The 2021 Ninja is powered by an updated version of the same engine as seen on the previous model. Kawasaki is yet to announce power and torque figures of the updated engine.

We expect the power and torque figures to remain similar on the updated engine. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox with a slip-assist clutch. The same setup could also make it to the India-spec model.

The new grey colour option of the 2021 Ninja 400 seems like paint scheme that was available in the Honda CBR 250. However, the decals on the Ninja 400 are subtle. Additionally, the motorcycle comes with the lower part of the front fairing finished in light grey. It also has a green decal on both wheels.

The Passion Red looks standard yet aggressive with a couple of trim pieces covered in a black paint scheme. The alloy wheels feature white pinstriping as well. Whether Kawasaki will bring all the new colour to the Indian market remains to be seen.

Thoughts About The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 400 BS6

Kawasaki has not tampered much with the 2021 Ninja 400 motorcycle. As a result, the new motorcycle could be priced similar to the BS4 motorcycle if and when launched in India. The new Turquoise colour scheme gives the motorcycle a retro touch and makes it appealing to the buyers.
