Kawasaki Ninja 300 Fairings and Design

By   |   

As far as sport bikes go, the 300 is suitable for beginners, although you may think otherwise once you find out the bike's top speed has been maxed out at 106 miles per hour.

1. Kawasaki's Ninja 250R 2008-2012 VS Kawasaki's Ninja 300 2013-2015

When put side-by-side the 250R, the fairing is immediately noticeable because it is taller. From a power standpoint, the engine has been streamlined and creates more power than the 250R at 34.77 hp as opposed to the 250R's 25.48 In addition to taller gearing and slightly more power, the gas tank has been scaled back a little bit in size at four-and-a half gallons, and fuel rates that came in at seventy miles per gallon, also an improvement over its predecessor.

2. Bodywork Design and Engine Power

The bodywork on the 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 300 is what you would expect from the Ninja franchise; a daring, almost in your face sort of design that lets you know that although this may be a lightweight sport-bike, it holds an engine that is not to be considered lightly. For what is considered an entry-level bike, it is not to be underestimated. For starters, with its powerful engine, it also has very capable and forgiving handling ability (beginners take note). Also along those lines are the big brakes this sport-bike has, another feature making this bike attractive for those newbies and novices who may need the confidence associated with a powerful bike that may need immediate forgiveness from an over-eager and under-experienced rider... assuming the brakes do not throw said rider over the handlebars; shudder to think.

Timing is everything in life, so if you are a sport-bike enthusiast looking for that one extra reason to push you towards buying a bike, 2014 is a good year for Kawasaki's Ninja. In fact, this year marks the thirtieth anniversary of the Ninja, and its fairings and designs will pay homage to this milestone with some exceptionally robust looks and colors; green, to be specific. The graphics package for the bodywork is a respectable nod to World SuperBike Racing, as are the wheel-rim tapes, which have also been color-coded.

3. Available Color Schemes

Kawasaki's 2014 Ninja 300 is offered in three color choices, including ebony, lime green, or ebony and pearl stardust white. The fairings graphics kits, complete or otherwise, give the bike a very capable and almost formidably look, which is more than likely the desired effect, especially if you choose the Monster artwork. In keeping with the high energy drink guaranteed to rot your stomach-lining theme, Rockstar also has a line of complete graphics for the fairings kit, but they just don't look as cool. From this rider's point of view, if you're not sure just yet how you want to go with your fairings, start by investing in a windscreen graphic kit and some tight wheel strips so you can keep your options open.
