Kawasaki got the world drooling over the newly released images of the Ninja 250, however the official release now sings a totally different tune

 

296 cc parallel twin engine

 

 

 

The fuel injected parallel twin unit will now displace an impressive 296cc with dual throttle valves. Guaranteeing effortless performance over long riding hours will be thanks to the changes in the heat management and will also result in lesser heat reaching the rider. Large openings in the fairing will mean a better intake via the radiator fan which is now covered. Expect a considerable bump in power and torque.

 

 

Beefed up chassis

 

 

 

The chassis has been beefed up as well while rubber bushings further cut down vibrations. A suspension upgrade has been carried out as well to go with the other updates. With the CBR already the ABS option, Kawasaki has left no stones unturned either and the new bike from Team Green will be available with ABS option as well. Kawasaki also informs that the new ABS control unit is the worlds smallest yet and will provide amazing stopping prowess.

 

However the most surprising announcement is the inclusion of a slipper clutch which will be the first in a small displacement motorcycle. The new Ninja 300 will be unveiled in a week's time at the Ninja Times Square Take Over event in the United States. Another interesting fact is that the this baby Ninja will be a 300 only for the European market. The Japs and the Americans might continue with a 250 cc configuration with the possibilty of the 300 following suite. Atleast we hope India gets the 300. Keep watching this space for more!
