2018 Honda CB300R, part of Honda’s new ‘sport naked’ family is set to launch soon. The CB300R has many of the premium features found on its larger capacity siblings and injects a fresh new style in the segment with its ‘Neo Sports Café’ minimalist, bare-boned attitude which it shares with its 1000cc and 125cc stablemates. Given the fact that CBR 250 is missing in Honda’s India portfolio right now and a BS-IV compliant model is said to be re-introduced, the CB300R could also join in as the demand for entry-level premium motorcycles has been on the rise.
Honda CB300R is powered by a free-revving 286cc, DOHC, liquid-cooled, single cylinder engine which cranks out 30.9 bhp @ 8,500rpm, with peak torque of 27.5Nm delivered @ 7,500rpm. Mated to a 6-speed gearbox which offers an even spread of gears for strong acceleration – the CB300R will cover 0-200m in 9.2s. Bore and stroke is set at 76 x 63mm, with a compression ratio of 10.7:1. A PGM-FI fuel injection – with 38mm throttle bore and straight-shot intake path – delivers crisp throttle response across the rev range. The bike is expected to launch in late 2018 or early 2019, though there is no news on India launch.
