The Honda CB300R is a member of the bike maker\'s Neo-Sports Café family. The bike is powered by a 300 cc single-cylinder liquid cooled engine and will take on the likes of the KTM Duke 250.
The CB300R is the scaled down version of CB100R. It is a muscular looking motorcycle which has a touch of retro accents in its design, what with its round headlamp and brushed metal-tone rim. However, it is equally modern with the Upside Down Forks, a neat LCD display for instrumentation and IMU based ABS. It has a nice and sharp tail section. The dual chamber exhaust sweeps up at the rear, with contrasting black and chrome finish adding a flare of aggressiveness to this good looking motorcycle.
While the bike is designed on the retro concept, Honda has bestowed it with all sorts of modern tech.

The dual-channel ABS brakes are equipped with Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for proper distribution of braking power.

Both discs are regulated with ABS, ensuring optimum braking in less-than-ideal conditions. Honda has linked the brakes with an Inertial Measurement Unit which does all the maths for you while you apply brakes, ensuring efficient braking while helping to maintain stability.
