Kawasaki Ninja 400 Discontinued: Ninja 500 Takes Over

Kawasaki has bid farewell to the Ninja 400 model in India, marking the end of its era as it exits the market. The decision to discontinue the Ninja 400 comes as Kawasaki welcomes the Ninja 500 to its lineup, offering enthusiasts a new and upgraded option. Previously listed on the company's India website, the Ninja 400 is now absent from the lineup, signifying the transition towards newer models.

Sold as a Completely Built Unit (CBU), the Ninja 400 was priced at Rs. 5.24 lakh (ex-showroom), mirroring the price of the newly introduced Ninja 500, which made its debut in February 2024. Despite its presence in the Indian market for several years, the Ninja 400's fate was sealed due to its overlapping price point with the Ninja 500, prompting Kawasaki to discontinue the former both in India and globally. In a bid to clear existing stock, Kawasaki offered substantial discounts on the Ninja 400 in its final days.

Equipped with a 399 cc parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine, the Ninja 400 boasted impressive performance figures, producing 44 bhp at 10,000 rpm and 37 Nm of torque at 8,000 rpm, mated to a 6-speed gearbox. In contrast, the new Ninja 500 features a 451 cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine with enhancements in low-end power delivery, delivering 45 bhp at 9,000 rpm and 42.6 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. Paired with a 6-speed gearbox, the Ninja 500 promises a refined and exhilarating riding experience.

Competing in the Indian market against formidable rivals like the Aprilia RS 457, KTM RC 390, and Yamaha YZF R3, the Ninja 500 aims to carve its niche with its superior performance and advanced features. As Kawasaki bids adieu to the Ninja 400, the arrival of the Ninja 500 heralds a new chapter for enthusiasts seeking cutting-edge performance and thrilling rides on Indian roads.
