> Kawasaki ZXR400
The Kawasaki ZXR 400 is the smallest of the ZXR breed (with the exception
of the Japan only ZXR250).
The styling was inspired by the larger ZXR750. With its race styled
twin headlight fairing and aerodynamic bodywork it looked the part.
The ZXR 400 is a good Superbike for beginners. Light and nimble the
ZXR 400 feels at home on the track or on winding roads, in part thanks
to its high-spec adjustable suspension and stiff aluminium chassis.
On long distances it's not so good. The sporty riding position is
rather cramped and can get uncomfortable after a while for all but
the smallest of riders.
The 398cc inline four-cylinder engine of the Kawasaki ZXR400 revs
through to 14,500 rpm and the power is at its best above 10,000 rpm
so regular changes up and down the six-speed gearbox are needed to
get the best performance out of the bike.
