Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has officially started rolling out the CB300R with customers from Jaipur, Delhi, Gurugram, and Chandigarh being the first to receive the motorcycle. Other cities are all set to be added soon. The 2019 Honda CB300R has been brought to India via the completely knocked down (CKD) route and has an ex-showroom price of INR2.41 lakh (Delhi). The bike is being sold through the 22 Honda Wing World dealerships across the country.
The new Honda CB300R, arguably, is one of the best looking vehicles in its class. The Japanese automobile behemoth is offering 16 accessories for the bike. Buyers can opt for individual items or the four complete kits i.e. Sports, Standard, Protection, or Premium.
Speaking at the commencement of deliveries of the CB300R, HMSI senior vice-president (sales and marketing) Yadvinder Singh Guleria, said that enthusiasts of middleweight motorcycling in India have welcomed the CB300R which is inspired by the company’s Neo Sports Cafe design. The response has been overwhelming since the bike’s launch in February. Honda, he informed, has revised its production capacity to meet the burgeoning demand.
The naked-faired 2019 Honda CB300R is hauled by a liquid-cooled 286cc motor which produces 20.45PS maximum power and 27.4Nm peak torque. The single-cylinder engine is mated to a 6-speed gear system. The bike is mounted on 41mm upside-down (USD) front forks and a rear preload-adjustable monoshock absorber. The braking duties are handled by disc brakes on both wheels. The bike is equipped with dual channel antilock braking system (ABS) and conforms to the government’s recent order which has been implemented from 1 April. The bike has a kerb weight of 147kg, with a 10-litre petrol tank. Honda claims the motorcycle to return a mileage of 30.2kmpl.
