2018 Kawasaki NINJA ZX-14R ABS SE



The Ninja® ZX™-14R ABS SE motorcycle’s ultra-powerful 1,441 cc inline four-cylinder engine puts it at the top of its class. Advanced electronics, an innovative monocoque frame and stunning bodywork makes the Ninja ZX-14R ABS SE a sensation you have to see–and feel–to believe.


  • POWER YOU CAN CONTROL: Lightweight Monocoque aluminum frame designed for stability and responsive handling. Inverted 43 mm cartridge-type fork with stepless damping adjustment. Wind-tunnel-tested aerodynamic bodywork.


  • EXTRAORDINARY POWER: Fearless innovation starts with an attitude. Advanced electronics systems like Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC) and Digital Fuel Injection (DFI) provide unmatched performance. Kawasaki Traction Control (KTRC) with 3 modes for ideal traction. Back-torque limiting slipper clutch reduces rear-wheel hop during downshifts. DFI delivers the perfect fuel mixture for optimal performance.


  • EXTREME POWER: Incredibly powerful 1,441 cc inline 4-cylinder engine. Two selectable power modes: Full Power (for peak performance) and Low Power (for milder response).

Special Edition Features

  • Outstanding braking power and progressive braking feel thanks to Brembo® 4-piston cast aluminum M50 monobloc calipers (Brembo's highest grade). Brembo radial-pump master cylinder and reservoir tuned to minimize ineffective (idle) stroke at the lever for superior feel. Large 310 mm Brembo floating front discs with grooved outer edges provide increased surface area to improve heat dissipation for consistent performance.
  • High grade dash meter with interchangeable (black or white) LCD screen background. Stainless-steel braided clutch and brake lines for improved feel and consistent performance. Dark-tinted clutch and brake reservoirs and black anodized reservoir brackets for improved appearance. Drilled and anodized billet steering stem nut.
