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.KTM RC 390 is being offered in India with a different paint scheme from the last-gen model. The refreshed theme now covers more Orange, Jet Black and White shade on the body panels. It even offers a new exhaust system, making it heavier by few kg for sure. The engine is the same 373.2 cc, 1-cylinder liquid cooled and fuel injected motor, which now develops 43.5 PS of maximum power and 36 NM of maximum torque. The torque has been increased by 1 Nm and the power has been decreased by 0.5 PS.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.
