2019 Kawasaki Ninja 300 gets two new colors – Metallic Moondust Grey and Lime Green
Kawasaki Motors India has launched 2019 Kawasaki Ninja 300 with two new color options. The new paint schemes are – Metallic Moon Dust Grey and another one is Lime Green. However, the price of the bikes remains unchanged at Rs 2.98 lakh ex-showroom.
Previously Ninja 300 was assembled from imported CKD kits and was carrying a price tag of Rs 3.6 lakh ex-showroom. That bike was not equipped with ABS. Now the made in India Ninja 300 gets a price of Rs 62,000 with Dual-Channel ABS. The Indian made components are mostly body panels, headlights, and consumables like cables and levers. Ninja 300’s engine and chassis are still imported from Kawasaki’s Thailand plant.

Kawasaki has sold more than 1000 units since the massive price drop in July 2018 (deliveries started in August 2018). With this, Ninja 300 has become Kawasaki’s best selling model in India. The company is celebrating this achievement with the introduction of two new color shades in addition to the existing Plasma Blue and Green with Black. In my opinion, Metallic Moon Dust Grey is the best color Ninja 300 got till now.
Powering Kawasaki Ninja 300 ABS is a liquid-cooled, parallel-twin, 296cc, DOHC engine. This powerplant pumps out 38.5bhp at 11,000rpm and 27Nm twisting force at 10,000rpm. Engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission. Ninja 300 ABS does a 0 to 100 kmph in 6.5 seconds with a top speed of around 170 kmph.
Braking force comes from 290 mm front petal disc and 220 mm rear disc brake. The suspension duties are performed by 37 mm telescopic forks up front and 5-way adjustable gas-charged monoshock at the rear. The company also claims that the dual-channel ABS system offered on the Ninja 300 is the smallest ABS unit in the entire two-wheeler industry.
Kawasaki should have taken the pain to introduce LED lighting in the new Ninja 300 as every other bike in the same engine capacity is offering the same.
