Kawasaki Z400 revealed
- Kawasaki has taken the wraps off the new naked Ninja 400, or the Z400, to be precise.
- The Kawasaki Z400 trades the Ninja’s fairing for a characteristic Z series look with a sharp new headlamp and side extensions. The clip-ons have also been replaced by a traditional handlebar for a more upright riding stance.
- The instrument cluster on the Z400 is a new, very Z650/ Z900 like all-digital unit. Other than that, it’s basically the Ninja 400 – the tank, seat, wheels, tail design, etc., all look identical to the fully faired model.
- The Z400 rides on 41 mm conventional forks and a link-type preload-adjustable monoshock. Braking duties are handled by dual-piston callipers at both ends with 310 mm petal disc up front and a 220 mm petal disc at the rear. ABS will be a standard fitment in many markets, including India.
- Powering the new street fighter is Ninja 400’s 399 cc parallel-twin motor that’s capable of generating 48.3 bhp and 38 Nm.
