Vehicle Overview
Kawasaki Ninja 400 is a lightweight sports tourer, based on the same frame and design as the younger Ninja 300. Apart from the visual similarities, the motorcycle gets a different 399cc, twin cylinder engine. The same is good for 49 HP @ 10,000 rpm and 38 Nm @ 8,000 rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox and claims a 190+ kmph of top speed. The fuel tank on the motorcycle is quite decent at 14 liters. It rivals none other than Yamaha YZF-R3 and KTM RC 390 in its segment.Honda CBR400R is a race spec model based on the bigger 500cc motorcycle. It carries a 399cc, twin cylinder engine that produces 45.4 BHP and 37 Nm of torque. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The motorcycle misses out on ABS while its list of rivals include KTM RC390, Benelli 302R, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Yamaha R3 in its segment. CBR400R comes with LED front headlights and carries forward the design from the bigger CBR500R. It may never launch in India as Honda will first try bringing the CBR300R for better single cylinder competition.Bajaj Pulsar SS400 is one of the two concepts that rocked the Auto Expo and led to the production of RS200. Bajaj Auto has never hinted at any possible launch for the same while it is expected to carry the same spirit as RC390, sharing its engine with the mighty sprinter. It will definitely weigh more but coupled with Bajaj DTS-i and triple spark system, it can return a nice mileage and performance figure.
