Ergonomic Riding

With its slightly forward-slanting seat and wide, raised handlebars, the Ninja 300 ergonomics were selected to accommodate a wide range of riders. The natural riding position is ideal for sport riding or riding with a passenger, in the city or on the highway.

17EX300B GY1 Braking 280x160

Powerful Braking

ABS models feature Nissin's new ABS control unit. Developed specially for motorcycles, it delivers precise control and is extremely compact. It is only 40% the size of previous Nissin units and weighs 775 g less. ABS and non-ABS available in the Ninja 300 model range, not all colours are available in ABS or Non ABS models.

17EX300B WT1 Muffler 280x160

Short-Style Silencer

Longer, larger-diameter header and centre pipes contribute to stronger performance at all rpm. Short-style silencer with complex cross section delivers good performance, low noise and plenty of lean angle.

Wide Rear Tyre

The 140 / 70 - 17 rear tyre contributes to the Ninja 300's increased straight-line stability.  The standard tyre compound offers good grip in both dry and wet conditions.

* Dunlop TT900GP H rated tyres standard on the 2017 Ninja 300 ABS Models.

Ninja Style and Attitude

Revised Instrumentation

In the daytime, the new colouring for the analogue tachometer dial contributes to the bike’s stylish looks. At night-time the colouring changes, making it easier to read the dial at a glance. The instrumentation offers a fresh design and increases night-time legibility. Multi-function LCD screen functions include: speedometer, clock, fuel gauge, dual trip meters, odometer and Economical Riding Indicator. The Economical Riding Indicator appears on the LCD screen to indicate favourable fuel consumption


Electronic Fuel Injection

Similar to the Ninja ZX-10R and Ninja ZX-6R, dual throttle valves give precise control of intake air, resulting in linear throttle response across the rpm range. Dual throttle valves also contribute to combustion efficiency, and hence engine performance as well as favourable fuel consumption. Low vibration engine design, no annoying vibrations on the highway. Kawasaki heat management technology direct heat away from the rider signifcantly improving rider comfort.  


Slipper clutch

Based on racing technology, the slipper clutch acts as both a back-torque limiter and a self-servo mechanism that enables a lighter clutch lever pull. The slipper clutch makes riding the Ninja 300 ABS easy.

17EX300B GY1 Front Suspension 280x160

Smooth, stable Suspension

Kawasaki's original linkage-equipped Uni-Trak rear suspension delivers a smooth ride and stable handling over a wide range of speeds and road conditions.


Sharp-Handling Chassis

The diamond frame features redesigned main tubes, high tensile steel components, additional gusseting and rubber front engine mounts.  Rigidity balance fine-tuned on the circuit ensures the high level of chassis stability necessary for sport riding.
