Kawasaki Ninja 300 has always been a very popular motorcycle in India even when it had a high price tag back in the day. Its flawless Japanese twin-cylinder engine, Ninja branding, and sharp looks kept the bike enthusiasts hooked. And when Kawasaki dropped the price to Rs 2.98 lakh (ex-showroom) in 2018, people literally stormed the dealerships. However, the current Ninja 300 is still running on a BS 4 engine. So what will happen to it after 1st April 2020?
Thankfully, it will be alive. The latest reports tell us that Kawasaki is working on making the Ninja 300 BS 6 compliant. This shows the value of Ninja 300 in the Indian market. Kawasaki already discontinued it in Europe and the USA and replaced it with the brand-new Ninja 400. The Ninja 400 is also available here in India but its absurd price tag of Rs 4.99 lakh (ex-showroom) repels most of the customers.
BS 6 compliant Ninja 300 won’t come out before the implementation date of the new emission norms. It’s being speculated that Kawasaki might launch it sometime in mid-2020. We are also expecting its price to see a marginal hike of Rs 15-20,000.
