The Honda CBR300R price and arrival dates have been announced in the UK. The new Honda CBR300R, with ABS fitted as standard, will come with a price tag of £4,299.
According to a report on VisorDown, customers in the UK will be able to order the new Honda CBR300R from the 4th of this August. The deliveries of the bike will commence from the end of the same month.
Going by the latest exchange rates, the £4,299 price tag will translate into a very hefty 4.44 lakhs in the Indian rupee. However, we don’t expect such a steep price for the Honda CBR300R in India.Pricing of a motorcycle in any market is dependent on a multitude of factors like excise duties, taxes, localisation of the products and the sales target that the company has set for the product.
Infact, there hasn’t been any concrete word from Honda about the Indian launch of the new CBR300R. The CBR300R uses the exactly similar single-cylinder powerplant found on its 250-cc sibling. The only difference lies in its longer stroke, thereby increasing the displacement to 286 cc. The power output is raised to 30.4 hp. Even though this appears laggard in comparison to the Ninja 300, the broad low-end torque available from the single-cylinder unit of the CBR300R makes it more streetable.
Visually, the CBR300R stays true to the CBR lineage, boasting of twin-headlamps and a sharp nose. In contrast, the CBR250R posesses a Y-Shaped headlamp reminiscent of the VFR1200F sports tourer motorcycle from Honda. The rest of the bike is quite similar to the 250cc sibling. The seating position appears comfortable, and the handlebars should provide no problem to the arms and wrists.
Affordability is one of the cornerstones of the Honda CBR300R. The Honda CBR300R price is £900 less than the Kawasaki Ninja 300.
The new CBR300R comes in three colour options in the UK :
- Milennium Red
- Metallic Black
- HRC Paint Scheme
