Everybody knows that if you want to mix the adrenaline of a high speed race with the experience of normal traffic, then you should visit Germany’s famous Autobahn – a speed-lover’s paradise where there aren’t any speed limits imposed by the law.
Naturally, in a place like this happen a lot of interesting things, as regardless how fast you drive or ride, you have to keep in mind that there is always someone faster than you… even when you ride with 300 kmph on a motorcycle.
It may be hard to believe, but the whole action was caught on camera so the video bellow could make you change your perspective about what “fast” truly means.
The video shows a very skilled Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R rider that rolls on the Autobahn with 300 kmph when it is passed effortless by what seems to be an Audi RS6.
The Ninja 1000 was already one of the best bikes in its class, but this wasn’t enough for Kawasaki. Therefore the company’s engineers decided to raise the bar even higher with the 2014 version.

In terms of power, the Ninja 1000 is propelled by the torquey 1,043cc inline-four that features a few key revisions which help it boost its low and mid-range power. The engine cranks out a maximum power of 140 bhp and 82 lb-ft. of torque and sends its power to the ground through a revised six speed transmission. The new transmission features a longer 6th gear, which helps you reduce revs at highway speeds for enhanced smoothness. It is also worthy of being mentioned that the engine comes with new selectable Power Modes that offer a choice between full power and approximately 50 percent power output to help suit changing conditions.
The brakes are also upgraded, featuring ABS and new one-piece “monobloc” radial-mount front calipers.
