Motorcycles > 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.
