2006 Kawasaki ZX-14 (PICS)

As I have been pimpin out... I went to the Cycle World show. Got some pics of the new Kaw stead!

I tell you other than the front end looking like a alien and it being a big bike. It was pretty nice. The size would definately pay off in the comfort dept. Here's some pics guys...

What do you think?







Plus the show had this really cool cut away of the motor complete with some color lights to show the combustion motor working.

I did like, but in comparison to this, it had nothing! Just my opinion!

Man, I would, but I took 4 pictues. That one, 2 of Miguel's bike, and one of the Jordan ride. Every other time I would attempt to take a pic, when it would finally get clear and I was about to snap the pic, some chach would stroll up and hop on I got fed up tryin to take a pic fast, so I just left it in the car when I went out to lose my jacket.

I think the bike is long and the styling is just too busy for me. A little off topic, but Gas/Pickle, how was the show in its new location vs. Cobo?

Waaaaaaay better! Bigger, yet everything was set up together more, like all the bikes were together sort of. Didn't have the long cold annoying walk from your car to the door like at Cobo. It seemed to attract more vendors. Not such a pain to jump to a place to eat afterwards either, I now cobo is close to Greektown and all, but it's still a pain down there. Not to mention Rock is about 30 mins closer for me And the food was better!

One badazz bike, but it looks like doo doo. It looks like a concept bike from 1984.

As they stand right now I figure so. Suzuki is going bigger next year, though.

Side by side against the 'Busa (especially that special edition pearl white one)the ZX-14 looked very cheaply slapped together.

When you say bigger, do you mean engine size( cc) or in the physicial size ( longer)? More horsepower?

1500cc . .

That's what the rumors are, anyway, for whatever that's worth. The concensus is that Suzuki came out again this year with nothing but new graphics b/c they wanted to see exactly what Kawasaki was doing.

Does that busa have a new nose, it looks different, but it's hard to tell.

I'm almost cretin that the body remained the same.

Memo to Kawasaki: Fire the style department, promote the engineers. Hire hotties to adorn bikes.
Worst I've seen since the RF900 fairing. Just my 2 cents.
