The Kawasaki ZX1400 is Kawasaki's answer to the Suzuki Hayabusa's phenomenal success despite of Kawasaki's more suave and maneuverable challenger in the ZX1200. There should be no doubt that the raw performance of a ZX1400 is greater than a Hayabusa, but is it enough to challenge the huge support for the Busa? Only time will tell. You could say Kawasaki has built their whole reputation on building high performance bikes. The Kawasaki H1 and Kawasaki H2 gave Kawasaki their initial performance image, then they launched the Z1 which effectively defeated the Honda CB750K as reining speed king. Kawasaki's ZX-11 held the crown of world's fastest superbike for close to a decade. Being ram air inducted, digitally fuel injected and gear-driven balanced, this develops 154 Nm at 7,500 rpm and 203 hp at 9,500 rpm, so being competitive was clearly a priority

Accessory Paint Jobs

In 2007 Kawasaki began offering two accessory sets of bodywork for the ZX1400. Everything totaled up they cost about $3k.

2008

For 2008 expect small changes, possibly a performance increase to compete with the impeding 2008 Hayabusa.
