Kawasaki’s 39 horsepower Ninja 300 superbike

Kawasaki’s best-selling is not the lightning fast Ninja litre sports bike. the Japanese bike still in the for the World Superbike Championship. Nor is it the 200 mph ZX-14R Ninja projectile. it’s the diminutive Ninja 250 translates the performance DNA of the brand a more practical and affordable bike with definite aspirations.

On the fortieth anniversary of the which changed everything original 900cc Z1 superbike ), has announced a 300cc version of its four-…, parallel-twin Ninja and those sporting aspirations been comprehensively realized.

A redesign of the 250 was recently announced for the marketplace after three of incremental improvement and the new 300 gets all features, plus an extra

Most significantly, the engine is new, and although the … is slightly longer, the power of the new liquid-cooled, DOHC, 8-valve, parallel twin is claimed to be 29 or 38.9 horsepower — roughly a 20% increase in power the current Ninja 250 and puts it the same performance envelope of the two-… quarter liter of not-long-ago. and instead of the hydrocarbon-broadcasting, disasters of yesteryear, we now have fuel-injected, responsive and squeaky engines which the other motorcycle manufacturers will not be to match, at least not in the foreseeable

Both the new Ninja 250R and 300 are clearly aimed at Honda’s single-cylinder CBR250R which has significant market share the Ninja in many important marketplaces since its release.

It’s not surprising that the CBR250R should draw an aggressive response from — just as prestige brands provide entry-level to introduce aspiring enthusiasts to brand, the emergence of dozens of and Korean brands has now elevated the establishment into the utmost strata of motorcycledom.

Accordingly, and Kawasaki are fighting over they perceive as long-term so the prestige/horsepower war that has traditionally fought with flagship liter-plus models has now being to Defcon 1 in the lower, entry-level

A quick perusal of the specifications a completely new motorcycle — new new induction, new frame, new suspension, new new wheels, and a superbike class set — many of the features sell liter-bike supersport have been added to the Ninja.

Apart from the massive boost, clumsy agricultural have been replaced finely calibrated, second-generation and features which have recently become available on contenders have been to the mix — a 290mm petal-disk, brake, advanced suspension, and a slipper clutch.

The slipper was derived to mitigate the engine of high compression racing on the entry into corners on the and not all that long ago.

from adding unnecessary on the engine, chain, clutch and the dysfunctional stress of engine unsettled the bike on corner and getting a bike into a on the limits no longer required the effects of engine braking as the disk brake had more enough power and feel to optimum retardation. What was a bonus on big four-… singles anemic drum rear had become a problem and the slipper was the answer.

Such invention is less a quarter century old at the elite of motorsport, so whether it’s on an entry-class machine is debatable – reserve judgement on the need for a clutch on such a small engine until we’ve one. Whilst it sounds a minor case of overkill, it may be another refinement on the way to the perfect for riders who have not yet developed the to push a motorcycle to its limits.

The ABS (anti-lock braking system) is to be significantly more sophisticated, and a new rigid diamond frame, suspension, a wider 140 mm rear better heat management (to hot air away from the rider), a range of features from Ninja and ZZR models such as a floating windscreen, dual similar to the Ninja ZX-6R, a fairing and wheel design, foot-pegs and a silencer shaped more like the bigger models (and far more in its design.)

There’s also a new instrumentation package, with an tachometer, a multi-function LCD including gauge, dual trip clock, and an Economical Riding

The new Kawasaki Ninja 300 will be at Kawasaki dealerships later month or next. Different and specifications will be available in markets, but for now, we’re of Pearl Stardust White, or Special Edition Lime liveries, and some markets get ABS as standard, while others get them as optional. Pricing has not yet announced.
