Honda is planning to relaunch the CB300R back in the Indian market. The Honda CB300R neo-sports cafe motorcycle made its debut in the Indian market in 2019 at the INR 2.41 lakhs ex-showroom price. Later, Honda increased the price of the CB300R by INR 8,000, taking the ex-showroom price to INR 2.49 lakh. But the brand did not upgrade the Honda CB300R to BS6 standards. Due to this, the neo-sports cafe was dropped from the portfolio when the BS6 emission standards rolled out in 2020.
Honda CB300R Rumours
Now media reports suggest that the Japanese manufacturer plans to bring the CB300R back to India. Furthermore, the brand has even dispatched around eight motorcycle units in the BS6/Euro5 guise to showrooms across the country. More units are also likely to roll out in the near future. Speculation is that the new BS6 compliant motorcycle will only come with upgrades to the engine. Cosmetically the Honda CB300R is likely to remain the same. The brand may add a new colour theme to the motorcycle as a 2021 upgrade, but the information is still scarce.
Honda CB300R Engine Specifications
Powering the BS4 Honda CB300R was a 286cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine. The liquid-cooled and fuel-injected motor produced 30.4 PS of power and 27.5 Nm of torque.
