2016 Z300 ABS SE
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.
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.
Sporty instrument panel
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 backlighting contributes to the street-fighter image and ensures clear meter visibility at night.
The ø38 mm throttle body contributes to the quick-revving character. Fuel injection ensures stable fuel delivery and ensures excellent starting characteristics, whether the engine is hot or cold.
Diamond frame from the Ninja 300 features high-tensile steel components, reinforcement gusseting and rubber front engine mounts. Rigidity balance fine-tuned on the circuit ensures the high level of chassis stability necessary for sport riding.
Large-diameter 290 mm front petal disc brake operated by a 2-piston calliper delivers powerful braking and a natural feel at the lever.
The F.C.C Assist & Slipper Clutch was developed based on feedback from racing activites. The clutch uses two types of cams (an assist cam and a slipper cam) offering 25% lighter clutch feel and facilitates smoother down changes .
