The ultimate in the hypersports class started by its great-granddaddy, the ZZ-R1100, the 1400 is pure Kawasaki. A bit on the chunky side, a bit whale-like, but a total missile. Later models get more toys and better brakes, and with 210bhp, that is A Good Thing. Unfortunately, the newer 14s are limited to 186mph (boooo!), but they get there quick enough. Loads of torque makes road riding a doddle, and pillions love the super smooth delivery. Assuming they’re strong enough to hold on under rapid acceleration.
