Here are some of the best 300cc bikes in India. A number of new bikes with this engine size have recently been introduced in India. Existing models have also been updated with BS6-compliant engines. If you want an affordable performance-oriented bike, the 300cc segment has plenty of options.
1. Honda CB300R
The Honda CB300R is one of India’s most popular 300cc motorcycles. It has a neo-retro modern-day cafe racer design, similar to its younger sibling, the Honda CB150R, which sets it apart. The CB300R will be updated to the 2021 model soon. It is available in two colours, and the current Honda CB300R price in India starts at Rs 2.41 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom).
2. TVS Apache RR310
The Apache RR310 is TVS’s first fully faired motorcycle. The Apache RR 310 is based on the BMW G 310 R and was developed in collaboration with TVS Racing riders. The Apache RR 310 has an aggressive design and a slew of premium features. Because of its comfortable riding posture, the motorcycle is both a track-focused machine and a sports tourer. The TVS Apache RR 310 is powered by a 312.2cc liquid-cooled, reverse inclines, single-cylinder engine producing 33.5bhp and 27.3Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed transmission. The Apache RR 310 can accelerate from 0 to 60 km/h in 2.93 seconds and top out at 160 km/h.
3. Kawasaki Ninja 300
In the premium supersport segment, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 is one of the best-selling 300cc bikes in India. It has a very elegant design and is powered by a parallel-twin engine. Ninja 300 is available in four different colours. In India, the Kawasaki Ninja 300 starts at Rs 2.98 Lakhs INR (Ex-Showroom).
4. Benelli 302R
The new design is the model’s defining feature. The vertically stacked projector headlamp, flanked by LED DRLs on either side, and new LED tail light replace the halogen units from the previous model. The bodywork receives air vents to help channel the air around more effectively. Benelli has kept the same 14-liter fuel tank and side panels.
The 300cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine is the same as before, but it now produces 35.35PS at 11,000rpm and 27Nm at 9,000rpm. This model has 3.5PS less and 0.5Nm more torque than the current model. However, the brand has compensated for the loss of power by removing 18kg from the motorcycle.
5. BMW G310RR
The BMW G310 RR is a sports bike that starts at Rs. 2,85,000 in India. It is available in two variants and two colours, with the top variant starting at Rs. 2,99,000. The BMW G310 RR is powered by a 312cc BS6 engine that produces 33.5 bhp and 27.3 Nm of torque. BMW G310 RR has an anti-lock braking system with both front and rear disc brakes.
