At first glance, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 might be mistaken for a middleweight sportbike, and studying its spec sheet isnt going to offer many clues to the contrary. The Ninja 300 boasts many performance-enhancing features found on larger Ninja models, such as a digital fuel injection system, an F.C.C. clutch with assist and slipper functions, and an incredibly light and compact motorcycle ABS brake system. 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. Compared to most sportbikes, the Ninja 300 ABS also offers a more comfortable seating position and an easy reach to the ground, for ease of use and maximum day-to-day riding enjoyment.
Ninja 300s hearty 296cc liquid-cooled, parallel twin is tuned to deliver strong low-end and mid-range torque for around-town rideability as well as excellent high-rpm power for spirited riding, yet this over-achieving performance is silky smooth, thanks to its digital fuel injection (DFI) system, which helps ensure easy cold starting, excellent throttle response and great fuel efficiency.
In addition to its long-stroke 296cc displacement, other Ninja 300 engine features include: a low-friction cam chain for maximum power and efficiency, a moderate 10.6:1 compression ratio that allows the use of regular gasoline, and lightweight pistons that feature a hard anodized coating for low-friction and maximum performance at all rpm.
Those high-tech pistons are effectively cooled by a crankcase design that directs a spray of cooling oil across their bottom surfaces. Lightweight piston pins help reduce reciprocating weight without sacrificing an impressively high redline, and the sleeveless open-deck die-cast aluminum cylinders feature a friction-reducing T-treatment plating for maximum durability. A large-volume, 2.4-liter oil pan with cooling fins helps keep operating temperatures in check, but is shaped to allow maximum ground clearance. An easy-to-access cartridge type spin-on oil filter helps simplify maintenance.
Its six-speed sequential transmission features Kawasakis 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.
A premium quality F.C.C. clutch with assist and slipper functions helps reduce lever effort by up to 25%, and helps the clutch plates handle the 300s engine output. The clutchs unique slipper design also helps reduce rear wheel-hop that can be caused by aggressive downshifting.
Anti-lock front and rear disc brakes are equipped with a compact, lightweight Nissin ABS system for extra peace of mind when road conditions are questionable. Its 290mm front and 220mm petal-type rear brake rotors are gripped by powerful two-piston hydraulic calipers. Like all Kawasaki Ninja models, the 300 is equipped with high-quality components that were tuned using feedback from professional riders at Kawasakis incredible Autopolis race circuit to help ensure class-leading performance and an entertaining ride for even the most advanced riders.
Though the main frame is highly rigid for optimum handling, not all rigidity is positive; thats why Kawasaki engineers designed special front engine isolation mounts that help make this Ninja noticeably smoother than the lightweight sportbike competition, despite the extra power produced by its 296cc engine.
The Ninja 300 sportbikes front and rear suspension is tuned to complement that rigid frame. Its spring rates provide a comfortable ride on rough city streets, without compromising the legendary sportbike handling that makes it a true Ninja.
Aggressive bodywork features a sharp-edged design and offers effective heat management with superb aerodynamics. This modern sportbike not only looks great, but also features a modern floating windscreen design that helps minimize buffeting for smooth airflow around the riders helmet.

The attractive instrument panel also features indicator lights, while the digital screen incorporates a handy economical riding indicator (ECO) that illuminates to alert riders when they are operating the Ninja 300 in a manner that will maximize fuel economy.
