Kawasaki revealed a new Z300, a naked version of the Ninja 300 sportbike. Based on the Z250 previously released in Asian markets but upgraded to the larger 296cc parallel-Twin engine, the Z300 will be offered in European countries.
Curiously, the Z300 is just one of the new small-displacement models presented at EICMA, along with the single-cylinder Ninja 250SL and Z250SL models. Along with the Ninja 300, Kawasaki now has four similar entry-level models for Europe. There’s no word yet on North American availability for any of the new models, though we hope Kawasaki will at least bring the Z300 over to compete against the likes of the Honda CB300F.
