Where did this sneak up from?
I only found it after searching for Ninja 400 (which is is..)
Although I was reffering to the old one :p

Anyway:





Looks a bit small ish to me, kind of like the ninja 250, but with styling taken more from the 600 ninja.

It's the ER6f with the engine sleeved down, is what I have heard on the grapevine from the men in green.

Well that's no good if it's True Benji.
Isn't that gonna make it the same as the Ninja 250? Far too heavy for its engine, low powered and not a good addition to the Ninja name?

He said it was kinda lack lustre and crap.

It's all about the new licensing laws if they come in, they weren't initially looking at bringing into this country. Green, there are colours apart from green ;)

203 kg! WTF? :eek: Correct me if I am wrong, but that's alot for a 400cc! My mates RVF 400 is only like 140 kg!
Our bike is 138kg with full tank and only 125.

Thanks for reminding me that the YZF R125 is a 125cc lol!
Lol sorry didn't mean it like that I was more talking about weight over size of engine as previous was talking about a 400 being 140kg which is pretty much same weight as our bike.

the lump itself in the R125 weighs very little. i wouldn't have thought a 400cc v-twin would need to be nearly twice the size of a 125. the R6 is only 180KGs.

The R125 is a lot fatter than it could be. Especially for its engine size.
The RS125 is only about 135kg, and the CBR only 130ish.
I don't see any reason why a 400 should ever be 200kg, unless the engine comes from a tank.

Yeah i am sure they could have made our bike much lighter but it would not have looked as nice and big bikeish as it does.
