Ninja is more known than the manufacturer brand, Kawasaki. Strange, but a fact! And adding more speed to the Indian motorcycling, Bajaj discovers the new baby in the line up, the Ninja 300R. Obviously, the first elder sibling to the Ninja 250R. When Kawasaki launched, the Ninja 250R, the bike enjoyed its selfish domination for a long period. As now Kawasaki introduces this machine, it will be also enjoying its dictatorship as far as a real rival is unveiled.
In comparison with the Ninja 250R, the Ninja 300R is moulded out in variety of features, specifications and novel stuffs. One thing is very sure that this motorcycle will bring its own era soon. To push off the machine, Kawasaki had to make over a new engine. They succeeded in it by engineering a new 296cc four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, parallel twin engine. The engine is powered by a maximum power of 39 Bhp @ 11000 rpm and a stunning torque of 28 Nm @ 10000 rpm.
Almost all sports bike are blamed for their high fuel consumption. Because, it is really heard belnd both fuel efficiency and performance. But Kawasaki engineers have done a wonderful job in wedding both power and good mileage. For that a new Digital Fuel Injection (DFI) system is entangled with the engine, which worked on dual 32 mm throttle bodies. This ensures not only an improved fuel economy but also less emission too. The bike promises a mileage of 28.9 kmpl under standard conditions.
The chassis of the Ninja 300R is to be very much applauded. Its frame is built on pipes made from high-tensile steel tubes. This gives 150% more rigidity than the normal frames. Along with rigidity, the bike becomes lighter and it provides easy driving. This chassis is also a cause for the stunning exterior portion. Aggressive dual headlamp, well placed turn indicators and sleek tail lamp bring a sportiness to the machine. Additionally, the Ninja 300R special 17 inch alloy wheel spread out a magnificent fell of sportsbike.
