Exciting to finally see it for sale on Kawasaki's US website.
I really hope this Ninja 400 launches well here and other companies, especially Yamaha, follow suit with their own 400cc bikes.
Being marketed differently from the Ninja 250 & 300 as a little less of a "beginner friendly" bike, I'm really hoping the slightly taller seat height of the Ninja 400 is maintained by other manufacturers while retaining the forward pegs and "upright" seating position.
I was really crushed by the diminutive feel of Yamaha's R3 compared to my CBR250R. A slightly taller seat - even by just a few cc's - on a Yamaha 400 would be all it would take to get me back onto a Yamaha again.
