The Kawasaki Ninja 400 Receives Its Annual Graphics Update

There’s still no news from Kawasaki on the bike’s BS6 model

It seems that Kawasaki is in no hurry to roll out the current emissions compliant version of the Ninja 400. The 399cc parallel-twin engine still hasn’t received the necessary EU5/BS6 updates that would make the bike eligible for sale in India and Europe. Instead, it is only available in markets like Japan, USA and China where the emission norms aren’t as stringent. For China, Kawasaki has updated the Ninja 400 with two new colour schemes.

In all there are four shades -- the KRT green and the Spark Black colours were already on sale. Of the two new colours, the Deep Grey (the one with the orange accents) option was available in Japan. This is the first time we have seen the Twilight Blue scheme and it does look rather appealing. The dark blue shade and steel grey dual-tone shade give the bike a sharp look, which is only further amplified by the white graphics.

We wish Kawasaki India rethinks its pricing strategy for the Ninja 400, which was exorbitantly priced at Rs 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom India) during the BS4 era. To be fair, it was the best sub-400cc bike that we have ridden but the asking price meant we couldn’t recommend you spending your hard-earned cash on it. Even if the BS6 version does land up on our shores, Kawasaki should bring the price down for it to attract buyers, just like BMW did with the G 310 R and G 310 GS (check out the reviews of the BS6 versions of the naked and ADV here).
