Kawasaki launches Ninja 400 2018 edition at Rs 4.69 lakh

   Apr 12,2022

The Kawasaki Ninja 400 will be sold alongside the Ninja 300 in India and carries a premium of Rs 1.10 lakh over its 300cc sibling.


The bike will be only available in its KRT-edition green colour in India. The bike maker has also announced that they will have a special offer for customers who book the Ninja 400 in April. However, when we asked for more details, we were told that they haven't decided the amount, as yet; so it appears that potential customers will have to go to the showrooms themselves to discover what deal Kawasaki has to offer.

The Japanese two-wheeler giant also confirmed that unlike many international markets where the Ninja 400 has replaced the Ninja 300, both the bikes will be sold simultaneously in India.

The styling of the Kawasaki Ninja 400 is much sharper than its predecessor; it looks sportier, as well. The motorcycle features split-LED headlights which are its standout design element. It gets a part-analogue-part-digital instrument cluster with a large analogue tachometer taking centre stage. Powering the motorcycle is a new liquid-cooled 399cc parallel-twin engine that belts out 45hp and 38Nm of torque. The motor is mated to a 6-speed transmission and its slipper-clutch is standard. Kawasaki engineers have also employed a new trellis frame which has increased rigidity. The Japanese bike maker claims that handling dynamics of the bike have improved, too.

With 45hp and 38Nm, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 continues to compete against the Yamaha YZF-R3, Benelli 302R and the KTM RC 390 in India. However, it comes at quite a premium over all those bikes and costs Rs 1.10 lakh over the Ninja 300 – which retails for Rs 3.60 lakh (ex-showroom). It also edges very close to the Z650 (Rs 4.99 lakh) and the Ninja 650 (Rs 5.49 lakh) – both of which share a considerably more powerful 68hp/65.7Nm 649cc parallel twin engine.
