Kawasaki Ninja 300 Latest Updates

The Kawasaki Ninja 300 will continue to exist once BS6 norms kick in. It was earlier believed that the Ninja 300 would face its ultimate demise as it was unlikely that it would be updated to BS6 norms. While we have come to know that the bike will be updated, it is unlikely that it will be launched before the 1 April, 2020 deadline. Click here for more details. 

Kawasaki Ninja 300 Highlights

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 equipped 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.

Ninja 300 Features

For 2018, the more affordable Kawasaki Ninja 300 for India remains unchanged on the design 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 as well. With the new price of Rs 2.98 lakh, the Ninja 300 is also Rs 62,000 cheaper than the earlier CKD model it replaces. That said, only the frame and 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 are still not radials.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 Competitors

DSK Benelli 302R: The Benelli 302R isn’t an outright performer thanks to its weight. However, if performance isn’t a priority and if you are looking for a lot of pose value, the 302R is a good option. It feels smooth, offers confidence-inspiring handling and a very dramatic exhaust note that is similar to much bigger bikes.

Yamaha YZF-R3: The 2018 Yamaha YZF-R3 comes with a 300cc, liquid-cooled, parallel twin motor that is refined, powerful and tractable. Complementing the motor is a very capable chassis that feels just right regardless of whether you are in city traffic, touring or belting down the racetrack. The introduction of ABS dor 2018 adds Rs 23,000 to the cost of the previous version, but for that, you also get stickier Metzeler Sportec M5 tyres.

KTM RC 390 : While the KTM RC 390 is priced higher than the Apache RR 310, it packs in a lot more punch packed with more tech like the slipper clutch and is a pure track-focused machine. It has remained a go-to option for riders looking for a dedicated track tool owing to its ergonomics, suspension setup and handling characteristics.

TVS Apache RR 310: The Apache RR 310, despite being designed as a track focussed bike, is quite usable in the city thanks to its torquey and tractable motor. It offers a good balance between ride and handling as well. While brakes lack initial feel, they offer good bite. Another issue is vibrations around the 6000rpm range, which TVS has reduced to a fair degree. It is a good option to the focussed KTM RC 390, trading a bit of performance for everyday usability.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Ninja 300

Q. Which is better Ninja 300 or RE Interceptor 650 if we are suffering from lower back pain?
  • As of now, Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is the option you can go for because Kawasaki Ninja 300 has not been launched yet. With just a slight hint of forward arching, the riding posture of the Interceptor is what will make Royal Enfield loyalists happy. The bars are wide and you do not have to stretch much to get to them. However, shorter riders may just find it a bit too much. The saddle height of 804mm is favorable for most riders but they will need to get used to the slightly outward footpegs. At crawling speeds or while slowing down with your feet down, the footpegs tend to hit your ankles and this could be a nuisance the first time around. Although slightly rear set, they feel quite natural, a big boon for city as well as highway riding. The seat padding is extremely soft and narrow. While you will not feel the effects during city commute, it does take a bit of a toll on you on the highway. Royal Enfield offers an optional touring seat with a thicker foam setup which should ideally solve this issue. Do take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Check out authorised dealership details.
Q. What is a double cylinder bike - Ninja 300?
  • The double cylinder engine constructed with the two cylinders that can be in the same engine block or in different blocks. In a double cylinder motorcycle engine both the cylinder performs a separate combustion process. But the pistons of both cylinder stay connected with the same crankshaft and delivers the power to the same. Hence it’s significantly efficient of producing and delivering the power as there is a very less power delivery gap to rotate the crankshaft than the single-cylinder engine.
Q. Is Kawasaki Ninja 300 is a 6 speed or 5 speed?
  • The BS4 engine was available with a 6-speed transmission and the same will be available in BS6 version too.

Q. Which is best KTM RC390 or Kawasaki Ninja 300
  • Writing my thoughts assuming you are going to use the bike in city and daily commute.Yamaha R3....Most Reliable, Fuel Efficient, Comfortable, can be used for city commute as well as for touring and has a very linear power delivery. It is little costly than the KTM RC but cheaper than the Ninja. But you can use it as long as you want it in your garage and will give you a better resale price as well. For Ninja, it is not at all reliable, and comes with a lot of maintainence cost - ride it or don't ride! Also its not a VFM machine. It is comfortable and little fuel efficient, but lacks service convenience as compared to Yamaha.For KTM RC, not at all comfortable, it is way too track focused and I assume you don't live on tracks here in India. Not at all a reliable machine and will stay good for a couple of years (can't ignore it's manufactured by Bajaj) and will show its ageing after that with service costs and sudden breakdowns. It is the cheapest sport bike out there in that range, but is certainly not the most ideal chose to make.
  • Rc390 is fun bike for short rides. But it heats a lot in busy traffic. I do agree with you about service and spare parts of ktm bikes. But if you live in capital cities like the Delhi, lucknow, Mumbai, pune etc then you don't have to worry about ninja bikes too. Ninja will always last longer than ktm. And you will get mob attention too while riding. Ninja is always a premium bike. Enjoy this, it requires handling with care! Also, you would love to see ninja 300 beating Rc390 in terms of top speed
  • Both have their pros and cons...refinement is flawless in Ninja and there are no vibrations as it's a parallel twin setup. RC has a very aggressive seating where as Ninja is very comfortable...In terms of after sales service and spare parts, KTM scores as Kawasaki service is very expensive
