Kawasaki Unveils 2017 Ninja 300 — Gets A Swanky "Winter Test Edition"

Written By:

Kawasaki has unveiled the 2017 Ninja 300. The fans of the motorcycle have to be disappointed since the motorcycle receives no mechanical updates.

Kawasaki first introduced the Ninja 300 in 2012. Since then, the motorcycle soon gathered attention globally, but all that the company has updated after launching the bike four years ago is the cosmetics.

The company has also added a KRT edition to the line-up, featuring new graphics, and ABS. The standard variants receive no updates and are available in the same colour options.

A new Winter Test Edition Ninja 300 has also been introduced, which features a wider rear tyre (150 mm) against the 140 mm offered on the standard model.

Featuring Kawasaki WSBK team's "winter testing" racing livery, the Ninja 300 Winter Test Edition will get a matte black paint, a raised windshield, and a rear seat cowl.

Similar to the previous generation, powering the 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 300 will be the same 296cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin engine that produces 38.5bhp of power and 27 Nm of peak torque. The 6-speed gearbox on the motorcycle will feature slipper clutch.

Kawasaki offers the motorcycle with ABS as an option in a few markets while India still doesn't get it.

In spite of being assembled in India, the Ninja 300 is priced on the higher side, making it hard to compete against the cheaper and powerful KTM 390's.
