    Default 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 revealed

    Source: 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 revealed - Motorcycle news: New bikes - Visordown

    KAWASAKI'S entry-level Ninja is getting a boost as it becomes a Ninja 300 for 2013.




    The Ninja 300 has a larger-displacement 296cc fuel-injected parallel twin engine with dual throttle valves. In terms of power the 300 will gain 7bhp with an output of 39bhp. As manufacturers are seemingly reinventing a class that was previously owned by 250cc two-strokes, despite being a four-stroke the Ninja 300 is getting close to their power figures as the old RG250 Gamma only did about 45bhp.

    The new bike also features "advanced racing-derived technology" in the form of a slipper clutch and a back-torque limiter. A slipper clutch on a 300? How trick.

    The 300 takes its styling cues from the Ninja family with the windscreen from the ZX-10R, dual headlights like the ZX-6R, and fairing and wheels reminiscent of the ZZR1400. The Ninja 300 will also be avaiable with ABS.

    Key features from Kawasaki:

    Uncontested performance!

    Fuel-injected parallel twin engine with dual throttle valves
    Increased displacement (296 cc) for power and torque exceeding the class
    Superior acceleration and top speed
    Circuit-bred chassis performance

    High level of chassis stability from new frame
    Wider 140 mm rear tyre
    High-quality ride feel

    Excellent chassis stability
    Low vibration
    Excellent heat management.
    Reduced heat

    Changes for improved heat management mean less heat reaches the rider:
    Large openings in fairing
    Radiator fan cover
    Available with latest-spec compact ABS unit

    Specifications on par with units used on our top-of-the-line supersport models
    Advanced racing-derived technology

    F.C.C. Assist & Slipper Clutch offers light clutch actuation, sporty feel
    Race-style back-torque limiting function
    Brilliant styling, directly related to larger Ninja and ZZR models

    Ninja ZX-10R-style floating windscreen
    Dual headlights (like Ninja ZX-6R)
    ZZR1400-style fairing and wheel design
    Sporty aluminium foot-pegs and complex silencer shape (like big Ninja models)
    Modern instrumentation

    Analogue-style tachometer
    Multi-function LCD features include fuel gauge, dual trip meters, clock, Economical Riding Indicator

    yeah... looks pretty juciey

    It would definitely end up coming to Indian shores... the question is at what price?

    The inclusion of Optional ABS is a nice move.
    Twist your wrist and feel the shift!!

    My own thoughts - Throttle

    Doesn't belong to the Quarter Litre class any-more due to the 50cc bump? Interesting...
    Expected Kawasaki to come-up with Perimeter frame..! Put-off again with the conventional Diamond type one..

    Nope.. The 250 Ninja line-up has become 300 this year by an additional displacement of 50cc to the parallel twin motor. So, no more 250's from their stable any-more.

    Are you sure?

    News is this only for the European market.

    Its launched in indonesia as the Ninja 250.

    What will India get? Cant say.

    What will USA get? TimesSquare Take Over is round the corner, we'll all know.
