The sub-500cc segment of the Indian market recently witnessed the arrival of the BMW G 310 R and the G 310 GS. In recent updates, the segment may witness arrival of a new product. If reports are to be believed, Honda may soon introduce the CB300R in Indian market as the Japanese two-wheeler brand has patented the motorcycle in the country.
The motorcycle is built around a new frame which mixes pressed and tubular steel for a tuned balance and feedback. It features Honda’s neo-retro design which is also seen on the new CB1000R. The feature list includes LCD instrument display, full LED lighting, 41mm USD front forks, radially-mounted 4-piston caliper, hubless floating front disc, IMU-based 2-channel ABS and Dunlop radial tyres.
Mechanical specifications include a 286cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected single cylinder engine which cranks out 30.9 bhp @ 8,500rpm, with peak torque of 27.5Nm delivered @ 7,500rpm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The motorcycle is claimed to return 30.2 kms to a litre which, with its 10-litre tank, gives a range of 300km.
