  • Overview

    The Kawasaki Z400, introduced in 2019, adds a fresh perspective to the world of small-displacement naked bikes. Emerging a year after the highly revised Ninja 400, this bike presents a fusion of stripped-down streetfighter aesthetics while housing the same capable and enjoyable 399cc parallel-twin engine that graces its sibling model. Retaining all the crucial attributes of a small-displacement motorcycle, the Z400 boasts a lightweight and agile nature, making it an excellent choice for novice riders seeking an exhilarating experience.

    Despite sharing an engine with the Ninja 400, the Z400 caters to a different audience, appealing to those who prefer upright ergonomics for more comfortable and extended commuting. This adaptability has not gone unnoticed, as the Z400 earned recognition by securing the prestigious 2019 and 2020 Cycle World Best Lightweight Sportbike award, cementing its status as a top contender in its class.

  • Powertrain

    The Kawasaki Z400 strikes the perfect balance, making it an ideal choice for both new and experienced riders. Its well-designed parallel twin engine is the key contributor to this harmonious blend. Novices will appreciate its approachable nature, while seasoned riders will find excitement under their helmet with its performance.

    The engine's design allows for a smooth and manageable ride for beginners, instilling confidence as they learn the ropes. However, when the need arises, the Z400 can unleash its power and cater to the demands of more experienced riders, making it a versatile and enjoyable machine for all.

    The assist-and-slipper clutch adds to the seamless experience, providing an easy pull and ensuring smooth deceleration when navigating through corners. The performance on the CW dyno further confirms its capabilities, delivering 44.1 hp at 9,830 rpm and 25.1 lb.-ft. of torque at 8,250 rpm to the rear wheel. The power curve remains linear, while the torque curve impressively maintains a broad and flat profile.

  • Handling

    The Kawasaki Z400 is equipped with a nonadjustable 41mm Showa fork at the front and a preload adjustable KYB shock at the rear. These suspension components feature softer spring rates compared to those found on the Ninja 400, contributing to a more comfortable and forgiving ride over rough and uneven surfaces. The Z400's suspension setup provides a cushioned and well-damped experience, ensuring a smooth journey even on bumpy roads.

    Thanks to its nimble chassis and well-balanced handling, the Z400 delivers a sense of ease and control for riders. Negotiating turns becomes effortless as the bike responds promptly to inputs, allowing riders to navigate corners with confidence. Furthermore, the motorcycle's light weight and low mass enhance maneuverability at low speeds, making it a breeze to handle in tight spots or during slow-speed maneuvers.

    In summary, the Z400 impresses with its capable suspension system, providing a plush and composed ride over various terrains. Its agile chassis and neutral handling characteristics contribute to a riding experience that is both user-friendly and enjoyable, ensuring a smooth and controlled journey for riders of all skill levels.

  • Ride Comfort

    The Kawasaki Z400 boasts a more relaxed rider triangle in comparison to the Ninja 400. This is achieved through its one-piece handlebar, which is wider, and the forward position of the footpegs. The relaxed rider positioning contributes to a comfortable and laid-back riding experience.

    However, taller riders may find the Z400 less accommodating due to the bike's proportions. In testing, a rider who was 5-foot-10 commented on how he appeared relatively large on the Z400 and felt it lacked ample space. While not cramped, the bike does not offer the roominess that some riders might prefer. Additionally, taller test riders encountered an issue with the protruding side shrouds, which made contact with their knees, causing discomfort.

    On the other hand, the Z400 proves inviting to shorter riders, as it features a claimed 30.9-inch seat height and a slim tank, promoting easier reach to the ground and enhanced maneuverability for those with shorter inseams.

    One notable distinction between the Z400 and the Ninja 400 lies in wind protection. Since the Z400 lacks a windscreen and extra bodywork, it does not provide the same level of wind protection as its Ninja counterpart. Riders who prioritize wind resistance and touring comfort might find the Ninja 400 more suitable in this regard.

    In summary, the Z400's rider triangle leans towards a relaxed and comfortable posture, making it favorable for shorter riders. However, taller riders might find certain aspects less accommodating, and the bike's wind protection is not as robust as the Ninja 400's due to its minimalist design.

  • Engine & Fuel Consumption

    Kawasaki Z400 exhibits an approximate fuel consumption of 34 km/l according to the manufacturer's claim, and the writer achieved an average of around 31 km/l during their rides. The bike's real-world range is approximately 350 kilometers on a full 14-liter tank. These figures highlight the Z400's commendable fuel efficiency, making it a cost-effective option for daily commutes and longer rides.

  • Braking & Safety

    The Kawasaki Z400 is equipped with Nissin calipers that grip onto 310mm and 220mm discs for the front and rear brakes, respectively. These braking components are designed to offer a more gradual and progressive response rather than an aggressive initial bite. This characteristic is particularly well-suited for beginners, as it allows for smoother and more predictable braking, helping novice riders build confidence in their braking abilities.

    Additionally, the Z400 comes standard with non-switchable ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), which enhances safety by preventing wheel lock-ups during hard braking or on slippery surfaces. While some advanced riders may prefer switchable ABS for specific riding scenarios, having ABS as a standard feature ensures an added layer of protection for riders, especially those who are new to motorcycling.

    Overall, the braking system on the Z400 is designed with the needs of beginners in mind, providing a balanced and controlled braking performance to complement the bike's user-friendly nature.
