Kawasaki discount and new colour

Kawasaki Australia is offering a $750 cash back, or discount, on its popular Ninja 300 and has announced the 2017 ZX-10R will come in a spectacular pearl white and titanium colour scheme.

Readers will have noticed the Ninja 300 advertisement on Motorbike Writer has been a $500 discount deal, but it has now increased to $750.

The learner-approved motorcycle sells for $5799 (plus on-road costs), $5999 for the SE models and $6399 for the ABS SE model.

The cash-back offer lasts until the end of October to clear 2016 models ahead of the new 2017 model.

The Ninja 300 has had a stranglehold on the road bike market in Australia since it was introduced in 2012.

Is there any wonder why? This is from our review of the Special Edition ABS last year:

It is a thoroughly refined, agile, forgiving, smooth, attractive and well-built package that will not only suit many learners, but also a wide variety of rider heights and abilities. Even experienced riders might like one as a second bike for commuting and weekend canyon-carving.

The bike is powered by a willing 296cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine with 29kW of power and 27Nm of torque with a six-speed transmission and 3.4L/100km economy providing extended range from the large 17-litre tank.

Meanwhile, Kawasaki Australia marketing assistant Milo Dokmanovic confirms the 2017 Ninja ZX-10R will come in the stunning pearl white and titanium colour scheme.

However, Kawasaki is not yet revealing the release date.

In addition to the new colour, the front fender and colour of the rear spring are different to the 2016 model.
