The Kawasaki Ninja 400 and Z400 have been Revealed

Kawasaki is expected to launch the Ninja 400 in India with a Euro-5/BS6 compliant engine.

In Europe, Kawasaki has unveiled the Ninja 400 and Z400 for 2023. The big news, though, is that both motorcycles’ engines are now Euro-5 compliant. This effectively means that the Ninja 400, which was discontinued in India when the BS6 emissions regulations took effect, could be reintroduced.

A 399cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine with 45hp and 37Nm powers the 2023 Kawasaki Ninja 400 and Z400. While the power figures remain unchanged, the peak torque has decreased by 1Nm. Given that the kerb weight of both motorcycles is the same, the effect of this minor drop in peak torque on overall performance should be negligible.

The Ninja 400 also gets a 20 percent lighter slip and assist clutch, which Kawasaki claims reduces effort when changing gears.

The bodywork, trellis chassis, and suspension haven’t changed, and the bikes now have a telescopic fork and a preload adjustable monoshock. A 310mm petal disc at the front and a 220mm disc at the back provide braking.

The only visual differences are the new colors on both bikes, with the Kawasaki Racing Team livery on the Ninja 400 looking particularly appealing.

Overall, Kawasaki could have taken advantage of this opportunity to replace the Ninja 400’s analogue-digital instrument cluster with a modern, color TFT unit.

The unveiling of the Euro-5 compliant Ninja 400, as previously stated, gives hope that Kawasaki India will bring it here. Our only wish is that the company does not charge as much for it as it did for the previous bike, which was Rs 4.69 lakh (ex-showroom, India).
