Kawasaki Z400 (2019 onwards)

The Kawasaki Z400 is an affordable A2-legal naked bike with a relatively strong 400cc engine that makes the bike perform well at higher speeds. It features a modern design and very good build quality, which is hard to find on most motorcycles in this price category.

Thanks to its compact, lightweight construction, the Kawasaki Z400 is super-easy to ride. The bike is great for riding around town and commuting, but it can handle motorways as well. The seating position is low and narrow, so if you are a shorter rider, it will fit you perfectly.

In terms of equipment, the bike comes with ABS and LCD screen, which is the industry standard. Other than that, you will also get non-adjustable forks and budget Dunlop tires with the bike.
