Ok I'm going to jump into this! I have also been thinking for a while now about getting a zx14r, probably a 2012 model in the green colour. I have even researched all the usual mods and a few less common ones, adding up costs, re-questioning myself on whether I really want it!
Back in '08 I traded my '00 12r for a new 14, had it a year/18,000kms, sold it and went back to a '00 12r. This time I am intending to keep the 12 and get the 14r. I know it means I will probably ride the 12 less, but I have considered either bringing it back to pure stock or even de-registering it and making it a track bike, I have done several Philip Isd track days on the 12r and would love to make it more dedicated to that purpose. Of course there is a powerful force that cannot be ignored which influences the destiny of all my endeavors and desires (wife) which must be appeased before I can realize my dreams!
Cobras67, naturally enough being on a Kawasaki forum I would recommend the 14r, but if only for the fact you already have a Harley so why not something different (yes I know I already have a 12 and want a 14r, but...that's different...so there...).
