Kawasaki India has discontinued the production and sales of the Ninja 300 in the market. According to Bikewale, production of the motorcycle was reportedly stopped in October this year, with the last remaining stocks left at dealerships being sold off.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 was the entry-level product offerings from the brand in the Indian market. It came with a price tag of Rs 2.98 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). Kawasaki introduced a larger sibling in the form of the Ninja 400 in the Indian market. However, this replacement comes with a premium of Rs 2 lakh over the 300cc model.
Kawasaki currently is yet to make any official statement regarding the introduction of a BS6 variant of the Ninja 300 in India. The Kawasaki Ninja 300 was the brand's highest-selling motorcycle in the country, hence the discontinuation of the model could be a big blow in terms of the company's monthly sales.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 was powered by 296cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder engine. It produces 39bhp and 28Nm of peak torque, paired with a six-speed gearbox. The motorcycle offered a host of features as well, including assist and slipper clutch, adjustable mono-shock for the rear suspension, disc brakes at either end with dual-channel ABS as standard and a modern digital instrument cluster; among others.
In comparison, the Kawasaki Ninja 400 comes with a 399cc liquid-cooled twin-cylinder unit. It produces 47.5bhp and 38Nm of peak torque, mated to a six-speed gearbox. The Ninja 400 also comes with a larger set of suspension and brakes, along with a number of additional features, justifying the premium pricing.
The Kawasaki Ninja 400 also comes with a more modern design, inspired by its larger ZX-10R sibling. The motorcycle is also offered in two paint schemes, with fresh body graphics. The two colour schemes include Ebony Black and Lime Green.
The company recently introduced India's first-ever premium super-naked BS6-compliant motorcycle, the Z900. The new Kawasaki Z900 BS6 is offered with a price tag of Rs 8.50 lakh and comes with a host of new and additional features — here are the details.
Thoughts On The Kawasaki Ninja 300 Discontinuation
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 has been the best-selling model for the brand in the Indian market. The Ninja 300 was locally assembled in India, allowing it to be priced competitively in the market. The Kawasaki Ninja 300 rivalled the likes of the TVS Apache RR310, KTM RC 390 and the Yamaha R3.
