Kawasaki has finally introduced the BS6-compliant Ninja 300 although with the same performance. The 296cc, parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine still produces a healthy 38 bhp@11000 rpm and 2.66 kgm of torque@10000 rpm, paired to a 6-speed gearbox and gets a slipper clutch as standard.

There are no design changes on it, the Ninja 300 still has the same tubular steel frame with a conventional telescopic fork and a pre-load adjustable monoshock. Up front, it gets 110/70 R17 section tyre and at the rear, it gets 140/70 R17 section. Braking duties are carried out by a 290 mm single disc up front and a 220 mm disc at the rear, along with a dual-channel ABS setup. Other features include a semi-digital instrument cluster, bulb-type headlamps and blinkers, and an LED taillight.

Talking about cosmetic changes, the updates are only limited to its colour schemes. It now features three colours: Lime Green, Candy Lime Green and Ebony. After almost two years, the Ninja 300 gets an update but is now Rs 20,000 dearer than before, priced at Rs 3.18 lakh, ex-showroom.
