Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 Launched – Features, Colors and Price

kawasaki ninja 300 bs6

The most awaited motorcycle, Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6 has finally launched in Indian market. The bike gets a major price hike compared to its BS4 counterpart. So read the full article to know more. But company has not added or changed any features. You’ll get that old instrument cluster with the same halogen headlight setup. They have increased the price just for BS6 engine upgrade which is disappointing.

Overview of the Kawasaki Ninja 300 BS6:

Dual Throttle Valves:

Similar to the Ninja ZX-10R, 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. Larger main throttle valves are and sub-throttle valves help flow a greater volume of air, contributing to the increased engine performance. Fine-atomising injectors with a droplet size of only 60 μm contribute to combustion efficiency.

Assist & Slipper Clutch:

Assist & Slipper Clutch was developed based on feedback from racing activities. The clutch uses two types of cams (an assist cam and a slipper cam), offering two functions. When the engine is operating at normal rpm the assist cam functions as a self-servo mechanism, pulling the clutch hub and operating plate together to compress the clutch plates. This allows the total clutch spring load to be reduced, resulting a lighter clutch lever pull when operating the clutch.

Assist cam also enables the clutch torque capacity to be increased (to match the stronger engine) without gaining weight. When excessive engine braking occurs – as a result of quick downshifts(or an accidental downshift) – the slipper cam comes into play, forcing the clutch hub and operating plate apart. This relieves pressure on the clutch plates to reduce back-torque and help prevent the rear tyre from hopping and skidding.

Sleeveless, aluminium die-cast cylinder:

Sleeveless, aluminium die-cast cylinder features plated bores, just like on our Ninja ZX-10R and 6R supersport machines. The cylinder features an open-deck design, offering excellent heat dissipation.

Circuit-developed Diamond Frame:

The diamond frame in Ninja 300 features high-tensile steel components (known as special steels which develop high yield, tensile and fatigue strengths, as well as excellent toughness), which offers high strength and high durability – both essential in a high-performance frame.
