The Kawasaki Ninja ZX14R is a rage since its launch in the year 2006. This is the biggest displacement offering in the Ninja range of super sports motorcycles from Kawasaki. It’s also the most powerful Ninja ever built by the company. The 2012 model is one of the fastest production bikes on sale in the market.

Kawasaki has turned the 2012 Ninja ZX14R into a sheer powerhouse by increasing the displacement to 1441cc. It now comes with an updated fuel injection system and advanced catalyzer for lower emission. It has now reshaped combustion chambers and reinforced cam chain in the camshafts.

A major change in the 2012 Ninja ZX14R  is an all new oil jet cooling system and an improved engine compression ratio of 12.3:1 along with the 2mm thicker crankshaft main journals. These changes offer the Ninja more power in the entire rev range and make it most powerful motorcycle on the track. Apart from it, the 2012 model has a 10mm longer swingarm, 43mm inverted fork and adjustable single shock and slipper clutch and a KTRC traction control and ignition system.

It comes with three riding options the full power, medium power and a third option for low traction conditions which can be operated through the toggle switch mounted on the handle bar easily. Apart from the technical changes there are noticeable changes in the design of the 2012 model. The headlight and front stance is now more aggressive but the side paring styling is been retained which is a good move by the engineers and the designers.

It’s time we all started thinking green. The 2012 Kawasaki Ninja 650R is expected to be in India by the Month of April. A lot has changed in the motorcycle and it will surely look a lot different than the Ninja 650R that we all saw in the year 2011. I am sure with all its new gizmos and gadgets it’s going to cost a bit more than the outgoing model.
