The new Ninja 300 looks similar to the latest generation of the Ninja 250 and is definitely more stylish and modern than the earlier generation of Ninja 250 that is on sale in our country. The Ninja 300 has a more sculpted look and comes with a wider front fascia that sports a twin headlight setup instead of the old 250’s single headlamp unit. Other big change that is quick to catch attention is the part digital instrument panel instead of the old 250’s all analogue setup that missed out on a fuel gauge but came with a lot of memories of the 80s.

The new Kawasaki Ninja 300 has a definite power advantage over both the new and the earlier generation of the 250cc variant. The new Ninja 300 comes with a slipper clutch setup that makes the bike the first low capacity sportsbike in India to boast of such an arrangement. The new Kawasaki Ninja 300 has a maximum power output of 38.45 bhp @ 11,000 rpm and a peak torque figure of 27 Nm @ 10,000 rpm. The makers of the new Kawasaki Ninja 300 claim that the new bike has been endowed with enough low end torque for comfortable city riding.

We are pretty sure that the new bike will open gates to a new segment in Indian performance bike market. The new bike would also tickle the taste buds and satisfy the hunger of all those Indian performance bike aficionados who have been wishing more from entry level 250cc sportsbikes.
