Kawasaki starts deliveries of 2022 Ninja 300 bike in India
Japanese automaker Kawasaki has started the deliveries of its 2022 Ninja 300 motorbike in India. To recall, it was launched here last month. As for the highlights, the vehicle has an imposing design and offers a semi-digital instrument cluster as well as a halogen headlamp. It is fueled by a 296cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that churns out a maximum power of 38.4hp.
Why does this story matter?
The Ninja 300 is the entry-level model in Kawasaki's Indian portfolio and the changes in the 2022 model are limited to mere cosmetic updates. The new version of the vehicle has also received a cost hike on our shores. However, this hardly comes as a surprise considering the stress created by rising input costs on all automakers here.
The motorcycle has a windscreen and alloy rims
The 2022 Kawasaki Ninja 300 sports a muscular fuel tank, split-style seats, a side-mounted exhaust, a raised transparent windscreen, and arrowhead-shaped mirrors. The bike packs a halogen headlamp, an LED taillight, a semi-digital instrument, and rides on alloy wheels shod in tubeless tires. It is up for grabs in three shades, namely Lime Green, Ebony, and Candy Lime Green.
It runs on a 38hp, 296cc engine
The new Kawasaki Ninja 300 is powered by a BS6-compliant 296cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that generates a maximum power of 38.4hp and a peak torque of 27Nm. The motor is linked to a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper and assist clutch.
It gets telescopic front forks
To ensure the safety of the rider, the new version of the Kawasaki Ninja 300 is equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with dual-channel ABS for better handling on the roads. Suspension duties on the sports bike are taken care of by 37mm telescopic forks on the front side and a gas-charged shock absorber on the rear end.
