Kawasaki officially released their new champion in the sport fairing segment. The 400 cc engine motorbike called the Ninja ZX-4R was introduced in Thailand. The 4-cylinder engine motorbike is marketed starting at 320 thousand baht or the equivalent of Rp. 142 million.
Quoted from the Kawasaki Thailand page, the Ninja-ZX4R was inspired by the 400 cc motorbikes of the 1980s and 1990s, which had the characteristics of an engine that was capable of screeching at high rpm.
In the modern era, the 400 cc engine is here to fill the gap between 250 cc motorbikes and 600 cc motorbikes. However, the existing 400 cc model is considered unable to give consumers expectations. So that’s why Kawasaki presented the ZX-4R which is powerful but still has compact dimensions.
The new Ninja ZX-4R ushers in an incredible 400 cc revolution with a new In-Line Four engine developing an unprecedented 55 kW (75 PS) of power. The machine can screeching up to 15,000 rpm.
To ensure that the Ninja ZX-4R is as compact and agile as possible, the new engine is mounted on a chassis with the same conceptual proportions as the Ninja ZX-25R. The trellis frame is made of high-tensile steel, and equipped with high-grade components such as dual front disc brakes and capable front and rear suspension to ensure the Ninja ZX-4R has ideal handling, braking power and driving characteristics.
Speaking of features, this motorbike is equipped with a color TFT instrument panel with smartphone connectivity, and an integrated driving mode that connects traction control and driving modes. The Ninja ZX-4R SE variant features a two-way Kawasaki Quick Shifter, USB power outlet (ZX-4R SE only), and front suspension with adjustable preload.
In Thailand, the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4R is marketed in two variants and prices, the standard variant with a metallic spark black color option sells for 320 thousand baht or the equivalent of Rp. 142 million and the SE variant with a choice of lime green/ebony colors sells for 360 thousand baht or Rp. 159 million .
