2015 Kawasaki Ninja 300 Motorcycle Review

2015 Kawasaki Ninja 300 Motorcycle Review
Even though I am not a target customer for such a bike (6’2″ 250 lbs.) I wanted to try this for a few reasons. First, to directly compare it to it’s main rival, the new Yamaha R3 that I reviewed last week. Second, to see how things have changed over the past 15+ years, from the previous generation which I had a tiny bit of seat time with – the 250. This is a rock solid package. It’s simply a scaled down sportbike in all regards, perfect for blasting down the road, a track day, twisties – just plain good cheap fun. Nothing stood out as any major flaws, Kawasaki has definitely put the small sport bike experience under their belt to great use.

  1. The only thing I didnt like about my Ninja 300 when I bought it was the grips were too skinny and my hands cramped after a while, and not a long while either. I put Pussygrips on it and solved that one issue. Now it’s pretty much perfect.

  2. Thanks for making this video. I’m 6’3 and around 230 lbs. and am getting into bikes. I’m looking into the ninja and this review has helped plenty.

  3. Dream bike
    50bhp 300cc i4, EFI, 20k redline, ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes, smooth fueling, 380 lbs wet, abs, slipper, steering damper, fairings, gear ind, positive neutral
    Upright/race adjustable ergos

  4. I used to have major cramps on my hand during the first 3 days and then it went away. Not sure why but i suspect i was probably nervous and gripping too hard. I’m soon going to finish the break-in period and will find out what this bike is capable of. I did go past the 4k rpms just briefly and it’s remarkably faster than the 250 i used to train on.

  5. Good review. I’m 6’1″ 280 lbs and I love riding this bike. It has no problems hauling me around at highway speeds or through the twisty and hilly roads. It definitely performs better than I had expected it to. I mainly got it for the wife to start out on but I’m going to enjoy it in the meantime, and it’s excellent on gas. Roaring toyz makes a good and easily adjustable lowering links for these, adjustable from 1-5 inches, I just installed one today. If you lower the bike, you will have to get the shorter kickstand with it. So far I can’t fault this bike on anything.

  6. I’m getting a suzuki gsxr worth 10k new as a begginer bike yea I know it’s probably not the best for a beginner but I want something that’s cool looking and plus I figured is get one with gears I’m gonna have to learn eventually any way..

  7. Any smaller blokes given this bike a ride? I’m 5’5″ with a 28″ inseam. Would I be able to comfortably have both feet on the ground with this guy? (wearing tennis shoes)

  8. i was watching this video thinking i know this guys voice it sounds just like the guy from cigar obsession. duh it is!

  9. I’m only 5’10” tall,..I’ve sat on these motorcycles,and they fit me perfectly! Unlike others who feel they may grow out of this motorcycle,..I don’t think that will be the case for me! I see myself having this motorcycle long term! I don’t have my motorcycle yet,….target date/month for purchase is about June or July of 2017. I’ll be ordering a Candy Plasma Blue Ninja 300. I need to take the MSF Course first!

  10. can you do the 650 also please, and review it for beginner.
    btw how much is your weight and how long are you?

  11. hey man im only 16 but its been my dream to always have a bike. Are there any legal requirements for me to get a bike?

  12. it’s not a 600. and that bike is as big as 600 it’s not small. engine size not bike size

  13. I’m 6’3 and I sat on one at the dealer and it is a little cramped but idk should I get it?

  14. I am 6’2″ 230 pounds I wanted to get the Kawasaki Ninja 300 as my first bike. I have never driven a bike and dont want anything to big. Would the ninja be a great Bike for me? Also Twowheelobsession can you do a review on the KTM RC 390?

  15. The route you took was beautiful. Flat road, not much in terms of suburban development. Lovely. Didn’t like the amount of traffic lights however; silly Kawasa.

  16. I have a zx14, but wouldn’t mind a 300 for going to work. speed isn’t everything and this bike will keep you out lf trouble

  17. i know this is a bit late, but i got a question. I’m 24, almost 25, five foot two ish, would i fit on this easily? don’t know anywhere to find this in Iowa.
