KEY FEATURES

New seat

New seat

Plush, broad and supportive, the ZZR1400 seat is a lesson in riding comfort for both pilot and passenger.

New headlamp

New headlamp

"Look out I am here!" says the puposeful headlamp design, ignore at your peril.

Stronger, Longer Swingarm

Stronger, Longer Swingarm

Gusseting on the swingarm increases rigidity to match the greater output. Swingarm is 10 mm longer to suit the new final gear ratio. (This also contributes to the slightly longer wheelbase.)

Aerodynamics

Aerodynamics

Sculpted by the wind, the ZZR1400’s bodywork offers high aerodynamic performance that reduces drag, and contributes to stability and wind protection at highway speeds.

Multi-function Instrumentation

Multi-function Instrumentation

Brushed aluminium bezels and a multi-function display ooze quality from every pore.

LED taillight

LED taillight

More aggressive, larger-volume tail maintains the LED taillight and integrated rear turn signals of the predecessor.

 Stronger, Shorter-geared Transmission

Stronger, Shorter-geared Transmission

While the increased engine performance already delivers significantly increased torque, shorter gearing care of a larger rear sprocket (41T >> 42T) further accentuates the stronger acceleration.

Dominant Performance

Dominant Performance

4 mm longer stroke increases displacement of the powerful In-Line Four engine to 1,441 cm³. Bore and Stroke are now 84 x 65 mm. Compared to its predecessor, this engine offers more torque at all rpm, and substantially more power in the mid-high range. Acceleration from 4,000 rpm and up is notably stronger.

Fuel tank details

Fuel tank details

The capacious tank marries with the distance ability of the mighty ZZR1400, and a protective tank-pad comes as standard.

Sportier Suspension

Sportier Suspension

Stiffer springs for both the front fork and rear suspension deliver a firmer, sportier feel. Along with the new springs, damping settings were also revised to suit the significantly greater output.

Strongest production motorcycle

Strongest production motorcycle

Designed to settle the issue of supremacy in the flagship class once and for all, the ZZR1400's new engine boasts an increased displacement and thorough engine tuning to deliver heady levels of power and unrivalled acceleration. The step up in performance over its predecessor is apparent, with more available torque across the rev range and substantially higher upper-end power.

Attention to Details

Attention to Details

Sculpted design of the upper triple clamp complements the high-quality image of the cockpit area. On the special graphics edition, the upper triple clamp features contrasting sections: painted finish vs. hairline finish with a clear coat.

Series-first Back-torque Limiter

Series-first Back-torque Limiter

Easily adjustable back-torque limiting clutch facilitates smooth downshifts and helps prevent rear wheel hop, which becomes more likely with the increased back-torque.

Lightweight Wheels

Lightweight Wheels

All-new wheels offer significant weight savings over those of the predecessor. The front wheel is 360 g lighter and the rear wheel saves 1030 g, for a total reduction of 1.39 kg.

Increased Carrying Convenience

Increased Carrying Convenience

The ZZR features retractable luggage hooks that tuck in neatly at the rear of the front seat. These are complemented by two hooks on the passenger tail grip. Idealised hook placement (not too close together) enables large-sized items to be securely attached to the rear seat.

Sculpted styling

Sculpted styling

Thematic quadruple fins of the side fairings are maintained, although their design is more 3-dimensional, contributing to a more dynamic image of the side of the bike.

TECHNOLOGY

ABS

ABS

ABS (Anti-lock Brake System) ensures stable braking performance by preventing wheel lock during braking.
