2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 Features and Details

The new 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400 draws styling cues from its supercharged litre-class sibling, the Ninja H2. The motorcycle continues with the dual headlight setup although it now features an LED illuminator. The headlight design itself is sharper than the the Ninja 300. Don’t miss the chin-spoilers below the twin LED headlamps that give it the distinct character of its litre-class siblings. At the rear is a ZX-10R inspired LED tail light.

Apart from the headlight, the body panels, fairing and the fuel-tank too receive a design upgrade. However, it continues to use the fairing integrated front blinkers which give the motorcycle a clean design. Ride related information is displayed on a new LCD panel.

The new Ninja 400 is built around a new steel trellis frame which uses the engine as a stressed member. The new frame also helps the motorcycle shed 6 kilograms over its predecessor (174 kg wet), tipping the scale at 168 kg (wet). Although part of that weight saving also goes to a relatively smaller fuel tank that carries 14-litres of petrol instead of 17-litre on the Ninja 300.

The 2018 Ninja 400 continues to use a conventional telescopic suspension upfront although this time, it uses a 41 mm Kayaba forks and a monoshock at the rear. The Ninja 400 uses a rather simpler 5-spoke wheel design.

Kawasaki claims that the large-volume bodywork offers better wind protection. Add to that the relatively relaxed riding position and the Ninja 400 should haul your rear over long distances in comfort. The seat height stands 785mm tall and uses thicker foam for enhanced comfort.
