KEY FEATURES

Short-geared Transmission

Short-geared Transmission

While the engine performance delivers significantly increased torque, short gearing care of a large 42T rear sprocket further accentuates the stronger acceleration.

Carrying Convenience

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.

Lightweight Wheels

Lightweight Wheels

The lightweight wheels offer significant weight savings. The front wheel is 360 g lighter and the rear wheel saves 1030 g, for a total reduction of 1.39 kg compared to its predecessor.

Strong and long Swingarm

Strong and long 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.

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.

Strongest accelerating production motorcycle on the planet

Strongest accelerating production motorcycle on the planet

Designed to settle the issue of supremacy in the flagship class once and for all, the ZZR1400's engine boasts an increased displacement and thorough engine tuning to deliver heady levels of power and unrivalled 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.

Fuel tank details

Fuel tank details

A depression in the fuel tank cover facilitates tucking in behind the screen. Machined finish on the fuel tank cap contributes to the high-quality image.

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.

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.

LED taillight

LED taillight

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

Quadruple Projector Headlamp

Quadruple Projector Headlamp

Aggressive design of the characteristic quadruple projector beam headlights contributes to the increased impact of the front cowling.

Multi-function Instrumentation

Multi-function Instrumentation

Both stylish and functional, the twin analogue-style speedometer and tachometer with dot-pattern faces add a timeless beauty to the cockpit. The dual dials are complemented by a multi-function LCD screen controlled by a convenient handle switch. Riders can select either black or white background colour for the digital display.

Sporty Suspension

Sporty Suspension

Stiff springs for both the front fork and rear suspension deliver a firm, sporty feel. Along with the springs, damping settings were also revised to suit the significantly greater output.

Gunfighter-style seat

Gunfighter-style seat

The gunfighter-style seat contributes to both design impact and ergonomics. Its sculpted shape provides hip support during strong acceleration. Slimmer at the front, it also facilitates the reach to the ground when stopped at lights.

TECHNOLOGY

ABS

ABS

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