Ninja 300 Overtaking Performance


Not my video. But good video for people who are new and concerned about power.

Def not as good as a 600cc or a 1.0l but its quick enough to be confident (at least for me) Guy is going 100kilometers/hr when passing.

niiinnjaaaaaaaa

In the video he was complaing that it was slow at full throttle in highest gear..

Wouldnt it be faster if you drop down a couple gears and do the same thing haha!

That makes the video pointless, dont call it "overtaking performance" and then refuse to shift gears and then complain that its not that good.

A video called overtaking performance should be cruising alogn a speed, drop down sever gears, pin it, fly plast slow moving object, drop back to cruising gear/speed..

Just my 2 cents

I commute on the freeway daily and I can easily pass a car in top gear by just twisting the throttle, no downshift needed. The bike climbs to 90mph with no problem. If that's not good enough, there's something wrong with you.

Sure, bigger bikes are faster, but the 300 leaves nothing to 'complain' about.
