2018 Z300

With the Z300, Kawasaki brings the wild excitement of the street-fighter concept to the 300cc class. The Z300’s aggressive street-fighter design like the wide ranging models from the popular Z Series, the Z125, Z650, Z650L, Z900, Z900RS, Z900RS Cafe and the Z1000. 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

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 aluminum cylinder and lightweight coated pistons.

Slipper Clutch

The F.C.C Assist & Slipper Clutch was developed based on feedback from racing activities. The clutch uses two types of cams (an assist cam and a slipper cam) offering a lighter clutch feel and facilitates smoother down changes .

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.

Enhanced Braking Performance

Large-diameter 290 mm front petal disc brake operated by a 2-piston caliper delivers powerful braking and a natural feel at the lever.

Modern Instrumentation

Sporty instrument panel design contributes to the Z300’s advanced-technology and high-quality image. Large, analogue-style tachometer offers easily legibility and great looks. Multi-function LCD screen functions include: speedometer, clock, fuel gauge, dual trip meters, odometer and Economical Riding Indicator. Amber LED back-lighting contributes to the street-fighter image and ensures clear meter visibility at night

Short Style Muffler

Short-style muffler, minimalist tail cowl and wider rear tyre give the rear of the bike an aggressive, racy look.

High Quality Touches

Compact headlamp cowl with mini meter visor is one of the key styling elements of the Z300’s aggressive design. Multi-reflector headlamp from the Z900 reinforces the strong family resemblance.

Curved Header Pipes

Elegant curves of the header pipes complement the Z300 fierce street fighter styling.

Innovative Kawasaki technology like the patented radiator fan cover located behind the radiator directs hot air down and away from the rider, significantly increasing comfort when stuck in heavy traffic. Redirecting the air also helps keep the tank, frame and other parts that contact the rider cooler, further increasing rider comfort.

The Z300 features a compact and lightweight Nissin motorcycle ABS unit.
