Kawasaki now offers a total of 4 colour options for the Ninja 300 while the powertrain and prices have remained unchanged
Kawasaki has introduced two new colour options for their popular entry level Ninja 300 ABS model without increasing the price. The two new colour options include Lime Green and Metallic Moon Dust Grey. The 2019 Kawasaki Ninja 300 is priced at Rs 2.98 lakhs (ex-showroom) which is almost Rs 80,000 less compared to the CBU variant of the motorcycle which was sold earlier in the country.
Despite the price hike during the month of April 2019, the prices of the locally assembled Ninja 300 have remained unchanged. Although the motorcycle hasn’t received any major cosmetic updates but the new graphics and paint scheme makes the bike look a lot cleaner. The large Ninja lettering on the fairing has now been replaced with a smaller 300 logo with racing stripes around it.
After Kawasaki reduced the overall pricing of the motorcycle, it went on to become their best selling model in the Indian market. This entry-level model has also crossed the 1000 unit sales mark in record time. The good news is that besides the massive ex-showroom price cut, Kawasaki have also reduced the spare parts prices as well.
That said, the entry-level Ninja 300 inherits some of its DNA from the winner of WSBK championship model Ninja ZX-10R and can be an ideal motorcycle for those customers who are upgrading from 150 to 300cc segment.
It is powered by a 296cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that produces about 39 PS of peak power at 11,000 rpm and 27 Nm of peak torque at 10,000 rpm. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox and it even gets an assist & slipper clutch as well.
The motorcycle uses a conventional telescopic front fork at the front and an adjustable monoshock unit at the back. The braking duties are handled by a 290mm disc up front and a 220 mm petal disc at the rear. Like we already mentioned above the motorcycle now gets a dual channel ABS for the safety of its rider.
