Yesterday like today, the Kawasaki 1400 ZZR fact part of a race which almost disappeared today from the world motorcycle: ultra-powerful super-bombers.
If there remain only two about it today (this Coffee and Suzuki 1300 GSX-R), they are not less emblematic figures, last vestiges of a worship to the power and disproportion. The firm of Akashi could have been satisfied to leave it such as it with the catalogue until expecting a soft extinction…But not. The Kawasaki 1400 ZZR is a monument at Coffee, and this new version wants to be more strengthened even, more succeeded even, even more exceptional.
At Kawasaki 1400 ZZR exit, its powerful silhouette and its feverish glance hustled world well. Coffee improved a little all that to give him more an impetus, more dynamism, without really touching with the general line. Except its facies which becomes less difficult while gaining in aggressiveness. He threatened with the grace of a bored shark-pilgrim of eyes of tarantula; he threatens today with the seigniory of a large white shark (Carcharodon Carcharias). One will pay less attention to more projecting hearing of ventilation, those improving however thermal dissipation of the engine. When with the exhausts, impossible to pass to with dimensions so much their volume expanded.An altogether summary stylistic evolution, whereas in lower part, the Kawasaki 1400 ZZR was largely re-examined.
And what we look closely on this kind of machine, it is the engine. Already very strapping man, Kawasaki 1400 ZZR have 4 cylinders gained 4 mm of race per cylinder (from 61 to 65 mm) to display a cubic capacity in rise of 89 Cm3. With a block of 1441 Cm3, useless to specify you the monstrous couple that limps it will have to digest. Coffee besides grafted its recent technology innovations and adapted the mappings for any booster rocket over there inside. With this enormous block, this new opus of the Kawasaki 1400 ZZR asserts the colossal figure of 200 horses – and that goes up even to 210 with the admission of Air Force. An alarming figure in the absolute, but which leaves us however somewhat on our hunger. But why ye gods?
It is undoubtedly an enormous power… Because with its Cm3 in more and technological progress, one hoped that the monster would gain much more, history to durably engrave a supremacy in the figures. However, it displays the same power as a ZX- 10 R, cubing however 30% of cubic capacity of less. The Kawasaki 1400 ZZR will make largely more badly with the back tire with its colossal couple of 16.4 mkg. This last benefitted well from the increase in cubic capacity, with a profit of 1.4 mkg. Across the figures, the Kawasaki 1400 ZZR is nevertheless allowed to snuff competition and to throw into a panic the fans of 400m DA: it goes down under the 10 seconds to this exercise and asserts the planetary record of acceleration for a motorcycle of series.More couple everywhere, more power with means and high modes, and to channel all that, the control of traction (KTRC) selectionnable on 3 modes and 2 choices of cartography of injection: full power or low power with 75% of potato – judicious under the rain but weak in France, where will look you malignant with 75 horses on such a machine.
The Kawasaki 1400 ZZR is one of the very rare motorcycles profited from a framework monoshell out of aluminium. To box additional Watts of the large subsidiary shell, this one was re-examined, just like the oscillating arm. New adjustments of suspensions are supposed to support the sportsmanship of the machine without sacrificing stability at high-speed.Some updates is to be announced to the instrument panel and, it is sufficiently practical to be to announce, the functions of screen LCD ravel via a control unit fixed at the handlebar.
