After getting teased several times in late February 2021, the BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 finally breaks cover. The less polluting version of the baby Ninja has been launched in our country. Compared to the BS4 model, the new Ninja 300 is INR 20,000 costlier.
BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 Price & Colours
Kawasaki India is asking INR 3.18 lakh* for the BS6 Ninja 300. For reference, its predecessor used to retail at INR 2.98 lakh*. Even after the price hike, it continues to be the most affordable Ninja on sale in India. It is available in 3 new colour options - Lime Green, Candy Lime Green, and Ebony.
BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 Features
Apart from introducing new colour schemes, Kawasaki India has implemented no other cosmetic changes in the BS6 Ninja 300. This is a bummer because the baby Ninja has been rocking the same design language for years and the Japanese company should have used this opportunity to give the motorcycle a makeover.

BS6 Kawasaki Ninja 300 Specs
The prime change in the new Ninja 300 is its engine. Although it’s the same 296cc twin-cylinder motor, it now complies with the BS6 emission regulations. The 8-valve, DOHC mill produces 39PS of max power at 11,000rpm and 26.1Nm of peak torque at 10,000rpm. Handling the transmission duties here is a 6-speed gearbox accompanied by an assist and slipper clutch.
