Kawasaki India has begun deliveries of the Ninja 300 BS6 motorcycle in the country. The company has posted the deliveries update on its social media handle. The company recently updated the entry-level supersport motorcycle to meet BS6 emission standards.
The social post from Kawasaki said, “We have started the delivery of Ninja 300. Our respective dealer executive will contact you based on the regional lockdown condition. On behalf of our Kawasaki team, we request you to follow all the Covid 19 guidelines during the delivery.”
This means that the cities subjected to Coronavirus lockdown restrictions in the country would start the deliveries at a later date. This is to ensure the local guidelines are being met at the time of deliveries of the motorcycle.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 was launched in April this year with a price tag of Rs 3.18 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). The Ninja 300 BS6 continues to be the entry point to the brand in the Indian market.
Kawasaki is offering the Ninja 300 BS6 motorcycle with three colour options. This includes Ebony, Lime Green and Candy Lime Green Type 3. Apart from the updated engine, the BS6 model also features new graphics.
However, the overall design of the Ninja 300 BS6 remain unchanged from its BS4 counterpart. It continues to feature the distinctive front-end design with a twin-headlamp set up for an aggressive-looking design.
The Ninja 300 BS6 is powered by an updated version of the same engine that powered the BS4 motorcycle. The liquid-cooled parallel-twin 296cc unit produces a maximum of 38bhp at 11,000rpm and a peak torque of 26.1Nm at 10,000rpm; mated to a six-speed gearbox with a slip-assist clutch.
The Ninja 300 BS6 borrows all the other bits from the BS4 model. This includes clip-on handlebars, windscreen, full-fairing with mounted front turn-signal indicators, pilot lamps, split seats, LED taillamps, exhaust and more. The BS6 motorcycle continues to feature the semi-digital instrument cluster.
The motorcycle features a 37mm telescopic fork at the front and a mono-shock unit at the rear, with adjustability for pre-load. The anchoring department on the motorcycle is handled via a single 290mm petal disc and 220mm petal disc at the front and rear, respectively. The Ninja 300 BS6 features dual-channel ABS as standard.
The Ninja 300 tips the scale at 179kg (kerb) featuring a 17-litre fuel tank. The 2021 Ninja 300 BS6 come equipped with 17-inch alloys wheels shod with a 110/70 section tyre at the front and a 140/70 section tyre at the rear.
The Kawasaki Ninja 300 rivals the KTM RC390 and the TVS Apache RR310. The Kawasaki is priced slightly higher as compared to its rivals in the country.
