Some consumer goods make promises they can’t keep. Paper towels, in particular—I am never as happy cleaning up spilled fluids as the people in the TV ads. But after riding Kawasaki’s new Ninja 300 on Sonoma county, California’s best roads, I can say this particular consumer product delivers.
We’ll post a full story next week, but for now you can watch the video I made just after the ride. This new model is really a full departure from the 2012 Ninja, and it’s remarkable how improved it is. The 300 will no longer be considered a bike you buy to learn on until you’re ready for a “real” sportbike—it is a real sportbike, and a highly entertaining one at that.
To find out what makes it so good, watch the video below and check back next week.
