The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is powered by a 399cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin motor that is mated to a six-speed gearbox. Peak power of 45PS is generated at 10,000rpm, with 37Nm of peak torque kicking in at 8,000rpm. The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is built around a trellis frame, similar to the Kawasaki Ninja H2. Like the Ninja H2, the new Kawasaki Ninja 400 also features a swingarm mounting plate, allowing the it to be affixed to the rear of the engine to improve stability. The front suspension is taken care of by telescopic forks, while the rear gets a monoshock. Braking is managed by a 310mm front disc and a 220mm rear disc.A new 399cc liquid-cooled parallel twin motor gives the Ninja 400 substantially more power and torque than the Ninja 300. The motor has a different bore and stroke, new intake and exhaust systems and lightweight internals that allow Kawasaki engineers to bump up the compression ratio. So more power and torque are produced at a lower RPM. The motor has been tuned to deliver better low- to mid-range grunt with a linear power delivery. The output is 49PS at 10,000rpm and 38Nm at 8,000rpm. That's 10PS and 11Nm more than the Ninja 300.The Kawasaki Ninja 400 is here to challenge the KTM RC 390 on paper but realistically it is the Yamaha R3 that takes it up by the horns. Both showcasing twin-cylinder motors with similar riding dynamics and almost similar power figures. The Ninja 400 also gets ABS, something the Ninja 300 misses out on. Add to that the slipper clutch, which is neither present on the R3 nor the 302R. So if you are looking for a performance packed sports tourer powered by a parallel-twin motor, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 is the way to go. Considering you have the extra dough.
Depends on what you will use it for. If you plan do drive even 50% in the city, go for the 400. It's power to weight ratio is close to the 650, yet more manouverable. Go for the 650 only if you plan to go on long tours.Pillion on 400 is almost useless, so if you plan on doing long tours with a pillion, go for the 650.

Ninja 650 isn't a good choice to make if you ask me bike sound isn't that great as u expect. whereas the ninja 400 is a monster and only one bike of its segment makes it even cooler. sound keeps improving as u ride more. Riding ninja 400 is pure sports. My suggestion is go for the 400
