Japanese automaker Kawasaki has announced that deliveries of its BS6-compliant Ninja 300 motorbike will commence in India soon. To recall, it was launched last month and its bookings are open. As for the highlights, the two-wheeler has a sporty design, a semi-digital instrument cluster, and draws power from a 296cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine. Here's our roundup.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 is built on a diamond-steel frame and has a muscular fuel tank, a stepped-up saddle, fairing-integrated turn indicators, an upswept exhaust, and a twin-pod headlight. The bike packs a semi-digital instrument cluster, a halogen headlamp, a LED taillight, and rides on designer wheels. It is offered in three shades: Lime Green with KRT graphics, Ebony, and Candy Lime Green.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 is powered by a BS6-compliant 296cc, parallel-twin, liquid-cooled engine that generates 38.4hp of maximum power and 27Nm of peak torque. The mill is paired to a 6-speed gearbox.
To ensure the safety of the rider, 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 motorbike are taken care of by 37mm telescopic forks on the front side and Uni-Trak gas-charged shock absorbers with 5-way adjustable pre-load on the rear end.
In India, the BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 carries a price-tag of Rs. 3.18 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), which makes it roughly Rs. 20,000 more expensive than its BS4 counterpart. Its deliveries will start soon.
