Honda has unveiled the CB300R retro street-fighter at the 2017 EICMA.
Honda has taken wraps off the CB300R at the 2017 EICMA. The CB300R borrows styling cues from the bigger CB1000R and is developed under a design theme of ‘Neo Sports Cafe’. The design comes across as modern and is a fusion of sports naked and cafe racer form.
The Honda CB300R sits on a new tubular steel chassis and gets a steel-plate swingarm. The bike uses up-side down forks up front and pre-load adjustable monoshock at the rear. Braking duties are via 296 mm front disc and 220 mm disc at the rear, with ABS as standard. The retro naked draws power from a 286cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled and fuel-injected motor that produces 31 HP of power at 8500 RPM and 27.5 Nm of torque at 7500 RPM. This motor comes paired to a 6-speed gearbox.
The Honda CB300R comes shod with 17-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 110 and 150-section front and rear tyres respectively. Other cool features include a fully digital LCD instrument cluster, LED headlamp and tail-light. Alongside the CB300R, Honda has also unveiled the CB125R and CB1000R.
