Kawasaki 2019 Ninja 400 ABS Sports Bike – Features and Price

Engine

For a more pleasant ride, the machined balancer shaft helps to counteract engine vibration. The shape of the oil pan enables the exhaust system to follow a straighter path, which adds to weight savings. Large-diameter header pipes improve performance over the rpm range. The arrangement of the cooling system reduces weight and exterior coolant pipes. When riding in the heavy city or highway traffic, the radiator fan cover directs hot air to the sides and away from both i.e., the rider and the passenger, for improved comfort. It also maintains the tank, frame, and other components the rider comes into touch with more relaxed, adding to the rider’s comfort.

Transmission/Clutch

The assist and slipper clutch (KP) is small, and its functioning plates reduce lever pull for an incredibly light lever feel. It is easier to operate when it has a broad engagement range. The clutch is pressed together during acceleration using the rotating forces of the clutch hub and pressure plate, allowing fewer and lighter clutch springs to be employed for a softer feel at the lever. The new slipper function permits clutch slippage during high back-torque situations, such as when a low gear is chosen when downshifting, to reduce rear-wheel hop and stall due to engine lock-up. Close gear ratios provide for smoother shifting.

Lightweight Trellis Frame

The Trellis frame is comparable to the Ninja H2TM in design. Kawasaki’s sophisticated dynamic rigidity analysis achieved maximum stiffness while minimizing weight. Thus the structure contributes considerably to the bike’s low total curb mass. A small wheelbase and long swingarm, combined with a sharp steering angle, create light, agile handling in a super sport-style chassis design.

Suspension

The square-tube swingarm structure offers stiffness without superfluous gusseting, which helps to save weight. The unique Uni-Trak(KP) rear suspension linkage ratios and shock settings improve ride quality. The 41mm fork distributes stiffness and charming suspension movement, resulting in more planted front wheel—brakes—a balanced actuation dual-piston caliper grips the large 310mm semi-floating petal front disc. The front brake is the biggest in the class, and the discs are the same size as those found on the Ninja® ZXTM-14R. A rigid front brake master cylinder aids in the elimination of idle stroke, resulting in a more positive feel. A 220mm rear petal disc is clamped by a rear dual-piston caliper with oversized pistons. Nissin’s newest compact ABS control unit is used in the ABS model, which aids braking under specific situations.

Wheels/Tires

The Ninja® 650’s stylish star-pattern 5-spoke wheels provide weight savings, and its improved lateral stiffness aids handling by improving cornering performance. The new radial tires are lightweight, have high traction, and contribute to agility and comfort when riding.

Chassis

The Kawasaki 2019 Ninja 400 ABS Sports Bike’s large-volume bodywork makes it seem more significant than an entry-level bike and more in line with the Ninja ZXTM-6R/10R. Sharp front cowl with chin spoilers evokes Kawasaki’s flagship super sports Ninja H2TM and Ninja ZX-10R. Slim LED headlights provide an aggressive style, are very noticeable to other drivers, and deliver more light than traditional bulbs. The tail cowl has the same triple-peak design as the Ninja H2, further cementing the Ninja 400’s ancestry. The Kawasaki 2019 Ninja 400 ABS Sports Bike’s sleek appearance is completed with an LED taillight identical to the Ninja ZX-10R.

Ergonomics

A relaxed riding posture is suitable for various rider sizes and riding scenarios. The Ninja 400’s high handle grip position, in contrast to other rivals with more severe ergonomics, the rider is in a comfortable place because of the somewhat forward footpegs. The large-volume bodywork provides excellent wind protection and facilitates clean airflow around the rider, which increases comfort. The design also helps engine heat dissipation via the fairing’s side holes. The new seat cushioning is substantial, employs low-rebound urethane for improved comfort, and is relatively narrow to help the rider’s feet to reach the ground quickly. When it comes to sport and aggressive riding, super sport-style aluminum footpegs give a direct sensation.

High-Grade Instrumentation

The new instrument panel is the same as the Kawasaki Ninja 650, with a big analog tachometer flanked by warning lights on the left and a gear-position indicator and a multi-function LCD screen on the right. For a sporty, contemporary design, the LCD panel features a negative display. The gear position indicator aids in shifting precision and assurance Odometer, dual trip meters, remaining fuel range, coolant temperature, current and average fuel consumption, clock, and Economical Riding Indicator are among the other display features. The Economical Riding Indicator looks to show positive fuel usage, assisting users in getting the most out of their rides.
