Honda CB300R revealed at EICMA 2017, the naked bike is essentially a smaller sibling to the recently revealed CB1000R. The new Honda CB300R resembles the retro-inspired design of the new super-naked but is scaled down to 286cc.
If you're thinking that Honda is bringing a bigger version of the parallel-twin CB250RR, then you need to know that the CB300R employs the single-cylinder engine from the current CBR300R.
The new Honda CB300R is powered by a 286cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine producing 31bhp @ 8,500rpm and 27.5Nm of torque @ 7,500rpm married to a 6-speed gearbox.
The Honda CB300R has got a new tubular steel frame, steel-plate swingarm, 41mm upside-down front fork, pre-load adjustable mono-shock at the rear and four-piston brake caliper biting a 296mm front disc. At the rear is a single-piston caliper on a 220mm disc and the bike comes with ABS as standard fitment.
Two-channel ABS is standard on the Honda CB300R and the bike is shod with110/70R-17 and 150/60R-17 radial tires, front and rear, respectively.
The new CB300R bike was unveiled ahead of EICMA 2017 along with the CB1000R and CB125R, creating a whole new family of retro-inspired Honda nakeds.
The market for naked motorcycles in India is on the rise, and Honda should consider the new CB300R among its product lineup in the country. The Honda CB300R is stylish and offers excellent power ratio to ride in Indian road conditions.
