Oh god, finally some concrete news with proof!
Now only if someone could tell me if the special edition would be making its way to India, I really love the way the SE looks and according to riders, ABS is only available in the Special Edition.
Hope they don't give us lame excuses about spare parts availability and restrict us to only Green like the N650R.

More and more @Pune!
Unofficial bookings already open with N300 base: 3.2L and N300 with ABS: 3.4L (Just couldn't confirm if this is an ex-showroom price or OR price).

The launch of the Kawasaki Ninja 300 (by Bajaj) seems to be around the corner with numerous sightings of this Sportsbike. Motorcycle websites have posted pictures of the green Kawasaki in Pune.

The Ninja 250R had a promising start in India. However, the twin faced increasing competition from Bajaj’s stable itself; the KTM Duke 200 & Pulsar 200NS, along with the Honda CBR 250R, have eaten into the 250cc Ninja’s sales. They were also significantly better priced. Although the Ninja 250R was quite a performer, customers found more value in the other bikes at lower price points. The launch of the Ninja 300 might help Kawasaki distance itself from the current crop of 200-250cc motorcycle. The higher cubic capacity could hit the sweet spot in terms of the price-to-performance ratio.

What's new:
  1. Reworked body language and a new frame. Looks more edgy than before.
  2. 296cc parallel twin engine with a 6-speed transmission.
  3. The Ninja 300 is expected to churn out 39 BHP @ 11,000 RPM. However, we'll wait for exact figures post launch.
  4. ABS to be available as an option.
  5. The meter console is in line with current tastes and has an analogue tachometer + digital speedometer.
  6. A better digital fuel-injection system that is supposed to be more efficient.
  7. F.C.C. clutch with assist & slipper functions.
  8. 10-spoke 17" alloy wheels with a 140 section rear tyre.
  9. Curved 2-into-1 exhaust system.
  10. Revised suspension setup.

All details mentioned above have been sourced from Kawasaki's website. Most of it is expected to remain the same on the bike sold in India.

Pre-launch bookings are rumoured to have already begun, with ex-showroom prices for the N300 (non-ABS) at 3.2 Lakhs and the N300 with ABS at 3.4 Lakhs. Do note that this pricing is entirely speculative.

Alright, the 250R 2013 review.

http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/first-im...de-report.html
  • The 2013 Ninja 250R will be powered by an all new 249 cc, 4-stroke, fuel-injected, liquid cooled parallel twin engine pumping out 31.5 BHP at 8500 RPM mark, which is slightly less than the older baby Ninja that gave around 33 BHP at 11000 RPM
  • Price: The newer and the older Ninja 250R are both available in Philippines at around 250,000 PHP or 332,795 Rupees
  • No ABS.

Someone equally close to both the KTM and the Ninja platforms was recently gushing about the 300 in superlatives. That says a lot to me.

Bajaj, this time around please get more colors than that goblin green and the dull black. Is there such a big issue in providing more choices to your paying customers? I am sure you are listening....

I don't mind the black, or even the green w/ black decals. I just hope it comes with ABS, will be really disappointed if not..

Should be since they are not taking of 250's booking anymore. I hope they do keep it at 3lac max since Duke 390 at 2.25-2.5 will lure more riders to KTM.

"Kawasaki Ninja 300" Booking open from today 3:00PM

That's probably the highest retail price in the country.

IIRC, the 250R touched the 3.47L mark just before it was pulled off the shelves.
