The bike is equipped with disc brakes at both ends. The company has also not updated the instrument cluster of the bike and it has the same LCD instrument cluster as before, in which there is no Bluetooth connectivity feature. In India, the BS6 Honda CB300R will take on the KTM 390 Duke, BMW G310R, and Bajaj Dominar 400. The updated model of the bike is expected to launch with an ex-showroom price tag of around Rs 2.40 lakhs.
