Kawasaki has launched the new 2023 Z400 motorcycle in the international market. Besides the new Z400, the company has also updated the Ninja 400 sport bike which is also anticipated to arrive in India. The biggest update on the new Z400 is the use of a Euro5 or BS 6-compliant powertrain which now makes it eligible to be sold in the regions which have stricter emission norms.
The 399cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled motor on the 2022 Z400 which is shared with the Ninja 400 is rated to churn out 44bhp of power and 37Nm of peak torque. The engine is paired to a six speed transmission and features a slipper clutch mechanism. With the new update, the overall power output from the engine continues to remain equivalent to the previous unit, while the torque has come down by 1Nm.
Talking about the style, the bike continues to feature a similar, Z H2-inspired design sporting a single-pod headlight, while the muscular fuel tank with shrouds remain the key highlight of its physical appearance. That said, this bike also features a step up seat and a side-slung exhaust. The bike comes in two colour options Candy Lime Green with Metallic Spark Black and Pearl Robotic White with Metallic Matte Graphene Steel Gray.
