Honda has unveiled the updated CB300R, an entry-level premium street bike. The 2024 CB300R is a minor update over the previous model for the new model year. The most notable changes include new styling, a revised engine, and two new colour options.
The Japanese brand Honda has decided to keep the 2024 model of its CB300R as a colour change year. The motorcycle will be available in two new colours: Matte Black Metallic and Pearl Dusk Yellow. Both colours will be available in the United States.
The new CB300R gets a sharper, more aggressive look thanks to a new headlight, taillight, and bodywork. The engine has also been revised to produce slightly more power and torque.
The Honda CB300R is powered by a 286cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that is compliant with the latest emission norms. The engine is paired with a 6-speed transmission, and it produces 31 horsepower and 27 Nm of torque.
The CB300R has a well-balanced chassis that is made up of a steel frame and upside-down front forks. The rear suspension is a mono-shock, and the bike has petal-type disc brakes on both wheels. The tires are from Dunlop, and they measure 150/60-R17 at the rear and 110/70-R17 at the front.
The CB300R also has several features that make it a good choice for riders looking for a sporty and comfortable ride. These features include LED lighting, a digital instrument cluster, dual-channel ABS, and an assist and slipper clutch.
The 2024 Honda CB300R is expected to be launched in India later this year with a marginal price increase. The current prices for the Pearl Spartan Red and Matte Steel Black models of the Honda CB300R are Rs 2,77,000 (ex-showroom Delhi).
The 2024 CB300R is expected to be priced between Rs 2.85 lakh and Rs 2.95 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). This is a marginal increase over the current prices, but it is still a competitive price for a motorcycle in this segment.
