About Ninja 300

The Kawasaki Ninja 300 was launched in October 2013 and has proven to be a worthy successor to the Ninja 250R. Introduced here in 2008, the 250R was considered to be the world’s favourite 250cc bike until it was challenged by Honda CBR 250R. But instead of going the single-cylinder way, the Japanese manufacturer upped the ante by adding more punch to the parallel twin-equipped product.

The Kawasaki Ninja 300 was launched in October 2013 and has proven to be a worthy successor to the Ninja 250R. Introduced here in 2008, the 250R was considered to be the world’s favourite 250cc bike until it was challenged by Honda CBR 250R. But instead of going the single-cylinder way, the Japanese manufacturer upped the ante by adding more punch to the parallel twin-equipped product.

The Ninja 300 gets many styling updates to make sure it isn’t confused with the ‘old’ Ninja 250R. The front cowl gets a different twin headlamp setup, inspired from the much bigger ZX-10R. It also gets an analog digital meter, fuel gauge and pass-light switch which was missing in the Ninja 250R. ABS has now been introduced, bringing it on par with the competition like the KTM RC390 and Honda CBR250R that have offered it for a few years now.

The Ninja 300 delivers 39bhp and 28Nm of torque from its 296cc, liquid-cooled, DOHC parallel twin engine. The engine weight has been reduced using sleeveless cylinders, lighter pistons and a redesigned head, crankcase and oil pan. The engine is mated to a six-speed gearbox and it has a slipper clutch. The Ninja 300 is available in three colour schemes, lime green, green/black and blue/black. At Rs 2.98 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), it is the most affordable Kawasaki in India (yes, it is even more affordable than the Z250!) thanks to localisation. It thus sits in a sweet pricing spot between the locally manufactured single-cylinder fully faired motorcycles like the KTM RC390 and TVS Apache RR310 and the likes of the twin-cylinder imports like the Yamaha YZF-R3. You can even have a BMW G310R streetbike at almost the same price as the Ninja 300 ABS.

We should have compared these two motorcycles a while ago. The Benelli 302R and the Kawasaki Ninja 300 are, after all, most compared against each other. But, the Kawasaki press bike wasn’t available in BS-IV form for the longest time. And, when it was, we were bombarded...

Kawasaki enjoyed an illustrious status in India for a long time, thanks to the monopoly of the Ninja 250R. However, competition from the fuel-injected Honda CBR250R meant that the Kawasaki had to up the ante with the Ninja 300. Now though, Yamaha is threatening to shake...
