2015 Kawasaki Ninja 300
Zero's latest electric dual sport motorcycle makes its case for space in the garage.
Honda redesigns its Gold Wing from the ground up for 2018
The Ninja 300 motorcycle is a versatile bike that features the same thrilling power and character of the Ninja supersports that inspire it. With big-bike styling, a class-leading, shootout dominating engine that’s also a remarkably fuel-efficient package, this bike is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a fun ride.
The 296cc, liquid-cooled DOHC, 8-valve parallel twin is designed to outperform the competition, while still offering characteristics that helps make an engine feel friendly for the novice rider. Contributing to the confidence-inspiring feel of the Ninja 300 engine is a cylinder head design that takes full advantage of the main- and sub-throttle valves to deliver plenty of low- and mid-range power, as well as rubber engine mounting to reduce vibration.
- Supersport Influence
The Ninja 300 is an “entry-level” bike that features major influence from its bigger Ninja supersport brothers. Dual headlamps, a stylish seat cowl, sleek, aerodynamic body panels, and a wide rear tire all come together to make the Ninja 300 a motorcycle embraced by new and experienced riders alike.
- Wheels And Tires
A quick glance at the wheels on the Ninja 300 and they’ll seem familiar. That’s because they were styled to be similar to the 10-spoke design found on the Ninja® ZX™-14R.
- Assist And Slipper Clutch
For a novice, a sudden downshift at higher rpm can be challenging. But the Ninja 300 is equipped with an assist and slipper clutch that can help smooth out shifting. The assist uses rotational forces of the clutch hub and pressure plate to force the clutch together during acceleration so that fewer and lighter clutch springs can be used for a lighter feel at the lever. During sudden deceleration, the slipper function allows some clutch slippage to help prevent engine lock-up, stalling and rear-wheel hop so you can ride more confidently.
