THE LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPION

With 296cc of fuel-injected, adrenaline-rush-inducing performance and effortless handling characteristics, the Ninja® 300 torches the competition across the board – including bikes with significantly larger engines. Don’t let the “lightweight” designation fool you. This is not your average sportbike.

The Kawasaki Nina 300 is considered one of the best motorcycles and there is no wonder why; it is light, strong, and cool. The motorcycle is equipped with a long list of amenities such as FCC assist slipper clutch, air management system, digital injection, and an innovative frame design that offers a perfect balance between rigidity and lightness.

Once on board you are met by a newly designed seat and a premium digital instrument panel that features a modern Eco indicator, an easy-to-read speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, digital clock, and warning lights. Aggressive bodywork features a sharp-edged design and offers effective heat management with superb aerodynamics. The modern sportbike not only looks great, but also features a modern floating windscreen design that helps minimize buffeting for smooth airflow around the rider’s helmet.

Not only is the Ninja 300 the best lightweight sportbike available today, it is also more than capable of surprising hard-edged competitors with twice its displacement in tight and technical corners. Its six-speed sequential transmission features Kawasaki’s positive neutral finder to make finding neutral a cinch when stopped. This efficient engine and transmission help the Ninja 300 provide plenty of enjoyment from the initial learning curve, all the way through advanced sport riding, track days, and club racing.

Key Features

  • Low 30.9-inch seat height and tapered seat boosts confidence for smaller riders
  • 296cc liquid-cooled, parallel-twin design offers far superior highway passing power and clearly dominant acceleration compared to other lightweight sportbikes
  • Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®) system uses dual 32mm throttle bodies and provides outstanding throttle response and superb fuel economy
  • F.C.C. clutch with assist and slipper functions provides excellent power handling capabilities with a light feel at the lever. Design also makes clutch easy to modulate and reduces the effect of back-torque to help minimize wheel hop when downshifting
  • Sportbike bodywork features an aggressive and edgy design with strong Ninja family DNA that sets the Ninja 300 apart from its lightweight sportbike competitors
  • High-tensile frame provides optimum flex for superior feel and agility compared to the competition
  • 10-spoke 17-inch sportbike wheels look great and can fit premium sportbike rubber for optimum handling
  • Six-speed transmission features a roller-type shift drum for smooth actuation coupled with strong gears for maximum durability. It also offers wide selection of ratios to match varied riding conditions and its positive neutral finder makes it easy to find neutral when stopped
  • Kawasaki Air Management System (KAMS) uses a special deflector to channel hot air from the back of the radiator, so that it exits the bottom of the motorcycle, instead of being blown onto the rider when the fan is active. This makes hot days and slow traffic much cooler than it would be if riding another brand of lightweight sportbike

296cc Parallel-Twin Cylinder Engine

Michael Kim (215) and Cesar Garcia (719)
  • Compact parallel-twin design offers good mass centralization for nimble handling
  • Tuned to deliver smooth, step-free power with excellent mid-range and high-rpm power for effective highway performance
  • Low-friction cam chain design promotes maximum power and efficiency
  • Moderate 10.6:1 compression ratio allows the use of regular 87-octane unleaded gasoline and helps reduce operating temperatures
  • High-tech pistons reduce reciprocating weight and feature a hard anodized coating to minimize friction and boost performance at every rpm
  • Sleeveless “open-deck” die-cast aluminum cylinders are minimize weight and feature a friction-reducing “T-treatment” plating
  • Crank journal bearings are made from a strong alloy for maximum durability
  • Large-volume 2.4 liter oil pan features cooling fins and excellent ground clearance
  • Easy-to-access cartridge type spin-on oil filter helps simplify maintenance

Exhaust System

  • Long, curved 2-into-1 header design contributes to the Ninja 300’s low
  • and mid-range torque and smooth, step-free power curve
  • Complex geometry silencer design offers modern styling and meets all regulations without compromising engine performance
  • Large brushed-finish metal silencer guard reduce noise and helps protect passenger from exhaust heat
  • Meets strict Euro 3 emission standards with a single catalyzer in the collector section

Liquid Cooling with KAMS

Ninja 300 Clutch
  • Kawasaki Air Management System (KAMS) uses a special deflector to redirect hot air from the radiator fan, so it exits the bottom of the motorcycle instead of being blown onto the rider
  • Lightweight Denso radiator offers effective engine cooling with minimal space and weight
  • Fan design uses a quiet-running motor that also saves space
  • Fins on the lower side of the crankcase provide additional engine cooling
  • Six-speed Transmission with F.C.C. Assist & Slipper Clutch
  • Premium F.C.C. clutch with assist and slipper functions can handle more power with significantly less lever effort than traditional clutches
  • Clutch design also makes it easy to modulate and helps reduce the effect of back-torque for reduced wheel-hop when downshifting
  • Six-speed transmission features a roller-type shift drum for smooth actuation and strong gears for maximum durability. It also offers wide selection of ratios to match varied riding conditions and its positive neutral finder makes it easy to find neutral when stopped
  • Involute splines minimize friction and backlash between gears and shafts for easy gear-meshing and smooth shifting under power

Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®)

Josh Serne (765) Kevin Winter (688)
  • Dual 32mm Keihin throttle bodies and a digital ECU offer easy starting, crisp throttle response, and help provide low fuel consumption ABS Disc Brakes with Petal-type Rotors
  • Large-diameter, 290mm front petal disc and a balanced action two-piston caliper offer excellent braking performance and a natural, direct feeling at the lever
  • Two-piston caliper grips the rear 220mm petal disc Rigid Sportbike Chassis
  • High-tensile steel frame uses rigid main pipes for optimum chassis response and steering precision
  • Frame design and chassis tuning offer confidence-inspiring stability at both high and low speeds
  • Beefy swingarm bracket contributes to the frame’s rigidity and helps achieve an optimal balance of chassis stiffness
  • Square-beam swingarm complements the frame’s rigidity Suspension
  • 37mm telescopic front fork complements the rigid frame and wide rear tire
  • Uni-Trak® rear suspension linkage helps provide predictable sportbike handling and good ride comfort
