The ZZR1400 (Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14 in North America) is a hyper sport motorcycle manufactured by Kawasaki and is currently their most powerful sport bike. It was introduced at the Tokyo 2005 show and released for the 2006 model year as a replacement for the ZX-12R. Its direct competitor in the hyper sport segment is the Suzuki Hayabusa.
The ZZR1400 is capable of accelerating from 0–60 mph in 2.5 seconds. The top speed is electronically limited to 186 mph (299 km/h). This limit has been in effect on both Kawasaki and Suzuki sport motorcycles since 2001 when both companies realized that the speed war between them would only serve to bring about government regulation.
The motorcycle was featured in season 10 of Fifth Gear on October 30, 2006.
Motorcycle USA road tested the bike in its October 10, 2006, issue and posted the following stock results:
60 ft.: 1.713 sec.
330 ft.: 4.349 sec.
1/8 mile: 6.447 sec., achieving 117.39 mph
1/4 mile: 9.783 sec., achieving 147.04 mph
