2013 ZX1400r

Does anyone know when the 2013 ZX14r will be released? In Australia that is.... I just lost a sale with the last 2012 green and black ZX14 in Western Australia. So now I'm waiting for the 2013 models to roll out. I can't find anywhere on any KAWASAKI website where they are talking about the 2013 ZX14 models yet.
I've only seen on one website/forum where they're talking about them but I think it's only speculation on what colours they will be for the new year.
I'm going to see what colours they will be, apparently one will be a blue and black one? If it's a loud blue like the green was them I'm sold, otherwise I might just get the 2012 black one, which a few shops still have. Might get it cheaper as well if the 2013 models start rolling out soon????


Thanks........

Red and a white for 2013

Lie2me has some insight as for the US colors and time available in 2013.

Please take that insight with a grain of salt. Those are the colors the local dealership(UAE) has ordered from the US spec bikes for 2013. What you ask for and what you get...could be FAR apart.

With that said, Kawasaki is having their 2013 launch next week...we will all know by then.

Ah great, next week it is then. I'll stop googling everywhere to try and see what they are until then

Cheers.

I actually just got a call from 'my friend'...

He will get 5 bikes total. 4 white, and 1 blue.

One white and one blue are called ZZR's...and they will have ABS. They will arrive in country mid-October.

Your guess is as good as mine, but I would guess that the zzr's are Eurospec....which means no ABS for the US? This is a shot in the dark, and this is all the information he has as of right now.

Depending on the tradeup loss, I may look at trading in my black for a white ABS....

Willie My fellow aussie I have some very destressing news for you Australia acording to my very reliable sources Will only get the Blue, Just blue no black no green just Blue...... There is a chance we will get a few of the Black/Green Limited edition ones but this is not confermed.

Now to how I know this . I have been waiting on the 2013 Myself before purchasing one I have a friend who is dealer principle in a Kawa dealership
I was with him when he rang his rep from Kawa australia and the above is what he was told while I was there......only Blue.....

Another dealership I rang said the same thing.... Only Blue..... This is the only time you will ever hear me say .... It sux to be aussie......

What I have been told is the Black with Green strips is a special Limited Edition which the Kawa Rep says may or may not reach aussie shores
If it does reach us there will only be a few.....

And until you mentioned it I never looked that hard at L2M avatar... But your right very cool

Thanks, I had a red zx14 so it was a red squid with the same eyes. Black ninja...with 6 eyes seems a little more fitting. lol

My new zx14

Yes thanks all, in Australia all we are getting "is" the blue one, very DARK blue. Luckilly for me, blue is my fav colour. So my brand new ZX14 is sitting in my garage now
Only picked it up yesterday the 19/09/12. Looking forward to some nice riding weather and getting used to the bike.
I've ordered the black double bubble screen, and am trying to get a good deal on the Two Brothers racing pipes, (heaps cheaper from the US/eBay) than what my local dealer can supply them for in Oz.
That will be it, I don't want to go overboard with his beast. It's 99% perfect as is......

Oh yeah, apparently Oz will get the limited edition "green" ZX but not until 2013....But I couldn't wait for then

Cheers, not wrong. I just had my first little ride on it. I did roughly a 160km round trip with a mate who was on his Honda Blackbird.
Bloody love it.....Nows where I say, I've been riding Harley's for the last 8 years haha Now I'm back on a sports bike, I don't think I'll look back.

This is it at the moment, stock as. As you can see, it's a little hard to see that it's blue. But in the bright sun, it's an awesome blue.....
