Design and Features

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4RR maintains the aggressive design language synonymous with the brand. The bike features a twin LED headlight setup with sharp edges that enhance its supersport aesthetic. It is currently available in the iconic Kawasaki Lime Green/Ebony color scheme.


Under the hood, the Ninja ZX-4RR is powered by a 399cc liquid-cooled in-line four engine, delivering 77PS at 14,500rpm and 39Nm at 13,000rpm. This represents a slight increase over the Ninja ZX-4R, which produces 75PS and 37.6Nm. With the RAM air intake, the ZX-4RR’s maximum power output reaches 80PS. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox, featuring an assist-and-slipper clutch and a bi-directional quickshifter as standard.

Chassis and Suspension

The ZX-4RR shares its steel trellis frame with the ZX-4R but boasts an upgraded suspension setup. It includes a 37mm preload adjustable Showa SFF-BP (Separate Function Fork-Big Piston) inverted fork and a fully adjustable Showa BFRC-lite monoshock.

Wheels and Brakes

The bike rides on 17-inch alloy wheels fitted with 120-section front and 160-section rear tubeless tyres. Braking is handled by twin 290mm discs at the front with 4-piston calipers and a 220mm single-piston caliper disc at the rear, equipped with dual-channel ABS as standard. The ZX-4RR offers a ground clearance of 135mm, a seat height of 800mm, a kerb weight of 189kg, and a fuel tank capacity of 15 litres.

Technology and Riding Modes

The ZX-4RR comes with a 4.3-inch TFT display providing readouts such as speed, tachometer, fuel level, gear position, odometer, and trip meter. The display offers two modes: Normal and Circuit, and features smartphone connectivity through Kawasaki’s ‘Rideology the App’.

Riders can choose from four riding modes: Rain, Road, Sport, and Rider. The customizable ‘Rider’ mode allows for fine-tuning the riding experience. Additionally, the ZX-4RR is equipped with Kawasaki’s traction control system for enhanced safety.

Market Position

The Kawasaki Ninja ZX-4RR currently stands without direct competition in the Indian market. Comparable alternatives include the Kawasaki Ninja 650 and the Ninja ZX-4R, both offering similar performance levels. For those seeking more power, the Kawasaki Z900 is priced at Rs 9,38,000, only Rs 28,000 more than the ZX-4RR.
