Kawasaki has updated the Ninja 400 with two new colours – Metallic Spark Black/Lime Green and Lime Green/Ebony (KRT edition). The company has also said that the bike will be available in limited numbers – 10 units of each colour – at Rs 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Back in March 2019, Kawasaki had announced that the prices of most of its models were set to increase, as a result of the increasing costs of raw materials and fluctuations in foreign exchange rates. This is when we saw the already expensive Ninja 400 increase from Rs 4.69 lakh to Rs 4.99 lakh.
Unlike many international markets where the Ninja 400 has replaced the Ninja 300, both the bikes are sold simultaneously in India. Like the 400, the Ninja 300 got updated with two new colours in May 2019.
Powering the Ninja 400 is a 399cc, parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine that belts out 49hp (international-spec model gets 45hp) and 38Nm of torque. The motor is mated to a 6-speed transmission and gets a slipper-clutch as standard.
