Kawasaki Ninja 400 has finally been launched in India at a staggering price of 4.69 Lakh Rupees. The 250-500cc segment which is dominated by Royal Enfield motorcycles right now is witnessing quite a change with new entrants like UM motorcycles and pretty soon the Honda Rebel, Husqwarna and American Cleveland motorbikes. However, Kawasaki has been persistently penetrating the segment with new bikes like the Ninja 400 giving the customers better options to choose from.
The Kawasaki Ninja 400 too is aimed at the customers who are looking for Superbike performance on the cheap. So if you are in the market and want something to stand apart from the Ninja 300 owners and aren’t ready for a Ninja 650 yet then this Kawasaki bike makes the perfect case for you.
Kawasaki Ninja 400 | Features and Specifications
The all new Kawasaki Ninja 400 is intended to fill the gap between the Ninja 300 and 650 which were both aimed at pretty distinctive people. While the 300 made a lot of sense for a first time owner that has no experience with performance bikes, the 650 was intended purely at bike enthusiasts. The Kawasaki Ninja 400 will bridge the gap and will appeal to the buyer that is looking for a slightly better performance than the 300 and does not want to shed the extra money for the 650.
The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is powered by a 399cc parallel twin engine that generates a peak output of 44.4Bhp at 10,000 rpm and maximum torque of 38Nm at 8,000 rpm. Both the wheels come with two-piston caliper disc brakes – 310mm at the front and 220mm at the rear. The Kawasaki Ninja 400 will be assembled at the Chakan factory in Pune which also happens to share the instrument cluster with the 650.
Kawasaki Ninja 400 Price in India and Launch
Kawasaki Ninja 400 Price in India is 4.69 Lakhs which is a full 1.09 Lakhs more than the 300. However, the difference between the 650 and Ninja 400 is just 80,000 Rupees and we’re not sure how well will that fare for the new 400cc bike. Maybe that explains why Kawasaki is looking to produce the Ninja 400 in limited numbers. We strongly recommend acting fast as there might be no stocks available at later dates.
