2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 / Ninja 300R Rumor for 2013.

#1 Unread post by totalmotorcycle »

@Kawasaki "#Ninja® Times Square Takeover" Sets A Global Stage For Reveal Of Newest #Motorcycles
Debut of 2013 sportbikes to highlight daylong celebration of motorcycling activities along Broadway from 45th to 47th Street.



Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. is going big with its global debut of its 2013 line of iconic Ninja® motorcycles in New York's Times Square, Sept. 13. The company will stream a live feed of the reveal of their latest motorcycles during the "Ninja Times Square Takeover" from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Kawasaki is planning a two-block display of motorcycles and a celebration that stretches along Broadway from West 45th to West 47th Street. Highlighting the celebration will be music, giveaways, special celebrity guests and the legendary Kawasaki motorcycles that have helped pioneer the modern sportbike since the introduction of the original Ninja more than 25 years ago.

According to Kawasaki's marketing director, Chris Brull, the new models will be joined by a selection of significant, older models. They will include the original 1984 Ninja as well as the legendary 1973 Z1, hailed as the world's first "superbike" and the motorcycle that set the stage for an entirely new segment over the next few decades.

He said part of the day's closing presentation will include the give-away of two new Ninja motorcycles.

Among the scheduled activities—many of which will be shown on a huge screen above the street—are various staged presentations, unique stunt riding exhibitions by former SPEED TV host, Jason Britton, motorcycle drag race instruction from multi-time national champion, Rickey Gadson, and a collection of free activities for individuals and families.

Kawasaki will also park the Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing transporter on Broadway and Ryan Villopoto, the most decorated professional racer of the past few years will be there to sign posters for onlookers. Prior to suffering an injury early this season, he had captured several championships in 2011, including two of the most prestigious on the racing circuit, the FIM World Supercross Championship, and the AMA Motocross Championship.

Brull said this unique model introduction "brings the brand's core authenticity to a broader audience that will be able to interact with our people, our products and the sport that appeals to more men and women each year."

The marketing director said the concept of the "Ninja Times Square Takeover" grew from internal discussions seeking different ways to bring the company's "Let the good times roll™" philosophy to a broader audience.

"Times Square is recognized as the 'crossroads of the world,' and we're thrilled to be able to share our brand of motorcycle enthusiasm with such a large, diverse group of New York residents and visitors," said Brull.

Kawasaki Motors Corp., U.S.A. (KMC) markets and distributes Kawasaki motorcycles, ATVs, Side x Sides, and personal watercraft through a network of more than 1,200 independent retailers, with an additional 7,400 retailers specializing in Kawasaki power products and general purpose engines. KMC and its affiliates employ nearly 3,100 people in the United States, with 300 of them located at KMC's Irvine, California headquarters.

Kawasaki's tagline, "Let the good times roll.™", is recognized worldwide. For five decades, the Kawasaki brand has become synonymous with powerful, stylish and category-leading vehicles.

I've been hearing all kinds of buzz regarding their small bike this year. No one is really sure if they're bringing back a redesigned 250 (and whether or not it's going FI), or if they're bringing the Ninja 300 and/or 400 to the US.

Well, the Ninja 400 hasn't really be as successful as Kawasaki would have liked for it to be in Canada (could be that the price of the 400 is too close to the 650R). The 250 is still the top small bike choice for them worldwide. Kawasaki used to have a GPz305 back in the day (I seriously considered it at the time for my first bike) it even offered BELT DRIVE (imagine, a belt drive on a Kawasaki!)

Word has it that there is a new Ninja 300 that will fill the void left 30 years ago by the 305 :laughing:

Seriously though, a new Ninja 300 based on a punched out 250 is on its way....

Well if that's true, I think Kawasaki is making a serious marketing mistake (IMO) by making the 250 into a 300. There is a strong reason (insurance wise and L permits around the globe) that depend on a 250cc bike or less (and 33hp or less too). I'm sure the 300 is just rumor though as there is nothing from Kawasaki officially as of yet (all this info is from a EPA document filed by Kawasaki* and some rumor site spreading it's 39hp). Then what would they do with a 300 and a 400 ninja? Seriously.

* http://www.epa.gov/otaq/cert/documents/ ... c-ctrr.xls

You will notice that either the 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 rumor is just that as there is no listing for a bike like that in the cited document above (there is a listing for a Ninja 1000 in there) or it's based on some other document/source or they mistook a Ninja 1000 for a Ninja 300?

Time will tell if it is true, however it's not a mistake if they keep the 250 around for insurance or legal limiting markets. For markets where it makes virtually no difference such as Canada a 300 that costs virtually the same as a 250 to produce would be a great option especially when compared to a 400 that costs virtually the same as a 650 to produce (and weighs virtually the same as well). For this reason, if it is true I think that they will have a hit on their hands.

I've moved this topic into our Motorcycle Rumor Mill as it is generating quite a bit of interest and renamed it to "2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 / Ninja 300R Rumor for 2013." And congratulations, this topic has hit our main page as well:

2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300 / Ninja 300R Rumor for 2013 - Fact or?

Is this the face of the rumored new 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300R? It seems the Total Motorcycle rumor forum is flying with information, facts and guesses whether there is or is not a new 2013 Kawaski Ninja 300 coming out. Would you like to see Kawasaki produce a new Ninja 300R or replace the Ninja 250R? What about the Ninja 400 or wordwide big seller the Ninja 250? Read and join in on the discussion: 2013 Kawasaki Ninja 300R, fact or fiction. viewtopic.php?f=12&t=45701
BTW - 2013 Kawaski Ninja 300R? No, but can you guess what it is?

I have to agree with High_Side here - if they can replace the 250 with a 300 in markets where it really doesn't matter the size of the engine for a "starter" bike (such as Canada & US), then why not? The 250 does not draw as many buyers as it could in these markets and maybe offering a 300 would help ramp up sales. Then they get rid of the 400 and people can choose between 300 & 650. That makes a lot more sense to me.

I looked at my Slovenian driver's licence and see three classes of motorcycle licence: 1st year of riding is restricted to 125 c.c.; 2nd year, to 250 c.c.; after that, unrestricted. My guess is that most European countries have a similar system. I also guess that there won't be much of a market here for anything between 250 and 650.

It was very simular to the same situation in the UK. The 125cc bikes did really well, but then, very few wanted the 250cc bikes as they could go unrestricted.
A1 class (17 years old)- Light motorcycles with a cubic capacity not exceeding 125 cc and of a power output not exceeding 11 kW (14.6 bhp).
A class restricted (17-21) - Motorcycles up to 25 kW (33 bhp) and a power to mass ratio not exceeding 0.16 kW/kg. Motorcycle combination with a power mass ratio not exceeding 0.16 kW/kg.
A class - 21+ (generally) - unrestricted.
So bumping the 250cc by 50cc isn't going to do much in the UK market either.

Back when we had a VTR250 in the garage I loved riding the thing around town but often thought about how much fun it would have been with a bigger engine. At the time I thought that a 400cc mill would have made for an awesome bike. I still think that the market would be pretty strong for a bike that is 300cc that costs close the what the 250 did. This seems highly likely if all they end up doing is putting a couple of bigger jugs on an existing design.

On a somewhat related topic I heard what I thought was a Ducati coming from the distance last night as we were out for a walk. The bike: a CBR250 with an aftermarket can. :oops: Sounded damned good for a 250 though...

I think if they base the 300 on the 250 frame/weight, it will replace the 400R...the whole problem with the 400 is the weight is much too close to the weight of the 650R...same deal with the Suzuki GSX650F & the GSX1250FA, if the 650 was closer to the weight of the SV650 it would be a hit, but is isn't...

Just my two cents...

Later.

I will be putting up all the new 2013 Kawasaki's today. You can watch me live here: http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/motorcyc ... wasaki.htm

Wrider - Can't say for sure yet, when the Kawi's came out last night I checked the US media site and no 2013's there yet, they might be waiting for later today, tomorrow or even on the Times Square Launch in the middle of the month. I'll put up everything I can get my hands on though. :D

I still "don't get" the Ninja 300 myself, it's not like a beginner would miss the extra 50cc in power and what's wrong with a 250cc? But it's nice to have a choice in the 300cc range, no one else has one, but I fear we are losing the beginner bikes (250cc and under). It would have been nice to see the new ninja be called the "Ninja 305" or even "GPz305", would have tied in some heritage there.

I agree, but based off of my experience, it's almost hard to get someone to buy the 250 in the US because there's a stigma attached to it being a "small bike". Personally if the suspension could handle me I'd love to pick one up for commuting and tight twisty carving.

I like that the 300R is coming out with FI though. IMO that's the only thing the current 250 is missing.

The "small bike" syndrome isn't just the USA, it's Canada as well unfortunately. It seems the manufacturers are just not offering much below the 650cc anymore, and I would guess it's somewhat profit related due to engine size as well. But IMO, it is a real shame for new riders as the small bikes are just so much fun, light and manuverable; it's a whole different world of riding and the Ninja 250/300 will offer that in spades, but there should be more small bike. I think the US is missing out on a great UJM market taken place in Europe. There are so many great UJM's over there I wish they could be over here too.

Good to see the Ninja 300 is coming with fuel injection, it's about time! But what is Kawasaki doing with the Ninja 400 I wonder...

I just wish they would create a small engined bike with decent suspension. I'd love to be on a small (500 or under) bike with suspension that could hold up to me (I know I'm a big guy, but in general). I'd rock that and save so much on gas/tires/chains, it'd be worth it!
