– Anticipated to feature retro styling

– Likely to be equipped with an inline-four engine

– Expected to be launched in India by 2025

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4R, celebrated for its modern design and the power of its inline-four engine, recently made its debut in India with a price tag of Rs 8.5 lakh (ex-showroom). Speculations from Japan now suggest that Kawasaki is in the process of developing a Z400 RS model based on the ZX-4R.

Kawasaki’s RS series is known for presenting heritage models in a modern avatar. Following the trend of minimal styling with elements like a circular headlamp, teardrop-shaped tank, and twin-pod cluster, the Z400 RS is expected to adhere to this design philosophy. In contrast to its siblings with parallel-twin engines, the Kawasaki Z400 RS is likely to feature the same 399cc inline four-cylinder motor, delivering 75.9bhp at 14,500rpm and 39Nm at 13,000rpm. Feature-wise, expectations include ride modes, connectivity features for the TFT cluster, traction control, and dual-channel ABS.

If the Kawasaki Z400 RS comes to fruition, it is poised to appeal to retro motorcycle enthusiasts by combining nostalgic charm with modern technology. While an official timeline is not confirmed, there are speculations that the Z400 RS could be launched in India by 2025, offering a unique proposition in its segment.
