A worthy successor to the iconic Kawasaki Ninja 250R, the all-new Ninja 300 radically changes the sport touring image that its predecessor has had for over two decades. So what has changed on the baby Ninja? We bring you all the information on what is new and how!

India Kawasaki Motors, Kawasaki’s Indian subsidiary is geared up to bring in the machine onto Indian shores on April 10th 2013. So while we are desperately waiting to get our hands on the new motorcycle, here is all that is new on the Ninja 300. One look and it’s obvious that the blokes at Kawasaki have worked hard on giving the youngest Ninja a serious makeover. The sophisticated and gentleman-like aura of the Ninja 250R has been replaced by a far more appealing and aggressive design that oozes sportiness and speed like never before.

 

Amalgamating form and function, the new compact design of the machine has been sketched keeping in mind the revised placing for the radiator fan, which helps in redirecting hot air away from the rider, a major problem faced in hot weather regions like India. Improvements are not merely cosmetic but run deeper into the skin of the new Ninja 300. The new machine gets a revised liquid-cooled fuel-injected 296cc parallel twin cylinder engine that boasts a longer stroke, new aluminium die-cast cylinder which is lighter by 600gm, new cylinder head as well as a new 2-into-1 exhaust system tuned for better sport performance and even torque delivery.

Churning out a total of 39PS of power at 11,000 rpm and 27Nm of torque at 10,000rpm, the new Ninja 300 promises to be quite a thriller with a rather impressive weight figure of just 174kg (ABS). A lot of weight saving has been achieved thanks to liberal use of aluminium, for instance the lightweight supersports style foot pegs. Kawasaki has really raised the stakes as the Ninja 300 gets some really top scoring tech-bits like race-bred FCC Assist & Slipper clutch mechanism for back-torque limiting as well as a high-end ABS unit. The 140-section rear tyre too is bigger on the Ninja 300 against the 130-section found on the Ninja 250R. Phew! That’s a lot of upgrades and admirable ones which present the new Kawasaki Ninja 300 with sure-footing in the burgeoning 300-400cc segment.
