Z400 Wait­ing in the Wings?

Bike India - - IGNITION -

KAWASAKI ARE SOON GO­ING TO IN­TRO­DUCE THEIR 2019 LINE-UP and, ac­cord­ing to a doc­u­ment in the United States, there might be a new mo­tor­cy­cle in this line-up. The doc­u­ment men­tions two 400-cc mo­tor­cy­cles, one of which is called the ER400DK, which, given the fact that the smaller Z300 was co­de­named ER300BG, is a clear in­di­ca­tion that a 400-cc Z bike ex­ists and it will cer­tainly be brought to In­dia once it goes on sale in the in­ter­na­tional mar­kets.

The smaller Z400 will be based on the com­pany’s new Ninja 400, which we have rid­den and about which you may read in this very is­sue. The Z400 will fea­ture the same 399-cc par­al­lel-twin en­gine that pro­duces 49 PS and 38 Nm. It will also fea­ture the same chas­sis and sus­pen­sion. How­ever, the en­gine will be in a slightly dif­fer­ent state of tune. Be­sides, the styling will be rem­i­nis­cent of the big­ger Z mod­els in the Kawasaki line-up. We ex­pect Kawasaki to re­veal the bike at the EICMA show in Mi­lan due to be held in Novem­ber.
