Vehicle Overview Honda CB300R was recently unveiled ahead of EICMA 2017. Carrying an all new design that's highly inspired from the liter class street fighter, CB3000R follows a league of its own and rivals almost every quarter liter motorcycle around its segment. Powered by a 286cc, single cylinder engine, the motorcycle is good for 31 BHP at 8500 rpm and 27.5 Nm at 7500 rpm. This makes it more powerful than a standard 250cc machine, all thanks to its additional displacement of 36cc. This not just improves power but even keeps efficiency under check all the time. It comes with standard dual channel ABS and carries USD forks for improved riding experience.

Honda CB300R Review

16 May, 2018 08:21 AM

Overview

Honda CB300R is an impressively designed motorcycle that shares its engine with popular CBR300R. It is on sale in limited markets and India is highly awaiting this model for its liter class inspired design language and powerful motor. If Honda plans to launch CB300R in India, the next update will automatically be CBR300R due to intensive part sharing between both of them. CB300R comes with a round front headlight with LED high and low beam support and daytime running lights. The design remains almost identical to Honda CB1000R as one can spot similar fuel tank seating and component placement.

Honda CB300R is powered by a 286cc, single cylinder engine producing 31 BHP at 8500 rpm and 27.5 Nm at 7500 rpm. This makes the motorcycle good for enough power in the usable range and thus, street riding would feel like a blessing with this machine. Seat height of 799 mm is pretty decent for a motorcycle of this class as just 143 kg of wet weight means easy handling and impressive mileage during city rides. Honda offers 41mm USD forks, sporty rear monoshock, dual channel ABS, 296mm Nissin front and 220mm rear disc brake with CB300R.

It was first seen around EICMA 2017 and entered production in few weeks for several markets. CB300R comes with digital instrument console, 110/70 front tyre, and 150/60 rear tyre. Lightweight body and components help CB300R claim an impressive power to weight ratio among other bikes of its segment. This next generation design language of CB300R was inspired by Honda’s Neo Sports cafe concept. If launched in India, it will be priced at around INR 2 lakh. The rival list starts with KTM Duke 250 and moved ahead with upcoming BMW G310R and KTM 390 Duke. It is actually 18 kg lighter than others on average.
