Kawasaki India has launched its new 2023 BS6 Ninja 400 at Rs.4,99,000 (Ex-Showroom). Let’s take a look at what we have here. The bike arrives in two shades.
- Lime Green and
- Metallic Carbon Grey
In addition to contributing to the Ninja 400’s sharper looks, slim LED headlamps (each featuring low and high beams, as well as a LED position lamp) are highly visible and offer significantly increased brightness.
The Ninja 400’s 399 cm3 engine delivers a balance of performance and controllability. The engine offers increased performance at all rpm compared to its predecessor, with a good power feeling. A smooth, predictable response contributes to an easy-to-control engine character. Thanks to its efficient design, the compact, lightweight engine has a size on par with 250cc engines.
Head-turning looks have always been a forte of Ninja models, regardless of displacement. The new Ninja 400 boasts futuristic new Ninja styling inspired by the mighty Ninja H2.
The large-volume bodywork attracts attention and gives the impression of a larger machine. This impression is reinforced by the high-class design and superb fit and finish, which are comparable to bikes from a larger-displacement class.
While seat height is 785 mm, the slim design of both the seat and the rear of the engine gives riders an unobstructed line for their feet to reach the ground.
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. The engine is rigid mounted and used as a stressed member. The frame design contributes significantly to the bike’s low curb mass.
The Ninja 400 is equipped with a sophisticated cockpit, featuring a large analogue tachometer flanked by warning lamps on one side, and a gear position indicator and multi-function LCD screen on the other.
Front disc brake
Measuring ø310 mm (the same disc size used on the Ninja ZZR1400), the Ninja 400’s semi-floating front disc offers sure stopping power. A rigid new front brake master cylinder helps eliminate ineffective (idle) stroke, contributing to controllability, while carefully selected brake hose dimensions and material contribute to brake touch.
