Just added the 50 HP dry shot nitous this summer, dynoed at 230+ rear wheel horsepower. On a real dyno just not a sheet of paper!

I don't even own any cars with 230 rwhp. Good gawd.

The only time a ZX-14 can look small is next to a GS!

Bolt on some luggage and you're all set! I couldn't imagine what 230hp would feel like on a bike. Hell, today at the light I was first in line, I shot out of there like a rocket and unintentionally popped a wheelie and I've only got 165hp. I've love to test drive your bike around there, the land of stretched EyeAbusers and 600cc bikes that sound like an angry swarm of bees.

Very nice. I see you have the TiForce high mounts . I picked the same. Best looking exhaust on the market for the ZX14 IMHO

I like what you've done with the suspension and brakes. While I'm not a horsepower junkie, I've yet to own a bike that had either component to my taste, and it's usually one of the first things I look towards doing on a new (to me) bike.

I'd really want to have a ZX or Hayabusa in my garage at some point just for the hell of it, probably the former.

It would be awesome taking them out to a big oval track like this to really stretch their legs:

Gorgeous bike! Gotta love bike power bikes, too. I had a VR turbo on my gen 1 Hayabusa, nothing like it!

I've had a gen 2 as well, but the ZX14 is calling my name this time around. So smooth!

I have the '12 14R w/Brocks stuff. It is a better bike than my '06 14 or my 'Busa, IMO. Very smooth, refined, and "stupid fast" to steal Brock's business slogan. More importantly, it's great on the road and in daily use, except for fuel economy. Great road bike if you're into the excess thing.

Thanks Guys, the 14 is a beast and I love it. I have had GSXR's Ducatis's etc, but none of them fit my overgrown body. The ZX-14 is the first sport bike I have ever had that was comfortable for me. I have done 400 mile days and was still smiling when i got home.

The stock brakes and suspension weren't what I used too so I had to do some minor upgrades to get the ride I was looking for. The Nitrous was really just a add on to see what it was like, I rarely use it and when I do it's only in a straight line. Hang on.........................................

Have a stupid fast Busa myself and when the need for speed arises...well, you know what I mean. Have found some two lanes in Nevada that allow that kind of top end speed but alas, no banked corners. BTW, I always thought LRRPs lead the way!
