Kawasaki has been renowned for making small-capacity sports bikes in India. It all began with the Ninja 250, followed by the Ninja 300 in 2012. It even left manufacturer's like Honda, KTM and Yamaha in the dust with their 300cc offerings. In 2018, Kawasaki had upgraded its Ninja yet again - this time to 400cc, making it easily the top performer in its segment. And while the Ninja 300 continues to sell alongside, the Ninja 400 will be sold as a premium product. It's the first 400cc offering in its segment and made its global debut in 2018. While the Ninja 400 is based on its predecessor, its design is inspired by larger Kawasaki bikes. Engine Packed neatly within the frame is a 399cc, twin-cylinder engine that produces 47.50bhp and 38Nm of torque. The motor is liquid-cooled and comes paired to a 6-speed manual transmission. The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is BSIV-compliant. Specifications The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is an aggressively styled motorcycle. At the front, it gets a pair of large headlights that match the sharp styling of the nose. It gets indicators integrated in the fairing. The black and green colour theme is typically Kawasaki. It also sports a large visor, a muscular tank and a seat setup like any other sports bike. The pillion grab handle is too large for our liking, but we liked the black alloy wheels. Also, the tail light at the rear looks like it belongs on a bigger bike, along with clear lens indicators. The instrument cluster is a blend of analogue and digital. The tachometer is bang in the middle, while the digital unit is on the right side. The quality of the switchgear is good. In terms of dimensions, the Ninja 400 is 2020mm in length, 710mm in width and 1120mm in height. The bike has a very strong top-end, but acceleration isn't anything to write home about. However, the bike picks up pace very quickly. Vibrations can be felt when the motor is pushed to its limit. The gearbox shifts smoothly and the clutch is light. At 173kgs, the bike's weight is manageable. The ground clearance, on the other hand, is 140mm, while the bike has a wheelbase of 1370mm and a seat height of 785mm. Mileage The Kawasaki Ninja 400 has a fuel tank capacity of 14 litres. In terms of mileage, the bike is capable of returning 25kmpl by ARAI, in BSIV guise. Mechanical Parts On the Ninja 400, you don't sit too upright, but nor do you have to crouch. It's somewhere in between. The rider sits perfectly well on the bike, but the pillion sits high up on a rather small seat. The rear view mirrors are positioned well. But the foot pegs for the rider are placed in a slightly awkward position. And the rider's seat is very comfortable. The bike feels very composed at high speeds and loves to tackle corners, thanks to improved grip and a sharper steering. The bike handles well and feels agile too. Ride quality is impressive as it soaks in the bumps well. Braking performance leaves nothing to complain about. At the front, the bike rides on telescopic forks, while the rear gets a bottom link uni-trak setup. As far as the chassis is concerned, it is built around a trellis, high-tensile steel frame. The Ninja 400 runs on 110/70 R-17 tyres at the front and 150/60 R-17 tyres at the rear. Retardation duties are taken care of by disc brakes at the front and at the rear. Features The bike comes loaded with a slew of features like a pillion grab handle, ABS, alloy wheels, LED headlamp and tail lamp, part-digital instrument cluster, engine kill switch, clock and pass-light switch. Colours The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is available in three shades like Lime Green, Metallic Spark Black and Lime Green Ebony. Lime Green Ebony is certainly a colour that is bound to be a favourite among young riders.
