- Deliveries for the rest of India will commence soon.
- The CB300R is the most affordable CKD offering from Honda in India.
- It’s priced at Rs 2.41 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has started deliveries of the highly-anticipated CB300R in India. The deliveries are applicable for the first batch of customers residing in cities like Chandigarh, Jaipur, Gurugram and Delhi. These cities have started getting the bikes earlier as they are closer to Honda’s manufacturing plant in Gurugram, Haryana, thus making it easier for the company to manufacture and dispatch the CB300R to these customers a wee bit quicker compared to the rest of the country.
Aside from this, there’s further delay in the state of Maharashtra due to Gudi Padwa and by extension, delay in registration of the vehicle and other formalities too. That said, the bikes should be delivered in the coming few days. The Japanese bikemaker has also launched a range of accessories from individual parts to four pre-designed kits - Premium, Protection, Standard and Sports, to complement the sports naked bike.
The Honda CB300R has received an overwhelming response ever since its launch two months ago. So much so, that in February, Honda had announced that bike was sold out for the next three months. However, since then, the company has ramped up production for the sports naked and its bookings are open across all Honda Wings dealerships in India. The waiting period for the bike, on the other hand, will vary from dealership to dealership. The response isn’t surprising, considering the kind of kit the CB300R offers at a price of Rs 2.41 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). For instance, the bike features TFT instrument console, LED lighting, a segment-first IMU-based ABS system and premium underpinnings.
It's powered by a 286cc, single-cylinder engine that puts out 30.45PS of power and 27.4Nm of torque. It comes equipped with premium underpinnings like USD forks, a rear monoshock, an aluminium swingarm and petal discs.
