Inside Motorcycles Commuter Series - 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400

Written by  on Friday, 17 August 2018 09:16

Welcome back to Inside Motorcycles’ online Commuter Bike series and a look at the 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 400.

With an increasing number of urban residents turning to motorcycles as a method of commuting to and from work and around town, we have created this unique video series to focus on this growing segment. Every month a test rider will be invited to join us for a ride through one of Canada’s major urban centres and then provide their thoughts on whether or not the motorcycle measures up in each of the following categories:

• Affordability

• Performance and handling

• Appeal to new riders

• Capacity / Utility

• Overall styling

On behalf of all of us at Inside Motorcycles, I hope that you enjoy this series and encourage you to send us your thoughts and feedback.
