The 2018 Kawasaki Ninja 300 ABS comes from the same 296 cc parallel-twin cylinder, 8 Valve, DOHC engine tuned for 38 bhp at 11,000 rpm and 27 Nm of peak torque at 10,000 rpm. The motor comes paired with a 6-speed transmission. The Ninja 300 also comes with assist and slipper clutch that makes for lighter clutch action and faster gear changes. The bike is underpinned by the high-tensile strength diamond frame, while suspension duties are handled by 37 mm telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking performance comes from 290 mm petal disc brakes up front with dual piston calipers, while the rear gets a 220 mm petal disc brake. Dual-channel ABS is now standard.
