Kawasaki Ninja 300 India Launch 1 (3)

Only yesterday we reported that the first batch of Kawasaki Ninja 300 sportsbike have reached Bajaj-Probiking dealerships. We have been closely following the events preceding the launch of the new baby Ninja in India and are really excited about the bike being close to entering the fast growing Indian bike market. The 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 will be officially launched in India at an event that will be held in Pune tomorrow.

Full points to Bajaj for bringing the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 to India soon after its international launch last year.

The new bike has been spied in India on quite a few occasions and we reported in detail when official bookings for the new bike commenced at all Bajaj-Kawasaki dealers a few days ago.

From what can be made out from specification sheets and reviews from various international publications, the Ninja 300 appears to be a sportier iteration of the already sporty 250R. One thing that we are sure about is that the Ninja300 will be a significant step ahead towards getting rid of the void that exists between the current 250cc and the 600cc performance motorcycles.

The 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 is powered by a 296cc, liquid cooled, parallel twin cylinder engine that benefits from dual throttle valves. The new Kawasaki Ninja 300 has a maximum power output of 39 PS@11000 RPM and boasts of a max torque figure of 27 Nm@10,000 RPM. All this power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a six speed manual gearbox. The rides on 110 section tire up front and a 140 section tire at the rear.

It is being said that the new Ninja 300 sportsbike would have an on road price of close INR 4 lakhs.

The new Kawasaki Ninja 300R is looking all set to kick open gates to an altogether new segment of sportsbikes in Indian bike market. The new bike will definitely appeal to those who have always been praying for a wee bit extra from entry level sportsbikes.

We are really excited about the new bike making it to us. What about you?

    If launched any more than 3.5 on road, it will be a flop, KTM 390 is coming up !!!!! bye bye to Ninja 🙂

    This is completely my opinion and i may be wrong here, but i feel bikes in premium segment are governed by exclusivity factor. Launching to many bikes with close resemblance (engine capacity, features and looks) dilutes that exclusivity factor and intern hampers the customer loyalty. Though i agree that launching a 50+ cc bike (from predecessor 250) expands Bajaj’s product portfolio and fills the void b/w 250 and 650, however it could have been a 400 with totally different styling (to set it apart from 250 and 650).

    The famous example i would quote here is Pulsar 200, 220fi, 220(carbureted) and 220F. Bajaj launched 200 first then in 2 months launched 220fi (200 owners who bought new bike few months back felt like fools). That was not enough, if i am correct due to some problems with FI Bajaj launched 220(carburetor ver.) with a slightly better performance and Cheaper price then FI( made 220fi owners feel like fools). This did not satisfy them; they finally dug the grave for 200 and 220FI with 220F (looks similar to P200). And rest is history, the largest selling bike in this segment from Bajaj was 220 (carbureted), rest all of them had negligible sales. And now we have 200NS, though this time fortunately the styling is completely different and yes the shared tech from KTM is a big +. So my point is if Bajaj could have got 220 straight away rather than introducing 200 it won’t have diluted the sales of over all pulsar probiking segment.
