The Honda CB300R BS6 motorcycle was recently unveiled at India Bike Week. In April last year, India introduced the Stage-6 (BS-7) Pollution Regulation, which is more effective in protecting the environment, making it mandatory for every company to manufacture or sell cars in compliance with this standard. Although the BS-7 version of almost every model has hit the market, the Honda CB300R is the exception.
So this time Honda is going to bring the bike with the new updated BS-7 engine. The company has said that the entire construction of the motorcycle will be done in India instead of even building parts. As a result, the Honda CB300R BS6 is expected to be more affordable than the older models.
The latest price of the BS-4 version of the Honda CB300R was Rs 2.41 lakh (ex-showroom price in Delhi). Now let’s see how much the upcoming BS-7 version is priced. In India, the price of two-wheelers is on the rise. The BMW G 310, a contemporary bike in this segment, is priced at Rs 2.60 lakh in India. On the other hand, the KTM 390 Duke has priced at Rs 2.6 lakh. However, it is expected that the price of Honda CB300 and BS-7 will be lower than the price of the mentioned bikes.
As well as this it is still unclear whether any changes have been made inside the new version of the Neo Sports Cafe Racer motorbike. The 26-cc liquid-cooled engine of the BS-4 version had an output of 30 bhp and 26.4 nm. In that case, the power and torque of the new Honda CB300R may be slightly reduced in order to reduce the amount of pollution in the BS-6 engine. A 6-speed gearbox will give the engine the right fit.
Meanwhile, the company has announced that the upcoming Honda CB300R BS6 bike will come with an assist and a slipper clutch. After being brought to the front, the motorcycle has a golden USD front fork, which was previously silver in color. On the other hand, its radiator cover has been matte black. However, the bike is expected to be launched in January 2022.
