BS6 Honda CB300R Is FINALLY Coming!


Will be accompanied by a special anniversary edition of the H’ness CB350

Honda has been tight-lipped about its future plans. No teasers, no announcements, or anything to build up hype. However, IBW had put up its schedule on social media and later deleted it, but that gave away Honda’s special plans for the event -- globally debuting the BS6 CB300R and an anniversary edition of the H’ness CB350.

The CB300R was the only neo-retro offering in the 300cc naked segment and one of the lightest in its class, too. Thanks to its design and a likeable single-cylinder engine, the CB300R was considered a good alternative to the KTM 390 Duke. However, it fell prey to strict BS6 norms in April 2020 and was ultimately discontinued.

In its ‘new’ avatar, we don’t expect the CB300R to be...well, new. Just some engine tweaks to help it adhere to BS6 norms and probably a few extra colours. What will be interesting to see, though, is whether the BS6-compliance results in a drop in performance and gain in weight (and by how much).  

Also, since this will be a global debut, the CB300R could be finally assembled locally, thus (theoretically) bringing down costs. Even if Honda prices it near the Rs 2.5-2.6 lakh mark (around Rs 10,000-20,000 more than its old price), it’ll be a decent deal, considering it’ll undercut the 390 Duke by nearly Rs 30,000. 

Next up is the anniversary edition of the Honda H’ness CB350. Expect this to feature special badges, chrome elements, and, most importantly, a striking livery (hopefully). 

We can’t wait to see these two bikes break cover. And if you can’t too, be sure to stay tuned as we’ll bring you all the updates from IBW right here.
