- 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 launched
- Demands a premium of Rs 20,000 over its BS4 model
- Remains the same in terms of design, features and cycle parts
After teasing the 2021 Ninja 300 BS6 recently, Kawasaki has finally launched the motorcycle in India. The bike maker has priced the Ninja 300 BS6 at Rs 3.18 lakh (ex-showroom) which makes it around Rs 20,000 more expensive than its BS4 counterpart. Kawasaki had discontinued the BS4 Ninja 300 in December 2019.
The new 2021 Ninja 300 doesn’t sport any major change to write home about. The only obvious revision has been executed in its 296cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine for BS6 compliance. In spite of that, Kawasaki says there’s no change in power output and that means it continues to pump out 38.4bhp and 27Nm. The engine comes mated to a six-speed gearbox along with an assist and slipper clutch.
While the styling of the motorcycle has been left unaltered, the bodywork has been bestowed with fresh decals. These graphics go well with its aggressive and sharp design that is inspired by Kawasaki’s bigger sportsbikes like the Ninja ZX-14R, ZX-10R and the ZX-6R. It is available in three colour options including Lime green, Candy Lime Green and Ebony.
On the feature front, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 is the same as before. There are a semi-digital instrument cluster, a conventional bulb-type headlamp and blinkers and an LED tail lamp. As for the hardware, it rides on 17-inch alloy wheels that are suspended by 37mm telescopic forks and a monoshock. Braking is handled by a disc at both ends with a dual-channel ABS setup.
