- Available in Deluxe and Deluxe Pro variants
- To be sold through BigWing dealerships only
- Positioned below the existing CB300R
In a surprising move, Honda launched the new CB300F street bike in India. The motorcycle is positioned below the existing CB300R and comes with a starting price of Rs 2.26 lakh for the Deluxe variant while the Deluxe Pro trim costs Rs 2.29 lakh (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). Just like the CB300R, the CB300F too will be sold through Honda’s premium BigWing dealerships in India.
Powering the CB300F is a new 293cc, oil-cooled, four-valve, SOHC engine that churns out 23.8bhp and 25.6Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a six-speed gearbox along with an assist and slipper clutch. The bike rides on 17-inch alloy wheels that are suspended by upside-down forks up front and a five-step adjustable monoshock at the rear. Meanwhile, braking duties are handled by a single disc at both ends, measuring 276mm up front and 220mm at the rear.
The design of the CB300R is inspired by the bigger CB500F that’s available in the international markets. It gets sharp design lines with a low-slung headlamp, pointed tank extensions with an upswept tail section. As for the list of features, there’s a full-LED lighting setup, a fully-digital instrument cluster, dual-channel ABS, and Honda’s Selectable Torque Control which is essential a traction control system.
