Honda CB300R is a street bike available at a starting price of Rs. 2,77,042 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 2 colours. The Honda CB300R is powered by 286cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 31.1 bhp and a torque of 27.5 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Honda CB300R comes up with anti-locking braking system. This CB300R bike weighs 146 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 9.7 liters.
The Honda CB300R is based on the CBR300R but the styling is based on the current CB1000R, which means a neo-retro café-racer type look that is quite fetching. The BS4 286cc single cylinder liquid-cooled engine generated 30bhp and 27.5Nm of peak power. But expect the BS6 variant to churn out less power.
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 with inverted forks in the front, and has only preload adjustment for the rear.
The CB300R used to be available in either black or red. It competes with the likes of the KTM 390 Duke, BME G310R and further up the price ladder, the Kawasaki Z250. The price was Rs 2.4 lakhs ex-showroom India, despite it being a CKD product. But Honda to increase the price by a few thousand rupees.
