In terms of looks, no changes are expected and the BS6-compliant model of CB300R will continue to feature CB1000R-inspired styling, proving its worth through lightweight body, retro-modern design lines and premium equipment on use. CB300R features a huge exhaust, LED headlight and taillight, 2-channel ABS and many other features as standard.

Mechanically, no major changes are expected except for the up-gradation to meet BS6 emission norms. To jog your memory, the BS4-compliant model was powered by a 286cc, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine, which was good for 31 bhp at 8500 rpm and 27.5 Nm at 7500 rpm. The engine would continue to be mated to a 6-speed gearbox. When launched, the BS6 Honda CB300R would be competing with the likes of KTM Duke 390, BMW G310R, and the CFMoto 300NK.
