Kawasaki Ninja 300 production was spotted in October 2019, now all the old stock is being moved out
Kawasaki Ninja 400 was supposed to replace the Ninja 300 but the price of the 400cc Ninja was too high to get the deal done. The Japanese giant has already bid farewell to the manufacturing of Kawasaki Ninja 300 at its Pune plant back in October 2019. At present, only the existing stock disposed at the dealers are available for purchase.
The green company’s highest-selling sports bike will see the light of production when the 300cc engine is upgraded to stringent BS6 emission norms. Some suggest that Kawasaki will bring the face of Ninja 400 on new BS6 compliant Ninja 300 for the Indian market same as the Ninja 250 in international markets wears the clothes of Ninja 400. Even if it happens, Kawasaki has to price the new Ninja 300 competitively at around Rs 3.2 lakh ex-showroom.
For the BS4 version, Kawasaki Ninja 300 is powered by a parallel-twin 296cc liquid-cooled engine. This unit develops 38.5bhp and 27Nm twisting force. This much grunt is more than enough to shoot the bike to 100kmph in about 6.5 seconds. Mated to a 6-speed gearbox, the top speed of the bike arrives at 180 kmph.
If Kawasaki decides to go ahead with the similar styling for the BS6 version, it will create a bad aura just like what happened to Honda CBR 250R. On the other hand, Yamaha R3 sales have risen due to unknown reasons. In November 2019, R3 registered 52 units sales which is quite high for a Rs 3.5 lakh sports bike.
