NEW ENGINE: HIGH PERFORMANCE & HIGH CONTROLLABILITY

The Ninja 400 all-new 399 cm³ engine delivers a balance of performance and controllability. The new engine offers increased performance at all rpm compared to its predecessor, with good power feeling. Smooth, predictable response contributes to an easy-to-control engine character. Thanks to its efficient design, the compact, lightweight engine has a size on par with 250cc engines.

RELAXED RIDING POSITION

Relaxed rider triangle accommodates a wide range of rider sizes and riding situations. Compared to some other models (whose somewhat extreme riding position compromises comfort), the elevated handle position and slightly foot forward footpeg position put the rider in a position to control the bike while also offering rider comfort.

310 MM FRONT DISC

Large 310 mm semi-floating petal front disc (effective diameter: ø286 mm) is gripped by a balanced actuation dual-piston caliper. The disc – the largest in its class – is the same size as the ones used on the Ninja ZX-14R.

EXHAUST SYSTEM

Simplified exhaust system traces a straighter line, contributing to lower weight. Pipe wall thickness of 0.8 mm further contributes to weight savings. The exhaust design features 28.6 mm diameter headers with a connecting pipe enhancing the mid range torque. The stylish muffler provides a high grade appearance.

WIDER REAR TYRE

Radial tyres on the Ninja 400 offer light weight, excellent grip and contribute to both agile handling and riding comfort. Further, the 150 mm rear tyre adds to a more imposing looking rear end.

SUPERSPORT STYLE WHEELS

Stylish star-pattern 5-spoke wheels similar to those of the Ninja 650 contribute to light weight, while their optimised lateral rigidity benefits handling, adding to cornering stability. The wheels are a product of technology gained in MotoGP. They also contribute to the bike’s light looks.

STYLING

Head-turning looks have always been a forte of Ninja models, regardless of displacement. The new Ninja 400 boasts futuristic new Ninja styling inspired by the mighty Ninja H2. The large-volume bodywork attracts attention, and gives the impression of a larger machine.

DUAL LED HEADLIGHTS

In addition to contributing to the Ninja 400’s sharper looks, slim dual LED headlamps (each featuring low and high beams, as well as a LED position lamp) are highly visible and offer significantly increased brightness. Chin spoilers at the bottom of the front cowl were inspired by the Ninja H2 and Ninja ZX-10R.

DOWNDRAFT FUEL INJECTION

Supersport style downdraft intake provides a shorter, more direct path for intake air to enter the cylinder, improving cylinder filling efficiency and contributing to increased engine power, especially at high rpm. (The downdraft intake also contributes to chassis layout by freeing up space under the seat, facilitating a design that offers an easy reach to the ground.

SLIPPER CLUTCH

More compact Assist & Slipper Clutch (ø139 mm >> ø125 mm) with less rigid operating plates offers a 20% lighter lever pull. Complementing the extremely light feel at the lever, the new clutch has a wider engagement range, facilitating control.

41 MM  FRONT SUSPENSION

A more rigid 41 mm telescopic fork (previously ø37 mm) delivers better suspension action. The front wheel feels really planted, direction changes are made easily (even when the bike is fairly upright – handy when navigating traffic jams), and overall the suspension offers the plushness of a larger model.

LIGHTWEIGHT TRELLIS FRAME

The Ninja 400 features a trellis frame similar in design to that of the Ninja H2. Kawasaki’s advanced dynamic rigidity analysis was used to ensure optimum rigidity with light weight. The engine is rigid-mounted and used as a stressed member. The new frame design contributes  significantly to the bike’s low curb mass.

INNOVATIVE KAWASAKI TECHNOLOGY

The new radiator fan cover (patent pending) located behind the radiator directs hot air out to the sides away from the rider, reducing rider discomfort when stuck in heavy traffic. Redirecting the air also helps keep the tank, frame and other parts that contact the rider cooler, further increasing rider comfort.

HIGH GRADE COCKPIT

The Ninja 400 is equipped with the same instrument cluster as the Ninja 650, contributing to the high-grade feel of the tidy cockpit. The sophisticated instrument design features a large analogue tachometer flanked by warning lamps on one side, and a gear position indicator and multi-function LCD screen on the other.

HANDY UNDER-SEAT STORAGE

The front seat can be easily removed by pulling a cable located under the rear seat, greatly facilitating access to the battery. Under-seat storage space has two levels for a more efficient use of the space. A handy Tool Kit is located in the lower level of storage.

 
LED TAILLIGHT

LED Taillight design is inspired by the 2016 NINJA ZX-10R contributes to the rear’s sharp impression.
