Kawasaki hinted at the release of a new motorcycle with the name "ZX" last year. While most of us anticipated the Ninja ZX-4R's release, Kawasaki introduced the upgraded Ninja ZX-25R in Indonesia. This time around, however, the inline-four cylinder 400cc super sport will make its US market debut, as evidenced by a leaked type approval document and launch teaser for February 1.
A (four-cylinder) 399cc engine with a six-speed transmission will power the next Ninja ZX-4R, according to the California Air Resources Board (CARB) type approval paperwork. Intriguingly, a VIN registration from the previous year listed the ZX400PP and ZX400SP variations, and in this type of approval form, the latter has been emphasised once more.
It is quite improbable that the ZX-4R will ever reach India. However, if someone from Kolkata can purchase the one and only Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R in India, in that case, we won't be shocked if some Indian fan decides it would also be beneficial to import ZX-4R! The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4R should serve as the ideal (relatively) and economical alternative to the 650cc and 700cc bikes like the Yamaha R7, Honda CBR650R, and the Aprilia RS660 in developed markets since middleweight supersports tend to be on the more expensive side.
