I have had the Kawasaki Ninja 300 for just over two years now. In that time, I have gone on long trips, commute daily, grocery shop, and everything else on this bike. The Kawasaki Ninja 300 is my only vehicle. I thought after two years of ownership and 33 thousand miles under my belt, it was time to share my full review of the ninja 300.

      I have the 2018 300 krt and love it wouldn't trade it for nothing.. had a 700 Suzuki intruder good bike but not fun just boring and not as smooth as this 300 it has all the power you need.

      As a 5'2" girl, i agree! the ninja 300 is a perfect bike for shorter people. I had mine lowered when i first bought it to feel more secure but took it out after a few months. Looks better and handles better without it too!

      Nice vlog. Bro how is it in the city traffic? As you said all the power is in the top end. Is there enough power in the low end for quick flickability?

      I had a full exhaust, air intake and a tune on my 2013 ninja 300 i made 40.8 hp and I could get to 123 mph all day long. It was plenty fast. I now have a 16 cbr600rr and I miss my ninja 300 :( the 600 is cool but the 300 was such a perfect bike

      did you go with white primarily due to the sunlight? i'm assuming black would just get hotter and hotter..

      Definitely appreciate your review. As much as I dig the new 400, with it being so new, I don't want to pay $6k otd. A used Ninjette 300 or r3 fits the bill. Glad to hear you can do longer trips with it. Did want to do 100-200 mi. rides.

      Very nice review! These days, all you see and hear about is how anything below 70-80HP is worthless... but you’ve really explained the strengths of this bike well!
      Has great power (ridden a friend’s Ninja 300) βœ…
      Great looks βœ…
      Not β€œcheap” (in terms of quality) βœ…
      Remember: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A BEGINNER BIKE, ONLY BEGINNERS!

      "This will be a 100% and completely biased review of the ninja 300" at least he's honest about it lmfao

      What do you think a fair price would be for a used ninja 300? I'm in NC and there are A LOT of these bikes on Craigslist all for damn near the same price. Ex. 5000-10k miles for around $4000. Seems high as hell and the dealers want $4999-$5299 depending on color for brand new. I look in Florida and the same bikes are going brand new $3999. What gives?

      the baby ninja 250 that my niece rides (she is about 5'2 ) is also a great bike and is a solid and safe platform out on the road these little ninjas are not cheap toys

      I know it's probably a bit late, but as he mentions the brakes in this video being bad, I noticed he doesn't use the front brake while stopping. That's why the brakes aren't as good as you hoped. If you're braking properly they stop just fine! Otherwise everything is spot on, and great video!

      I caught that video after I wrote this comment. I wasn't trying to bust balls, I really enjoyed the video. I'm wrong so much lolol! I LOVE the ninja 300, and I wish I could ride year round. We get a few months of freezing weather, and I like not dying. Hope everything is going well with you, and again great videos!

      Yeah, I realized my poor braking Practices a few months after shooting this video and put out a correction video.

      0-60 is more like 5.5 secs.. I traded my 300 for a cbr00rr. i love my 600 but i wish i had kept this bike. It's an excellent all around bike. I was always in the garage messing with it. :) good memories

      I know I'm really late but I'm about 5'3 would you still recommend the bike to a shorter rider like myself?
