Kawasaki Ninja 300 Revealed Officially– Quick Preview, Features And Specifications

Remember the last news on Kawasaki where we reported that the sport bike maker is planning to launch Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Kawasaki Ninja 400R in US? Well the news has turned into reality partially. Kawasaki has unveiled the Ninja 300 for Europe recently and let me tell you friends, it is going to be hit for sure.

We were definitely expecting the Ninja 400R, but Ninja 300 was least expected since the company already has Ninja 250R and there is not much difference between the two. But actually the company has planned to replace the 250R with the all new 300 and we are glad to hear that. Undoubtedly the bike looks fabulously fresh and has an aggressive design.

The is an improved Ninja 250R you can say and equips a 4 stroke, 296 CC engine having a parallel twin configuration. Contrastingly it is fuel injected motor which can deliver a max power of 3.8 BHP at 11,000 RPM and peak torque of 27 Nm at 10,000 RPM. This liquid cooled, DOHC, 8 Valve unit is a true powerhouse and offers instantaneous thrust. Some of the highlighting things about this bike is the Diamond tube type steel frame – a brilliant frame that helps the bike aggressively without losing stability, newly designed  alloys, ABS etc.

Pricing wise it will be quite close to 250R but since it is a major improvement over the same, we think the price will be well justified.
