KEY FEATURES

Fuel injection

Fuel injection

Fine-atomising injectors with a droplet size of only 60 µm contribute to combustion efficiency. New injector bodies are more compact.

Rigid diamond frame

Rigid diamond frame

New diamond frame features redesigned main tubes, new high-tensile steel components, additional gusseting and rubber front engine mounts. Reduced vibration contributes to the Ninja 300's high-quality ride feel as well as increased rider comfort. Rigidity balance fine-tuned on the circuit ensures the high level of chassis stability necessary for sport riding.

Aggressive styling

Aggressive styling

Like the other Ninjas in the series, the new Ninja 300 features a “mass-forward, minimalist-tail” design concept. Aggressive new dual headlamps, windscreen, wheels and numerous other styling elements inspired by Ninja flagship models give it a serious supersport look.

Aluminium footpegs

Aluminium footpegs

Lightweight supersport-style aluminium footpegs give a more direct feel and good controllability when sport riding.

2-1 exhaust with short-style silencer

2-1 exhaust with short-style silencer

Longer, larger-diameter header and centre pipes contribute to stronger performance at all rpm. New short-style silencer with complex cross-section enables the requisite volume while ensuring an ample lean angle. Large silencer guard protects passengers from heat and also contributes to noise reduction.

Telescopic fork

Telescopic fork

To match the increased engine performance and more rigid frame, a new 37 mm fork with revised settings is fitted. Increased ride comfort in the city, and smooth, stable handling when sport riding is the result.

Sleeveless aluminium die-cast cylinder

Sleeveless aluminium die-cast cylinder

Sleeveless, aluminium die-cast cylinder features plated bores, just like on our Ninja ZX-10R and ZX-6R supersport machines. The new cylinder features an open-deck design, offering excellent heat dissipation, and weighs 600g less than the previous sleeved cylinder.

Radiator Fan Cover

Radiator Fan Cover

The new fan cover located behind the radiator directs hot air down and away from the rider, significantly increasing comfort when stuck in heavy traffic. Redirecting the air also helps keep the tank, frame and other parts that contact the rider cooler, further increasing rider comfort.

New pistons

New pistons

Lightweight new pistons with flatter crowns reduce reciprocating weight. The pistons feature a hard alumite coating for high durability.

296 cm3 Liquid-cooled 4-stroke Parallel Twin

296 cm3 Liquid-cooled 4-stroke Parallel Twin

The Parallel Twin engine produces smooth, torquey power at low and medium rpm and powerful acceleration at high rpm. Thanks to a longer stroke, the Ninja 300's new engine now displaces 296 cm3. Correspondingly the engine delivers noticeably stronger torque and power at all rpm. New pistons, cylinder, cylinder head and exhaust contribute to the improved performance.

Wider rear tyre

Wider rear tyre

Wider 140mm rear tyre matches the increased engine performance, contributes to an enhanced supersport image and contributes to the Ninja 300’s increased straight-line stability. New tyre compound offers good grip in both dry and wet conditions.

Latest-spec ABS

Latest-spec ABS

For additional rider reassurance, an ABS model is also available. Its high-spec system designed by Nissin specially for motorcycles, delivers precise control and is extremely compact. A size of only 40% of previous Nissin ABS system makes it the world's smallest ABS unit.

Uni track rear suspension

Uni track rear suspension

Kawasaki’s original linkage-equipped Uni-Trak rear suspension delivers a smooth ride and stable handling over a wide range of speeds and road conditions.

Petal disc brakes

Petal disc brakes

Large-diameter 290mm front petal disc brake operated by a 2-pistons caliper delivers powerful braking and a natural feel at the lever. 220mm rear petal disc and 2-pistons caliper give dependable stopping power. Petal discs like those on the larger-displacement Ninja supersport models offer excellent heat dissipation.

Modern Instrumentation

Modern Instrumentation

Sporty new instrument panel design contributes to the advanced-technology and high-quality image of the Ninja series. Multi-function LCD screen functions include: speedometer, clock, fuel gauge, dual trip meters, odometer and ECO Economical Riding indicator. White LED backlighting ensures clear meter visibility at night.
