Kawasaki has finally decided to jump on the scooter bandwagon with the J300; the Japanese firm’s first ever scooter offered to the European market.
The J300 has been styled by a Kawasaki design team but its drive train and chassis elements are courtesy of Taiwanese partner Kymco.
In a Kawasaki statement the firm said it recognises a “Europe-wide demand for stylish, easy to ride and reliable scooters, Kawasaki has reacted to an obvious gap in its product offering”.
Head of Kawasaki’s styling department Mr Keishi Fukumoto said: “It was of great importance that our first step into the European scooter market should be with a machine that embodied Kawasaki’s cutting edge design, we are happy that we have achieved this with the styling features of the new J300”.
The new scoot will be unveiled at the Milan Motorcycle Show on November 5 2013 and will be available from dealers later this year.
