Hey, Lietoome, has anyone asked how you came across these colour's and the keys to the 2013 model?

Any news in yet on any changes to the bike? Virtually every preceeding model has less weight, better handlign, better suspension and so on...

Obba, I'd bet it might get a few tweaks under the skin, if they had some engineering improvements/issues. obviously nothing too drastic. maybe even slight cost savings, or supplier part changes. without an actual redesign.

Or maybe a tiny bit better cal on the FI. usually bikes only get very minor changes between design cycles. So I'd say that other than the US possibly getting ABS (most of the rest of the world has it avail); color options will be the only difference.

Lol, these 2012 ZX-14R colors were inspired by the 1991 ZX-7 paint scheme. While it might look like a comic book by today's standards, back then the 1991 Kawasaki ZX-7 was a very popular model and very succesful in road racing.

I personally like this color combination.

Maybe there isn't going to be one (red)? or maybe its a mid year color?

Have they offered more than 4 color's in ANY year 14? black, blue, white, green might be it.

Usually its 2 or 3 options, right?

Sounds like UAE will be getting the 2013 ZX14R and zzr1400(with ABS) mid October. From what I hear they will have White and Blue available. I wish they would come back with the 2006 Red. I bought the last 2012, and absolutely Love it, may trade up for the white ABS... The white would look sweet with white lowers.

I like the red the most out of the 2013 14R line up even though I am not a fan of the new color schemes..... to ABS or not to ABS....lol mmmm i still think i may look for a 12 14R. Has anyone had any experience with newer bikes equipped with ABS? is it worth it to have it???

None of those new 2013 colors can come close to the green . At least, in my opinion.

Yup. That color. Looks black until you shine a bright light on it, then it turns blue.
