Honda CB300R


Adding to the long list of neo-retro bikes coming to India is the recently unveiled Honda CB300R. With the BS6 norms kicking in, Honda phased out the bike in 2020 but have now re-introduced it in our market. Now the 286-cc single-cylinder liquid-cooled motor is BS6-compliant and produces 31.1 hp at 9,000 rpm and 27.5 Nm at 7,500rpm. This is a marginal hike compared to the BS4 version that made 30.4 hp and 27.4 Nm. Also, now the bike sports a slip and assist clutch as standard. There are some cosmetic changes, too, such as differentl­y coloured bodypanels, though there are no other visible changes to the cycle parts. As before, it gets an all-digital console, though we hope it now comes with Bluetooth connectivi­ty. The 2022 model will have more localisati­on than before meaning a lower price compared to the older bike which retailed at Rs 2.5 lakh (exshowroom).
