Honda CBR300R Highlights

CBR300R Specifications

Mated to a six-speed transmission, the Honda CBR300R is powered by a 286cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, producing 31PS of power at 8,500rpm and a peak torque of 27Nm at 7,250rpm. The fuel-injected motor is a bored out version of the 249cc engine seen on the CBR250R. Braking is done via a single 296mm disc brake at the front and a 220mm disc at the rear. Additionally, ABS is offered as standard. Suspension duties are taken care of by 37mm telescopic front forks and a 5-step adjustable monoshock at the back.

CBR300R Features

One glance at the Honda CBR300R and it’s easy to understand that the styling of the bike has been heavily inspired from the CBR500R, especially the twin-split headlights and the tank extensions. Similar to the CBR250R, the slightly rear-set footpegs and two-piece handlebar should result in a subtly sporty yet comfortable riding posture, which is essential for a sports tourer.

Honda CBR300R Competitors

TVS Apache RR 310 : The Apache RR 310 comes across as a welcome addition to the entry-level sports bikes segment in India. While it's far more accessible than the Benelli and the Kawasaki, it does face some fierce competition from the KTM RC 390. So if you have a budget of around Rs 2.5 lakh and aren’t looking for something that is too track focused and want a good balance of everyday usability as well, then the Apache RR 310 should be the go-to bike.

KTM RC 390 : : While the KTM RC 390 is priced higher than the Apache RR 310, it packs in a lot more punch with tech like a slipper clutch. Also, it is a purely track-focused machine. It has remained a go-to option for riders looking for a dedicated track tool, thanks to its ergonomics, suspension setup and handling characteristics. It still remains the most value for money motorcycle, given its huge list of features and that power-packed motor.

Kawasaki Ninja 300 : The Kawasaki hasn't garnered a lot of fame in India, especially due to its price tag. It does come across as a very potent track tool despite not being as sharp ergonomically as the KTM. This also makes it a more approachable machine for riders to use it for their daily stints as well. Plus the additional money gets you an extra cylinder and a reliable brand name. Power, though, is still not at par with the KTM and ABS is sorely missed.

Benelli 302R : This Italian offering doesn’t have the performance to match either the KTM or the Ninja 300. But what it does offer is a big bike feel and an exciting sounding in-line two motor. It also offers a more relaxed riding posture in comparison to the other two. But the cost is a bit on the higher side for the overall quality and what you get as a package.

  • I have ridden my 2018/19 CBR250R to Ooty and chickamagalur hilly terrains with pillion and Rynox saddle bags comfortably. Ridder weight - 75 kgsPillion weight - 50 kgs We rode uphill to ooty through hairpin bends comfortably. I did feel the necessity of ample torque at lower RPMs when I got stuck behind a Honda Amaze in a steep curve.With CBR250R you get ample torque only after 4k-4.5k RPMS.The curve was too steep mostly at 45 to 50% degrees.The car driver was new to hilly terrains and got tensed when his car did nt pickup with four passengers on board. I had almost reached the peak of the uphill road and had to stop due the car upfront and I had to downshift and put it to neutral as car was blocking my way.After finding a way to get out, My Bike did not pick up from 1st gear with the pillion. I did n’t wanted to risk of throttling more to reach 4K RPMs to gain the required torque to move out. The bike felt like suffocating !! I asked my pillion to step down and it picked up easily. Please advise me if you guys feel I could have done better to pick up …
