I have been riding off road for 25 years, have owned three 600cc sport bikes and have ridden many other types of sport bikes. I am fairly knowledgeable about motorcycles. The ZX14 is a great "do everything" motorcycle. The seating position is the perfect combination of sport and comfort. 300-mile sport rides are no problem on this bike. Also, my wife finds the passanger seat to be quite comfortable. The bike is very sport capable as well. The bike is big and heavy, but it carries its weight very well. The suspension is great and the frame flex is not noticable while sport riding on the street. I have never had a problem with cornering clearance. The brakes are great. The power is very linear and smooth. Shifting is just a bit notchy, and the seat is just a bit hard. The head light is weak on the low beam, but great with the high beam on. The bike does run a bit hot in traffic, but nothing crazy. Heat coming off the engine is not a problem. The only aftermarket items that I would reccomend are a Muzzy radiator fan to cool the temperature a bit more quickly and an improved headlight bulb. The ZX14 is like a rocket powered Cadillac with upgraded suspension. Overall, I am very happy with this bike. Knowing what I now know - I would purchase this bike again.

I have a 2006 Black ZX14 and love it. I have attached a trailer to her and she pulls it with no effort. It has not only Preload, but dampening adjustments to control the load. The only concern I have is that the bike is so light I have to be careful in the rain. The only real improvement I had to make to make it an all-day ride was to change the seat to a Concours 14 seat. It just bolts right on with a minor change to the latch. I also raised the handlebars almost two inches due to my height.

I purchased my Diablo Black metallic 2007 Kawasaki ZX-14 with 12.3K miles on it in Peoria, AZ about 2 weeks ago. I am back on a sportbike after being a Harley enthusiast for the past 15 years. The last sportbike I'd owned prior to purchasing this one was a 1991 Kawasaki ZX-10 while stationed in Holland in the military. In 1991, the last year the ZX-10 was produced in that original form, it was the world's fastest production streetbike with a top speed of 165 mph. My, have times changed! I rode my new toy over 3 hours back home after purchase. I fell in love immediately! The bike has loads of power, but yet, is very smooth on delivery. It's easy to flick around in heavy traffic or with slow speed parking lot manuevers. I admit that I've always been more of a Kawasaki fan, but have owned all brands. This bike has the comfort, looks, and performance that I was looking for this time around. This past Sunday, I rode 125 miles through the desert mountains with four other friends. I must say...I am even more impressed now. The bike does not feel big or heavy while riding the twisties. It does everything effortless! I am going to add some Corbin Beetle Bags, raise the bars a bit, and change the peg position to make this an even more capable mile eater. Ride on, Kawasaki! You are definitely letting the good times roll again for this guy!

I read all the reviews and listened to all street hype before deciding to purchase this bike. I have about 25+ years riding experience and and have planted my fat ass on quite a few bikes but this one is the fastest and most reliable one I have ever ridden.

Well I am very pleased so far with the ZX-14. Like the previous reviewer I too am the proud owner of a 1999 Super Blackbird. They are simlar in many ways.

Well I am very pleased so far with the ZX-14. Like the previous reviewer I too am the proud owner of a 1999 Super Blackbird. They are simlar in many ways. I can't ride a a bike with bars below the top of the triple tree but I am an addict for power. These being 2 of the 3 most powerful bikes made, the comparisons are inevitable. Both of these bikes I own are completely stock.T he ZX-14 feels lighter, has a lot more power than the blackbird and although it doesn't look like it, it is a lot more comfortable than the blackbird for my build. The engine seems to run a little more raw so to speak than the blackbird. The 14 has an awesome set of brakes but if you're used to a blackbird there is no linked braking so it takes some practice to get back into stopping correctly. The only downside to the 14 that I have noticed is fuel mileage. I can't seem to get better than 34 mpg. The Honda is much better in this respect. But hey let's face it no one buys a bike like this because they are worried about gas mileage. Mine is the midnight blue pearl color and gets many compliments from other riders and people in general. I never thought I would part with the blackbird but the 14 is a much more advanced version of the same style of bike. So I think now is the time for me to part ways with the Honda.

After 7 previous motorcycles, two of them Black Birds ('97 & '99), I thought you just couldn't get better. Riding the ZX-14 was like putting on a pair of old roller skates after not doing so for several years. It all comes back to you. This bike feels like a much smaller, lighter machine than it is. It is very maneuverable, and responds to the lightest input. I put 2000 miles on this bike in the first three weeks of ownership. I've ridden in the rain and the dry weather, and can say that this motorcycle inspires confidence. One ride was over 780 miles round trip, with no ill effects. Whether it's long country roads or in tight traffic, the braking is smooth and reliable and the throttle response is fantastic. It's a very relaxing ride. I've ridden this bike almost every day since I bought it because it's just so smooth and fun to ride. Overall, this is a great ride! It's easy to maneuver, easy to stop and easy to get out of its own way. If you don't like being near another vehicle, just tweak the throttle. There's plenty of power! I can't wait to ride in the Toys for Tots and Elf Louise Rides before Christmas!

It is definitely a head turner.
