The displacement is obtained through the hole and stroke of 70.00 mm x 51.8 mm. High engine performance has been achieved
through careful airbox and entry design as well as engine internals.

allowing passengers to hear more clearly the input signal from the engine when

the gentle response of the engine, allowing the torque valleys to be turned off.

relieves pressure on the clutch plates to reduce return torque and help prevent
the rear tire jumping and skidding.
Kawasaki technology, such as the radiator fan cover, located behind the
radiator, directs hot air to the sides away from the pilot, reducing the pilot
discomfort. Redirecting hot air also helps to keep the tank, frame and other
parts that come into contact with the pilot's cooler. The heat management system is designed to
using computational fluid dynamics analysis and does not require additional parts to
flow of air into the engine compartment.
advanced research of dynamic stiffness analysis was used in the design of the

to ensure the best
rigidity and produce light and agile handling characteristics. A rigid

the frame to increase stiffness. The chassis has a supersport style design with
short wheelbase and long swingarm, which is complemented by a steep caster
angle that offers natural sporty handling. A short wheelbase on the new Z400 contributes

was important to keep the weight low and wheelbase short on the chassis
design, it was also crucial to maintain the handling characteristics by adding
length for the swingarm. The swingarm and the design of the mounting plate helped
contribute to the overall light weight of the bike. The cast aluminum swing arm
the mounting plate eliminates the need to add additional cross-pieces
to the frame because it fits into the back of the engine, allowing the pivot
shaft to cross the plate and mount the swing arm directly on the engine. Forming
the oscillating arm of the square tubing eliminates the need for additional reinforcement,
maintaining rigidity and keeping weight to a minimum.
In addition to the engine and the frame, other important
