Even though the bike is a low-capacity sports bike, its looks give the vibe of a café-racer and neo-retro tourer types of machines.
The styling is based on the current CB1000R. The round LED headlight of the bike gives it a neo-retro look and makes it the most striking feature in it.
The geometric arcs in the 9.7-litre fuel tank make it look highly muscular and aggressive. The step-up seat not only looks impressive but balances the weight distribution. With a height of 801 mm, the rider seat is exceptionally comfortable to ride, and the rear seat is also comfy for the pillion rider.
At the rear end of the saddle, the bike features an under-seat LED tail light that blinks when the rider applies brakes. The bike’s tail section has intriguing fixtures, and the silver number plate hanger gives it a stunning look.
The bike is a naked sports machine built on a diamond-type chassis with a fantastic suspension set-up.
The all-black upswept exhaust pipe eliminates the smoke and reduces the engine sound, enhancing the bike’s muscular appeal.
If we discuss the dimensions, the Honda CB300R is 2,017 mm long, 802 wide, and has a height of 1,047 mm. It has a wheelbase of 1,352 mm, and the ground clearance of 157 mm enables it to ride on almost all types of roads.
The motorcycle comes in two colour options:
- Matte steel black

The Honda CB300R comes in only one variant
The Honda CB300R comes with a wide array of exciting features. One of the most prominent ones is the retro-styled round LED headlamp, which looks attractive and gives brilliant light.
The motorcycle features a fully-digital instrument cluster with digital LCD instruments showing speed, distance travelled, gear position, and more. The bike has a GPS and navigation feature that lets the rider know the location and direction.
The bike gets equipped with a dual air intake duct that enhances air intake and optimises torque delivery. The bike comes with an electric start button.
The bike also comes with a killswitch button or the engine stop button, which is helpful in emergencies.
The motorcycle runs on 5-spoke all-blacked-out Y-shaped 17-inch aluminium wheels both at the front and the rear.
The bike has a pass light that allows riders to signal before overtaking any vehicle in front of them. It also has an emergency stop signal that detects sudden braking and automatically activates the front and rear hazard lights, and this warns all nearby vehicles about the sudden braking.
The 2022 Honda CB300R is powered by a 286cc, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder BS6 engine, mated to a six-speed manual gearbox. The mill can generate a top power of 31.1 bhp at 9,000 rpm and a peak torque of 27.5 Nm at 7,500 rpm.
Digging deeper, we get some beneficial insights. The bore is 76 mm long while the stroke is 63.04 mm, which gives the engine a rectangular shape. Each cylinder has four valves and one spark plug, and the compression ratio is 10.7:1.
As discussed, the transmission of the Honda CB300R is taken care of by a six-speed manual gearbox that’s attached to a chain drive. Like in most six-speed bikes, the gear shifting pattern is five up and one down.
The bike is built on a diamond-type chassis linked to an upside-down 41 mm (1.6 in) telescopic forks in the front and a swingarm, five-way preload-adjustable monoshock with Pro-Link at the rear.
Taking care of the braking duties are radially-mounted 4-piston Nissin callipers with single floating 296 mm (11.7 in) disc brakes at the front and a single-piston calliper with a single 220 mm (8.7 in) disc at the rear.
