So, for the start, first, let’s talk about its looks and design.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 takes its design cues from Kawasaki’s supersport machine Ninja ZX-10R. While most of the design elements are from ZX-10R, it borrows some features from other Ninja family bikes as well. The large ventilation holes depict a design similar to ZX14R. It uses a forward lean riding stance which enhances the aerodynamic ability. The telescopic front suspension serves its purpose quite well while the rear gas-charged shock absorber is 5-way pre-adjustable. It embodies an analog-digital meter which gives a feel of a track racing bike.
Like ZX-10R, the windscreen is now floating type with a gap between the cowl and windscreen. The turn indicators are integrated into the body which gives it a leaning look.
This street racer uses a circuit-developed diamond frame which offers high strength and durability for better performance. Kawasaki claims that the ABS unit is specially designed for motorcycles. It is the world’s smallest ABS unit. The fan cover is located behind the radiator which directs hot air down and away from the rider. This innovative design increases riding comfort when stuck in heavy traffic.
