Back from the dead: Kawasaki relaunches Ninja 300 in Brazil


Kawasaki has announced the relaunch of the Ninja 300 in Brazil, its 300cc sportbike, which returns after being discontinued in 2018, when it was replaced by the Ninja 400, to be the brand’s cheapest bike.

The model is one of the main icons of Brazilian motorcycling and was the brand’s sales leader, with more than 10,000 units produced in Brazil.

Affectionately nicknamed ‘Ninjinha’ (‘little Ninja’), the 300cc motorcycle collected numerous awards over the years and was widely recognized by the specialized publishing market.

The 2023 Ninja 300 will be available at Kawasaki dealerships from the second half of March with a suggested public price of BRL 29,990.00 + shipping (that’s about US$ 5,811).

Thus, it is the cheapest sports bike above 300cc in Brazil, since its main rival, Yamaha YZF-R3, starts at BRL 32,590.00 (US$ 6,315).

How is the Ninja 300

The 2023 Kawasaki Ninja 300 returns with the same design as when it was discontinued in 2018. It is harmonious and still very modern, with defined angles and flowing lines.

The aluminum alloy wheels maintain the bold, sporty design with ‘chicken foot’ spokes. They are equipped with a daisy-shaped brake disc. The tires are Pirelli Diablo Rosso II, measuring 110/70-17 at the front and 150/60-17 at the rear.

But, the main highlight of the Ninja 300 is its 296 cm³ twin-cylinder engine with electronic fuel injection and liquid cooling, which is capable of generating up to 39 hp of maximum power at 11,000 rpm.

In addition, it is equipped with a 6-speed gearbox, assist and slipper clutch, and suspension with telescopic fork at the front and Uni-Trak with gas shock absorber at the rear.

Anyway, the 2023 Kawasaki Ninja 300 is back from the dead and hits stores in Lime Green to be the gateway to the brand’s sports line. Above it, the Ninja 400 and Ninja 650 continue to be offered.
