The Japanese manufacturer Honda clarifies its plans for CB300R in India
Honda revealed 3 new models from its CB range at pre-EICMA event last year. The CB300R was one of models and has been patented in India. However that doesn’t confirms the launch in India, while the CB300R will be a perfect fit for sub 500cc naked sports bike segment.
The bike gets the neo-retro styling inspired from the CB1000R. Also it features a steel plate swing arm, a tubular steel frame, upside down front suspension and a pre-load adjustable mono-shock unit at rear. The bike features a dual channel ABS setup for braking. Along with ABS, it gets an inertial measurement unit that is usually seen on higher-spec machines. The inertial measurement unit provides precise brake force distribution for the ABS depending on the bike’s behaviour.
Honda CB300R is powered by a 286cc, single cylinder engine that produces 31 horses of power and 27.5 Newtons of peak torque. The bike is meant for those who are looking forward to the styling of CB1000R with the affordability and ease of a 300cc motorcycle.
The CB300R will compete with KTM Duke 390, Benelli TNT 300 and BMW G 310R, if it comes to the Indian bike market.
