Kawasaki is yet to introduce the updated BS 6 variant of the Ninja 300 motorcycle within the Indian market, while the remainder of the larger Ninja variants have already received the BS 6 update. The now-discontinued Ninja 300 BS 4 was earlier priced at ₹2.98 lakh.The 2021 model is likely to carry forward without many styling or mechanical changes, apart from the upgrade to BS6. However, given the fact that Kawasaki is increasing localised content on the motorcycle, the price is expected to come down even further.
Ninja 300 Specifications
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 is powered by a 296cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin engine, which produces 39PS at 11,000rpm and 27Nm at 10,000rpm, mated to a 6-speed gearbox.
The 300cc Kawasaki is provided with 37mm telescopic front forks and a five-way adjustable gas-charged monoshock at the rear. The Ninja 300 rides on 17-inch wheels shod with 110/70 section front tyre and a 140/70 section rear tyre.
Braking is managed by a 290mm petal disc up front and a 220mm petal disc at the rear, with ABS now as standard.
For 2018, the cheaper Kawasaki Ninja 300 for India remains unchanged on the planning front. However, it does get new colour additions - Lime Green and Blue and new graphics too. The KRT edition though has been discontinued. The semi-digital instrument cluster has been retained also . With the new price of Rs 2.98 lakh, the Ninja 300 is additionally Rs 62,000 cheaper than the sooner CKD model it replaces. That said, only the frame and therefore the engine comes from Thailand now. The body panels, alloy wheels, tyres and brakes are now made in India. While tyres have changed from IRC to MRF Zappers, they're still not radials.
