2009 kawasaki concours 14

Kawasaki s strategy for their high-performance and easy Tourer is revealed by the class and nature. So while a BMW R1200GS will take you around the world on virtually all types of surfaces, the Concours 14 is the second best choice for such a trip and only planning to keep the streets.
Similar to the Ninja ZX-14, both in style and performance, the Concours brings Touring goodies down the scene and improve life on board without sacrificing power and EPD. In terms of model year 2009, requires that no serious upgrades to the engine and frame, but the engine has made a difference with the new black and red colors. As for the real touring bike, ABS is also available, but only as an option.
the characteristics of the 2009 Concours 14 Ninja ZX-14 1352 cc, four-stroke, liquid cooled, DOHC, four valves per cylinder, inline engine, which gets four Variable Valve Timing. This provides a good low and midrange acceleration without cutting into the top of increasing fuel consumption. These have almost transforms the engine in a touring-grade unit, but we have not heard anyone complain about the reliability of this engine, it mounted on a ninja or a Concours. The bike is on the scene for a while now and riders have even managed to collect many 15-20.000 miles on it with just the usual maintenance isn t that expensive by any means, even for this category.
A top performer, the engine is fed through a digital fuel injection with 40mm throttle bodies setup and get a six gearbox SPD reduced gas on highways. Kawasaki has went all the way with this sport-tourer and equipped with a Tetra-Lever shaft drive stopped working and also requires less maintenance.
For a 89.4 inch long piece of driving, the Concours impresses the management of a 32.1-inch offer a higher seat. The center of gravity is low for the large high SPD curves and the engine was 670.3 pounds (679.1 pounds of the ABS model) seem lost in the accelerating process. The 310mm petal discs front and 270mm rear disc binders deserve to be mounted on any sport bike so the suspensions (43mm inverted, telescopic fork with adjustable damping and preload offering four.4 inches of travel and Tetra -Lever with stepless damping adjustment and remote spring preload to adapt offering 5.four inches of travel).
With a large chair, an electronically adjustable windscreen, multifunction LCD digital dashboard, the Kawasaki Concours 14 riders and two captured by the passengers during long journeys. And with a 5.8 liters gas tank, this bike definitely going to have to refuel.
