And we have the confirmation date about the launch of much anticipated sport-machine of Kawasaki, the Ninja 300R, that the bike will mark its entry in Indian shore on 10th April. Rumours had been flooding about the arrival of the Ninja 300R since the unveil of machine in September 2012.
Anyway this is a great news as far as the well nourished Indian motorcycle industry and the bi-wheeler maniacs in the country are concerned. Unfortunately, Kawasaki will be replacing the Ninja 250R with the Ninja 300R. That is the Ninja 250R will no more be in the market once the Ninja 300R gets placed. Remember, the Ninja 250R is the best selling motorcycle of the Japanese motorcycle manufacturer.
However, Kawasaki hasn't unveiled the official price of the machine until now. Still, the two-wheeler is expected to be priced around Rs. 3.75 lakh (on road). Even though it is a whooping price tag, the Ninja brand itself is more than enough for its rivals, Hyosung GT250R and Honda CBR 150R. Apart all, the bike is high above any machines in this class.
Bajaj Auto, the authorised dealer of Kawasaki Motorcycles in India, should have launched the Ninja 300R earlier. Because, KTM 390 Duke is heading down to the Indian industry any time closer and the motor-maniacs are eagerly waiting for the bike. Even if the Duke 390 is a naked bike, the machine has all other qualities to compete with the Ninja 300R.
2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300R comes with a 296cc, Four-stroke, liquid-cooled, DOHC, parallel twin engine. The bi-wheeler is powered by maximum power of 39 PS @ 11000 rpm and maximum torque of 27.0 Nm @ 10000 rpm. It has only electric start and mated with a 6 speed gear transmission.
The design of the bike is inspired from its elder sibling, the Ninja ZX-10R. The Ninja 300R is also comprised of ABS technology. But, it is optional. Customers will have to shed more money to bear that.
The bike is wedded with a single 290 mm petal single balanced actuation dual-piston disc brake at front and a single 220 mm petal disc Caliper: Dual-piston at rear. Mounted with a better 37 mm telescopic front fork suspension, and a bottom-Link Uni-Trak with gas-charged shock and 5-way adjustable preload rear suspension, Kawasaki ensures maximum comfy to riders.
The official price of the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300R is still uncertain.
