Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. donated a 30th Anniversary Edition 2015 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-14R made to Boys Town California for its live auction at the annual Night of Hope event on October 17, held at The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California. This special edition Ninja is the final 30th Anniversary Edition model of the limited quantity of 300 that were produced.
The rare motorcycle pays tribute to the original Ninja 900R from 1984 and is painted with the exact shade of Firecracker Red and Metallic Greystone as its predecessor. Additionally, to commemorate the occasion for Kawasaki the Ninja ZX-14R is fitted with 30th Anniversary logos, has the badge number 300 on the gas tank, and features gold pinstriping and gold brake calipers. This limited run of 300 motorcycles was exclusive to the United States, making this one of the most sought after collectibles for any enthusiast.
“This is truly a one-of-a-kind motorcycle and everyone at Kawasaki is tremendously honored to donate it to such an incredible cause and group at Boys Town California,” said Bill Jenkins, Senior Vice President – Sales Operations at Kawasaki Motors Corp. U.S.A., and member of the Boys Town California Board of Directors. “The Night of Hope is one of the most prestigious and important events in Orange County and it’s fitting that one of the region’s most prominent companies has stepped up to support the event in such a unique and memorable way.”
Boys Town California was started in 1991 with the mission of providing programs focused on saving children of abuse in Southern California. Boys Town operates seven family homes in the region, reserved for youth who are unable to return to their homes as a result of abuse or neglect. In an effort to prevent out-of-home placement and keep families intact, Boys Town also provides intervention assistance through in-home family services and community support services.
With an MSRP of just under $16,000, this coveted piece of Kawasaki history is sure to garner tremendous attention from the gathering of 300 of Orange County’s most affluent and renowned individuals. Just last year the Night of Hope raised over $135,000, with all proceeds going directly to children and families in need. With the sought after Ninja ZX-14R up for auction, Kawasaki is sure to play an integral role in the event’s goal to raise over $180,000 this year.
