I'm afraid I am one of those that like the look of the 2006 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R. I must agree with RealRacer2305 about if it can beat a Hayabusa on the street, strip or on the track. I haven't gotten any information on it but what is on the Kawasaki corporate website. It does look nice and promising though. Large #s of CCs would be hard pressed to hurt its plight.

ZX-14

Yes, the ZX-14 will be the new king of speed. I predict (for what it's worth) it should put down about 180 rear wheel horsepower. More than enough to dispatch the Busa. Should make a nice replacement for my ZX-11.

I just saw the ZX-14 in all three colors at last weekend's CycleWorld motorcycle show. I must say, I don't much care for the looks of the bike although the blue color was the most forgiving of the bunch. But if the bike performs as advertised, I can overlook the styling. Hell, the Busa is no prize in the looks department either!

Its to ugly to hurt the busa, as far as how fast it will be, who knows.
The busa aint exactly pretty... but I guess fat girls need some loving too :D

The zx14 should have what it takes to whip the current busa, but there are rumors of a new one for '07...

I was reading some motorcycle magazine and it said the ZX-14r had 100 ft/lbs of torque. WTF is that?

At the moment the kawisaki has definitely got the busa beat. I'm wondering how the situation will change though when the six cylinder , 1400cc busa is released in the pretty near future. ;)
(....god...they're both so damn ugly though :mad: )

lmao....when i went to buy my 1st bike in March of this year i was going with the intent on buying a 1400 ninja.
The guy at the bike shop asked me how long i been riding and i said i never have and he refused to sell it to me :)
He suggested something tamer...i went to the gsxr 1000.He said i wasnt understanding him and that i was going to die on one of those kind of bikes :( I ended up with a Katana <-----true story.I am definatly looking forward to buying the 1400 next year.
I mean why else would somone buy something that insanely fast other than to go fast?Who cares what it looks like.

I can see it now....im going to look like the Wile Coyote coming down the street riding on one of those acme rockets lmao.

Nice to hear there are some dealer with some sense. :)

Katana was a much better choice. Put a few thousand miles on it then move up. :thumb:

But I don't care how fast something is when it's that ugly. The Busa is one of the ugliest things to ever hit the pavement running a close second to the Potiac Aztek. :D

Besides, the Busa and ZX14 are fast in straight line... take them to the mountains and watch them get smoked by the little bikes. ;)
