Regulars here would remember that we were the very first in the entire country to publish the power figures of the new 2014 Honda CBR300R performance bike. Now, some more technical details of the 2014 Honda CB300R have surfaced on the cyber space.
The new CBR 300R will replace the CBR250R and would be a direct rival to the Ninja 300R and the 390 Duke.
Powering the new Honda CBR300R is a new single cylinder, liquid cooled, fuel injected engine which is based on the 250R’s smaller motor. The new motor displaces 286cc and has a 76 mm bore and a 63 mm stroke. While the bore has remain unchanged, the longer stroke should make the bike an even more accomplished tourer.
The new motorcycle has a max power of 30.4 bhp @ 8,500 rpm and a peak torque of 27 Nm @ 7,250 rpm. Compared to the CBR250’R max power of 26 Bhp and peak torque of 22.9 Nm, the new motorcycle is considerably more potent. Worth a mention here is that while the CBR300R’s peak power is sufficiently less than that of the Ninja 300, max torque of 27 Nm means that the bike is as torque-y. The CBR300R’s motor comes mated to a 6 speed manual unit and also worth mention is that the bike has a kerb weight of 164 kilograms, which is almost 10 kgs lesser than that of the Ninja 300.
From what we understand, the bike continues to sport the same telescopic front forks and rear monoshock unit. The wheels, tyres, brakes and the C-ABS too have been carried over from the CBR250R to the CBR 300R.
The new 2014 Honda CBR300R boasts of a diamond frame with struss structure and is likely to also sport a new swingarm.
Visually, the CBR300R looks more like a baby CBR500R than a bigger CBR250R. The 2014 CBR300R doesn’t sport the 250′s Y-shaped headlight and much like the 500R, comes with a twin headlights setup. Other changes include a considerably different front fairing and a new end can, which is visually similar to that of the CBR500R.
Safely expect the new CBR300R to come to us soon after its Thailand launch. Stay tuned to Motoroids for more updates on the new 2014 Honda CBR300R.
