Kawasaki has revealed the BS6-compliant Ninja 300 that will arrive in the Indian market very soon. While the finer details are yet to be announced, here we tell you what to expect from the Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6.
The overall design remains similar to the BS4 model and the latest iteration of the company’s highest selling motorcycle in the country continues to pack a twin-pod headlight, fairing integrated front blinkers, a muscular fuel tank, split-style seats, and a chrome heatshield on the exhaust. While the design remains unaltered, the company has updated the graphic scheme on the Lime Green model.
The details about the colour palette are not available yet, although Kawasaki may retain all paint options from the BS4 version. The discontinued model, for reference, was available in four colours – Lime Green, Ebony/Metallic Moon Dust Grey, Candy Plasma Blue, and Lime Green/Ebony.
The mechanical specifications will retain the 296cc, parallel twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, although the power and torque output numbers could be marginally lower than the BS4 version. The old model was tuned to produce 38.4bhp and 27Nm. The engine will be paired to a six-speed gearbox.
The cycle parts will be carried forward from the BS4 version. Thus, the Ninja 300 BS6 will continue to use a tube diamond steel frame. The suspension duties will be handled by telescopic front forks and a preload-adjustable rear mono-shock. The anchoring hardware will include single discs on both wheels while the safety net will be provided by dual-channel ABS.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 should carry a marginal price premium over the BS4 model’s Rs 2.98 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) tag. The updated model could arrive in Rs 3 lakh- 3.10 lakh price range.
