The Kawasaki Ninja 300 was launched in October 2013 and has proven to be a worthy successor to the Ninja 250R. Introduced here in 2008, the 250R was considered to be the world’s favourite 250cc bike until it was challenged by Honda CBR 250R. But instead of going the single-cylinder way, the Japanese manufacturer upped the ante by adding more punch to the parallel twin-equipped product.
