The 250cc days are over for Kawasaki and for 2013 they are coming out with a 300cc sports Ninja for the first time ever.
Bad news for those who own a motorcycle in the quarter-liter category: the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 has officially made your bike obsolete. After feeling the pressure as bikes like the CBR250 started to encroach on the beginner bike market share Kawasaki has virtually dominated for two decades, Team Green saw it fit to elevate the stakes even more by dramatically revamping the venerable Ninja 250 into what is now the 300.
The bike comes with ABS as additional option. The new rubber mounted engine makes the drive more fun with minimal engine vibration. What really caught my attention was when I read that the noted fuel average was 105mpg.
At the end of the 32-mile course, the winner recorded an astounding 105 mpg! Perhaps more impressive, the worst of the floggers still recorded 50 mpg! I logged the second best figure at 103 mpg. It took incredibly slow speeds and drastic measures to reach the triple digit mark, however. Still, under normal conditions, expect numbers in the high 60s or low 70s. With 4.5 gallons of fuel onboard, you?ll go pretty far before looking for a gas station.
Price of the nice little bike is not revealed yet, but it is quite evident that the bike will be a great hit in the world market, while we are happy with our 125s and 150s
The outer oil filter is impressive addition too:
