Kawasaki Ninja 300 Review

18 Jun, 2024 11:01 AM

Detailed Review by Maxabout Team


Kawasaki is a well-known brand name among people, particularly among the elder generation who grew up on Kawasaki-Bajaj motorcycles. From that time until the present, the Japanese two-wheeler company has become significantly larger and more premium in India. The brand focused on localised production of its bikes and launched Ninja 300 in 2018 which was a heavily localised bike. Since then the bike has gone through various updates and ruling the hearts of Indian young bikers. To know more about its features and specifications, let’s discuss them in detail.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 Design and Style

Talking about the appearance, the company has launched the New Kawasaki Ninja 300 in three different shades. Halogen headlamps, an LED taillight, a semi-digital instrument console and designer black-out wheels make its look all the more spectacular. At the same time, it has a fuel tank of 17 litres and weighs about 179 kg. This will make it much easier to travel long distances.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 Engine and Gearbox

At the heart, the New Kawasaki Ninja 300 gets a 296cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke parallel-twin engine that uses fuel-injection technology and is capable of churning out 39 HP at 11,000 rpm and 26.1 Nm at 10,000 rpm when coupled to a 6-speed, return gearbox.

Instrument Console of Kawasaki Ninja 300

2024 Kawasaki Ninja 300 features a semi-digital instrument cluster that comprises a digital speedometer, trip meter, odometer, an analogue tachometer, a clock, an ABS light, fuel gauge and low battery low oil indicators.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 Brakes, Suspension and Tyres

If we talk about the front look of the bike, then it has 37 mm telescopic forks, while it has a mono-shock suspension feature in its rear. Just like Kawaski's earlier BS-4 model, it also has an independence-sourced brake. Keeping in mind the speed as well as safety, it has a dual-channel ABS feature. It has 17-inch wheels which further strengthens its grip on the road.

Key Features of Kawasaki Ninja 300

Speaking of the key features, the Ninja 300 comes equipped with a Sporty Instrument Panel, Assist & Slipper Clutch, Dual Throttle Valves, Circuit-Developed Diamond Frame, Heat Management Technology, Elegant Design, 2-1 Exhaust with Short-Style Silencer, Wider Rear Tyre, Supersports Style Aluminium Footpegs and Petal Disc Brakes to mention a few.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 Top Speed and Mileage

2024 Kawasaki Ninja 300 touches the range of speed from 0-100 kmph in just 5.6 seconds. This bike promises to reach its top speed of up to 182 kmph and the company is claiming a mileage of 25-30 kmpl.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 Colour Options

Talking about the colour options, the company has launched the New Kawasaki Ninja 300 in three colours. These include Lime Green, Candy Lime Green, and Metallic Moondust Gray.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 Price Range

2024 Kawasaki Ninja 300 on road price is Rs 3.95 lakh in Delhi, Rs 4.08 lakh in Mumbai, Rs 4 lakh in Kolkata and Rs 4.05 lakh in Chennai. The prices mentioned here are approximate and we suggest you contact your nearest Kawasaki dealership to get the exact on-road price quote in your city.

Ex-showroom Price & On-Road Price

Ex-Showroom Price is the Manufacturing Cost of the vehicle + Dealer/Seller Profit + GST (Goods and Service Tax) + Transportation Charges (from the manufacturing plant to the dealership). On the other hand, the On-Road Price is the actual cost you pay to the dealership to make the vehicle legal to run on the roads. It includes Ex-Showroom Price in your city + RTO Charges (Vehicle Registration) + One Time Road Tax + Insurance Charges. The On-Road Price also includes some optional things like if you opt for Genuine Accessories and an Extended Warranty while buying a vehicle. Please observe that the On-Road Price varies a lot across diverse states in India due to different percentages for the State Registration Charges.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 Competitors

2024 Kawasaki Ninja 300 is in competition with Yamaha YZF-R3, Benelli 302R, TVS Apache RR 310, KTM RC 390, Suzuki GSX-S300, Honda CB300R, Honda CBR250RR.

Verdict- Should You Buy the Kawasaki Ninja 300?

One of the best-selling bikes in India in Kawasaki’s current lineup, the Ninja 300 is developed with sophisticated design and features. With this price bracket, it is far from the most affordable bike on the market. But, if you're looking for a motorbike that doesn't sacrifice pure riding enjoyment and performance, nothing beats this one. Enthusiastic riders who want to buy a sportbike with good features and style can go for this bike.

Most Popular Answers for Kawasaki Ninja 300
Which is Better option Royal Enfield Classic 500 or Kawasaki Ninja 300 for daily commute?
08 September 2023 08:25

Choosing between the Royal Enfield Classic 500 and the Kawasaki Ninja 300 for your daily commute depends on what you need. The Classic 500 is comfy with a retro style and low maintenance, great for city riding, but it may feel underpowered on highways. The Ninja 300 is more powerful, agile, and suitable for highways and quick moves in traffic, but its sporty position may be less comfy for longer commutes.

Plenty of features to make a comfortable and enjoyable ride

Sucheta Kundu | One year ago

The Ninja is a great bike for those of us with bigger frames, but it's not just about that. The comfortable seat, the well-designed tank, the slightly raised bars, and the sculpted seat all combine to create a riding experience that is comfortable and enjoyable. The adjustable front levers give you the ability to customize the bike to your own preferences, and even with my 6 foot 4 frame I had no problems with the legroom.

The Ninja is also incredibly responsive, with the rear brake lever feeling natural and well thought out. The clutch and brake levers were also very easy to operate and the position of them was comfortable.

The Z125 is a great option for those who are taller than 6 foot 1. It's perfect for city riding and the low seat height gives plenty of leg room. It's also comfortable to ride and it's very responsive.

Overall, the Kawasaki Ninja125 is a great bike, with plenty of features to make them comfortable and enjoyable to ride. Whether you're tall or short, the Ninja 125 has something to offer.

The power delivery was smooth and progressive

Barun Kumar | One year ago

The Kawasaki Ninja 125 has an impressive power delivery, especially from a standstill. The light clutch lever makes it much easier to manage, and the gears shift into place easily. Despite changing gears often, I never felt fatigued, and I was even able to get a few clutchless upshifts. At higher speeds and revs, there was a noticeable buzz in the mirrors, but it wasn't uncomfortable or overly intrusive. All in all, the power delivery was smooth and progressive, allowing for a comfortable ride even after a long day.

Sana Ifran Khan | One year ago

The ARAI certified mileage of the Kawasaki Ninja 125 is 48 kmpl. This is an impressive figure considering the power and performance of the bike. It is also an admirable figure for a bike with such a small capacity engine. The user reported mileage of the Ninja 125 is not available, however, the reviews from Ninja 125 owners suggest that it is quite fuel-efficient. The Ninja 125 is a great option for those who are looking for a powerful bike that is also fuel-efficient. The Kawasaki Ninja 125 comes with a front brake type of disc and a front brake size of 290 mm. It also has a rear brake type of disc, with a rear brake size of 220 mm. The calliper type is a radial caliper and a floating caliper, giving the bike superior braking power. The front tyre size is 100/80 x 17, and the rear tyre size is 130/70 x 17, both of which are tubeless. The bike also has radial tyres, giving it better grip and control. The wheels are alloy, with a front wheel size of 17 inch, and a rear wheel size of 17 inch.

The Kawasaki Ninja 125 comes with an 11-litre fuel tank capacity, which is enough to get you to your destination and back with some to spare. The fuel efficiency range is also quite good, with an ARAI-measured mileage of 48 kmpl and an even better top speed of 120 km/h. The acceleration is also quite good, with 0-60 kmph in just 6 seconds and 0-100 kmph in 10 seconds.

Kanishk Goyal | One year ago

The Kawasaki Ninja 125 is a bike that can switch between two identities with ease. On one hand, it can be used as a reliable everyday commuter, offering dependable and consistent performance. On the other hand, when ridden aggressively, the Ninja can truly come alive and transform into a beast. Unfortunately, I am not yet skilled enough to take full advantage of the Ninja's full potential, but I can definitely attest to its reliability as a commuter. The Ninja 125 is not meant to be someone's first bike, as it is better suited to those with more experience and a bigger budget. But for those who are willing to take the plunge, the Ninja 125 can be a thrilling and rewarding experience.

The fact about ABS being available on Kawasaki 300 is not true. This feature is sadly not given any serious thought by Kawasaki. Else, the bike is truly amazing. So nimble to drive, easy to control and pulsates you with excitement. Kawasaki, yah, that's world class tech for us. I feasted my sight on 800 too.
