2Xtreem's tribute to Apollo astronauts
WE ALL know the Americans like to do things in style, and what better example do you need than 2XTREEM's Kawasaki ZZR1400 NASA tribute.
The bike has been built to commemorate the Saturn Apollo missions and subsequent moon landing in 1969 and not only looks like a mini shuttle but goes like one too. The machine's undergone some serious engine tuning work, giving the ZZR a claimed power output of 350bhp.
The idea for the custom motorcycle came from Joe Capicotti of 2Xtreem Motorcycle TV. He had never forgotten the impression the landing on moon made on him as a child and he wanted to bring that magic back to the American Public.
The bike was shown to NASA at the Kennedy Space center on Dec 11th to an enthusiastic response from the NASA staff. The NASA Apollo Tribute ZX14 will be on display at the Kennedy Space Center after a national tour this summer and on display at several major motorcycle events this year, including Daytona, Laguna GP, Indy GP as well as others.
350bhp - Good.
Everything else - Bad.

The ZX12-R (later models) was a much better looking bike.
Still, wouldn't kick it out of bed for farting.
