  • New Ride... It's Green!!

    Hey folks, we'll ownership of my ZZR1200 which I purchased back in the spring has come to an end. I picked up a brand new leftover 2017 ZX14R Special Edition last Friday with 1km on the odometer. Kawasaki Canada was offering 2 extra years of warranty, multiple stacked incentives so it was a very good deal and was the color I was looking for. However, up here in Canada, we tend to get royally screwed on insurance but with my age and good driving history... my insurance company gave me a good price for full coverage.

    There are dealers over in Quebec with a few brand new 2016, 2017 and 2018's leftovers still on the showroom floor. I was looking at an 18 model (green, grey, black) but I really didn't care for that color combo.

    ​​​​​​The 14R is the same green as my old 2001 it was meant to be. Already racked up 1000kms.. took it in for the first service, but will be doing all future oil changes and general maintenance myself.

    ​​​​​​​Sold the big ZZR in less than a day of posting it up on kijiji... new owner emailed me after driving it home... he's very happy with it.

      Congrats on your replacement ZX 14

      Major difference from your ZZR huh?

      I'm on the fence about the '18 color combo you spoke of.

      Sometimes I like it then sometimes it seems a bit flashy.

      Unfortunately, I have no local dealer with one in stock to look at in person.

      I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

        Sweet - I’m sure you will miss the ZZR but that 14r will steal your heart.
