After the entire patient wait for the new Ninja 300 from Kawasaki, it is finally available for bookings at a Pro biking dealer near you. It’s supposed to be the next gen upgrade to the best selling quarter litre bike of all time – The Ninja 250R. To takes things even further I went scouting for some cool accessories for the Ninja 300. Checkout my pick…

1. Adjustable levers
Apparently, Kawasaki has provided adjustable brake and clutch levers for the 650cc and upward segments. Adjustable levers add comfort and convenience for riding as well as enhance the handling of the motorcycle. Not the aftermarket levers, but OEM products are available on Amazon for the Kawasaki Ninja 300. If you don’t prefer the online option, wait a little for them to arrive at the motorcycle accessory stores of India.
2. Aftermarket exhaust
If you think the sound of the exhaust has been beefed up in the new Ninja 300, you are sorely mistaken. Sorry about that! Despite altering the low and mid level torque along with a few tweaks, the sound of the exhaust remains pretty close to that of the Ninja 250R. If you are looking for that roar in your Ninja 300, pick the aftermarket exhausts. Some good ones are from Yoshimura, M4 and Leo Vince GP Corsa Slip-On Exhaust.
3. Crash guard
Like it or not, a crash guard is the most important accessory to buy for a motorcycle. Be it Kawasaki or any other brand, to protect the bike in case of a fall, it is absolutely necessary. You could also save a few bucks on the bill thereafter. OEM as well as aftermarket parts are available for the Ninja 300.

4. Wheel rim tapes and Tank pad
Accessories, not just for protection, but also for styling are worth spending money on. The tank pad and rim tapes have little safety feature attached to them but they are great products to add some shine and spark to the motorcycle. My personal take? White rim tapes go nicely with the Ninja 300 Green while the red ones suit the White 300. As for the tank pad, you have a couple of options with the Ninja theme. A simple carbon black still looks best.
5. Front mud guard fender extension
Very few people know about this accessory. Only Kawasaki Ninja riders know that there is not much protection given to the radiator of the bike. The dirt and debris which fly off the front tyre hit the radiator grill head on, eventually damaging the pattern of the grill on the radiator. As per Kawasaki, it is not a threat but taking into consideration the Indian road conditions, you may even see a rock flying off and racing towards your bike.
‘Pyramid Plastics Kawasaki Ninja 250R 08-11 Fender Extender’ is available for the Ninja 250R and the same fits on the new Ninja 300 as well. It is a must have for all Indian riders who intend to buy the new Ninja 300.
