Honda recently showcased their CBR300R at the 71st EICMA Motorcycle Show at Milan. Unlike its younger brother, the CBR300R borrows style elements from the CBR1000R and as a result, sports a more aggressive front.
The baby Fireblade houses a 286cc, 4-stroke motor that churns out a healthy 30 BHP at 8500 RPM and a peak torque of 2.75 KGM at 7200 RPM. The front nose and the side panels lend the motorcycle a more aggressive stance, something that CBR250R sorely lacked.
Honda have plugged in a 37mm front telescopic fork suspension and a monoshock at the rear, and a single 296mm disc upfront while a 220mm unit does the braking at rear with ABS as optional.
The new CBR will be produced at Honda’s Thailand facility and shipped to other countries. Expect the CBR to hit our shores early 2014, with a price tag of 2.5-3 lakh.
