Adding more love to the A2 licence middleweight category, Kawasaki have ditched the old Z300 in favour of a new Z400 powered by the engine from the Kawasaki Ninja 400.
The old Kawasaki Z300 took a bit of flak for coming in well under the A2 power limit but that should be no issue with the new bike which is both more powerful and lighter weight than the old model.
The styling is pure classic Kawasaki, with the trellis frame shouting H2, while also giving the bike light and predictable handling. As expected for a bike aimed at new riders the Z400 has a low seat height and an easy to use slip assist clutch.
It’s also bristling with modern tech such as LED lighting, a digital speedo, gear position indication and the infamous ‘balls of wool’ economical riding indicator.
