New Kawasaki 2016 1400GTR ABS for sale in Cairns

2016 1400GTR ABS

Transcontinental Supersport

The ultimate touring motorcycle - 1400GTR ABS

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.

New 2016 1400GTR ABS
2016 1400GTR ABS Tetra-Lever Suspension

Tetra-Lever Suspension

The Tetra-Lever rear suspension is supported at four points on the left and right side and mounts to Kawasaki’s unique Uni-Trak suspension system. This system almost completely eliminates the up/down movement associated with shaft drives during acceleration and deceleration, resulting in a very natural ride feel.

2016 1400GTR ABS Variable Valve Timing

Variable Valve Timing

A first in the touring category, variable valve timing alters the camshaft timing in response to rpm and throttle position. The result is high torque output in the low and medium rpm ranges and awesome high-rpm power at the top end. Combustion efficiency is also improved, contributing to enhanced fuel efficiency.

2016 1400GTR ABS Shaft Drive

Shaft Drive

A two-point jointed shaft is used, ensuring smooth power delivery to the road surface, and delivering a ride quality and chassis behaviour very natural in feel and similar to chain drive, with the added benefits of the very direct “shaft drive feel”.

2016 1400GTR ABS Quality Touches

Quality Touches

Like a supersport bike, the GTR uses a radial-pump master cylinder and radial-mount, opposed 4-piston callipers 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 (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 calliper. Smoke-coloured brake and clutch reservoirs contribute to a higher-quality image.
