Seven am, IOI City, Putrajaya was the venue for the Kawasaki J300 Media Test , 10 brand new J300 was waiting for local journalist to have a ride on Kawasaki’s 1st Maxi scooter. Kawasaki Malaysia held the J300 Media Test over 3 days split between 6 sessions.
Registration started before daylight and greeted by a bunch of mozzies till the product presentation about 8am, and safty briefing on the 140km route along the costal lines of Sepang to Telok Panglima Garang.
Kawasaki J300 stand out from the crowd. The J300’s sharp, aggressive design adopts styling elements from our Kawasaki Ninja super sport motorcycles, ensuring a strong Kawasaki family resemblance.
The new Kawasaki J300 uses a 299 cc liquid-cooled SOHC 4-valve Single cylinder engine that provides plenty of power to cope with all kinds of riding situations.
There are many features that set the J300 apart from other scooters available today, such as the adjustable brake levers to the fold out pillion foot pegs derived from the motorcycles. A great deal of thought has gone in to this new scooter from Kawasaki’s engineers. The sporting Ninja characteristics include the sculpted floor boards to not only allow maximum bank or lean angles but also to allow the riders legs to go straight down rather than be spread apart when stationary. The twin trade mark Kawasaki petal disc brakes ensure that there is also plenty of stopping power.
As well as the sporting aspects of the Kawasaki J300 it also boasts all of the practical features that today’s super scooter owners have come to expect, such as the ergonomically contoured seat. The thickly padded seat offers excellent comfort and good rider support. There is storage under the seat for a full-face helmet and a sealed glove box for storage of a mobile phone or anything else the modern commuter might need, as well as a hook in front of the rider for your takeaway.
The new J300 is available with ABS and in White models it is also available in a colour scheme of Green/Black that mimics its Ninja brothers.
Kawasaki have done it again………..
