The Kawasaki Ninja 300 has been introduced in two new colour options - Metallic Moon Dust Grey and Lime Green. The two new colours are in addition to the existing blue and green colour options already available on the bike. With the two new colours, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 is now available in a choice of four colour options. Prices for the Kawasaki Ninja 300 continue to remain the same at ₹ 2.98 lakh (ex-showroom). While the new Lime Green shade is similar to the existing green colour, it features new decals on the fairing.
The 2019 Kawasaki Ninja 300 continues to be powered by the same 296 cc, four-stroke, 8-valve, DOHC, parallel-twin engine which puts out 38 bhp of maximum power at 11,000 rpm and 27 Nm of peak toque kicking in at 10,000 rpm. The Ninja 300 has a six-speed gearbox and also comes with an assist and slipper clutch, useful for aggressive downshifting, as well as provides a light feel on the clutch lever. The Ninja 300 gets 37 mm telescopic front forks, a five-way adjustable monoshock at the rear and braking duties are handled by a 290 mm disc at the front, and a 220 mm disc at the rear. ABS is standard.
The Ninja 300 has been a steady seller for India Kawasaki Motors, ever since the 300 cc sportbike was highly localised to keep the price competitive. At under ₹ 3 lakh, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 takes on the likes of the KTM RC 390, TVS Apache RR 310, Benelli 302R, Yamaha YZF-R3 and even the BMW G 310 R.
