      re: Honda CB300R launched in India at INR 2.41 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom, India)

      Honda has finally launched the much awaited CB300R here in India at an event in Delhi. They confirmed that they will be launching the Honda CB300R in India and the motorcycle is indeed here. Now, they made one more promise that it will be price under 2.5 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom) and that promise has also been kept as the Honda CB300R has been launched at INR 2.41 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom, India). The deliveries are set to begin by the third week of March 2019.

      Unveiled globally at the EICMA 2017, the Honda CB300R is a part of Honda’s Neo Sports Café portfolio. It also follows the neo-retro styling just like the CB 1000R with a round headlamp, chiseled fuel tank and a minimalistic tail. They have also added the LED headlights and USD forks. The CB300R features an all-digital LCD instrument cluster which has readouts for speed, engine rpm, and fuel level and gear position. Honda also launched the CB1000R in India just a while ago at INR 14.46 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom).

      Powering the bike is a 286cc DOHC 4-valve liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine churning out 30.9PS of power at 8,500rpm and 27Nm of torque at 7,500rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed transmission.

      As far as underpinnings are concerned, the CB300R features a tubular steel frame, which is suspended on 41mm USD forks at the front and a preload adjustable monoshock, while the swingarm is a steel-plate unit. Braking is handled by a 296mm front disc with a four-piston caliper and a 220mm disc at the back with a single-piston caliper. Dual-channel ABS is also on offer with an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which is a class first. Seat height is relatively low at 779mm and the bike tips the scale at 147kg (kerb weight).

              Interesting that the bike has put on 4kgs from the earlier quoted hyped 143kgs!

              Could it be due to the saree guard and side crash protectors?

                I called up the authorized dealer of Honda for CB300R in Hyderabad, they said deliveries will take 4-5 months. But the post says, deliveries will begin in March 2019.

                  What's more interesting is the fact that Honda India has listed the CB300R under the "Superbikes" tab. Interesting indeed!

                  Lovely pricing in my opinion when compared to 250R
                  USD FORKS
                  ABS G-Sensor while IMU – Inertial Measurement Unit
                  LED LIGHTS
                  LOVELY INSTRUMENTATION
                  BUMPED UP POWER.
                  FANTASTIC STYLING


                  Honda truly have a winner in their hands. Lo and behold, servicing and parts availability should be taken care of my HMSI to make sure post purchase experience a delight.

                  Cheers!

                  And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

                    Maybe because its a CKD

                    Well lets hope the dealer is wrong.

                      Yup, the dealers are saying deliveries will begin from June end...

                      Btw, that pricing, looks like a suicide mission

                        It's due to the bookings which has already topped the production plan of 3 months !!

                          Doesn't anyone think it's a bit overpriced like the cbr250 abs? There's both the option of either the Enfield or the Duke at this price point which offer better value.

                            Which is not surprising considering what I said a few days ago:

                            Assuming 200 plus bookings overall and a waiting period of 3 months already, I am guessing Honda imports 70 odd 300Rs a month which roughly gives an annual target of about 900 units which is feasible for what the R3 managed in a year.

                              Yes and No in a way, Honda have priced it less than D390 by ₹3K, everyone was hoping they shouldn't price it over the D390 and they have got this part right. Considering the D390 is fully built here and CB300R is CKD, well done Honda.

                              If we go by the process of elimination in the quarter liter segment, for some D390 is way too powerful and flashy, while the RE Enfield twins is too much old classic retro looking bike.
                              Apart from the Mojo(low sales and service network issues), Dominar (bulky, tall seat and less flickable in city), Himalayan(reliability issues on old bikes and ADV oriented) and the overpriced BMW twins there is nothing much in this segment creating a void if we exclude the twin cylinder bikes like the R3, N300, Benelli 300 etc. Other bikes RC390, RR310 have specfic sporty track oriented target market.

                              So for some casual rider who is looking a single cylinder modern looking bike unlike the RE bikes, yet not way too powerful unlike the D390, light weight 800mm seat height and flickable city bike unlike the Domi, with solid service support at every 5kms unlike the Mojo, the CB300R ticks every single box with full on ABS, stuble looks and USD forks etc etc!

                              This bike gets my thumbs up , apart from few little not so important niggles and quirks which has been already discussed extensively like the GPI, Swapped horn indicator position and long waiting periods , all of which can be solved or gotten used too over time.

                              I only hope in future they reduce the price even further with local assembly and/or even launch the full faired brother CBR300R and/or ADV bike based on this bike!
