Kawasaki starts its new year celebrations

Happy new year! We may have four months of 2022 to go but the first 2023 model year Kawasakis are here.

We’ve taken delivery of two all-new Ninja 400s, reintroduced for 2023, which will be joined by the naked Z400.

They have an all-new 45PS Euro 5, liquid-cooled, parallel twin, 399cc engine.

The new chassis, with more rigid 41mm diameter front forks, gives improved suspension and predictable handling.

The Ninja 400 comes in Lime Green and Ebony for the Kawasaki Racing Team edition or Metallic and Matt Carbon Gray.

The Z400 is finished in Candy Lime Green and Metallic Spark Black or Pearl Robotic White and Metallic Matte Gray.

While new 400s are arriving in our showroom, Kawasaki has also revealed its carryover models for the 2023 season.

They are expected to start arriving at our dealership from late September.

The Z900RS, Z900RS SE, Z650RS, Z900, Z900SE, Ninja 1000SX and Vulcan S join the 2023 line-up with a blend of updated colours and graphics.

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Z family in 2022, Kawasaki is now looking towards the next five decades.
