On the technical front, the
Ninja 400’s all new 399 cm3 delivers higher performance and controllability.
The higher performance can largely be credited to the new downdraft intake,
which is accompanied by a larger airbox offering increased intake efficiency.
The smooth response and abundant low-end torque facilitate throttle control for
new and experienced riders alike. The Ninja 400 also has a potential to compete
with models having relatively higher power and engine capacity.
The Ninja 400 features a
trellis frame similar in design to that of the Ninja H2. Kawasaki’s advanced
dynamic rigidity analysis was used to ensure optimum rigidity with light
weight. Apart from this like the Ninja H2, the new Ninja 400 features a
Swingarm Mounting Plate. Allowing the swingarm to be affixed to the rear of the
engine contributes to stability.
Few noteworthy elements like
largest brake disc in class, more rigid front fork and sporty riding position
which can accommodate a wide range of rider sizes and riding situations make
Ninja 400 very unique. Besides a cover for the radiator fan directs engine heat
away from the rider, contributing to rider comfort.
The new Ninja 400 boasts
futuristic new Ninja styling inspired by the mighty Ninja H2. Chin spoilers at
the bottom of the front cowl were inspired by the Ninja H2 and Ninja ZX-10R.
LED taillight design inspired by the 2016 Ninja ZX- 10R contributes to the
rear’s sharp impression. The Ninja 400 is equipped with the same instrument
cluster as the Ninja 650, contributing to the high-grade feel of the tidy
cockpit. In a nutshell, Ninja 400 has got many features inspired by its elder
Yutaka Yamashita, Managing
Director of India Kawasaki Motors said “Ninja 300 is mainly made for beginners
and Ninja 650 is popular among experienced riders. However, Ninja 400 fits the
bill for those who are willing to buy a sports bike between 300 and 650cc.”
According to Yamashita “With
the introduction of Ninja 400 we have created a good family of Ninja series. As
of now Ninja 400 will be available in limited numbers, because Ninja 300 is
still our flagship model in India and it will be continued along with other
