Key Features

• ABS brakes increase rider confidence on the Ninja 300 ABS model

• Low 30.9



296cc Parallel-Twin Cylinder Engine

• Compact parallel-twin design offers good mass centralization for nimble handling

• Tuned to deliver smooth, step-free power with excellent mid-range and high-RPM power for effective highway performance

• Low-friction cam chain promotes maximum power and efficiency

• Moderate 10.6:1 compression ratio allows use of regular 87-octane unleaded gasoline and helps reduce operating temperatures

• High-tech pistons reduce reciprocating weight and feature a hard-anodized coating to minimize friction and boost performance

• Sleeveless “open-deck” die-cast aluminum cylinders minimize weight and feature a friction-reducing “T-treatment” plating

• Crank journal bearings are made from a strong alloy for maximum durability

• Large-volume oil pan features cooling fins and does not compromise ground clearance

• Easy-to-access cartridge-type spin-on oil filter simplifies maintenance



Exhaust System

• Long, curved 2-into-1 header design contributes to the Ninja 300’s low

• and mid-range torque as well as the smooth, step-free power curve

• Complex-geometry silencer design offers modern styling and meets all regulations without compromising engine performance

• Large brushed-finish metal silencer guard reduces noise and helps protect the passenger from exhaust heat

• Meets strict Euro 3 emission standards with a single catalyzer in the collector section



Liquid Cooling with KAMS

• Kawasaki Air Management System (KAMS) uses a special deflector to redirect hot air from the radiator fan, so it exits from the bottom of the motorcycle instead of being blown onto the rider

• Lightweight Denso radiator offers effective engine cooling with minimal space and weight

• Fan design uses a quiet-running motor that also saves space

• Fins on the crankcase provide additional engine cooling



Six-speed Transmission with FCC Assist and Slipper Clutch

• Premium FCC clutch with assist and slipper functions can handle more power with significantly less lever effort than traditional clutches

• Clutch design also makes it easy to modulate and helps reduce the effect of back-torque for reduced wheel “hop” when downshifting

• Six-speed transmission features a roller-type shift drum for smooth actuation and strong gears for maximum durability. It also offers a positive neutral finder that makes it easy to find neutral when stopped

• Involute splines minimize friction and backlash between the gears and shafts for easy gear synchronization and smooth shifting under power



Digital Fuel Injection (DFI®)

• Dual 32mm Keihin throttle bodies and a digital ECU offer easy starting, crisp throttle response, and help low fuel consumption



ABS Brakes with Petal-Type Discs (Ninja 300 ABS model only)

• ABS brakes feature a compact Nissin ABS unit

• The entire ABS system weighs only 4.5 lb

• Large-diameter, 290mm front petal-type disc and a balanced action two-piston caliper offer excellent performance and a natural feel at the lever

• Two-piston caliper grips the 220mm rear petal disc



Rigid Sportbike Chassis

• High-tensile steel frame uses rigid main tubes for optimum chassis response and steering precision

• Frame design and chassis tuning offer confidence-inspiring stability at both high and low speeds

• Beefy swingarm bracket contributes to the frame’s rigidity and helps achieve an optimal balance of chassis stiffness

• Square-beam swingarm complements the frame’s rigidity



Suspension

• 37mm telescopic front fork complements the rigid frame and wide rear tire

• Uni-Trak® rear suspension linkage helps provide predictable sportbike handling and good ride comfort

• Rear shock features five-way adjustable preload to help manage rear ride height whether riding solo or with a passenger



Wheels & Tires

• Attractive 17



High-Tech Instrumentation

• Large easy-to-read analog tachometer

• Multi-function digital display features an easy-to-read speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, digital clock and warning lights

• Economical Riding Indicator (ECO) illuminates to tell the rider when they are riding to maximize fuel economy



Aerodynamic Bodywork

• Sportbike bodywork features an aggressive and edgy design with strong Ninja family DNA that sets the Ninja 300 apart from its lightweight sportbike competitors

• Modern floating windscreen design helps reduce turbulence and rider fatigue

• Aggressive dual headlight design, slim tail section and separate seats enhance the sportbike’s aggressive appearance

• Two helmet holders conveniently located under the rear seat

• Two-stage under-seat storage compartment can hold a small U-lock or similar device and is hinged for easy access to the tool kit

• Two hooks under the tail, plus two behind the rear passenger pegs provide anchor points for securing items to the rear of the bike

• New colors for the 2015 Ninja 300 and Ninja 300 ABS include Lime Green or Pearl Stardust White

• The Ninja 300 SE and Ninja 300 ABS SE models are available in Metallic Moondust Gray / Ebony



Ergonomics

• Rider’s seat is narrower towards the front, making it easier for riders to reach the ground

• Passenger seat features a flat angle, making it easy to also secure cargo or soft luggage

• Slightly forward-slanting seat and slightly raised, wide handlebar give the Ninja 300 a comfortable riding position



Genuine Kawasaki Accessories

• All accessories approved by Kawasaki engineers
