 monobloc brake calipers, which combined with a Brembo radial-pump master cylinder and stainless steel brake lines. The model also features an Ohlins TTX39 rear shock absorber with settings unique to the ZZR1400, plus a pair of awesome Akrapovic silencers.
