|Although the Concours 14 is a physically impressive machine, as soon as riders flip up the side stand they’ll be astonished at the bike’s lightweight feel. And thanks to variable valve timing the Concours’ engine performance is just as remarkable. Ultra-low-rpm and mid-range torque output is simply breathtaking, as is the effortless acceleration from any speed. From low-rpm to high, the Concours churns out a silky spread of linear and impressive power.|
|How impressive is it? Off-the-line acceleration is actually a match for that of the ZX-14!|
|Maintenance chores on long-distance trips are minimized thanks to quiet and reliable shaft drive. Featuring a special four-shaft design, the Tetra-Lever shaft drive system significantly reduces driveline lash during sport riding and ensures smooth acceleration when exploiting the engine’s immense power output. In fact, power delivery to the rear wheel is so smooth and so direct that it gives the same natural ride quality as a chain.|
|In spite of the Concours’ touring-facilitating equipment, it offers a cornering bank angle on par with the ZX-14, with its excellent steering feedback from the rigid chassis, inverted fork and other high-spec running gear. Belying its tourer-like appearance, the Concours’ phenomenally responsive handling characteristics make standard tourers seem like transports by comparison.|
|The all-weather ABS brake system features radial-mount front calipers operated by a radial-pump master cylinder, for the superb control and powerful, reliable braking performance that continent-crossing sport riders demand.|
|An electrically adjustable windscreen, shaft drive and standard panniers mean the Concours 14 is always ready for a transcontinental jaunt. But these are more than mere "touring" features. Wind protection for rider and passenger is based on a supersport-style design philosophy, aerodynamically curving wind around the riders to reduce buffeting that occurs when wind curls around screens that simply "block" the wind.|
|In addition to its high level of sporting performance, the new Concours 14 has the functional performance of a Grand Tourismo machine. Features include KI-PASS (Kawasaki’s Intelligent Proximity Activation Start System), the first electronic authorization system in its class.|
|A cigarette lighter style DC power outlet is located in the cockpit for powering a GPS and other accessories.|
|The pannier cases feature a slim, integrated design which mounts the cases closer to the machine’s center line, for excellent centralization of mass.|
|Tire pressure sensors at the front and rear wheels monitor changes in air pressure and display this information on the instrument panel, giving riders peace of mind during high-speed riding or when carving up a mountain road.|
|Fuel Injection: 43 mm x 4 (Keihin)|
|Primary Reduction Ratio: 1.556 (84/54)|
|Final Reduction Ratio: 2.036 (14/22 x 32/10)|
