Kawasaki’s J300 scooter is billed as being a sportier offering, providing the rider with a more dynamic machine which combines practicality with fun.
The engine displaces 299cc and puts out 28 bhp.
While this power output would have been unimaginable even just a few years ago, the torque number is the most impressive.
Producing over 28 Nm guarantees a commuter that will get off the line briskly when the lights turn green.
Stopping at those aforementioned lights is compliments of a single disk up the front and the same at the rear.
The rear light is a lightweight and bright LED affair.
Both of the brake levers are fully adjustable allowing the rider to tailor the span to the size of their hands.
Adding a wet weight of only 191 kilos as well as a tight turning circle makes for an easy machine on which to cut through city traffic
The 775 mm seat height may sound a little low, but the leg room in the clever, concave foot well manages to make it a comfortable steed on which to to ride for the taller amongst us.
It also makes it unintimidating for more normally heighted people!
The clocks are exactly that, clocks.
A traditional speedo and tacho are complimented by an LCD display showing all the metrics a rider might need.
These include a fuel gauge, a clock, trip metres, an odometer, an engine warning light as well as a service light.
As is standard with all modern scooters there is under seat storage. The load capacity is a generous 10 kilos and it has been designed to take a bag and a full face helmet.
There’s also a glove box within which there is a power socket. This can be used to charge a phone.
The J300, along with the rest of the Kawasaki range, is available for €6,150 from BikeWorld in Dublin.
