Motorbike Mondays: Kawasaki Z300

April 20, 2015

If you’ve got a touch of the post-weekend blues, Motorbike Mondays is here to put the wind in your sails! Roaring onto our radar today is Kawasaki’s latest addition to the Z Series – the Supernaked Z300. Despite its small engine size, this motorbike comes with head-turning design and impressive bodywork – add that to the bike’s surprisingly powerful performance and this nippy little number has plenty to to boast about. Let’s take a closer look at what this naked bike has to offer in today’s Kawasaki Z300 review.

Design

Kawasaki motorcycles are always striving to bring their customers more, and this naked number does just that. The Z300 is essentially a Supernaked, newly styled version of Kawasaki’s Ninja – and from design to performance, this bike comes with bags of character. The Supernaked body work gives the Z300 an athletic look, which is evident in its performance figures when the bike hits the road. If you want a Supernaked Kawasaki with the ability to make you stand out from the crowd, the Z300 is the way to go.

Performance and Handling

In terms of the Z300’s engine, specs are identical to that of the liquid-cooled, 4-stroke Parallel Twin Ninja 300’s. And when it comes to performance, don’t let the Kawasaki Z300’s dinky dimensions fool you. This bike uses its small size to its advantage and easily cuts through the traffic. The bike claims 39hp and power peaks at 11,000rpm, with its top speed just exceeding 100mph. Realistically though, revving it up to 5,000rpm will give you enough acceleration for town use. The single front 290mm petal disc and twin-pot caliper provides more than enough brake bite and stopping power. Overall, performance is impressive for such a small ride.

Features

The Z300’s optional equipment list is is tempting – but it will cost you. The slip-on Akrapovic carbon exhaust reduces the weight of the Z300 but will set you back £481. And if you’re looking to enhance the sporty styling of the bike, a pillion seat cover is available in Raw Graystone (£114) or Candy Flat Blazed Green (£126).
