The Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 has been launched in the Indian market with a price tag of Rs 3.18 lakh (ex-showroom). Kawasaki has launched the 2021 Ninja 300 BS6 at Rs 20,000 higher than the older BS4 model. It gets new colour schemes but remains identical to the BS4 model when it comes to the design and mechanicals.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 is one of the most-awaited motorcycles in the 300cc segment. The Ninja 300 has always been a versatile motorcycle that can handle regular commutes, long rides on the highway, scraping the pegs on the twisties and even a track day, all with equal ease.
It came with a rev-happy motor, and a taut chassis and suspension setup that made it a pleasure to ride. Kawasaki even started producing the Ninja 300 locally in order to keep the price tag under check and this resulted in an increase in sales numbers. In December 2019 though, Kawasaki stopped production of the Ninja 300.
The Indian government had set April 01, 2020 as the deadline for the implementation of the more stringent BS6 emissions norms. Kawasaki discontinued the Ninja 300 BS4 way ahead of the deadline. It has been nearly a year now since BS6 norms were implemented and Kawasaki has now launched the BS6 Ninja 300.
In terms of design and styling, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 remains very similar to the BS4 model. It gets the same halogen bulb-powered twin-pod headlamp up front with a large windshield above it. The fairing with sharp design lines has also been retained while the rear-end gets an LED tail lamp.
The biggest change comes in the form of new decals on the bodywork. These new decals make the motorcycle look stunning. Colour options include Lime Green, Candy Lime Green and Ebony. The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 is powered by the same liquid-cooled, 296cc, parallel-twin engine.
Changes have been made to the engine in order to ensure BS6 compliance. However, these changes haven’t affected power and torque outputs which stand at 38.4bhp 27Nm respectively. A 6-speed gearbox drives the rear wheel via an assist and slipper clutch. The 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 features an analogue-digital instrument cluster.
Suspension duties are handled by a telescopic fork up front and a monoshock at the rear. A 290mm petal disc up front and a 220mm petal disc at the rear governed by a dual-channel ABS handle braking duties. Bookings for the 2021 Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 are now open, and deliveries are expected to begin soon.
