The fact is that Kawasaki has technically perfected the new Concours 14 and also had to solve the previous generation model’s cooling problems, so that is why it is called new. Honestly, it doesn’t look new. Modern, yes, but not new simply because we’re all familiarized with Kawasaki’s idea of a touring derivation from a veritable supersport motorcycle.According to Kawasaki, the Concours 14 ABS Police will "lead the segment in safety, acceleration, handling, and braking." Other bikes in this category include the BMW R1200RT-P, Honda ST1300PA and Harley Davidson FLHTP.

The Concours 14 Police will be delivered with a tighter turning radius and custom law enforcement equipment, including an adjustable speedometer, a second wiring harness with 12 fused circuits and a separate battery dedicated to the add-on electronics.

An extensive selection of emergency equipment is available to satisfy agency requirements. According to Kawasaki the Concours 14 Police will have the "quickest acceleration and best high-speed handling in the law enforcement class.

The Concours 14 ABS provides significant competitive advantages for law enforcement agencies, compared to the police offerings from competing manufacturers.
