Q. How Ninja 650 is a better tourer bike? Why can’t I use Ninja 400 as a touring motorcycle?
  • You can easily use the Kawasaki Ninja 650 for touring purposes. As the bike falls in the segment of sports tourer bikes. The pillion comfort is good enough to ride smooth and comfort. As far as the touring on Ninja 400 is concerned, it falls in the sports bike segment. This is where the Kawasaki Ninja 400 will either make or break the deal for you. The 400 has let go of the 300's aggressive riding posture and opted for one that’s very friendly for touring. The seat height has remained the same at 785mm, but the seat is now a lot flatter than before. Further complementing this are the taller handlebars and the more mid-set footpegs, making for an almost upright, and rather comfortable stance. If you plan to commute or tour on the Ninja 400, this posture will be a boon for clocking those long miles in the saddle. Moreover, you can have a test ride of the bikes for a better idea of comfort and ride quality by visiting the nearest dealer in your city.
