Here is what our experts feel about Ninja 400
Kawasaki has been championing the cause of sportbikes in India for a long time now. Yes, there can be many to choose from like the Honda, Yamaha, Triumph or the Ducati but Kawasaki has filled the void between 300cc to 1000cc bikes very well here in India. It has everything from sports bike to touring bike to bikes that can be taken offroad as well. Nevertheless, the Kawasaki brand always makes great bikes and has remained firmly in the market with many small changes over the years. Kawasaki Ninja 400 was first showcased at the Tokyo Motor Show in October 2018. Kawasaki has launched the Ninja 400 in India which is a level above the Kawasaki Ninja 300. Overseas, the Ninja 400 replaces the Ninja 300 but here it will sell alongside it. The Ninja 400 gets a larger capacity parallel twin engine, iconic styling, a new trellis frame and comes with new sets of features as well.
The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is available in only one variant at a price of Rs Rs.4,69,000 (ex-showroom price in India). There is currently no direct competitor to the Ninja 400 in India as of now.
Drawing the design inspiration from ZX-10R and the mighty H2, Kawasaki Ninja 400 gets a very sharp and aggressive styling. Dual LED headlamps up front look very premium and offer better light spread in the dark. H2 inspired chin spoilers are neatly incorporated in the front faring. With a streamlined bodywork, the Ninja 400 has a tapered tail section at the very end. At the rear, the tail lamp is ZX-10R inspired and looks very gorgeous. With shorter clip-on handlebars, the bike gives the flexibility of a relaxed ride posture or an aggressive stance as well. The rider footpegs are slightly more rear set to offer more supersport seating posture. The seat is comfortable and is slightly forward biased because of the bike’s supersport character, but not too much as it feels satisfactory on the highways as well. The instrument cluster is similar to that of the Ninja 650 with an analogue tachometer and the digital readouts including speedometer, odometer, trip meter, fuel gauge, gear position indicator, and an average fuel range efficiency as well. The sports bike is only available in one paint scheme of green colour and with the Kawasaki Racing Team (KRT) livery.
Powering the Ninja 400 is a new 399cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke, parallel twin engine. It makes max power of 49PS at 10,000rpm with a peak torque of 38Nm at 8,000rpm and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. This new mill has been fine-tuned to produce more low-end grunt along with high performance. Perfectly complementing the bikes performance is the trellis frame similar in design to the Ninja H2. Slipper clutch on the bike comes as standard and offers lighter clutch feel and provides faster downshifts without getting the rear wheels locked up. With a 14-litre fuel tank, this bike offers a good tank range. Top speed of this bike is 160kmph and it gives a decent mileage of 25kmpl.
The riding ergonomics are quite flexible as we can tuck behind the windscreen and shoot through the track circuit. On the other hand, you can also enjoy the ride while casually commuting in the city. This is all due to its power to weight ratio which is a mere 173kg kerb weight that is 12 kilos lighter than the Ninja 300. It is a delight as bike feels very lightweight and agile. Front 41mm chunky forks with 125mm of travel are good enough but USD forks would have better justified the high price. On the rear, the bike has Bottom-Link Uni-Trak gas-charged shock suspension with adjustable preload and 130mm of travel. Braking is taken care by single semi-floating 310mm petal disc with single balanced actuation dual-piston calliper up front and a single 220mm petal disc with a dual-piston calliper at the rear. Brakes work really well and the bike gets ABS as standard. Wide tyres on the bike by Dunlop offer good road grip. The star spoked allow wheels on the Ninja 400 are similar to the one on the Ninja 650. These lightweight alloys contribute to better lateral rigidity, better handling characteristics and better cornering stability.
This mid-level super sports bike has a bunch of safety features as well. The best thing about this bike is that the ABS provided as standard is very good and non-switchable for safety purposes. Advanced Rigidity Analysis was used by Kawasaki to ensure optimum rigidity of the frame while also significantly reduce weight as well. Safety is increased by use of powerful LED headlights as well as bright LED brake lights. Petal disc brakes at both ends ensure optimum braking even in emergency situations.
