2016 Z300 ABS SE

Z300: World’s First 300cc Street Fighter

With the Z300, Kawasaki brings the wild excitement of the street-fighter concept to the 300cc class. The Z300’s aggressive street-fighter design is inspired by larger models from the popular Z Series, the Z1000 and Z800. Its muscular bodywork hints at the bike’s performance, while ensuring that the Z300 stands out from the crowd. And the superb level of fit and finish further separates it from ordinary “naked” models.

Z Style

Sharing the high-performance engine and chassis of the Ninja 300, the Z300 offers the acceleration and handling to dominate the 300cc class. Its powerful 296 cm³ Parallel Twin engine and circuit-developed frame deliver a high level of riding excitement. Coupled with a relaxed, upright riding position and wide handlebar enabling active rider control, urban riding excitement increases exponentially.

Parallel Twin engine produces smooth, torquey power at low and medium rpm and powerful acceleration at high rpm. Like the Ninja 300, it features a sleeveless, plated, die-cast aluminium cylinder and lightweight coated pistons.

2016 Z300 ABS SE The Rider Experience

The Rider Experience

Like its engine, the Z300 chassis, too, is based on the high-performance chassis of the Ninja 300. The circuit-developed diamond frame has balanced rigidity, matched to supple suspension settings, ensuring both a very high level of performance and excellent ride quality. The wide 140 mm rear tyre adds to handling stability. And with the engine partially rubber mounted, vibrations are minimal, further contributing to the high-quality ride feel.

Muscular Bodywork and High-Quality Touches

Inspired by the street-fighter image of its Z Series brethren, the Z300 also features a “mass-forward, minimalist-tail” design. Its muscular, athletic bodywork hints at the bike’s performance, while accentuating the engine and curved exhaust headers. Aggressive-looking whether on the move or standing still, the Z300 has a big-bike presence and an instantly recognisable silhouette that says, at-a-glance, that this is no ordinary “naked” bike.
