Kawasaki India is gearing up to launch two new bikes in the Indian market soon. The company has confirmed the arrival of both the bikes via a social media post.

While the Japanese bike maker hasn't announced which exact models will go on sale in the country, sources suggest that one of the bikes will be the Ninja 300 in the latest 2021 iteration. For the record, the Ninja 300 has been the best-seller from Kawasaki in the country.

In terms of exterior design updates, the bike is expected to feature an updated styling with new colour themes and graphics. On the other hand, the rest of the design bits such as fairing integrated front turn indicators, twin-pod headlight setup, semi-digital instrument cluster, muscular fuel tank, split-style seats, etc. will most likely remain unchanged.

Powering the Ninja 300 will be a 296 cc, liquid-cooled, parallel-twin motor delivering 38.4 bhp of maximum power and 27 Nm of peak torque. The engine will be compliant with the latest BS 6 emission norms. The transmission option (six-speed gearbox) will also remain unchanged. The new Ninja 300 is also expected to receive the company's new Bluetooth-connected tech with brand's dedicated 'RIDEOLOGY' connectivity application.

Goes without saying, the pricing of the new Ninja 300 will be slightly higher than the previous model which was priced at 2.98 lakh (ex-showroom). It may cost somewhere around 3.20 lakh (ex-showroom).
