Its big but not as big as the Kawasaki VN 2000. You have to see and feel that bike to believe it. My friend couldn't tilt it straight from the side stand . The expression on his face was worth a million .

Few places I ever leave her untended, and when I do, I'm nervous as a gator at a dentists.

Haha..thats funny! I hope it wasn't your friend who bought the bike. Imagine,someone who'd buy such a bike and not be able to even tilt it..let alone be able to ride it on the streets.

If you are talking about Bombay then there are new bikes coming in almost everyday or at least bought everyday. There is a ZX-14 and there is a ZZR 1400 as well. The new Busa is more popular here though.

IronWolf: Sir, most do including my buddies. I'm a rare bird who uses my bike everyday- a commute with laptop strapped to my back. On Sundays she changes from pumpkin into fire-breathing beast for our wild highway blast.

I thought it was the same bike, ZX-14 being the Yank nomenclature while EU and Japan use ZZR1400.
