Why choose the Kawasaki ZZR 1400?

The Kawasaki ZZR 1400 is one of the fastest bikes on the market and its dual exhaust gives that away almost immediately.

Under its fairings, the ZZR comes equipped with one of the best engines ever seen on a bike and, with a range of electronic systems and rider aids, it’s well equipped too.

It’s also surprisingly affordable too, and it’s quick. Did we mention that? Of course, there are more things to life than speed and the ZZR 1400 is pretty good in terms of reliability and handling too.

Rider comfort is good but the first item i added was a pair of handlebar risers to lift the bars by 30mm. Then i changed the screen to a Double-Bubble, to raise the air-flow at speed, from my lower chest to my shoulders. These two modifications made a huge difference in rider comfort when cruising at motorway speeds, or 'scratching'. on country roads.

One modification I would dearly like to benefit from, is that the fan stays on when needed, after the ignition is switched off;
if the engine is hot. e.g. If i have a had slow ride due to heavy traffic, even on a mild day, the engine temp can easily be up in the 90's. I stop the bike and the fan is running. I then switch off the ignition and this also cuts off the fan. After a few minutes, if i turn the ignition back on, the fan cuts in immediately before I have started the engine. This tells me the engine is too hot and needs air circulation.
On my previous m/c, a Triumph Sprint 955i, under similar circumstances, if the engine was v.hot, the fan would continue to run after the ignition was switched off, until the temp was brought down to a desirable level.
Having the fan run-on when needed, gives better re-assurance that damage due to excessive heat is not going to occur. On the ZZR, I am left in doubt and uncertainty after switching off the ignition, when the engine is obviously v.hot.

This is one of the best bikes you'll ever own. It handles like a 250 and motors like a cruise missile. It's a bike bike and it's b why but you only really notice if y I have to move it about slowly or in tight spaces. Otherwise you can ride it all day. I rode round the north of Scotland and spent 9 hours in the saddle. No problem.
Great bike. Only gripe and it's a motorbike thing not a zzr thing - replacment parts are seriously expensive.
