New Honda CB300R – Image Gallery And First Look Video


Launched at a price of INR 2.41 lakh (Pan India, Ex-showroom), the Honda CB300R has announced the bike maker’s return to the premium entry-level motorcycling space in India. A scaled-down CB1000R, the CB300R flaunts Honda’s Neo Sports Cafe design – an amalgamation of everything current with a bit of yesterday. Powered by a 286 cc, liquid cooled, fuel-injected engine, the motor cranks out 30.9 bhp @ 8,000rpm and 27.4Nm @ 6,500rpm. Tipping the scales at 147 kilos (wet), those figures allow this Honda to boast of the best torque-to-weight ratio in its segment. Below is a first look and walk around video of the new motorcycle, followed by some images from the launch event.
