Do a search on TWF for zx14 or 14r or ninja 1400

We have heard some sketchy stuff on it that you could look at...

FWIW, they haven't released any info to the dealers yet. Here is what I can tell you...when I sat on it at the dealer show (no fluids) it felt about the same as a ZX12R, considering they have very similar frame designs and only a slightly larger motor I expect it will weigh in about the same or maybe a bit less.

The rumor going around was that they are shooting for 200 at the crank, not hard to believe, but it must have huge torque because the tach indicated a redline of 11,500.

I'll let you know more if they release anything (although it is usually all over the 'net by the time I get home).

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

The 10 and 14 are two totally different bikes. You must mean the 12. It is the predecessor to the new 14.

The 10 is a Super Sport while the 12 and new 14 are sort'of Sport Touring.
That's like comparing a GSXR 1000 to a Busa. Both are supper fast but intended for different task.

Nope, I really meant the 10 & the 14, he hasnt really considered the 12, he loves the look of the 10 but likes the power of the 14...he cant really make up his mind...i think he's a tourer at heart...

He probably would be happier with the 14 then.

555 lbs wet weight with a full tank of gas. 5.8 gallons at 7lbs per gallon =40.6 lbs. So about 514 lbs empty.

But that isn't the true dry weight... you still got anti-freeze, and oil... not to make up much more weight but believe me...the manufactures do it with no liquid..sometimes not even a battery.
