Kawasaki Ninja 300: First Ride Review

“Tonight we Dine in HELL!!”

You do remember the above line and its significance from the movie ‘300’ starring Gerald Butler, don’t you?

After two decades of ruling the quarter litre segment worldwide, Kawasaki lays its stake to continue to rule the world with the launch of Ninja 300. The Japanese manufacturer, instead of just upgrading the Ninja 250R with minor tweaks here and there which majority of manufacturers do with their winning models, created a whole new different machine.

Ninja 300 is a beautiful combination of superb power, impressive performance, agile handling, improved efficiency and crisp styling. Om Vaikul got his hands on the green goblin and comes back after test riding the all new Kawasaki Ninja 300 and has just one thing to say — “Tonight, we Ride to Hell!”

Power, Performance and Delivery

Kawasaki Ninja 300 – “Evolution at its Best”

The new Kawasaki Ninja 300 runs on a four-stroke, 296cc parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine. The fuel injected motor generates a maximum power of 39bhp @ 11000rpm, with a peak torque of 2.8kgm produced @ 10000rpm. What the hell does this mean? It means you have a state-of-the-art missile at your disposal and the control of this better be in experienced hands.

You may wonder if a 47cc increase in power mill and a raise of 6bhp would make much of a difference, compared to the 250R, but the moment you experience the Ninja 300, you’ll realise it’s a unique motorcycle by itself. Despite sharing some configuration and a few parts from its predecessor, there is a different personality to the 300. You’ll land up saying, “Wow…this is a whole new motor…”
