Engine & Transmission

Powering the neo-sports cafe motorcycle is the liquid-cooled, single-cylinder 286cc engine. This engine produces a maximum power of 30.7bhp at 9000rpm and a peak torque of 27.5Nm at 7500rpm; paired to a six-speed gearbox with a slip and assist clutch, which was a much-needed upgrade on the new motorcycle.

Suspension, Brakes & Frame

The rest of the mechanicals, design and features remains the same on the BS6 motorcycle. The CB300R continues to use a diamond-type frame for maximum rigidity and balance.

Suspension duties on the motorcycle are handled by a 41mm Up-Side Down (USD) fork at the front and a seven-step adjustable mono-shock at the rear. This gives the motorcycle a ground clearance of 157mm with a rider seat height of 801mm.

Braking on the motorcycle is done via a 269mm single disc up-front and a 220mm unit at the rear supported by a dual-channel ABS along with an IMU sensor. This allows for uniform front to rear ABS braking, optimum body weight distribution and minimal rear lift due to sudden braking.

Wheels & Tyres

Speaking of sliding, the CB300R features 17-inch alloy wheels at both ends shod with a 110/70 section tyre at the front and a 150/60 section tyre at the rear.

Design & Features

As mentioned earlier, the design of the new CB300R remains the same as its BS4 counterpart. It continues to dawn the neo-sports cafe look along with round-shaped LED headlamps. Other designs & features include:

  • A 9.7-litre fuel tank
  • Up-right rider ergonomics
  • Split seats
  • LED taillamps
  • LED turn-signal indicators

The motorcycle also features a full LCD multi-function instrument console, which offers a ton of information to the rider include a gear-position indicator, multiple trip meters, side stand cut off and more.

Ltd. said, "Further reinstating our customers' trust & Honda's commitment towards them, the 2022 CB300R is finally here. Since its introduction, it has held high standards of engineering.

Mr Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Director - Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, "Wait is finally over for the CB300R in its new 2022 avatar. A fun ride on city streets and lightest in its class, the new CB300R comes with Assist & Slipper clutch which reduces fatigue and Golden Upside Down Forks which offer to ride precision and enhanced sporty appeal. Overwhelmed by customers' response received on its unveiling at India Bike Week in December'21, we are thrilled to announce the bookings open today onwards."
