Hi All!
Picked up my new 2015 ZX14R Ohlins Edition last week!
I've owned Honda, Yamaha, and Suzuki sports bikes, but this is my first Kawasaki, and my first bike over 1000cc.
I did some research, and decided on the Akrapovic's slip-ons. Extra performance wasn't an issue, but I loved he look and the exhaust note.
I tested a number of bikes before deciding on the Ninja. My last bike was an FZ1N, so I was worried the forward lean would be hard to adjust to as the seating position on the FZ1 is upright. I came so close to grabbing the BMW S1000R, but eventually decided that the Ninja just had be experienced.
OH WOW. Seating position? I had forgotten I was leaning within an hour. This girl is comfy! coming up to 1000kms, but I can feel the potential lurking below this cowling. Totally effortless power! I am loving this bike more than I thought I would! I ride to work (when it's not raining), and lane filtering was not problem at all. I did a 200km run on Saturday up the local bike roads, and she was just gorgeous. So well mannered in every aspect. How do they make a bike this big feel so light?
DID SOMEONE SAY SMOOTH? I have never in my riding life experienced so smooth an engine! Bravo Kawasaki! My Akra pipes have introduced a subtle about of vibration since installation, but overall, all I can say is WOW. Buttery Smooth transmission and Engine!

1st service around the corner, so I'll dump the factory oil, and put some semi-synth motel 5100 for the next thousand or so, then go with a full synthetic..
