Z400 ABS

was $8,495

now $7,995

A fiercely authentic supernaked, the Kawasaki Z400 ABS exudes fresh street style and is immediately recognisable in a crowd with its compact chassis and aggressive styling. Keeping sugomi performance in mind (Z family design style), both the engine and chassis tuning are optimised to match the motorcycle. Comfortable, balanced and capable, the Z400 ABS offers a visceral riding experience that is sure to turn heads.

*Sugomi describes core performance and styling elements found in Kawasaki’s Z supernaked models. Imbued with sugomi, their performance excites; a ride on a Z supernaked is a visceral experience that stimulates the senses; engine and chassis tuning deliver a high level of control. Sugomi is also evident in their sharp styling, dynamic crouching form, and distinct silhouette.

FEATURES

STYLING

The Z400 combines the sharp, aggressive style of the Z650 with the large volume design of the Z300 to create an aggressive, agile, masculine impression. Its muscular, athletic bodywork reflects the increased performance while forming a flowing design that appears to float above the engine.

ERGONOMICS

The relatively upright riding position and wider handlebar put the rider in the ideal position for active control, facilitating dynamic, sporty riding. Wide set handlebars, a slim fuel tank and seat cushioning ensures ultimate comfort for the rider

COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT & EFFICIENT

Designing the engine from scratch allowed the engine layout to be optimised for size, weight and efficiency. The clean design, trimmed of any unnecessary items, and the revamped layout enable a slim engine and a cooling system with minimised external piping.

RIDER-FRIENDLY PARALLEL TWIN

Displacing 399 cm3, the new engine delivers significantly increased performance compared to its predecessor. The increased performance is complemented by a rider-friendly character; the smooth response and abundant low-end torque facilitate throttle control for new and experienced riders alike.

LIGHTWEIGHT TRELLIS FRAME

With both the engine and frame being new, engine placement could also be optimised. The new chassis has a short-wheelbase/long swingarm design, complemented by a steep caster angle that delivers light, natural handling.

LARGE DIAMETER FRONT BRAKE DISC

Measuring ø310 mm (the same size as those of the Z1000), the Z400’s semi-floating front disc offers sure stopping power. All models are equipped with ABS and feature the latest ABS unit from Nissin, the most compact and lightweight available.
