The Kawasaki Ninja 400 continues to draw power from a 399cc liquid-cooled, parallel twin engine that produces 44.3bhp and 37Nm of peak torque. The new Ninja 400 is actually 1Nm down compared to its BS4 compliant predecessor. The Ninja 400 sends power to the rear wheel via a 6-speed gearbox with an assist and slipper clutch. Kawasaki claims that the clutch lever action is now 20 per cent lighter compared to the previous Ninja 400.

Thoughts On The Upcoming Kawasaki Ninja 400 Launch

The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is set to finally return to Indian roads after a hiatus of 2 years. This comes after the Japanese marque finally updated the bike for newer emission norms. However, don't expect Kawasaki to do anything about cutting down the insane price tag that it fitted on the bike the last time it was here.
