Aesthetics - If you are a beginner but want to be taken seriously, Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle is the thing to have. It doesn’t look like a beginner bike as it is fantastically stylish. The look of the motorcycle demands a second glance with its free flowing design and paint job.

Transmission - Many motorcycle riders have learned driving cars first. The automatic transmission in cars makes them used to of automatic shift system. The shifting mechanism of Kawasaki ninja motorcycle has an assist and slipper clutch. This essentially means that your bike won’t stall or jerk forward even if you are new to manual transmission.

Price - This may seem as a starter bike, but experience bikers are love the ninja experience as well. One of the major reasons behind this is the amount of style and power provided by Kawasaki ninja is the said price. It is not only cheaper than other motorcycles in the same range but also fuel efficient as it gives you great mileage.

Engine - The engine is 296 cc, parallel twin engine. It has its own water cooling system, which complements the system overall, but reduces the engine noise to a minimum. A clever device called the Kawasaki Air-Management System (KAMS) shunts hot air from the radiator down under the bike and away from the rider, the benefits of which are impossible to overstate, especially for ATGATTs (All The Gear All The Time) in warmer climes. The Kawasaki ninja has dual fuel injection that meters the fuel according to the usage.

Chassis - The frame is made of high tensile steel and the main frame tanks are shunned under the gas tank which makes it a near perfect structural design. Swing arm-pivot reinforcement and a square-beam swing arm complete the standing chassis and stiffen an area much given to flexing under a strain which makes it a highly stable motorcycle.

The Kawasaki Ninja motorcycle has these following merits:

  • The outer look is amazing
  • Powerful engine which can operate for long hours in one single leg.
  • Special automatic transmission system loved by beginners as well as experts.
  • Great fuel consumption
  • Lightweight
