Kawasaki Ninja 400 launched in India.
Kawasaki Ninja 300 was one of the most popular Kawasaki bikes in India. Ninja 300 was highly sold because of its performance and looks. But in recent times, the 300-500 cc market witnessed the launch of highly capable and advanced machines like KTM Duke 390, RC 390, TVS Apache 310 RR and Benelli Tornado 302 R which made the Kawasaki Ninja 300 look dated in the market. To add to the Ninja line-up, Kawasaki Ninja 400 has been launched in the Indian market on Monday, 2nd April 2018.

- Kawasaki Ninja 400 gets the largest disc brakes in the 300cc-500cc segment.The Ninja 400 gets the largest (310 mm) front disc brake which is not seen on any other bike in this segment. It’s rival KTM RC 390 has a 300mm front disc brake. The front disc on the Ninja 400 is the same as seen on the mother of all Ninjas, the mighty ZX14R.
- Kawasaki Ninja 400 weighs 6 kg lesser than it’s predecessor Ninja 300.
Lighter motorcycles are any day comfortable and easy to ride. These days more and more riders are opting for compact bikes. To keep it light, Kawasaki kept the weight under control, which resulted in a lighter bike than the Ninja 300.
- Kawasaki Ninja 400 is a sports tourer which can double up as a track tool.
Unlike the RC 390, the riding position on the Kawasaki Ninja 400 is sporty but comfortable which makes it a good street bike. The RC 390 is a complete track tool but the Ninja 400 is a more dynamic machine. Ninja 400 surely has the makings of a sports tourer.
