The 2016 Kawasaki ZZR1400 Performance Sport


Kawasaki have given their ZZR1400 a series of upgrades to help combat imminent new European Euro4 regulations, without losing any of its incredible thrust.

Available as two models, the standard Kawasaki ZZR14000 and a ZZR1400 Performance Sport, the 2016 version uses new settings in the ECU and a revised exhaust system to help it meet the new emission regulations without any drop in the power figures – maintaining the motorcycle's gut – wrenching USP. The 1441cc engine kicks out a claimed 197 horsepower without any ram-air effect, or a gnat's earlobe over 207 horsepower with the full force of ram-air.

While getting the Kawasaki ZZR Euro-4 – compliant, Kawasaki have also given both models a bit of a refresh and spec boost. Both motorcycles get a new instrument cluster with high-visibility dials and a clear central LCD panel with a black / white reversible readout allowing owners to pick whichever works best with their eyes, or changing light conditions.
The higher-spec Performance Sport model gets a few more upgrades to shout about. Most obvious are the new Brembo M50 monobloc brake calipers – straight off the new – for – 2016 Kawasaki ZX-10R revealed not so long ago – combined with a Brembo radial master cylinder and stainless steel brake lines. With a kerb mass of 269 kilograms, 1 kilogram more than the base mode, and 200 horsepower on tap, there's a lot to be said for some serious anchors.

The Performance Sport model also gets an Ohlins TTX39 rear shock, tuned to suit the Kawasaki ZZR1400, plus a pair of elegant Akrapovic silencers.Tag: Kawasaki ZZR1400 1400cc Performance-Sport Euro-4 2016
