Performance-wise, it is a refiner high revving unit with redline starting at 13,000rpm- can be regarded as the beast on open highways and a delightful machine in the city. 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. The seat padding is just right -- neither too stiff nor too soft -- which is a boon for mile munching. There’s a lot of room to move around for the rider as well. However, the pillion seat is good enough only for city commutes and isn’t roomy enough for long hauls. The pillion grabrail is also well positioned for reach but honestly, the design itself is quite dreadful and detracts from the overall appearance.5 Reply
Yes, this bike is very good for long rides. First of all it has a 17 liter tank and that too with very good mileage. The seating position can be adjusted as per your requirement. There is a lot of space to move around. Also, you won't get bored on the machine as at one moment you can cruise the highways in an upright position and the next moment slide a little back on the seat and push the throttle to go in superbike mode1 Reply
According to my style of riding, It gives about 25kmpl in city and around 30kmpl on highway. May vary according to each person's style of riding. Vibrations? There are no noticeable vibrations altogether. But you might notice small increase in vibration while on 4 to 6k Rpm. Ninja 300 has one of the most refined engine in its segment. Heat management is excellent in the bike. Even in stop and go traffics, the bike excellently manages the engine temperature.0 Reply
I get a mileage of 32-35 in city. The bike is a parallel twin bike. It does not produce any vibration. The heat management is excellent in this machine. Trust me, take this for a test drive in the city and feel this for yourself. Well if you ride this over a puddle or in rain and if the water reaches the engine, you can see the steam. You can imagine how hot the engine might be. But trust me, the heat management is so good, you won't even know about this1 Reply
@ RAJU | No it doesn't all machine. All ninja 300 bikes handle shaking when speed cross 60km/hr. It's solutions never got from ninja service provider's. Thank you. It's a great machine no doubt and also aggressive price point.
Yes it does shake kawasaki has no reply to it even i faced similar issue i have changed my tyres to Michelin and could get a reasonable relief and better grip n confidence to ride.1 Reply
The cost of the Ninja is more as compared to the other bikes in the same segment because it has a parallel twin engine. All the other bikes (except Yamaha R3) have single cylinder engine. If you try to compare them in terms of refinement and other terms mentioned above, you will get to know the difference0 Reply
Seat padding is just right, neither too stiff nor too soft, Which is a boon for mile munching. The seat height of 785mm makes the Ninja 300 welcoming for most riders. Since the handlebars are slightly high-set, like that of a sports tourer, the reach is quite relaxed and doesn’t really take a toll on your shoulders or wrists. The foot pegs, though not too rear set, are set slightly on the higher side. This allows for more cornering clearance, letting you lean the bike harder in corners. But the foot position does take some slight getting used to. That said, the overall seating position isn’t uncomfortable at all.4 Reply
We won't suggest you to go for Kawasaki Ninja 300 as you might face issues in servicing your bike every time. It will totally depend on the dealership/service center that will they provide you service at your door-step. So, we would suggest you exchange your words with authorized dealership as they will be the better persons to assist you in this concern.

Hello Vivek, The Yamaha MT-03 has not been launched in India yet, and is unlikely to enter the country any time soon. The Ninja 300 on the other hand has been heavily localised with competitive pricing. It's a good all-rounder with a decent balance of efficiency and power. The TVS Zeppelin is just in its concept stage as of now. We believe TVS will take at least a year to bring the Zeppelin to production. Even then, it is likely to have only a small-capacity motor as the brand- known for sporty motorcycles would just be testing waters with a cruiser.5 Reply
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. 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. Nonetheless, a twin-cylinder at this price is pretty tempting. Here both the bikes are good enough but we would suggest you to go for Yamaha as it has a better service network as compare to Kawasaki. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers10 Reply
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.2 Reply
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.0 Reply
Both have their pros and cons...300 is super smooth and efficient....It's service cost is expensive and parts too... Too low as it hits the breakers easily..390 is raw power but have vibrations and service cost is less as compared to 300...In terms of performance, 390 has better pickup but 300 has better top speed... 390 is common and 300. Still catches other eyes...8 Reply
The BMW’s unique reverse-inclined engine helps in better mass centralisation, improved inflow and outflow of air which in turn keeps the engine cool at all times. The engine though is quite vibey, which can be felt through the handlebar, footpegs and body panels. Expect the BMW G 310 R to be quite similar to the RR 310 in terms of engine character; however, the German counterpart would be a lot more refined. The G 310 R is said to be most happy in the mid-range and kicks in slightly sooner compared to the RR 310. The refinement on the Japanese twin-cylinder is second to none. Moreover, it is assisted with a slipper clutch which makes for easy downshifts and prevents wheel hopping, something that the BMW misses out on. The power is concentrated towards the top of the rev band, with serious performance kicking in post 9,000 rpm. Heat dissipation is another big plus as it's directed to the bottom of the bike and away from the rider, keeping the engine and the rider cool. All things considered, the Kawasaki Ninja priced at Rs 2.98 lakh offers a tad more in terms of value for money. However, if you're looking for high levels of fit and finish and the BMW badge, the G 310 R priced at Rs 2.99 lakh (both ex-showroom) makes for a good proposition. Both the manufacturers offer 3 years of warranty and unlimited kilometres.

Both are almost same as they both come under same 300cc segment... Kawasaki is a bit ahead in terms of performance... seating posture is upright in Bmw and pillion comfort is also good where as in Kawasaki seating posture is forward may not be suitable for long rides and pillion comfort is not good...if you are a speed lover then go for Kawasaki...engine is more refined in Kawasaki than bmw...0 Reply
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.2 Reply
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 speed1 Reply
The 250cc faired sports bike was one of the most affordable multi-cylinder two-wheelers on sale. That was until Kawasaki decided to drop prices for the Ninja 300. It still remains the only V-twin sports bike available below the 500cc segment. While the GT250R offered a good VFM proposition, the recent localisation and price drop for the Kawasaki Ninja 300 makes the GT 250R difficult to recommend. 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.

Even if you buy, rs.40000/- Exhaust. It will still not sound like a 4 cylinder Super Bike sounds, it will be loud but sound like TEMPOO, auto rickhsa, so in my opinion don't waste money on, this exhaust's because you will only waste bucks. Instead buy some other custom parts for your bike, like cowl, Custom Handle Bar etc1 Reply
Kawasaki Ninja 400 ABS gives a mileage of 30.41kmpl on the highway, as tested by our experts. whereas the claimed aria mileage for the TVS Apache RR 310 petrol is 31kmpl. If you are on a budget and need a sports bike for yourself, then TVS Apache RR 310 is the better pick for you but if you need more power pickup and speed then go for the Kawasaki Ninja 400 ABS. But to know more about this we suggest you take a test ride of the vehicle and then decide. Read more.

Premium twin feel- Ninja 300Premium single cylinder- RR310Maintenance is cheaper in RR310. Kawasaki doesn't have free services, should spend 4-5K for a full service. Whereas RR310 will be done within 2- 2.5k max. for the first 3 free (without labour charge) services, may cost 500 more after the free ones. However spare parts of both the bikes are great quality and costly too. Mileage is better in RR310 (27-38Kmpl) against Ninja 300 (21-27Kmpl) depending on riding style. Both are sports tourers. Tank capacity is more in ninja than the RR (17Ltrs>11Ltrs). Ninja tops around 185kmph whereas RR310 does about 165kmph.6 Reply
The Ninja 300 is one of the most affordable parallel-twin motorcycles you can buy in India. It features a parallel-twin, 296cc motor that offers 39PS and 27Nm of torque.

I dont think they will discontinue. Because ninja 300 is the most affordable entry level sport bike provided by kawasaki in India. Though the Ninja 400 is next in line, the difference in Price doesnt go along with the not so major difference from Ninja 300. With the same price of Ninja 400 , people might go for the 650s or 900s which do offer more upgrades for the extra Price you pay. So i think they wont discontinue Ninja 300. Maybe Kawasaki would do some slight uogrades to the existing Ninja 300 to meet the latestvrequirements by the emission or safety standards.0 Reply
@ Arun | Both are Very similar bikes. R3 produces 42bhp and ninja produces nearly 40bhp. R3 has lower top speed than ninja. But the Ninja 300 has Slip and assist clutch which is good.
Apart from above said,Ninja and R3 have a huge price Diffrence,Ninja is more ecnomic. While maintenance is better with yamaha3 Reply
There are a number of options available in the market such as Indian Roadmaster, Yamaha YZF R1, Harley Davidson Street 750, Benelli TNT 600 I, Harley Davidson Iron 883, Ducati Scrambler, Ducati Panigale V4, Indian FTR 1200 S, Kawasaki Z900, etc. However, selecting one would depend on several factors such as budget, body type, features required, preference of engine displacement, etc. Moreover, per your requirements, we'd recommend opting for a cruiser bike that would be easier in handling and comfort.

Making alteration to the exhaust system will make the engine warranty void as the working is associated with the engine itself. However, you may connect with the nearest authorized dealership as they too offer the options of exhaust to choose from that too without affecting the warranty of the bike.

I had a drastic shift from riding a TVS wego(8 years to be precise) to the Ninja 300 when i did not even know how to ride the bike. I brought it as a new one from the showroom and trust me it is one of the best bikes in the segment. After the initial 20 minutes of riding you would feel that you have been riding this bike forever and the power it offers is spectacular. You will never regret owing the Ninja 300!!2 Reply
I would suggest spending some bucks on the frame sliders, the radiator guard and the tank pads. This is for the safety of the bike. If you check the cost of engine and the ferrings (protected by the frame slider) plus the cost of the radiator (protected by the radiator guard) that is much more than the cost of the safety kits. Ride safe.0 Reply
Standard safety kits are mandatory to buy as they add to the safety of the bike. Moreover, you may confirm with the dealership if you want to opt-out and want them installed in the aftermarket. Follow the link for dealership details - Kawasaki Bike Showrooms0 Reply
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.15 Reply
@ Sankalp | Hi I have already booked the bike, want to know the price of spare parts that have to be changed like chain sprocket etc..
@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.1 Reply
Both bikes offer neck to neck performance and features, however, we'd recommend opting the Benelli TNT 300 for its safety features, decent engine power, good exhaust sound and better seating stance. Also, Benelli offers a 5-year unlimited kilometer warranty on the TNT 300. The build quality of the TNT 300 is also good and the dual channel ABS adds to the safety. As for the vibrations, you may feel that in both bikes as they are powerful machines. For a better perspective, please visit the nearest authorized dealership and take a test ride of the vehicles.

Abs tops. Total riding pleasure. Great speeds. Excellent pick up. Beautiful looks. What a performance. Great buy. No comparisons, no choices, it is outrightly a winner, the best. Simply in love with it. Go for it with closed eyes.
Very Refined Bike. High quality Parts. Japan Quality is always supreme. Spare parts Cost are very high. Very few Service Centres. But very Satisfying bike
fantastic product. Satisfactory suspensions setup. Great yet managable power and up to par brakes. The best part about this bike is its refinement level. My experience with the service of this bike though has been below average. Borderline rude behaviour from some people.
