Kawasaki has launched the heavily localised Ninja 300 at Rs 3.43 lakh (ex-showroom) in India. Launched as a completely built unit (CBU) in 2013 at Rs 3.50 lakh (ex-showroom), the Kawasaki Ninja 300 has been on sale in India for nearly 11 years. Over the years, Kawasaki has updated the motorcycle with a pillion grab rail, an anti-lock braking system (ABS), and new colours. Speaking of which, Kawasaki has introduced two new colour options with reworked graphics for the model year 2024 – Candy Lime Green and Metallic Moondust Grey. The other colour option, Lime Green, is also available, taking the count to three.

While the Kawasaki Ninja 300 is manufactured in India, its rivals – the Yamaha R3 and the  Aprilia RS 457 – are sold as completely built units in India, costing Rs 4.65 lakh and Rs 4.10 lakh, respectively. The prices are ex-showroom.

Kawasaki Ninja 300: Hardware

Hardware-wise, the Ninja 300 uses a tubular diamond-type frame with telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Stopping power comes from a 290mm petal disc at the front and a 220mm petal disc at the rear with dual-channel ABS as standard. 

The motorcycle rides on a pair of 17-inch split-spoke alloy wheels fitted with tubeless tyres. It also has a heat management system for improved performance, and the Japanese manufacturer claims that the bike's exhaust has been optimised to deliver good performance and minimal noise.
