As far as design is concerned, the new 2021 Ninja 300 BS6 doesn’t sport any major change to its previous model. The Ninja 300 continues to be powered by a 296cc, parallel-twin liquid-cooled engine with peak output figures of 39hp at 11,000rpm and 26.1Nm at 10,000rpm. This engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission along with an assist and slipper clutch. Suspension duties are equipped with 37 mm telescopic forks upfront and a monoshock at the rear. Braking duties are covered by a 290mm single disc upfront and a 220mm disc at the rear with Dual-channel ABS as a standard unit.
Kawasaki made no changes to the overall design of the motorcycle, the only update being the new color schemes. These color schemes include lime green, caramel lime green, and ebony. The BS6 model continues to feature a twin-pod headlight, fairing integrated front blinkers, a muscular fuel tank, split-style seats, and chrome heatshield on the exhaust. There are a semi-digital instrument cluster, a conventional bulb-type headlamp and blinkers and an LED tail lamp included. The Ninja 300 also features a 110/70 R17 section tyre at the front and 140/70 R17 section at the rear.
The prices for the BS6 version has been announced for the Indian market which comes at Rs 3.18 lakh but the price will vary for the Nepalese market. We expect the BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 version to carry a marginal price premium over NRs. 15 lakhs. The BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 would be competing with the likes of the 2021 Yamaha YZF-R3
and the Benelli 302R
, which are also expected to launch in the Nepalese market later this year. Once launched in Nepal, the Ninja 300 will be Kawasaki’s most affordable motorcycle.
