The 2022 Ninja 400 features a parallel twin-stroke DOHC powertrain fed by a pair of 32mm throttle bodies.

The Dunlop Sportmax GPR-300 tires are up to the demands of the Ninja 400 as they perform well in canyons, during daily commutes and have a long lifespan. A single semi-floating 310mm disc with a twin-piston caliper up front does an excellent job of slowing the 366-pound bike.
