The Honda CB300R is based on the CBR300R but the styling is based on the current CB100R, which means a neo-retro café-racer type look that is quite fetching. It has a 286cc single cylinder liquid-cooled engine that generates 30bhp and 27.5Nm. All LED lighting and CBS with ABS are some of the features that the CB300R has. The fuel tank holds 10 litres, and the kerb weight is a low 143kg. The brakes are radially mounted 4-piston calliper in the front and a floating calliper at the back. Tyre sizes are familiar ones: a 110mm wide front and 150mm wide rear. The suspension is quite conventional, and has only preload adjustment for the rear.
The CB300R will be available in either grey or red. It will compete with the likes of the KTM 390 and 250 Dukes, and the Kawasaki Z250. The price will be under Rs 2.5 lakhs, despite it being a CKD product.
