The Updated Kawasaki Ninja 300 KRT edition boasts bold new graphics and Kawasaki Racing Team stickers. The bike has been silently launched in India and features brand new black and green livery.

The Kawasaki Ninja 300 is generally considered as one of the best entry-level performance bikes for novice riders, who will later graduate to 600cc – 800cc motorcycles and eventually to litre-class bikes. The bike offers enough performance to not embarrass its rider on a track, along with everyday practicality for the owner’s day-job. Along with the go, the bike also features a lot of show too with razor-sharp cuts and creases in the body-work, accentuated further by the gorgeous livery on the special edition variant available in the showroom. Now Kawasaki has made the bike even more desirable by slyly tweaking the special edition colours and slapping some Kawasaki Racing Team stickers.

Kawasaki has updated the special edition variant of its Ninja 300 motorcycle and has made it more gorgeous to ogle at. The new 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 300 KRT edition features black and green livery in place of the erstwhile white and green paint job. The bike now also features ‘KRT’ edition badges near the fuel cap and the bottom part of the fairing is now in black again, instead of green. The same colour scheme is used by the Kawasaki factory racing team in the World Superbike Championship.

The 2016 Kawasaki Ninja 300 KRT edition is equipped with a liquid-cooled 296cc parallel-twin engine which belts out 39 PS of power and 27 Nm of torque. The bike also features racing inspired FCC clutch which reduces lever effort by up to 25 percent and race-style ‘slipper’ function to reduce rear-wheel ‘hop’ that can be associated with high-RPM downshifting. The bike is fitted with a multifunction LCD display including a speedometer, odometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge and a digital clock.

Reports indicate that the new 2017 Kawasaki Ninja 300 is laden with sintered front brake-pads, which has led to a considerable increase in the feedback from the brakes. The new KRT edition Ninja 300 is priced the same as the special edition it replaces.
