Kawasaki Ninja 400 Sales Down to 0 Units in November 2018

Kawasaki Ninja 400 is facing tough times against competitive placement of bikes like Yamaha R3 and even the cousin Ninja 300.

The 399cc, twin-cylinder engine on the motorcycle is good for 49 PS of maximum power and 38 Nm of torque. The overall output is really fascinating as Yamaha R3 has 42 PS of maximum power. Basic design lines of all Ninja bikes remain similar, leaving hundreds of buyers stuck with Ninja 300. If launched through the highly critical local production route, Ninja 400 could serve as a benchmark for performance twin-cylinder bikes of India. Some of the interesting features for Ninja 400 includes 150-section rear tire, wet weight of just 173 kg, 14-liter fuel tank, and 41mm telescopic forks.
