Unfortunately for me, Kawasaki recently noticed a rather conspicuous absence from its press fleet, and has asked for the ZX-14R back. This bike has been a riot on a daily basis and has consistently delivered, regardless of what I've asked it to do. Our time together hasn't ended on bad terms, nor have I had my fill of the '14, either. In fact, I've already started shopping for softly crashed examples in hopes of purchasing one for a more significant project. It's not surprising that there are few to choose from. This isn't a bike folks tend to flip—not literally, thanks to standard traction control, or figuratively, in the financial-gain sense. There just aren't many disappointed ZX-14R owners who are desperate to get rid of their bikes. Good for Kawasaki, bad for cheapskates like me. Having clocked 8800 miles over the past 10 months, it's fair to say I've learned a lot about the bike. The '14 has hauled me to trackdays and drag strips, toured two-up, and commuted, all without a single issue.
