2022 Honda CB300R launched at Rs 2.77 lakh

The naked steetfighter rivals the likes of the Bajaj Dominar 400, KTM Duke 390, BMW G310R and the TVS Apache RR310.

Honda has launched the 2022 CB300R in the Indian market. The bike is priced at Rs 2.77 lakh (ex-showroom). The updated BS6-iteration of the motorcycle was first showcased at the 2021 India Bike Week (IBW). The 2022 CB300R will now be assembled locally.

The motorcycle carries forward the same bodywork and design as the previous model, albeit with a few subtle updates. The CB300R now comes with golden forks, along with a blacked-out headlamp bezel and radiator shrouds. Honda has also updated the design of the exhaust, giving the motorcycle a sportier look. The 2022 Honda CB300R now comes in two new colours: Matte Steel Black & Pearl Spartan Red.

The motorcycle also comes with LED lights all around, a new LCD display with a gear position indicator and a shift light.

Powering the 2022 CB300R is an updated 286cc single-cylinder 4-valve DOHC engine. It produces 31.1 BHP @ 9,000 rpm and 27.5 Nm @ 7,500 rpm and is paired with a 6-speed gearbox with slip & assist clutch as standard. The suspension and braking setup remains identical to the old BS4 model.

The 2022 Honda CB300R will be sold via the brand's 88 premium BigWing dealerships across the country. Bookings for the motorcycle are now open.
