  • About Honda CB300R

    Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) updated the Honda CB300R for 2022 with a new BS6-compliant motor, along with a few cosmetic tweaks to take on its closest rival, the KTM 390 Duke, as well as the BMW G310R, Bajaj Dominar 400, and TVS Apache RR310 in the Indian market. The refreshed CB300R is offered in two colors - Matte Steel Black, and Pearl Spartan Red, and will be locally produced from its facility in India.

    In terms of styling, nothing substantial changes are addressed for 2022, apart from minor cosmetic tweaks such as a black headlamp bezel, golden-colored upside-down front forks, and a darker radiator cowl. The four-pot radial-mounted calipers with 296mm disc for front brakes and 220mm rear disc brake are controlled by dual-channel ABS which works on Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) for uniform braking, optimum body weight distribution, and minimal rear lift due to sudden braking.

    As far as the mechanicals go, the 2022 Honda CB300R is powered by a BS6-compliant 286cc DOHC 4-valve liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine with PGM-FI technology. It is equipped with Assist & Slipper clutch providing an assist function for clutch operations requiring less load compared to a regular clutch mechanism, while the slipper function reduces shocks caused by sudden engine braking during downshifts. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox.

    Upcoming Models are the Activa 7G, Forza 350, CRF300L and PCX 160

    Honda CB300R Expert Review


    Honda CB300R

    Would you go for the Honda CB300R over other models? That is the big question that has to be answered in this context. Here’s finding out.

    How is the design?

    The Honda CB300R is an exhilarating new motorcycle that takes all of the best features from Honda's acclaimed motorcycles and packs them into a lightweight, easy-to-ride package. The CB300R's engine produces powerful torque and is designed to be responsive and nimble. It also has a comfortable, upright riding position that ensures you have a great time on the road.

    At first glance, it seems as though the only thing that has been altered is the paint job, with the CB now receiving two new colour schemes. However, if you look a bit more closely, you'll notice that the design of the exhaust muffler has been modified somewhat, and that the bike now has a golden coloured USD fork. The LCD display also appears to be fairly similar, except it now also includes an indicator for the gear that the vehicle is currently in. Because this bicycle has such a narrow gear range, it is highly likely that even when you are riding in city traffic, you will find yourself using the top three gears very frequently. This is something that is really beneficial while riding this bicycle.

    As was the case in the past, Honda has positioned the horn switch in the spot where one would ordinarily anticipate finding the indicator button; as a result, this will continue to be a cause of ongoing annoyance. We were disappointed that the previous model did not have a feature that would deactivate the engine when the side stand was down. Thankfully, the new model has this function.

    How is the performance?

    The architecture of the 286 cc, 4 valve, liquid-cooled engine is the same as it was before, but the engine now complies with BS6 standards. The power has increased by 0.6 horsepower, bringing the total to 31.1 horsepower; however, it is now produced at 9,000 revolutions per minute, which is 1,500 revolutions per minute more than before. The Honda CB 300R has a top speed of around 160 kilometers per hour and can reach speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour in less than 7.2 seconds when going from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour.

    The maximum torque output of the bike has remained the same, but it now features a slip-assist clutch in addition to its six-speed gearbox. We have also discovered that the motorcycle emits a somewhat different sound, with a note that is both lower and throatier than before coming out of that enormous exhaust.

    How does the motorbike ride?

    The Honda CB300R is a great entry-level bike that is perfect for commuting or exploring new areas. It has a comfortable seat, lightweight frame, and reliable engine. The bike is easy to control and rides smoothly on the road. Overall, the Honda CB300R is an excellent option for those looking for an affordable bike that can do it all.

    Because of its relatively light clutch and peppy acceleration, the little CB is a ton of fun to drive about the city. The incredibly short gearing means that you can also comfortably ride around at pleasant low speeds in higher ratios, thus it can be both tense and stressful at times. However, it can also be peaceful and relaxing. The city and highway figures were quite near to them other, which is probably another impact of the short gearing. The fuel efficiency is also pretty great, and our values were relatively close to each other.

    This bike's performance is where it really shines, and it well exceeds expectations in that regard. This bike is significantly speedier than many people may anticipate, and the acceleration from 6,000 to 9,000 revolutions per minute is unexpectedly lively. The vehicle is capable of reaching a top speed of approximately150 kilometers per hour, but accelerating is where the majority of the excitement lies. In tests, the CB reached 100 kilometers per hour in less than 6.6 seconds, which is far faster than any other motorcycle that claims to have this sort of power. The weight is the key factor for the Honda's exciting and engaging performance, as well as its incredibly nimble character. It is really 1 kilogram lighter than before, coming in at 146 kilograms; this brings it down to the same weight as a TVS Apache RTR 160 4V.

    To put this into context for you, the most recent iteration of the KTM 250 Duke weighs well over 160 kg, and that's before you add any gasoline. That means that this bike is almost 30 kg lighter, which is an outstanding accomplishment. Honda has done an excellent job with the rider ergonomics, despite the fact that this bike has the appearance of being very compact. The seat height of 801 millimetres will appeal to riders of shorter stature, while taller riders will value the ample seating space and a foot peg position that is athletic without being excruciatingly cramped. A new Showa Separate Function Big Piston upside down fork is included on the international version of the CB, whereas Endurance is responsible for manufacturing the fork that comes standard on the Indian version. Although it doesn't sound nearly as ritzy as that, the suspension on this bike strikes an extremely wonderful mix between comfort and responsiveness, making it an excellent choice for riding long distances. The bike does give the sensation of being firmly damped, but it also handles bumpy roads very well, and the overall set-up felt really good for what this bike is meant to be used for. The narrative is the same when it comes to the tyres; however, this motorcycle is equipped with MRF tyres, whereas the BS4 model has Michelins. But those were Michelin Pilot Streets, which are a fairly ordinary tyre, and the MRFs are almost as excellent, if not better. The MRFs are a much better option.

    How comfortable the motorbike is?

    For those who don't want to spend a fortune on a sport bike, the Honda CB 300R is a solid option. The entry-level model is able to handle most basic tasks, but it's still equipped with modern features to help you have a safer and better experience. The Honda CB300R features many improvements over its predecessors, including a more comfortable riding position and a frame with 41mm forks.The suspension is surprisingly plush for a budget bike. The upside-down forks also help to make the CB less harsh. And, the rear spring preload is adjustable, which is good for heavier riders or those who need to haul luggage. This bike is an excellent all-around performer that is fun to ride.The bike's lightness helps to compensate for the smaller size. The headlamp and indicators are very bright, but they don't overwhelm the smallframe. This is a bike that all riders should try out! The height of the rider may not be perfect for the bike, but the lightweight feel may make it more comfortable for short riders.

    Handling in general is of the light, easy, and fairly neutral variety that is typical of Honda vehicles. It takes corners with assurance, and despite the fact that the bike is so light, its behaviour when traveling at high speeds is reasonably stable and predictable. The brakes are a Nissin setup that is quite similar to the one found on the BS4 model. While the overall performance is satisfactory, the brakes could benefit from having a touch more initial bite. In the same way as before, this motorcycle is equipped with a twin channel ABS system that makes use of an IMU, also known as an inertial measurement unit, for improved performance.

    How’s the tech?

    There isn't a huge amount of tech on the Honda CB300R bike, but what is there is well executed. The bike features a 6-speed transmission and suspension that is adjustable for spring preload and rebound damping. It also has a power delivery that is linear and predictable. The bike also has ABS, which comes in handy during braking.

    The bike is part of Honda's Neo Sports Cafe line of motorcycles. It features dual-channel ABS, adjustable levers, cornering ABS, and adjustable suspension. Despite its lightweight construction, the Honda CB300R packs a powerful punch.The Honda CB300R features an ABS system, which is an important feature for beginner riders. This system helps control the application of brakes and is ideal for wet conditions. The ABS system is also designed to provide ample feedback to the rider and is easy to operate.

    Overall, the Honda CB300R bike is a great option if you're looking for something affordable and easy to ride. Its technology is simple but effective, making it ideal for new riders or those who don't want to spend a lot of money on their motorcycle.

    How’s the mileage of the motorbike?

    It has a fuel tank capacity of 10 liters, and Honda estimates that it will achieve a fuel efficiency of 30 kilometers per litre.

    Is the motorbike good value for Money?

    The Honda CB300R is a great value for money motorcycle. It's affordable, reliable, and features a fuel-efficient engine. The bike also has a comfortable riding position and good handling. If you're looking for a beginner's bike that's versatile and easy to ride, the CB300R is a great option.

    This bike has excellent looks and is perfect for new riders. It is also a great city bike with a smooth, six-speed transmission. Its lightweight design and solid brakes will boost your confidence as you ride it. The suspension is also well-sorted and offers real feedback.

    In addition to being light and comfortable, the CB300R has a slipper-type clutch. This adds insurance to the rear contact patch and provides a light feel on the clutch lever. The six-speed transmission and chain-type final drive allow the CB300R to perform better. In addition, Honda uses low-friction components, which may result in lower fuel costs.The Honda CB300R features a 31.5-inch seat height, which puts the rider in an athletic and engaged riding position. It also features a 41mm inverted fork and a supple spring rate. This bike has a lightweight aluminium frame with an aluminium wheel. The bike is also very responsive thanks to its lightweight aluminium wheels.

    If you're in the market for a bike that is good value for money, the Honda CB300R is a great choice. The basic bike is very affordable and features a parallel-twin engine that is easy to learn. It also has a good amount of torque and is easy to ride. Even if you don't ride it very often, this bike is a great choice for commuters. The CB300R comes with an ABS and an IMU which helps prevent the rear wheel from lifting during hard braking.

    How is the after sales service?

    The Honda CB300R is a great bike for commuting or touring. The after sales service is good. If you have any problems with the bike, the staff will help you fix it.

    Which Motorbikes Compete in this Segment?

    The Honda CB300R will go up against other high-end motorcycles like as the KTM 390 Duke, TVS Apache RR 310, and the BMW G 310R.

    Verdict (Is it Value for Money?)

    You would assume that, now that the CB300R has a significant increase in the amount of locally sourced components, that it would cost at the very least the same amount of money (Rs. 2.41 lakh) as the BS4 model, if not less. Sadly, it appears that Honda has chosen to proceed down the same route of charging excessive prices as they did with the CB500X and the Fireblade. Ex-showroom pricing places it at Rs 2.77 lakh, making it more expensive than both the TVS Apache RR 310 and the BMW G 310 R. However, it is only approximately Rs 10,000 less expensive than both the Royal Enfield Interceptor 650 and the KTM 390 Duke.

    This is a very lovely motorbike, and we expect that many people will find it to be a sweeter machine than its competitors. The pricing may seem a little too high but overall, the bike does prove a point with its superlative handling and performance.
