To succeed the 250 R Ninja, Kawasaki did not embarrass a compromise. To change a bulb per Ci or a cabochon of clones by there, history of speaking about evolutions, it is not the news of this small Coffee. The reality is simpler: all is changed: larger engine, completely altered design, very new instrument panel, re-examined frame, performances upwards. Thus give way to Kawasaki Ninja 300 R.
What a balance! From the start, the 300 R Ninja shows that she plays in another court. Dynamic and sharp-edged design, footrest sport out of aluminum, clignos integrated into the sides, the glance of ZX- 6 R, floating bubble standard ZX- 10 R, carnage and drawings of the rims inspired by the ZZR 1400 – this machine is emboldened of will have large gauges of Coffee. Nothing to repeat, that throws some. Of near like by far, the mininja (Contraction of minis and ninja, lol) made larger than it is not.
Difficult to believe that one 300 lives down there. Rather 296 Cm3 to be precise. With this ladle of cubic capacity moreover, the Coffee is offered what to pass at the top of the category, and two on the way smoke out its designated rival: Honda CBR 250 R.
But quid of this engine? New twin or reboring of the 250? One does not know it for the moment, but the information detailed by Akashi is astonishing. Between the casings, it is techno: injection with double butterfly and clutch with controlled slip; the kind of gears which one usually sees on a Supersport. In the direction of comfort, the motor mechanically optimized the level of vibrations and thermal dissipation. The sides of carnage are drawn besides for a better dissipation of the heat.
With a power estimated the NS the wake of the 40 horses, one can start to have fun with this 300. Head in the sunken bubble and retros, a young pilot should hang a beautiful top speed, surely sufficient to burn the license. But not of risk: one will go quickly only to circuit… The principal interest for the daily use, it is more cool and better a accel.
Forgotten the traditional one and sad standard instrument panel with needles Renault 5. Place in a very new compound sport: design acute, analogical central rev counter and digital off-set posting. The digital screen informs on speed, the hour, the gauge of fuel, double trip, and offers in no-claims bonus an economic indicator of control.
But to benefit from all that, not question of keeping with the state the structure of fire 250. Place in a new framework, a broader tire displaying from now on 140 mm broad, and worse, if one puts also an ABS. Surprising, isn’t this?!? And yet, the 300 R Ninja could indeed be equipped with anti-locking with the wheels.
This Kawasaki Ninja 300 R replaces with brilliance the 250, and proposes arguments of choice. A genuine machine of conquest for the emerging countries, where most manufacturers sharpen bestseller in this slice of cubic capacity. The echoes will not be also percussion in our country, fond of delicacies of cubic capacities twice more important at least. But times change, energy eat from now on a large share of the wallet, and it is not a chance so more and more of models occupy the slice from 125 to 500 Cm3. Mininja, with you to play!
