Kawasaki has introduced the 2021 Model Year Ninja 400 in the United States with three new colour options. Furthermore, the engine has also been updated to match the new stringent Euro5 standards. The new colour livery is also likely to make its way in the Indian market when the brand gives the Ninja 400 a BS6 upgrade. The new colours are also likely to appear on the 2021 Ninja 400 sold in global markets.
The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 400 now comes with a new PEARL NIGHTSHADE TEAL/METALLIC SPARK BLACK, a teal shade with a combination of black and contrasting white graphics on the body and white rim stripes. The second is the PASSION RED, red colour with a combination of very subtle white body graphics and white rim stripes. The third is METALLIC GRAPHITE GRAY/METALLIC MAGNETIC DARK GRAY, a combination of light grey and dark grey colours with contrast green graphics on the body, side panels, tail ‘400’ moniker and rim stripes.
The Teal livery is also marketed as the 2021 Ninja 400 SE (Special Edition) in the Australian market. Recently the Teal and the Grey livery were also introduced in the Thai market along with other liveries taking the colour count to 15 colour options. The Kawasaki Ninja 400 in the Thai market already comes with Metallic Black with Phantom Blue, Metallic Magnetic Dark Grey/Ebony, Lime/Ebony KRT Edition, Lime Green/Metallic Sparkle Black, Lime Green KRT Edition, Passion Red/Sparkle Black, Pearl Blizzard White/Metallic Sparkle Black, Blue, Silver, Candy Plasma Blue and Metallic Sparkle Black.
In the engine department, the brand has upgraded the 2021 Ninja 400 to match the latest emission standards but apart from that motorcycle remains mechanically unchanged.

In its BS4 avatar, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 is powered by a 399cc parallel twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled 4-stroke, 8-valve DOHC engine with fuel injection that produces 49 Ps of power and 38 Nm of torque matched to a 6-speed return type gearbox.
The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 400 with the new colours is sold at the price of USD 4,999 to 5,199 MSRP for the Non ABS model and USD 5,399 to 5,599 MSRP for the ABS model. The BS4 Ninja 400 in India is priced at INR 4.99 lakh.
