Kawasaki NOT to Discontinue Ninja 300 [Speculation]

But the report says Ninja 300 BS6 launch not before April 2020 and instead the upgraded motorcycle may only come by mid-2020!

There is something very interesting that has happened! Kawasaki has already discontinued the Ninja 300 from its major markets including Europe, America, Japan etc and the Ninja 400 (also sold in India) is its successor. However, Kawasaki localised the motorcycle for our Indian market and reduced the prices which immediately increased sales significantly.

However, bikers have been a little sceptical about Ninja 300’s future, specially with the Bharat Stage VI emission norms kicking in on 1st April 2020. The question was – will Kawasaki India take the pains to update an internationally-discontinued motorcycle for new emission norms for just a few thousand units? Looks like it will!

A speculative report at Zigwheels claims that company sources have informed that work on the updated Ninja 300 has already started. However, it says that it will not be ready before the April deadline. Chances are that the new Ninja will be introduced towards the middle of the year. If this goes true – we may be looking for a gap of few months.

Like others, Ninja 300 BS6 may also lose a few horses in the process. Currently, it is the most affordable twin cylinder faired sports motorcycle in India. If and when it launches, expect a price hike of anywhere between Rs 10,000 to 40,000 on the updated motorcycle. This also means that if you are planning to get one, buy one before April 2020 so that you get a more powerful machine at a much lower price.
