Honda 2Wheelers to reignite the Neo Sports Cafe motorcycle segment with the launch of CB300R. The motorcycle maker has confirmed that the new CB300R BSVI will arrive in 2022. At the Indian Bike Week, the company has already showcased the motorcycle in flesh and body, it looks so fresh. CB300R is the motorcycle that will surely turn heads with its signature style and beauty.

Honda has mentioned that the motorcycle will come with two colour options: Matte Steel Black and Pearl Spartan Red. Honda has not announced the pricing as of yet. And thus, we expect the pricing to be out when the motorcycle will be opened for bookings which are sometime in 2022.

What Do We Know So Far?

Honda will use a 286cc DOHC 4-valve liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine. Furthermore, to enhance the acceleration and linear delivery of power in city rides, Honda will leverage its PGM-FI technology. As for the rider aids, Honda will also provide Assist and Slipper Clutch. The assist function requires less load compared to a regular clutch mechanism. Whereas, the slipper mechanism reduces unpleasant shocks caused by sudden engine braking during aggressive downshifts. These features will help in making the ride much more relaxed and fatigued free. The chassis gets the support of inverted front forks. Honda claims that these will offer utmost precision and also make the motorcycle useful in city traffic conditions.

Braking power comes from the 4-pot radial-mounted callipers with 296 mm hub-less floating disc for front brakes and 220 mm disc at the rear. Enhancing the safety standards is the dual-channel ABS which works on the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for uniform front to rear ABS braking. This will also ensure optimum body weight distribution and minimal rear lift due to sudden braking. The instrument panel will provide all the necessary riding statistics and advanced informatics. Honda has added a few additional features like gear position and side stand indicator with engine inhibitor. The fully digitalized meter will aid the rider to read all the information quickly both at night and day.
