The switchgear and the grip is made up of high plastic and the piano black on every switch is an excellent

Ergonomics – The seating position on the 300 is comfortable yet sporty at the same You do get the big bike feel when you are Thanks to the lower set foot and 790 mm seat height, any average rider’s feet can touch the The seat cushioning is on the harder for both the rider and the pillion. The is sculpted according to the seating so you can grip the tank when enthusiastically.

The rear view are well positioned and offer a view of what is behind. rides will be comfortable on the 300.

Performance and Gearbox – The Ninja 300 is powered by a twin-cylinder, fuel-injected, 296cc, 8-valve churning out 39 PS at 11,000 RPM and 27 Nm of torque at RPM. This all aluminium is derived from the Ninja The … has been lengthened for the cubic capacity. The valves are now the pistons are lighter and a new exhaust and a sleeveless cylinder head has added.

The compression ratio has reduced to take out the maximum with the use of normal unleaded

The fuelling is the most astonishing of this bike. It manages to adequate low-end torque to around town. The action after 6000 RPM and after RPM it rushes insanely quick to its RPM redline. The entire rev band is no jerkiness and no sudden spikes. the redline cut out is smooth and one can hold it as as needed.

The new 32 mm throttle bodies make response precise and linear. NVH are excellent. Vibes are well thanks to the rubber mounts for the

The engine is mated to a slick 6-speed gearbox assisted by a clutch. The cogs have teeth to get power from the top end of the rev (where the power and torque is) but the between the cogs is less geared). Therefore, once you are in the band and start shifting acceleration off the line is very and the bike can reach up to 130-140 in no time.

The clutch is light and The slipper clutch works and does exactly what it is to do, aid confidence when riding on a windy twisty road. At any speed, you can downshift and the wheels not lock up.

Newbie and average trying to corner fast actually end up cornerning a lot faster they expect.

Riding – The Ninja 300′s chassis is from the 250R but there are a of changes to make it far more rich. The main tubes been strengthened using tensile steel for accompanying the powerful engine. The chassis has been shortened by 70 mm for better and braking.

The wheelbase has gone by 5 mm, adding stability and aiding in better (avoiding power wheelies) accelerating hard of the line.

The has been lowered by 5 mm but the weight has up by 3 kgs. The damping of the front and suspension has been revised, and it The Ninja 300 handles beautifully. It is and remains poised in the corners and the line well. The new 140 mm section IRC grip well but an upgrade to compound tyres of same will aid in more confidence.

pegs are set lower, a bit higher and your knee down have been a lot easier. The is not crisp and enjoyable due to increase in degree and trail. Nevertheless, the has its own benefits.

The Kawasaki Ninja 300 more stable and is more while changing directions at speeds. The able chassis and can handle a bit more oomph The Ninja feels quite when it comes to cutting traffic.

No doubt that the 300 will do track days but the is not a track-focused monster (the why the “R” nomenclature has not been adopted for the 300). The 290 mm petal discs at the and 220 mm petal disc at the rear two-pot Nissin callipers on sides do a good job of slowing from high speeds. A bit would have been (ABS could have in this regard).

Miscellaneous – An upgrade to sticky compound tyres of the same will aid a lot more confidence. The act as DRL and the right one stays on always. The clearance is low, but even a pillion or missing speed at high speeds saw nothing the ground, thanks to the stiff

Factory rear suspension is on the softer side; adjust as per needs. Head light is wide and the illumination is superb. The cluster is not particularly huge but is not either.

There is a storage under the seat and another compartment below the first too, neat! As every bike, fit and finish is excellent and job is deep. There are no uneven gaps and high quality are used.

Hooks below the seat are there to tie extra There are no grab rails but is recess right below the seat to hold on too, a effective and weight saving Heat dissipation promised by works well, the rider that the heat is not directly their legs anymore other liquid-cooled bikes.

Kudos to Kawasaki for this feature!

Verdict – The Ninja is and with a loud bang. The ZX inspired aesthetics, the potent the able chassis and the amazing all combined, make it an excellent The Ninja 300 makes it clear it is a complete all-rounder. The motorcycle is on top of the when it comes to practicality, usability and overall comfort makes it a real strong

However, given the high (which has been the case of in the quarter litre segment), the of ABS (not even as an option in disappoints the enthusiasts. Nevertheless, should stop you from the good times roll.

The Ninja 300 is a brilliant package, it is so in multiple ways, that it has no competition to fight.
