UBI report:

The Honda CBR300r was first showcased at the 12th China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition in 2013, and since then there had been many reports and speculations of a possible launch in India. However 3 years from the, we are still in the dark on when the bike will launch here.

The Honda CBR300r borrows its design from many of its bigger siblings, including the 1000rr fireblade, making it  (obviously) very beautiful. A twin headlamp setup has been provided , which is the biggest aesthetic difference from the old-generation bike. Almost all other detail remain similar.

The Engine is a 286cc single cylinder unit, producing 30.4 bhp of maximum power. The figures on its own is defiitely big, but looks meager compared to chief competition-The KTM RC390. Still there are people who would prefer the comfort and design of the CBR300r over the KTM.

Honda had brought out new shades for the CBR250r last year, which can only be seen as a way of clearing out stock. So we are hoping for a mid-late launch of the bike in India.
