Brembo Brakes with ABS
The new Ninja ZX-14R ABS 2018 Kawasaki Powerful Heavy Bike comes with the standard ABS quite similar to the one used in Ninja H2. An all-new radially attached 4-piston from front brakes calipers comes as standard. The front section consists of Brembo M50 cast monoblock calipers with four opposed 30 mm piston that clamps on 320 mm Brembo disc for better braking force. The outer edges of the discs have especial groves down the center edges that help in dissipating heat.
An all-new Brembo radial-pump master cylinder and new reservoir are calibrated for the crankshaft to require tiny movement to achieve a strong braking force. The rear brake comes with a caliper having two 32mm pistons that clamp a 250mm disc. The new stainless steel braided brake lines contribute to a direct feel. The new smoke color brake and clutch master cylinder reservoirs, brake anodized reservoir bracket and other added accents help enhance the riding experience.
The new Ninja ZX-14R ABS 2018 Kawasaki Powerful Heavy Bike comes with extremely powerful that ensures ultra-smooth power delivery in the entire mid- to the high-rpm range. It also helps convert the massive power into the forward momentum with minimal wheel slip with the help of Kawasaki’s traction control system (KTRC). The long-stroke engine helps deliver massive torque under all rpm plus it gives more power in mid to high rpm with strong acceleration from 4000 rpm.
The new cylinder head has a milled combustion chamber that boosts compression for outstanding performance. The new forged piston is strong but light in weight and comes in skirt design to alleviate stress. The cooling jet system of the piston sprays oil to the underside of the piston for excellent cooling and better performance. The latest intake ports are hand polished to ensure better flow while the large diameter exhaust port helps understand. The new wide bypass holes between the chrome-composite plated cylinders reduce pumping loss that helps in increasing performance.
Advanced electronics have been used that helps in giving outstanding performance. All the electronic packages have been enlisted below;
- KTRC (Kawasaki Traction Control System)
- Power Mode
- Ram Air Induction
- Digital Fuel Injection
- High-Flow Exhaust System
The new Ninja ZX-14R ABS 2018 Kawasaki Powerful Heavy Motorcycle is available with heat and surface treatment under all gears to ensure more excellent durability and wear resistance. The final gearing enhances the strong acceleration while the back-torque limiter slipper clutch prevents rear-wheel hop thus helps in protecting the drivetrain.
The new 2018 Ninja ZX-14R ABS Kawasaki Powerful Heavy Bike comes with a frame with a hollow aluminum box that arches over its engine from the steering head to the swingarm pivot. The overall structure is kept narrow, rigid, strong and light. The engine is rigidly attached to the frame to increase the monocoque’s torsional rigidity. Furthermore, the engine is used as a stressed frame member that decreases the frame’s weight by four pounds. The engine positioned in the frame, front/rear weight and wheelbase weight balance were carefully designed to achieve better high-speed stability and responsive handling. The monocoque section houses the airbox and air filter in a space-saving design that simplifies air cleaner maintenance.
The overall body design has been wind-tuned designed to ensure that the final bodywork is ergonomically perfect. The unique four-headlight design makes the motorcycle looks fantastic from the front section. The single-seat cover and aggressive tail section make the bike unique. An all-new inverted 43 mm cartridge-type front fork ensures superior damping force.
The instruments enhanced with metal rings around the speedometer and tachometer with the Flying K logo in the center provide full information to the rider. The multi-function button on the left handlebar switch allows the rider to scroll through the meter function without removing the hand from the handlebar. There is an ambient temperature gauge for added convenience and fuel range readout.
