The 300 cc Kwacker with the 50 cc capacity bump features a slipper clutch that is a first for a bike in this capacity and a first on any bike introduced in India. Visually the Ninja 300 has the same looks as the 2013 Ninja 250R and the updated version finally gets a good looking speedometer console. The 50 cc bump has resulted in a pretty good power bump and the new number lies at 38.45 HP at a high 11,000 RPM. The torque figures lie at 27 Nm at 10,000 RPM and Kawasaki says that they have given enough low end torque for stress free city riding.
