Kawasaki Ninja 300 30th Anniversary Edition from R1 899pm

PERFORMANCE & QUALITY BEYOND ITS CLASS

Whether referring to engine or chassis performance, or the latest available technology, the name “Ninja” implies the very best that Kawasaki has to offer. In the case of the all-new Ninja 300, it means a larger-displacement 296 cm3 engine with the power and torque to eclipse everything in its class, racetracklevel chassis stability, and race-derived clutch technology that offers a supersport-style back-torque limiter and increased ride feel. Reduced vibration and new heat management technology result in high-quality ride feel and comfort level one would expect from a much larger machine. PERFORMANCE & QUALITY BEYOND ITS CLASS

*Model shown with optional seat cover.

With its large-volume bodywork, the Ninja 300 can easily be mistaken for a larger machine – an image reinforced by numerous styling cues from our flagship Ninja models. From its aggressive new dual headlights to its sharp, minimalist tail cowl, every surface of new Ninja was painstakingly sculpted to ensure a high level of fit and finish, impressive silhouette and undeniable Ninja presence.

Designed to outshine all other bikes in its class, the new Ninja 300 delivers increased performance and riding excitement, stunning new styling, and ride quality and comfort that exceed the 250-class.

Kawasaki Z300 from R 1 599pm

WORLD’S FIRST 300cc SUPERNAKED

The Z300, the latest addition to the Z Series line-up, is a stylish entry-level model for Europe, or a larger displacement alternative to the Z250 for Thailand.

Kawasaki Z300 ER300 Metallic Flat Raw Grayston

Its aggressive Supernaked design is inspired by larger models from the popular Z Series, the Z1000 and Z800. Muscular bodywork hints at the bike’s performance, while ensuring that the Z300 stands out from the crowd. And the superb level of fit and finish further separates it from ordinary “naked” models.

Sharing the high-performance engine and chassis of the acclaimed Ninja 300, the Z300 offers the acceleration and handling to dominate the 250cc class. Its powerful 296 cm3 Parallel Twin engine and circuit-developed frame deliver a high level of riding excitement. Coupled with a relaxed, upright riding position and wide handlebar enabling active rider control, urban riding excitement increases exponentially.

In both looks and performance, the Z300 has what it takes to get noticed.

Yamaha YZ250F

Lighter, faster, quicker: the ultimate YZ

For 2015 the latest generation YZ250F comes with a range of detail engine and stylistic changes that make this innovative motocross bike our best ever MX2 weapon!

With its reverse cylinder head and snaking exhaust system, the rearward-slanting, 250cc, 4-valve engine sets the standard for the class. Revised FI and ignition settings give even more mid range power – and a lighter throttle action gives precise feel.

A compact and lightweight aluminium chassis and minimal bodywork deliver agile handling with razor-sharp steering – and new black rims and factory-style graphics give that attention-grabbing ‘pro-racer’ look!

YZ250F

The characteristics any racer wants from a motorcycle are usually the same: faster, lighter and easier. With this Ultimate YZ range Yamaha are forward thinkers. We want to be at the front, just like you, just like them.Yamaha have watched and reacted wherever a knobbly tyre has met off-road terrain in anger and now we have refined our YZ technology to the point where you simply cannot get a better, more usable, more competitive package.Competition lines the soul at Yamaha and the YZ motocrossers are our offering designed to create a thrill and a buzz and then to savour it in the best way possible. Faster, lighter, easier.

Fuel injected engine

Fuel injected engine

The YZ250F benefits from an advanced fuel injection system that delivers excellent power characteristics, instant response and plenty of grunt. It adopts the same functional and integrated design concept as the YZ450F. For stronger mid range power, the 2015 engine features revised settings for the FI and ignition.

Rear-slanted, forward thinking

Rear-slanted, forward thinking

The forward-positioned straight intake ensures excellent efficiency while the rearward slant of the engine is set at the optimum angle with regard to the frame, engine size and mass balance. The full extent of the ECU can be exploited through the optional MX Power Tuner to customise set-up for personal preference and terrain conditions.

Centralisation and weight saving

Centralisation and weight saving

The snaking exhaust design allows the use of a stubby silencer which, in turn, permits the fitment of a short subframe – just one of several factors contributing towards the significant mass centralisation of the motorcycle. The central fuel tank keeps the bodywork slim and the easily accessible air filter features quick-release fasterners.

Compact lightweight chassis

Compact lightweight chassis

The YZ250F is renowned for its potential in turns and benefits from a lightweight, hydro-formed, bilateral beam frame constructed from ten different types of forged, cast and extruded aluminium parts. Achieving precision and control, the chassis blends high levels of rigidity, balance and shock absorbing element for ‘ultimate’ feedback and fun.

Smooth and efficient shifting

Smooth and efficient shifting

The durable clutch and slick shifting transmission ensure that YZ250F riders experience a smoother, surer shifting sensation. This advanced system reduces drive-force losses during gear changes, allowing the rider to optimise the engine performance for reduced lap times.

This bike is built to race hard and its sharp, minimal bodywork gives you optimal freedom of movement during intense competition. The long seat and hidden filler cap allow rapid body weight transfer – and with its new factory style in-mould graphics and black rims, the 2015 YZ250F is ready for action!

Yamaha YZ450F

Lighter, faster, quicker – the ultimate YZ

Faster and more responsive, the 2014 YZ450F is the absolute peak of all our knowledge, experience and immense passion for off-road. This is the ultimate.

The new YZ450F has been overhauled to bring a razor edge to the strongest elements of the bike. The innovative fuel injected rearward-slanting single cylinder engine has been reworked for more usable power while the snaking exhaust pipe is just one of a raft of fresh features to centralise the weight of the motorcycle.

A brand new chassis further compacts the machine. A redesigned sub-frame, refined gear-shift system, a repositioned fuel tank along with slim and sleek plastics make this motorcycle a tractable weapon.

Revised 450cc engine

Revised 450cc engine

The fuel injected, 4-stroke, 4-valve, DOHC, rearward-slanting single cylinder engine now boasts more controllable power. Formidable ECU performance combined with new gear ratios mean plenty of easy-to-use torque with a strong push from third gear up. A reworked gearshift-system reduces drive-force loss and ensures smoother shift operations.

Brand new bilateral beam aluminium frame

Brand new bilateral beam aluminium frame

Increased feedback thanks to a chassis direct from the YZ250F. The new irregular exhaust silencer permits a shorter subframe achieving a more central riding sensation. Suspension improvements with new coil springs coupled with larger 22mm front axle augment the YZ450F’s ability to grip the dirt.

Saving and shaving weight

Saving and shaving weight

The combination of the new frame and design overhaul of other elements on the YZ450F has led to weight reduction and light-weight feel. The use of a wet sump lubrication system removes the need for an oil tank while a rejigged radiator form and shortened subframe are other examples of how the YZ450F has been trimmed and honed.

Centralisation at core

Centralisation at core

The 2014 YZ450F conveys the best sensation yet of mass centralisation and therefore superior usability. Immediately noticeable is the repositioning of the 7.5l fuel tank further inside the motorcycle. The new unit still enables easy access to the air filter for better serviceability. This is YZ450F performance and power in a YZ250F housing.

New looks for new age

New looks for new age

Minimal, economic and sharp lines adhere to a ‘smash movement’ design concept. The look shouts ‘race me’ and is helped by new side panel plastics, air scoop and rear mudguard. Also for the first time ever on a Yamaha motorcycle ‘in-mould’ graphics technology has been applied to the bodywork for a translucent look and a more resistant surface.
