Styling and Equipment
Drawing design inspiration from the iconic retro-themed CB1000R litre-class roadster, 2023 CB300R is Honda’s ultra-modern minimalistic take on the timeless roadster design. It boasts a muscular fuel tank and a beefy upswept exhaust that is based on neo sports cafe DNA. The styling quotient is further enhanced by an all-LED lighting system (round LED headlamp, LED winkers and LED tail lamp).
Tipping the scales at just 146kg, CB300R is the lightest motorcycle in its category with the promise of an agile handling. Complimenting this are 41mm USD front forks and an adjustable mono-shock absorber at the rear which makes it perfect for Indian roads. Braking duties are handled by 296mm disc brake (front) and 220mm disc (rear) with dual-channel ABS as standard. There is also a fully digital instrument cluster, and it now gets emergency stop signal and hazard light switch as well.
Engine and Performance
At the heart of the new Honda CB300R lies a powerful 286.01cc, 4 stroke, single-cylinder BSVI OBD2A compliant PGM-FI engine which is now more environment friendly than before. This motor churns out 22.9 kW power and 27.5 Nm of torque. Glide through street corners with ease as the CB300R comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It also gets an assist slipper clutch which eases gearshifts and manages rear wheel lock-up on hard down shifts while deceleration, thereby enhancing rider’s safety.
