That the Kawasaki Ninja 300 India launch will soon happen is a well known fact. Enough has already been speculated about the upcoming bike and we recently reported in detail when some of the Bajaj-Kawasaki dealers opened the ‘unofficial bookings’ of the soon-to-be-launched bike.

The bookings for the upcoming Kawasaki Ninja 300 have now officially commenced in India and all the Bajaj Kawasaki showrooms are accepting bookings of the Ninja 300. The booking amount for the bike is INR 40,000 and deliveries would start within 3 weeks.

India will get the non-ABS version and the new bike will have an ex-showroom price of around INR 3.8 lakhs.  The bike will go on sale in two colours- white and Ninja green.

The Ninja 300 will most likely replace the 250R and will have a considerable power advantage over the 250cc variant. The new bike has a slipper clutch and will become the first low capacity sportsbike in India to have this arrangement. Visually, the Ninja 300 is identical to the new 2013 Ninja 250R. The new Ninja 300 develops a max power figure of 38.45 bhp @ 11,000 rpm and a peak torque output of 27 Nm @ 10,000 rpm. Kawasaki claims that the new bike has been endowed with sufficient low end torque for comfortable city riding.

Safely expect the new bike to open gates to an all new segment of Indian performance bike market and satisfy the hunger of all those Indian bike aficionados who have been wishing more from entry level 250cc sportsbikes.
