2019 Kawasaki Z400 Unveiled At EICMA 2019 – KTM Duke 390, Be Aware!

2019 Kawasaki Z400 looks like the Z900 and has segment-leading power to weight ratio with features also on offer

At the forefront of the naked bike trend in Europe with its Z brand, Kawasaki has augmented the range further still for 2019 with the introduction of a new middleweight offering in the form of the new Z400. Created with the benefit of Kawasaki’s unique Sugomi design philosophy which matches every engineering highpoint with a styling success, the Z400 is powered by a 399 cm3 parallel twin engine complete with an assist and slipper clutch.

The outgoing Z300, the new Z400 is both lighter and more powerful than its predecessor. Wrapped in a hallmark Kawasaki trellis chassis redolent of the mighty Ninja H2, the Z400 benefits from light, predictable handling plus low weight, the ideal combination for a machine focused on the A2 licence category.

With an easy reach to the ground stance, the Z400 possesses great ergonomics that belie its impressive “large volume” bodywork styling approach. For the rider the view over the handlebars is complemented by compact multi-function meter panel.

Featuring a digital speedometer plus gear position indicator, additional convenience is supplied courtesy of indication of fuel consumption and an economical riding indicator among other rider-centric features. The LED headlamp of the new Z400 shines like a beacon into the distance from a machine.
