The Japanese motorcycle maker launched its most aggressive offering against the Suzuki’s Hayabusa in September 2013. The mighty Ninja ZX14R took the centre stage for the Japanese motorcycle maker. The bike was claimed to have an atrocious power rating of 200bhp, but it was capable of making about 10bhp more than claimed (according to Environmental Protection Agency test). The 2016 model will be launched soon and is expected to make 10bhp less than the present gen ZX14R, which is 199.9bhp.
The bike propels the 1441cc Four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, four-valve per cylinder, inline-four engine. But there is a change, unlike previous ‘oxidising’ catalytic converter the engine has a three-way catalyst which has resulted in the peak power decrement and reduction in carbon monoxide emissions. All these changes are reported in the US models, but it is expected that the European models will go through the same changes as well to comply with the Euro-6 emission rules. It is expected to be launched globally soon and will make way to Indian market just after that. Share your views with us in the comment section below.
