The new Ninja ZX-4RR is priced at RP 239,900,000 (Rs. 13.01 lakh) and is currently available in a single variant and one paint option – Lime Green. The motorcycle boasts a powerful 399cc, inline four-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with 16 valves, with a Ram Air intake system.
The engine is linked to a six-speed gearbox and produces a maximum output of 76bhp at 14,500rpm and 37.6Nm at 12,500rpm. The transmission adds to impressive performance by using a bidirectional quick-shifter and a slipper/assist clutch mechanism.
The Ninja ZX-4RR has taken inspiration from the Ninja ZX-25RR model in terms of its design. It has a twin-pod headlight, full-fairing, fairing-mounted rear-view mirrors, fairing-integrated front turn indicators, and a split-style saddle.
The Ninja ZX-4RR also comes with Kawasaki Racing Team graphics that include the “Kawasaki Racing Team” decal on the fuel tank and a ZX-4RR sticker that runs across the fairing. The bike’s other styling elements include a stylish side-slung exhaust and a taillight inspired from the Ninja ZX-10R.
Kawasaki equipped the Ninja ZX-4RR with advanced features such as full-LED lighting, a Bluetooth-enabled 4.3-inch colour-TFT display that works with the Kawasaki Rideology smartphone application.
The bike has four riding modes (Sports, Road, Rain, and Rider), two power modes (full and low), a three-level traction control system, and ABS. The bike’s hardware specifications include a trellis frame, 37mm upside-down Showa SFF-BP front forks, and a rear mono-shock.
The front forks are adjustable only for preload, while the rear mono-shock features adjustability for compression, rebound, and spring preload. While Kawasaki has launched the motorcycle in Indonesia, market pundits do not expect it to arrive in India soon.
However, Kawasaki currently offers the Ninja 400 in India, which has been well-received by Indian motorbike enthusiasts.
Kawasaki has been a famous brand in the Indian motorbike market since many years. With the launch of the Ninja ZX-4RR, the company aims to strengthen its presence in Indonesia’s growing mid-range sports bike segment.
The motorcycle has already created a buzz in the Indonesian market, and Kawasaki is confident that it will receive an overwhelming response from motorbike enthusiasts in the country.
While Indian fans of Kawasaki may have to wait longer to get the new model, the Ninja 400 remains an excellent option for those looking for a mid-range sports bike in India.
