Honda CB300R features
The flagship CB1000R served as inspiration for the design of the 2023 CB300R, which does not alter from that model. Highlights on the outside include split seats, an upswept double barrel exhaust, a muscular fuel tank, and a circular LED headlight. Its features include an all-LED lighting system, a fully digital instrument cluster, an emergency stop signal, and a warning light switch.
The CB300R is available from Honda in Pearl Spartan Red and Matte Massive Grey Metallic. Regarding hardware, the suspension system consists of an adjustable mono-shock absorber at the back and 41mm USD front forks. Dual-channel ABS is standard, and it helps with the 296mm front disc brake and the 220mm rear disc brake.
The 286cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that powers the CB300R is now more environmentally friendly than it was previously. This motor produces 27.5 Nm of torque and 30.7 horsepower. A 6-speed gearbox with a slip and assist clutch is mated to this unit. With a weight of 146 kg, the revised CB300R is the lightest model in its class.
