Kawasaki Ninja 400 And ZX-10R SE are expected to own Indian introductions
Kawasaki Ninja 400 And ZX-10R SE: Kawasaki is expected to showcase and maybe launch a selection of motorcycles at the Auto Expo 2018. The newest Ninja 400 is likely to be present at the manufacturer’s stand, together with the new SE version of its liter-class bicycle, the ZX-10R, that is also expected to make its own Indian introduction at the show. Kawasaki can also display its Ninja H2 SX (touring-orientated H2) in the show. There is also a possibility to observe a road-legal enduro bike a segment first from Kawasaki at the Auto Expo 2018. Let see whats new in Kawasaki Ninja 400 And ZX-10R SE.
Kawasaki Ninja 400: The 400 from the Ninja’s name suggests that the bicycle’s all-new 399cc parallel-twin motor that makes a promised 45hp and 38Nm of torque. The Ninja 400 includes a new steel trellis framework which uses the engine as a stressed member and helps provide a 6kg weight saving over the Ninja 300, putting it at 168kg. The clutch pull is milder thanks to the addition of the assist and slipper clutch. The bike also includes a bigger 310mm disc up front with Nissin ABS.
Kawasaki claims the ‘large-volume bodywork’ provides great wind protection. Also, a part of the bodywork would be the Ninja H2 motivated ‘chin-spoilers’ below the twin-LED headlamps. Another piece from a larger sibling is the instrument cluster, that is directly borrowed from the Ninja 650. There’s no clarity in the moment on if Kawasaki will deliver the Ninja 400 to India, as the Ninja 300 was recently released in BS-IV trim. We believe the Ninja 400 could make it to India this season as a substitute for the present 300, especially as this bicycle offers ABS, which is mandatory shortly.
The Kawasaki ZX-10R currently has an SE variant that features digital semi-active suspension derived from the organization’s Superbike World Championship race bike. Along with the secret suspension, the motorcycle also gets additional equipment to further boost its track skills. The SE comes equipped with Showa suspension in front and back (Balance Free Front Fork and BFRC-lite jolt, featuring the exact same structure as the suspension on Kawasaki’s WSB Ninja ZX-10RR race machines).
It is also the company’s first motorcycle to feature Kawasaki Electronic Control Suspension (KECS) — a technology that has stroke sensors and adjustment solenoids built into the suspension. This technology is meant to accommodate to both riding and road requirements and provide the right amount of damping, using a reaction time of only 1 millisecond. Being a more track-focused 10R, the SE becomes new lighter seven-spoke Marchesini forged wheels, an up-down quick shifter, and a new color scheme. We can anticipate the SE to be showcased at the Auto Expo 2018.
Kawasaki Ninja H2 SX: If you were considering getting the H2 but felt it needed a bit more practicality, then Kawasaki was covered today. The Japanese bicycle maker recently launched the supercharged H2 SX sports tourer internationally, which includes a lot of changes over the standard H2 including a better fuel economy that makes it more of a tourer. The bike is available in two trims the SX and the high-spec SX SE also Kawasaki states that the motor has obtained revisions to supply more mid-range power, instead of the top-end power found on the H2 and H2R.
The revised performance was achieved by making big adjustments to the engine’s internals, with it becoming new cylinders, pistons, head, camshaft, and supercharger. Kawasaki has not stopped there, the H2 SX also gets a new trellis frame that’s been constructed with a reinforced rear sub-frame to handle the increased load. The SX weighs just 18kg over the conventional H2, even following its additional fairing and touring add-ons. The SX SE variant comes equipped with additional features, such as Kawasaki’s first color TFT LCD instrument cluster and LED cornering lighting. This supercharged sports tourer is also expected to be on display at the company’s stand at the Auto Expo 2018.
Dirt bikes: Kawasaki has up to now launched many non-road-legal, dirt-biased bikes. First came the small KLX 110 in late 2015, followed by the motocross-style KX100 and KX250F in December 2016. Then, Kawasaki introduced the new KX250F, KX450F, and KLX450R to India. We can anticipate all these dirt bikes and much more to be on display at Kawasaki’s stand in the Auto Expo 2018.
In addition to this, we could see Kawasaki starting something along the lines of its 2018 KLX 250 in India. This would be the first road-legal dirt/enduro bike offering in the nation and would make them the first manufacture in the section to give a product like it.
Kawasaki Ninja 400 And ZX-10R SE is an amazing sports bikes that will launch soon.
