There are high chances that Kawasaki might also equip the Ninja 300 with LED headlights and updated instrument console. It is being rumored that Minda Corporation is helping Kawasaki by providing majority of parts for local production while tyres are said to be sourced from MRF for cost effective pricing. The Made-in-India model is expected to be available in 2 colors: Candy Lime Green & Plasma Blue.

Not just that, Kawasaki’s Make-in-India initiative can include other entry level bikes in the near future. The basic purpose of launching this impressively priced model is to capture more market share than KTM sport bikes like RC 390 and Duke 390, and the recently launched 300cc BMW bikes, the G310R & G310GS.
