Delivering both awesome supersport performance and comfortable long-distance touring potential, the 2016 1400GTR stands apart from its rivals. Building on the continent-crossing performance of it predecessor, the new model adds a number of tweaks for increased comfort, as well as some engine and chassis fine-tuning for increased riding performance.

Traction Control, ABS, Tyre Pressue Sensors, Grip Warmers, Centre Stand, Panniers, Keyless Ignitions, Remote Pre-load adjuster and Electrically Adjustable Windscreen are all a part of the standard features on the 2016 1400GTR ABS. The 1400GTR ABS features KTRC, Kawasaki's traction control system, giving riders the piece of mind to negotiate slippery surfaces with confidence. The system looks for difference in front and rear wheel speed. When rear wheel spin is detected, engine output is controlled to allow the rear wheel to regain grip.

K-ACT (Kawasaki Advanced Coactive-braking Technology) ABS enables riders to execute controlled, balanced braking. Designed to complement rider's applied brake force, K-ACT ABS ensures ideal brake force distribution to maximise braking efficiency. The side and centre cowlings on the 1400GTR ABS are designed to dissipate hot air quickly. The result is increased rider comfort.

slide 1

The 1400GTR implemented the first application of an electronic authorisation system to a touring machine and greatly enhances rider convenience as well as security, thanks to the incorporation of an ignition immobiliser.

slide 2

Fitted as standard equipment (an industry first), tyre pressure sensors warn the rider of tyre pressure irregularities and allows the rider to monitor tyre pressure while underway. When tyre pressure falls below 220 kPa, a low pressure warning is displayed on the instrument panel.

slide 3

The 1400GTR ABS comes equipped with an electrically adjustable windscreen as standard. The windscreen’s height allows air passing over the top of the screen to flow smoothly around the rider’s helmet. The vent also enables smoother flow. Fewer vortices form behind the screen resulting in reduced head buffeting.

slide 4

All purpose DC socket makes it easy to use electrical accessories. Easy to adjust headlights when loaded.

slide 5

Stepless adjustable grip warmers are fitted standard the switch is located close to the rider for easy access.

slide 6

The cases are mounted as close as possible to the bike’s centreline and the bike’s centre of gravity. Their lightweight construction was designed to minimise their influence on the bike’s centre of mass. Maximum capacity for each pannier is 10 kg.

slide 7

Pressed stainless steel rings for the speedometer and tachometer dials add a higher-quality image to the cockpit. Smoke-coloured brake and clutch reservoirs contribute to a higher-quality image. Larger exhaust heat guard offers increased protection for the rider’s leg/foot while creating a more integrated design with the silencer cover.

slide 8

K-ACT ABS settings reduce the linked braking effect on the front brake when the rear brake is applied. This allows a more natural brake feeling for low-speed manoeuvres like U-turns.

slide 9

Because touring riders tend to rely more heavily on the rear brake, the GTR is fitted with a 270 mm rear disc (20 mm larger than that of the ZX-14). Large brake pedal surface area eases operation. Like the front brakes, a petal disc is used at the rear. It is operated by an opposed 2-piston caliper.

slide 10

Like a supersport bike, the GTR uses a radial-pump master cylinder and radial-mount, opposed 4-piston calipers gripping semi-floating 310 mm petal discs. Braking performance is simply outstanding. Because touring riders tend to rely more heavily on the rear brake, the GTR is fitted with a 270 mm rear disc
