The Kawasaki Ninja 400, which shares design lineage with the crazy Ninja H2, has its sights set on the welter weight motorcycle throne. Now we can't wait for it to come to India, although Kawasaki are yet to confirm any actual timeline on when the Ninja 300 replacement will make its way to India.
Most of the kit on the Ninja 400 will come from the Ninja 650 including the instrument cluster which will have both analogue as well as digital equipment!

The Ninja 400 will be 6 kilos lighter than the current 400 even with the larger displacement motor. A large amount of the weight saving will come from the new trellis frame. And bringing it all in control will be a 310 mm disc brake up front and a smaller rotor disc at the rear, Nissin will be making the ABS for the Ninja 400.
The 400cc Kwacker made its debut at the 2017 Tokyo motorshow, and went on sale in the US for about 4000 USD (Rs 3.02 lakh) yesterday. Although we expect it to be slightly more expensive once it lands in India considering the fact that the 300 currently retails for about 3.8 lakhs.
