Description

At first glance, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 might be mistaken for a middleweight sportbike, and studying its spec sheet isn’t going to offer many clues to the contrary. The Ninja 300 boasts many performance-enhancing features found on larger Ninja models, such as a digital fuel injection system, an F.C.C. clutch with assist and slipper functions, and the world’s smallest and lightest motorcycle ABS brake system. Not only is the Ninja 300 the best lightweight sportbike available today, it is also more than capable of surprising hard-edged competitors with twice its displacement in tight and technical corners. Compared to most sportbikes, the Ninja 300 ABS also offers a more comfortable seating position and an easy reach to the ground, for ease of use and maximum day-to-day riding enjoyment.

Key Features

  • ABS brakes boost rider confidence
  • Low 30.9-inch seat height and tapered seat boosts confidence for smaller riders
  • 296cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin design offers far superior highway passing power and clearly dominant acceleration compared to other lightweight sportbikes
  • Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®) system uses dual 32mm throttle bodies and provides outstanding throttle response and superb fuel economy
  • F.C.C. clutch with assist and slipper functions provides excellent power handling capabilities with a light feel at the lever. Design also makes clutch easy to modulate and reduces the effect of back-torque to help minimize wheel hop when downshifting
  • Sportbike bodywork features an aggressive and edgy design with strong Ninja family DNA that sets the Ninja 300 apart from its lightweight sportbike competitors
  • High-tensile frame provides optimum flex for superior feel and agility compared to the competition
  • 10-spoke 17-inch sportbike wheels look great and can fit premium sportbike rubber for optimum handling
  • Six-speed transmission features a roller-type shift drum for smooth actuation coupled with strong gears for maximum durability. It also offers wide selection of ratios to match varied riding conditions and its positive neutral finder makes it easy to find neutral when stopped
  • Kawasaki Air Management System (KAMS) uses a special deflector to channel hot air from the back of the radiator, so that it exits the bottom of the motorcycle, instead of being blown onto the rider when the fan is active. This makes hot days and slow traffic much cooler than it would be if riding another brand of lightweight sportbike
