2015-2017 Kawasaki Ninja 300 Review

Launched in 2012 for the 2013 model year, the Ninja 300, displacing the old Ninja 250 with a few more cubes. This sport-bike looking ride offers the market a lightweight, easy to handle option with a 296 cc engine, a six-speed transmission and just enough alphabet-soup tech acronyms to be modern without whacking the price. As far as being a starter bike, yeah, you can call it that. It’s also for folks that want a sport-bike look in a commuter bike or just to have a bike with a smaller engine size so it doesn’t smack your wallet on insurance premiums. It’s smooth, it’s flickable and I might even call it a sport-bike trainer. As a starter or a trainer, you’ll outgrow it; but for a lightweight, fun bike, this could be your huckleberry.

As far as sportbikes go, the Ninja 300 has a low seat height at less than 31 inches, so you don’t have to be tall to flat-foot this bike. The flip-side of that is tall folks might feel a little cramped. Another thing to consider is the stock exhaust can make it a little whiny, so if it bothers you, a trip to the aftermarket might be your ticket.
