Honda CB300R comes in via the CKD (Completely Knocked Down) route for the domestic market. Its design is based on the Honda Neo Sports Café concept. Smaller in size as compared to the Honda CB1000R, the CB300R enters the 200-500 cc segment as the lightest bike in its category. It is based on a framework which is constructed with tubular and pressed steel.
Offered in two color choices of Matte Axis Gray Metallic and Candy Chromosphere Red; on board features include all LED lighting which also includes indicators and a round thin LED DRL with built in signature horse shoe shaped light guide – which ensures better visibility. Picking up styling cues from CB1000R, the CB300R gets a sculpted fuel tank of 10 liter capacity, seat design and tank shroud with CB badging.
