The Honda CB300F launched unexpectedly, just as the Indian automotive community was anticipating the Forza 350 maxi scooter. The motorbike was characterised by its low weight, which would lead to brisk performance and a greater power-to-weight ratio.
Honda CB300F pricing looked to be a drawback for the motorbike at Rs. 2.26 lakh for the Deluxe variation and Rs. 2.29 lakh for the Deluxe Pro model. The CB300R, which was offered alongside it for Rs. 2.77 lakh and is more potent, further damaged its reputation (all prices ex-sh).
Honda CB300F’s price has been reduced by Rs 50,000
It has been discovered that the CB300F’s ex-sh price has been lowered by a whopping Rs. 50,000 by the Japanese brand’s dealers. According to the dealer, this brings the CB300F’s ex-showroom price down to around Rs. 1.75 lakh. It is a part of Honda’s year-end promotion. Telangana’s on-road cost is around 2.10 lakh, whereas Karnataka’s cost is approximately 2.2 lakh. On-road costs might be close to Rs. 2 lakh in Chandigarh or Puducherry.
For Honda supporters seeking to purchase a 300cc motorbike, this appears to be a fantastic price. The Honda CB300F gives the product a whole new viewpoint and a fresh new look after having Rs. 50K knocked off of its ex-sh price.
The altered cost as a result of the year-end promotion makes motorcycles like the KTM Duke 200 more expensive than the Honda CB300F. The front USD forks of the Honda CB300F are gold, and the engine head and clutch cover are copper. These features raise the premium level that Honda typically aspires for.
Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC), which functions as a traction control system in essence, dual-channel ABS, a fully digital instrument console with adjustable brightness, Bluetooth smartphone connectivity, full LED lighting throughout, and ten patents on technology are among the features offered on the CB300F.
Features & Specs
A new 293 cc single-cylinder engine with a DOHC configuration and a 4V head is installed in the Honda CB300F. At a low speed of 5,500 RPM, it produces 25.6 Nm of torque and 23.8 horsepower of power. Oil cooling and a slipper clutch are included with this engine’s 6-speed transmission.
This motorcycle’s low kerb weight of 153 kg was its key selling point. While simply receiving a lighter and simpler SOHC configuration, a KTM Duke 200 weighs 159 kg, while a Gixxer 250 weighs 156 kg. The year-end sale on the Honda CB300F appears to be the best opportunity to purchase one because the deal might expire in 2022.
