Q. Which is better Ninja 300 or Duke 390?
  • The KTM 390 Duke has always come across as a value for money product and the new variant takes the VFM quotient a notch up as it looks a lot more irresistible now. It gets an LED headlight unit and colour display that we like a lot and also handles beautifully with its aptly tuned suspension setup. Also, while it may not be as quick as the earlier 390, it certainly is a lot more refined. The 390 Duke is a wild beast and is meant for a lot more experienced riders and thrill seekers. On the other hand, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 hasn't garnered a lot of fame in India, owing to its price tag. But with the new pricing, the future looks a lot more promising for the Ninja 300. It does come across as a very potent track tool with not so sharp ergonomics as the KTM. Making it a more approachable machine for riders to use it for their daily stints as well. Plus at Rs 58,000 you get an extra cylinder over the Duke 390 and a reliable Japanese brand name. Power though is still not at par with the KTM. Nonetheless, a twin-cylinder at this price is pretty tempting.
  • Both are good in 2 different areas. Ninja is more of a sports tourer with very refined engine( Japanese bikes) Has higher top speed. Has good road presence. But lacks many of the techs found in duke 390.Duke 390 has less refined engine . But offers lots of tech like tft display which displays lots of information.
  • Ninja is much better than ktm as Kawasaki has many years experience in building refined and powerful engines and after price drop it is most affordable if we compare expense with its performance because in 300 cc segment it is the most powerful sports bike.

  • Both are frm different categories tvs has single cylinder Kawasaki has twin cylinder always two is better than one

Q. I want sports tourer, which one will be good Ninja 300 or Yamaha R3?
  • I have never used a Yamaha R3 but one of my friend ho has this bike says that it is a ball crusher (i am talking about your balls here). I have a new Ninja 300 (2019 model) and i can tell you that its the perfect bike for touring as well as for city rides. Also it has an advantage in terms of tank capacity which is 17 liters which is very important considering the fact that the bike should be a tourer. If you are curious about the user experience for Kawasaki Ninja 300 please feel free to contact me.
  • @sankalp : the cost of the spare parts has reduced drastically. Earlier the total cost of all the spare parts was around 2.5 Lakhs and now it has reduced to 50k.
  • Both are equally good. R3 has tad more power but more expensive too, atleast by 50k.
