Here's what the folks at Kawasaki themselves have to say about their killer new monster street bike:
The new flagship. From legendary machines like the Z1 and GPZ900R to modern hyper-bikes like the ZZ-R1100, Kawasaki's flagship machines have set the performance standards that others have followed. This tradition continues with the incredible new ZZR1400, a machine which delivers as yet unheard-of levels of performance and excitement.
With nearly 200 horsepower on tap, this bike is every bit as fast as it looks! Maybe even faster...how about 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds? Yes, 2.5 seconds!
This is Tamiya's first new kit of a street-legal bike in five years! And they've captured all the details, from the stunning aerodynamic cowl to the big water-cooled four-cylinder engine. Fans of monstrous street bikes, rejoice!
