UPDATE: The Honda CB300R has been launched in the country at Rs 2.41 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India).

  • The CB300R will be brought to India via the CKD route.
  • Honda has confirmed that it’ll cost under Rs 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
  • Bookings are already open at 22 Honda Wing World dealerships across the country for Rs 5000.
  • Comes in two colour options: red and black.

Honda India will be launching its smallest CKD motorcycle, the CB300R, tomorrow. Despite the CKD route, the brand has confirmed that it will price the bike quite aggressively - under Rs 2.5 lakh (ex-showroom), to be precise. We believe around Rs 2.3 lakh-2.45 lakh would be a more accurate ballpark. Bookings are already open exclusively at 22 Wing World dealerships across the country for a token amount of Rs 5000.

It’s a long time coming for Honda India as the brand didn’t have any small-capacity premium performance motorcycle after the CBR250R for quite some time. Once launched, the CB300R will compete against the KTM 390 Duke and BMW G 310 R. However, in terms of pricing, the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 is also an alternative. The CB300R follows Honda’s “Neo Sports Cafe” design language and essentially looks like a scaled-down version of the CB1000R in which the new design language debuted. Notable features include a fully digital instrument cluster, all-LED lighting system and an IMU-based dual-channel ABS.

The motorcycle draws power from a CBR300R-derived 286cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled DOHC engine. It produces 31.4PS at 8500rpm and 27.5Nm at 7500rpm, working alongside a 6-speed transmission actuated by hydraulic clutch. Suspension bits include inverted forks and a rear Pro-Link monoshock. Braking is courtesy 296mm front petal disc with Nissin radial caliper and a 220mm petal disc at the rear. The motorcycle’s specs are the same as the one sold in international markets. However, instead of Dunlop radials, the India-spec bike rolls on Michelin Pilot Sport radial tyres as per the latest spy shots. Stay tuned to ZigWheels.com for launch updates!
