Features

Chassis Management Technology

  • ERGO-FIT®: Proper fit is key for rider comfort and control. However, the ideal fit varies from rider to rider, depending on their physical dimensions and riding style. ERGO-FIT® is an interface system designed to allow riders to find their ideal riding position. Various points of the chassis interface (the handlebar, footpegs and seat, etc.) can be adjusted through a combination of interchangeable parts and parts with adjustable positions. This enables a wide range of riders to find a riding position that offers both comfort and control. Feeling at one with their machine, they will be able to experience how Kawasaki machines are fun and rewarding to ride. *Adjustable parts and their range of adjustability vary by model.

Engine Management Technology

  • ECONOMICAL RIDING INDICATOR: Using high-precision electronic control for engine management, Kawasaki models can achieve a high level of fuel efficiency. However, fuel consumption is greatly affected by throttle use, gear selection, and other elements under the rider's control. The Economical Riding Indicator is a function that indicates when current riding conditions are consuming a low amount of fuel. The system continuously monitors fuel consumption, regardless of vehicle speed, engine speed, throttle position and other riding conditions. When fuel consumption is low for a given speed (i.e. fuel efficiency is high), an "ECO" mark appears on the instrument panel's LCD screen. By riding so that the "ECO" mark remains on, fuel consumption can be reduced. While effective vehicle speed and engine speed may vary by model, paying attention to conditions that cause the "ECO" mark to appear can help riders improve their fuel efficiency – a handy way to increase cruising range. Further, keeping fuel consumption low also helps minimize negative impact on the environment.

Ergonomics

  • DESIGNED FOR COMFORT: A sporty yet relaxed riding position accommodates a wide variety of riders and riding situations.
  • SPORTY & COMFORTABLE: Clip-on style handlebars offer a raised position for added comfort.
  • EASY & ACCESSIBLE: A narrow seat design and low 30.9” seat height allows the rider to confidently reach the ground and creates a lower center of gravity for confident handling.
  • ADDED COMFORT: Forward-oriented footpeg position contributes to comfortable ergonomics and a confident reach to the ground at stops.

Handling

  • NIMBLE & AGILE: The Ninja® 400 motorcycle’s chassis dimensions were designed to deliver confident handling with a modern sporty feel at all speeds.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT & AGILE: Similar in design to the unprecedented Ninja H2™ hypersport bike, the tube-type trellis frame is light in weight for smooth control and handling.

Power

  • NEXT-LEVEL POWER: The Ninja® 400 motorcycle engine delivers the perfect balance of high-performance thrills and easy-to-use power.
  • CLASS-LEADING POWER: The four-stroke, 399cc twin-cylinder is the largest displacement engine in its class and delivers smooth easy-to-use power for maximum rider confidence while also offering outstanding fuel efficiency.
  • ASSIST & SLIPPER TECHNOLOGY: The assist function provides an exceptionally light clutch pull and produces a wide clutch engagement range for comfort and confidence. The slipper function reduces the effect of back-torque for smooth and seamless downshifts.
  • CONFIDENT ACCELERATION: Best in class roll-on acceleration to confidently accelerate up to speed.

Styling

  • SHARP & MODERN: Aggressive Ninja® styling boasts high-class modern design with superb fit and finish inspired by the larger displacement Ninja supersport bikes.
  • HIGH-TECH: The high-grade cockpit of the Ninja® 400 motorcycle features a multi-function dash meter that includes a gear position indicator.
  • EXCELLENT VISIBILITY: Twin LED headlights produce strong white lighting and include low and high beams as well as position lamps.
