Kawasaki Z300

The naked Kawasaki Z300 model appeared in 2015, becoming the successor of the Kawasaki Z250 model in Europe, Oceania and South America.

In Asian countries (including Japan) Z250 became known as Z250 ABS and was essentially a Z300, but with a motor from Ninja 250 (the new Z300 model received a motor from Ninja 300).

The Kawasaki Z300 was based on an in-line 2-cylinder liquid-cooled engine with a volume of 296 cc and 39 hp. power and 27 Nm of torque. The motor is revolving, with maximum performance at 10,000-11,000 rpm.

The frame of the Kawasaki Z300 is a steel diamond-shaped structure, the suspensions are simple - a regular 37 mm telescopic fork in the front, a swingarm with a progressive monoshock at the rear. The braking system is completely disc, there are versions with ABS.

Compared to the previous Kawasaki Z250, the new Z300 has an Assist & Slipper clutch. The restyled Asian version Kawasaki Z250 ABS was also equipped with this system.
