India Kawasaki re-launches the Ninja 300 in the Indian market with all the bells and whistles it omitted previously. The all new Ninja 300 comes with dual-channel (front and rear) Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) along with new colours and graphics. As a part of India Kawasaki’s expansion plan the all-new Ninja 300 also gets locally produced parts further reducing the cost of ownership.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Yutaka Yamashita, Managing Director of India Kawasaki Motors, said “As per Kawasaki’s product portfolio Ninja 300 is entry level sports bike. We have observed that customers start with Ninja 300 and then upgrade to the next class. Therefore, Ninja 300 happens to be our bestselling product in India because of affordable price.”
The Ninja 300 comes equipped with the proven liquid-cooled strong parallel-twin cylinder, DOHC and 8 valves engine like other models of Ninja series. The new high-tensile steel frame adds to the chassis stability and the assist & slipper clutch, based on racing technology, acts as both a back-torque limiter and self-servo mechanism that enables a lighter clutch action.
The dual headlights are inspired by the Ninja ZX-10R and wheel design is similar to the Ninja ZX-14R which gives the Ninja 300 an aggressive stance, further indicates that the styling package is directly related its bigger siblings.
Further states Mr. Yutaka Yamashita, “We just started localizing for Ninja 300 ABS as a part of our expansion plan. Initiatives like “Make In India” have also been encouraging factors in increasing localization. The localization gives us a benefit to set a very competitive price, because of which we can offer many new customers an opportunity to enjoy our product and also start experiencing fun of supersports riding.”
