Kawasaki Ninja 400 Review

30 May, 2018 03:28 PM

Quick Review by Maxabout

Kawasaki Ninja 400 is priced at INR 4.69 lakh (ex-showroom). Kawasaki is one among few brands that keep their prices same for the entire country. This avoids confusion in buyers as they don’t try buying products from nearby state or city with a different price tag. As the motorcycle is only 400cc twin cylinder example in India, it has no direct competition. When measured only in terms of displacement, KTM RC390, Benelli 302R and Yamaha R3 falls within its competition list. Former being a single cylinder option, RC390 is priced at a huge INR 2.33 lakh price difference from Ninja 400.

In other words, changing your mind from Ninja 400 to KTM RC390 can allow you to add INR 3000 to the budget and buy a pair of RC390, gifting one to your friend. Yamaha R3 and Benelli 302R share the same INR 3.48 lakh price tag and thus, still saves INR 1.21 lakh when compared to Ninja 400. It has been oddly placed at such high point where adding INR 30,000 will let you buy much more powerful Kawasaki Z650 in India. It could have made utmost sense at INR 3.99 lakh, clearly inviting rivals to see how powerful the machine has been made using finest components.

Kawasaki Ninja 400 has no single flaw in its character but the game was spoilt with odd pricing and limited availability of the motorcycle. It is powered by a 399cc, twin cylinder engine producing 49HP at 10000 rpm and 38 Nm at 8000 rpm. It comes mated to six speed gearbox. The bike weighs just 173kg and thus, getting 190 kph of top speed is an impressive feat on its side. It is based on the same frame as 2018 Ninja 650 and shares most components with Ninja 300. Closest performing rival to Ninja 400 is Yamaha R3 as it produces 42HP of max power from its 321cc, twin cylinder motor.
