I agree, went from sitting on the bike to sitting in the ZX14 which feels similar to the Harley Vrod I test rode not too long ago.

Got a new 0-mile 2013 (non ABS) Sat 5/11 to add to (replace?) my '04 Honda RC51. Only up to 31.1 miles since the rains came

I was looking for something more comfortable, and newer, than my RC. I knew from all I'd read that I'd probably really like the big ZX. Nope ... I friggin' love it! And I can't even exceed 4K miles yet! Compared to my RC this thing rides like a Caddy! And the power! And the smoothness! And the digital display! Bells! Whistles! WOW!

ZX14R, that white looks good on the bike, over here (Aust.) we get a special edition white that comes with gold flame graphics, personally I don't like them and would remove them if I had one. Looks clean!

Thanks, Don. Yeah I've seen it ... the Special Editions Ohlins I think it's called(?) ... I too would remove the flames, and gold isn't my favorite color, which is what the wheel color would still be. I could live with it, though ... or trade 'em out for some blacks ones.

Do not buy a ZX14R. Do not do it. It is a dangerous fool hardy proposition at best, with a substantial chance of tragedy...Don't Do It!......

I just bought a 2015 Special Edition Ohlins and I'm loving it. I'm even loving the look of it. All my bikes are black but I had planned on removing the flame graphics until I saw the bike in the flesh for the first time and thought they looked pretty good.

Whats The Differences - 14, 14R & Monster

I just bought my first Kawi. In fact, I won't even have it until the end of January. I bought a used ZX-14 Monster edition. Is that a 14R as well? My belief is the best performance modification is an ecu flash tune. What do you think?

I am confused if the Monster edition is something different than the 14 or the 14R. Otherwise I'm assuming it's a 14R. Glad I could make you laugh. You have been very helpful, thank you! BTW: It was the 1441 cc that I wanted. I guess the "R" is only a letter in my case.
