Blast from the past... Kawasaki's New ZX-14's origins traced...

Rumours continue to surround the all new ZX-14, questioning its origins and styling. Kawasaki's latestest flagship bike is being touted by KMC as the "Busa killer". Discussion at has unearthed concept sketches from the ZX-12R design team, circa 1999 or earlier. Discussion at back in 2000 with regards to the design of the 12R had suggested that the marketing people had won out over the engineers, leaving the 12R just shy of the Busa for speed. Could it be that the engineers at KHI have taken over, and we are now seeing their original design?
