After days of teasing on social media, Kawasaki has officially released the 2022 model of the Ninja 300 sports bike in the country. The bike hasn’t received any technical improvements from the manufacturer, and it costs Rs 3.37 lakh in India’s two-wheeler market (ex-showroom).

Aside from some aesthetic tweaks, Kawasaki has revised the Ninja 300’s colour scheme and added two new vibrant colours: Candy Lime Green and Ebony. The fairing and fuel tank graphics on the Candy Lime Green and Ebony shade versions have been updated, while the Lime Green shade variant’s graphics are unchanged from the 2021 edition.
Mechanically, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 2022 model retains the same 296cc liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder, fuel-injected engine that meets BS6 standards. It has a maximum power output of 39 HP at 11,000 rpm and a peak torque output of 26.1 Nm at 10,000 rpm. To refresh your recollection, the Ninja 300 BS4 model had a maximum output of 39HP and a peak torque of 27Nm. As a result, the power remains the same while the torque produced by the BS6-compliant variant is slightly lower. The engine is still linked to a 6-speed transmission.
In India, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 MY2022 comes in three colours: Candy Lime Green, Lime Green, and Ebony. The Ebony colour scheme is all black with Ninja green highlights, whereas the Candy Lime Green colour scheme has Ninja green as the dominant colour with ebony graphics. When it comes to the Lime Green colour choice (KRT Edition), it has a Green, Black, and White colour scheme that looks great. The 2022 Ninja 300 is identical to the previous model, with the exception of new colours and artwork.
