Kawasaki Ninja 300 first ride: "It feels like a big bike"

Senior Road Tester Adam Child is in Frankfurt, Germany for the launch of Kawasaki's new Ninja 300 – not merely a big bore 250, but an entirely new bike. He's just got off after his first session on the bike and said: "It feels much more like a big bike than the previous model, not just in terms of the size, but...

I Think I've spotted how....

Kawasaki have saved enough money to bring out a few new bikes..... they have sacked their entire Paint shop and Paint research Staff.

Nearly There!

I can't believe it's taken so long for someone to design a bike close to what thousands of us are lining up to buy. I read in the MCN article that 40% of sales on the outgoing 250 go to restricted licence holders. I would have potentially made up part of the other 60%, as I'm a full licence holder that wants a light and nippy sports bike, but it was just too underpowered and the high bars killed the sporty looks. The same can be said for the CBR250R which doesn't even get the Repsol colour scheme and looks less sporty than the 125. Instead I ride the closest thing I can find, an imported CBR400RR, hoping that the new Moto3 will spawn a new breed of fun bikes or that maybe Yamaha will produce a YZF R250. I can't wait to see how the other manufacturers decide to take a piece of this huge market. As soon as one of them makes a bike with similar power but less weight and a sportier stance I'm putting my name down for it.

Just posted a review of this bike on the Principal blog...filled the tank, thrashed it mildly aorund Cheshire lanes, then did some M56 at a steady 75..ish and got just over 62MPG from it.

Great handling bike btw, loved the front disc too. al.
