Kawasaki Ninja 300 Review

20 Jul, 2018 04:28 PM

Overview

Kawasaki Ninja 300 is priced at INR 2.98 lakh and looks more like a thing of future. The front sharp twin headlights of this bike broaden its face which helps this bike to get a fascinating look. Its long V-shaped pointed visor mounted with black colored rear view mirrors makes it look aggressive and sporty. It has an edgy front fender which is short in size but adds flavor to its front designing. The new design of alloy wheels don’t look much premium though but gels well with the overall appearance of this bike.

The bike looks best when seen from sideways; its integrated engine cowl and side fairing adds motion to this bike. The air-inlets have been smartly designed and match the color theme on this bike. Its elegantly designed fuel tank looks premium with its name written on it. Kawasaki has placed split seats on the top of its integrated side panel and rear cowl. This tall positioned rear cowl and naked chain of Ninja 300 looks flashy at the back. Its LED tail light has also been placed in its rear cowl while the side indicators get fitted in its extended rear fender.

Kawasaki has also added bulk to its rear tire and silver finished silencer. A very stylish dashboard has been equipped with the new Ninja 300. It sports an analog tachometer which is placed right in the center while other essential indicators are placed around it. There is a small LCD just below this tachometer which displays digital speedometer, odometer, fuel- gauge and 2-trip meter. The LCD also has a digital clock and uses white color for illumination at night.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 uses a liquid-cooled, 4-stroke parallel twin 296cc engine. This 8 valves engine churns out a maximum power output of 39 bhp at 11000 rpm. The maximum torque production of this DOHC engine is of 27 Nm which arrives at 10000 rpm. This bike is equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox which has one gear down and five gears up-shift pattern.

Similar to its smaller sibling 250R, this bike is also meant for high-speed cruising. The bike feels significantly faster and aggressive than its smaller variant. The bike comes with an acclaimed top speed of 182 km/hr which makes it 20km/hr faster than its younger sibling. Ninja 300 has tall gear ratios which keep on increasing as you speed up. The bike completes 0-100km/hr in less than 8 seconds and that makes it faster than many sports bikes. This DOHC engine shows the high level of refinement and stays away from any type of noise and harshness.

The dual throttle valve technology helps Ninja 300 to offer instant throttle reaction. It never suffocates for power and that can be noticed when you take this bike on highways. Overtaking with this bike is quite easy thanks to its strong high range and additional sixth gear. The power to weight ratio of Ninja 300 is also quite respectable. The anti-slip clutch also helps while accelerating this bike. The bike feels best when driven between 120km/hr-160km/hr.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 may give a mileage of around 15-20 kmpl in city conditions while on highways you can expect anything around 20-25 kmpl. The riding position and seating comfort on Ninja 300 is similar to its younger sibling. Kawasaki could have increased fabrication on its seat as it feels a bit hard and that’s quite uncomfortable on long trips.

Your elbows and palm stay stress-free and get a firm grip on this bike. The space on its fuel tank gives way to your knees to stick around it properly. Similar to other Ninja bikes, there is no storage space in this bike. Its safety features include bright twin headlights which give you a bright vision of roads at night. The bike also has a vital safety feature of radiator fan which saves the rider from the heat of the engine as it directs heat towards the air outlet.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 is equipped with an advanced suspension and braking system. It features beefy telescopic forks of 37mm at its front while bottom link uni track with 5-way adjustable gas charged shock absorber can be seen at the back. Ninja 300 has disc brakes and 2-piston calipers on its both wheels. Its front petal disc brake is of 290mm while it has a single disc brake of 220mm at the back. This new gen Ninja is also incorporated with an advanced ABS system.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 is based on a new frame with an extended wheelbase and high ground clearance for better stability and turning abilities. It has a wheelbase of 1405mm which keeps it grounded along with its suspension system when you drive this bike fast on highways. The ground clearance of 140mm improves it aerodynamics while taking a turn at slow speeds. The new braking system fills the rider with confidence in city traffic and on highways. It always stays under control and feels quite comfortable.

The bike handles quite easily in city traffic as you never find this bike bulky. It is quite responsive on highways also as it never loses contact with the road and steers accurately. Kawasaki Ninja 300 features 17 inches alloy wheels. It is available in only one variant and is available in two shades: White and Ninja Green.

Looking at the pricing of Kawasaki Ninja 300, it sure looks amazing and offers impressive performance. Feature-wise, you can also say it’s a good package. A reasonable price helps this bike to become popular in India as currently, there is no competition in this segment.
