LIGHTWEIGHT 400 SUPERNAKED WITH CLASS LEADING POWER

The latest addition to Kawasaki’s Z Series, the Z400 was designed to be a real Supernaked machine. Developed in parallel with the 2018 Ninja 400, like its Ninja counterpart the new Z400 offers significantly improved performance care of all-new high-performance engine and chassis. Keeping sugomi performance in mind, both engine and chassis tuning were optimised for a Supernaked package. Compared to the Z300 the new Z400 offers lighter handling and stronger low-end feeling – a rider friendly combination ideal for fun, nimble street riding.Matching its exciting performance, the Z400 is clad in aggressive new styling. Inspired by the sugomi styling of the flagship Z models, all-new bodywork blends the designs of the Z650 and Z300 to deliver an aggressive, agile, masculine impression.

SUGOMI STYLING

The new Z400 combines the sharp, aggressive style of the Z650 with the large-volume design of the Z300 to create an aggressive, agile, masculine impression. Its muscular, athletic bodywork reflects the increased performance while forming a flowing design that appears to float above the engine. Like other models in the Z Series, sugomi design elements (crouching stance, low-positioned head and upswept tail) give it a silhouette instantly recognisable as a Kawasaki Supernaked.

FUEL INJECTED 399 CM³ PARALLEL TWIN ENGINE

Displacing 399 cm³, the new engine delivers significantly increased performance compared to its predecessor: 33.4 kW for the Z400 (+4.4 kW vs the 2018 Z300). The higher performance can largely be credited to the new downdraft intake, which is accompanied by a larger airbox offering increased intake efficiency. The increased performance is complemented by a rider-friendly character; the smooth response and abundant low-end torque facilitate throttle control for new and experienced riders alike.

ASSIST & SLIPPER CLUTCH

More compact Assist A & Slipper Clutch (ø139 mm >> ø125 mm) with less rigid operating plates offers a 20% lighter lever pull. Complementing the extremely light feel at the lever, the new clutch has a wider engagement range, facilitating control. The Assist & Slipper Clutch was developed based on feedback from racing activities. The clutch uses two types of cams (an assist cam and a slipper cam), offering two functions not available on a standard clutch.

INNOVATIVE KAWASAKI TECHNOLOGY

Innovative Kawasaki technology like the new radiator fan cover (patent pending) located behind the radiator directs hot air out to the sides away from the rider, reducing rider discomfort when stuck in heavy traffic. Redirecting the air also helps keep the tank, frame and other parts that contact the rider cooler, further increasing rider comfort.

ERGONOMICS

Relaxed rider triangle accommodates a wide range of rider sizes and riding situations, contributing to its rider-friendly character. The relatively upright riding position and wider handlebar put the rider in the ideal position for active control, facilitating dynamic, sporty riding.

ENHANCED BRAKING PERFORMANCE

Large 310 mm semi-floating petal front disc is gripped by a balanced actuation dual-piston caliper. The disc is the same size as those used on the Z1000. At the rear a 220 mm petal disc is slowed by a dual-piston caliper with larger (25.4 mm >> 27 mm) pistons.

COMPACT MULTI-FUNCTION MODERN INSTRUMENTATION

The Z400 is equipped with the same stacked instrument cluster as the Z650. Offering an easy-to-read layout, the analogue-style tachometer features a gear position indicator at its centre and sits atop a multi-function LCD screen. In addition to the digital speedometer and gear position indicator, display functions include: odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, remaining range, current and average fuel consumption, coolant temperature, clock and the Economical Riding Indicator.
