In a straight line, yes. It's not what I would call a pure sportbike; the Hayabusa is a closer comparison.
Gail and I rode one at Bike Week. Of the half dozen or so test ride groups that we watched leave (12 ZX14's in each) Gail was the only SO to climb on the back of one. The tail rider walks up after and says "Wow, she's the real deal huh?" Yes, yes she is.
The 14 is fast (very very fast) and amazingly civilized. The ergos are similar to the ZZR1200, more aggressive than the FJR, but not near those of the GSXR. I would assume the GTR version would be even closer to the FJR or GT.
