Kawasaki has just launched the 2022 Ninja 400 in the US. The company is offering the sports tourer motorcycle in three variants: non-ABS, ABS, and the KRT Edition. However, the Japanese manufacturer has not yet announced its plan on offering the BS6 model of the same in the Indian market. In the meanwhile, here we bring to you every other detail of the new Ninja 400.
It's powered by a 399cc twin-cylinder liquid-cooled engine that sits in a trellis frame. This engine is coupled to a six-speed transmission that is further assisted by a slipper clutch. If the company plans to launch the bike in the Indian market, they will have to update the engine over the BS4 model which used to churn out 47.5bhp of power and 38Nm of torque.
The 2022 Kawasaki Ninja 400 is a very sharp and sporty looking motorcycle. It comes with aggressive styling, a split-style seat with a rear grab handle strap and chunky exhaust with a metal cover. It also gets graphics throughout its side profile. There are a total of three variants on offer. The non-ABS and ABS variants will be available in two colour options: Metallic Carbon Gray/Metallic Flat Spark Black and Metallic Matte Twilight Blue/Metallic Graphite Gray. Meanwhile, the KRT Edition is painted in a Lime Green/Ebony/Pearl Blizzard White colour scheme.
It comes with features like a twin LED headlight, a semi-digital instrument cluster and a slipper clutch. It further comes with an economical riding indicator that helps the rider to extract the best efficiency from the sports tourer motorcycle.
The ride of the new Ninja 400 is taken care of by 41mm hydraulic telescopic forks at the front and a horizontal back-link with adjustable spring preload rear suspension. For braking, it employs a 310mm single semi-floating petal-type disc at the front and a 220mm single petal-type disc at the rear. The sports tourer motorcycle is equipped with 17-inch wheels on both ends. Those wheels are wrapped with tyres having 110mm width at the front and 150mm width at the rear.
