Kawasaki has added an all-new A2 licensing compliant machine to their range.
The new Kawasaki Ninja 400 is being dubbed by the manufacturer as “an impressive, sharp-looking, accessible sports model offering excitement and ease of riding”
The new 400cc is loosely based on the outgoing Ninja 300 and predictably delivers a much greater performance thanks to its all-new 400cc engine. This, coupled to a lighter chassis makes for a very capable machine and should make the Ninja 400 a blast to ride with its light and predictable handling.
With this being a “baby” ZX-10R, this bike should appeal to a pretty wide audience, and if you are a taller person you will be able to spec the 400 with a higher seat, just to enhance the comfort levels and to stop your knees sitting somewhere up around your chin.
The new 400cc parallel-twin engine has been slightly tweaked in comparison to the Ninja 300 too. Sure you gain another 100cc to play with but there is also a new intake and a larger air box. All changes which mean that the Ninja 400 has 45BHP at 10,000rpm with solid low-end torque. Oh and there is optional ABS and a new assist and slipper clutch helping to make this a rider friendly A2 licence machine.
Naturally the Ninja 400 will come with a whole host of accessories to make this motorcycle your own. There’s a larger screen, the higher seat (+30mm), power outlet, pillion seat cover and a tank bag to name a few.
The all-new Kawasaki Ninja 400 will be available in Metallic Spark Black and Lime Green/Ebony, with all the Kawasaki Racing Colours and graphics that you would expect. We rekcon the pricing to be around £5,500-£6,500 when it hits dealers in February 2018.
