Honda 2Wheelers India has posted the promotional video for the new CB300R on its YouTube channel. The two-wheeler brand has also revealed a list of accessories, along with the prices to customise the premium motorcycle.
The accessories would be available through the limited Honda dealerships that also offer the CB300R. The list includes several parts that are aimed to enhance the protection to various parts of the motorcycle. The optional extras are sold at a premium price tag. The crankcase cover, for example, would cost you INR 13,431 while a radiator cover would set you back by INR 5,137. A service stand that would come handy for tasks such as chain cleaning and lubrication, among others could be purchased for INR 8,818. Complete list in the image below:
Buyers could also opt for pre-defined kits that club a bunch of accessories depending on the riding conditions. For example, the Protection kit, which costs INR 35,895, includes crankcase cover, fuel lid pad, radiator cover, headlight mask and under guard. Similarly, there are Premium, Sports and Standard packages to select from. Optional kits and prices in the image below:
The CB300R is pitched in the relatively premium segment, and the ex-showroom prices stand at INR 2.41 lakh. The motorcycle is imported to India via the CKD route and competes against the KTM 390 Duke and the BMW G 310 R. The pricing also brings it close to the Royal Enfield Interceptor INT 650 that retails for INR 2.50 lakh (entry-level model – ex-showroom Delhi).
The Honda CB300R uses styling cues from the Neo Sports Café design theme – a design philosophy that is seen on the bigger models like the CB1000R and the CB650R. Mechanical specifications include a 286 cc liquid-cooled, single cylinder, fuel-injected DOHC engine. Paired with a 6-speed gearbox, the motor makes maximum power of 30.9 bhp at 8,500 rpm while the peak torque of 27.5 Nm comes at 7,500 rpm.
The feature list is at par with its direct rival, the KTM 390 Duke and the CB300R comes equipped with full LED lighting, upside-down telescopic forks at the front, and a digital instrument console. However, unlike the Austrian motorcycle, the CB300R does not feature smartphone integration via Bluetooth to manage music and calls.
