Japanese motorcycle brand, Kawasaki has launched the 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 300 in the BS6 avatar in the Indian market at the price of INR 3.18 lakh ex-showroom. The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 300 comes with a BS6 compliant twin-cylinder engine and three new colours with new body graphics. Apart from the new graphics, colours and engine updates to conform to the latest stringent emission norms the Ninja 300 remains the same as the predecessor, both in terms of design and equipment.
Powering the 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 300 is a BS6 emission-compliant water-cooled 296cc, four-stroke Parallel Twin Cylinder 8-valve DOHC motor with electronic fuel injection and dual throttle valves that helps churn out 39 PS of power and 26.1 Nm of torque. The engine comes with a wet sump forced lubrication system and an oil cooler for better thermodynamic efficiency and a return type 6-speed transmission unit. The electronic fuel injection system comes with 60 μm fine-atomising injectors that ensure smooth and responsive torque at low and medium rpm as well as explosive delivery at high rpm range. The development of the clutch is the result of the feedback from racing activities and the Assist and Slipper system limits the back-torque during aggressive downshifts preventing the rear tyre from hopping and skidding.
Colours for 2021
The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 300 comes in three colour options – Lime Green, the classic Ninja green colour with black and white body graphics and red accents. A Candy Lime Green comes with a glossy black body graphic with ‘Ninja’ in green on the side panels. Ebony, a gloss black shade with green accents in key places to make the motorcycle look sharper and the ‘Ninja’ moniker graphic in green on the side panel as well as on the tank.
The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 300 features a circuit-developed Diamond Frame Chassis, featuring high-tensile steel components, an innovative radiator fan cover that directs hot air down and away from the rider, a sporty semi-digital instrument cluster design, 37 mm telescopic fork with a revised setting that offers a firmer ride on the highway and is more balanced on the street and a 2-into-1 exhaust system.
