i think the old man look has to go away, no offense fellas. The goerge foreman grills have to go, the dual exhaust has to go. I think the whole bike has to go, but i cant be sure till i see one in person. Maybe even ride one. More colors would be nice and a more sporty look. The head lights look good, its different and definitly a change. The tail section doesnt look that bad either, but those grills wow they really have to go, what the hell were they thinking. to much saki in the designers and engineers table. To much saki makes suckie suckie, for a long time!!!

I like it as is. if I buy this bike I will leave basically stock with exception of the exhaust and maybe airfilter/pc. I have another bike that has been a four year project of modfications with more to come

Would be nice to have a choice.

My heavily modfied and lightweight 1k that is not comfortable for my 45 yr old body, but lots of kudos in the fun factor department or a more comfy, tq monster like the Zx-14 will likely be.

Need a lime green version though.

then the board will all go "that new 14 really isnt that bad....it's growin on me"
You guys are all SICK,SICK,SICK stop whining I tell ya...I'm sure everyone just raved about how the Busa looked when it came out....I saw one today...it looks like it has warts!




I agree BROOKLYNNYZX12, I believe the perfomance of this bike will sway all,
even Busa owners.

If the ZX-14 would have been the best looking big bore bike of all time, and
had the same performance as the ZX-12r, the people on these boards would
have been up in arms.

If I had to choose one factor, looks or perfomance on my SPORTBIKE, I choose
performance everytime. Dont get me wrong, I'd rather have both, but when you
reach these hieghts of perfomance, aerodynamics come into play.

I think the ZX-14 looks pretty good, not great but definitly good.

I think we all need to see this thing in person. I personally can't wait to give it the old walk around maybe a few times before I draw any final conclusions. Sometimes pictures have a way of hiding depth and the overall stance of the machine. March can't get here fast enough. I am sure the red line in 4th. gear will be the line many will cross with a smile. Curiosity might just kill the cat!
