Two is better than one, isn’t it? In this case, it may be a little hard to tell but let’s not digress. The next thing to come from Team Green is the Ninja ZX-4RR. That’s two Rs, not one. However, the catch is that it will be offered in limited numbers only, so you might want to talk to your dealer already.

How is the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4RR different from the ZX-4R? While it receives 37 mm USD Showa SFF-BP forks (same as the ZX-4R), this one gets preload adjustability. The ZX-4RR derives its rear suspension from its big brother, the ZX-10RR; a fully-adjustable Showa BFRC-lite gas-charged monoshock, with a piggyback reservoir and a top-out spring.

The high-tensile steel trellis frame is the same as on the ZX-4R, and the braking hardware has also been retained; 290-mm semi-floating twin discs with monobloc four-piston callipers up front, along with a 220-mm disc with a single-piston calliper at the rear.

It retains the same 399 cc liquid-cooled inline-four powertrain, producing 76.4 bhp at 14,500 rpm and 4 kgm of torque at 13,000 rpm. With RAM air intake, the power output goes up to 78.7 bhp. The six-speed gearbox gets a quickshifter as standard, along with a slip-and-assist clutch.

With the global price of the Kawasaki Ninja ZX–4RR converted to Rs 8.05 lakh without taxes, we expect it to receive a slight bump for the Indian market.
