Honda CBR300R vs TVS Apache RR 310: The entry of Apache RR 310 reminded us of a neat motorcycle that could have welcomed the flagship sprinter from TVS in a better way. Yes, you are guessing in the right direction. It’s Honda and definitely none other than the CBR300R.

The successor to CBR250R in most markets, the Honda CBR300R is smart, good looking and has a design inspired by the litre-class 2016 CBR1000RR Fireblade. The brand should have launched the CBR300R in India instead of relaunching the CBR250R at the Auto Expo 2018.

The new model of the 300cc CBR is a better and worthy rival to the Apache RR 310. As of now, Honda has not announced anything officially regarding the launch of the CBR300R in India though, we can expect it to replace the CBR250R by mid-2020.

Honda CBR300R vs TVS Apache RR 310

# Engine – TVS Apache RR 310 is powered by a 312.2cc, single-cylinder engine equipped with fuel injection and liquid cooling. The engine is good for 34HP @ 9700 rpm and 27.2Nm @ 7700 rpm. Honda CBR300R is equipped with a 286cc engine, producing 30.4HP @ 8500 rpm and 27.1Nm @ 7250 rpm. The Apache RR 310 is more powerful but CBR300R delivers the power at a lower rpm level. Both the 300cc-segment sportbikes are equipped with a 6-speed gearbox.

# Dimensions – Honda CBR300R measures 2035mm in length, 720mm in width and 1120mm in height. It offers 145mm of ground clearance and 785mm of low seat height. The wet weight tips the scale at 164kg. The sportbike is equipped with a 13-litre fuel tank. In comparison, the TVS Apache RR 310 measures 2001mm in length, 786mm in width and 1135mm in height. The seat height is 810mm while the ground clearance on offer comes out to be 180mm. It weighs 169.5kgs and offers 11-litres of fuel tank capacity.

The length and height of both the sportbikes are practically the same but Honda CBR300R shows its lean profile through much lesser width and low weight. It even carries 2 litres of more fuel for a better overall range. The TVS Apache RR 310 may not be as fit as the CBR300R for the short riders. Still, the 180mm of ground clearance offered by Apache is miraculous for Indian roads.

# Features – Both the bikes are equipped with a 2-channel ABS unit and both of them carry a dual headlight front fascia. The updated model of the Apache RR 310 now even comes with a race-tuned slipper clutch as standard. The use of LED lights on the Apache at both front and rear saves energy and improves visibility. The Honda CBR300R may get an update for lights before its official launch in the Indian market. Both the bikes are offered with front and rear disc brakes while TVS wins the game with USD front forks in comparison to the conventional telescopic ones on the CBR.

# Design – Fireblade lovers know the importance of this design of Honda CBR300R. It is highly aerodynamic and looks ageless in all aspects. The long exhaust looks proportional and well-designed for a bike of this size. The fairing is neat and the fuel tank looks almost similar to the India-spec CBR250R. TVS Apache RR 310, on the other hand, feels more dynamic and looks race-ready at all times. The huge exhaust looks out of proportion from some angles though, the golden USD forks further enhance its character in front of CBR300R.

# Console – TVS wins the console game without even trying to battle. The all-digital console is very informative and comes with loads of features. Honda CBR300R uses the same instrument console as the India-spec model of the CBR250R. It looks good but does not feel as premium as the one used on the Apache RR 310 though, Honda is expected to update the console of the CBR300R in the coming months. The sportbike is also expected to get a minor facelift in terms of the design.

# Price – TVS Apache RR 310 was launched in India @ INR 2.15 Lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi). At present, it is priced at INR 2.27 lakh in most of the states in India. If Honda launches the CBR300R sportbike in India, it would be priced somewhere over INR 2.50 lakh mark as the CB300R costs INR 2.41 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi).

Aprilia GPR 150 vs Honda CBR150R (Quick Comparison): Aprilia GPR 150 and Honda CBR150R are two impressive lightweight racers that the Indian market can get in 2020. The former was spotted in India a few months ago at a dealer event, hinting that Aprilia is planning to enter the popular 150cc motorcycle segment as early as possible.

In terms of looks, the Aprilia GPR 150 is different in comparison to the model (RS 150) showcased at the Auto Expo 2018, as it is based on a China-spec 150cc Aprilia sportbike. Honda CBR150R is yet to make an official entry into India, either through a test mule or a model that can be showcased to the dealers to gauge the response.

The performance values of both the bikes are highly comparable, with CBR getting benefits of its lightweight body while GPR 150 bringing higher overall power output. The tyre size, rear brake size, and 2-channel ABS stay same on both the models. The torque output is higher on the CBR150R. Here is a quick comparison between Aprilia GPR 150 and the Honda CBR150R.

Yamaha YZF-R15 V1 vs V2 vs V3 (Detailed Comparison): Yamaha R15 was initially launched in India in 2008 and ten years later, the third generation model arrived with better-than-ever performance and equipment list. The R15 V1 was the first motorcycle of its kind, using race-derived chassis, powerful engine, and technology that was missed on most of the products in 2008.

The motorcycle featured liquid cooling, fuel injection, and an aerodynamic full-faired body with perfect proportions for that time. The first generation ruled the tracks for a short period of time as September 2011 witnessed the launch of R15 V2 in the country. The motorcycle was essentially an R15 V1 with better tires, refined design lines, and a head-turning tail section.

Yamaha used a better-looking exhaust, refined engine, and better colours on the second generation model. The 149cc engine on the motorcycle remained unchallenged for a full decade before the introduction of their new 155.1cc engine on the third generation model.

The current generation of the lightweight motorcycle, popularly called R15 V3, is good for 2.3HP worth more output in comparison to the first two models, which generate 17HP of maximum power. Not just that, it comes with an all-digital console, slipper clutch, and ABS over the old versions. The price hike of INR 12,000 helped the R15 V3 achieve the much-awaited 2-channel ABS unit in India.

Yamaha even introduced the R15-S variant to help customers who missed the rear seat comfort on the R15 V2. In comparison to the Indonesia-spec model, the Indian version of the R15 V3 is equipped with conventional telescopic front forks and different footpeg holders.

The model is also the first one to bring LED lights as standard. The first generation model weighs just 131kg while one decade of engineering has added 11kg to the overall motorcycle weight. Also, the iconic 1290mm of wheelbase for R15 V1 is still the best-in-class figure in the Indian industry.

Aprilia RS 150 vs Yamaha R15 V3: At present, the Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 is available in India for INR 1.41 lakh while the Aprilia RS 150 was showcased to gauge customer interest at the Auto Expo in February 2018. As buyers will prefer going for Yamaha R15 V3 for its easy availability, the Aprilia RS 150 is also a potential product that one could think about owning when it launches in India in 2020. Here are some points that can help you clear your double thoughts regarding Yamaha R15 V3 and Aprilia RS 150.

Aprilia RS 150 made its Global Debut in India at the Auto Expo in February 2018

Aprilia RS 150 vs Yamaha R15 V3

1) Design and Styling: Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 is a clean departure from V1 and V2 design language, bringing MotoGP M1 style flat fuel tank and thinner front lights. The highest level of interest was to make it aerodynamically more efficient and internally more powerful.

Aprilia RS 150 is a downsized version of RSV4 RR, helping it attain the showstopper profile successfully. It seems like Aprilia built this 150cc bike on the frame and panels from RS 125. Another theory claims that the GPR 150 will serve as the base for India-spec RS 150.

2) Engine & Performance: Yamaha R15 Version 3.0 is powered by a 155.1cc engine producing 19.3 HP of maximum power and 14.7 Nm of peak torque. On the other hand, the Aprilia RS 150 uses a 150cc engine producing 18 HP of power and 14 Nm of torque. The output values are better in R15 while the wet weight will further decide which one out of these two gets the best power-to-weight ratio.

3) Component List: Aprilia RS 150 is a clear winner here with the addition of USD forks along with a 2-channel ABS unit in comparison to the available features on the Yamaha R15 Version 3.0. The Italian marque has not yet confirmed that it will bring exactly the same product to India though, it seems like the brand will localize more and keep the premium features alive for a good plus point. As the Indian government has made it mandatory for all 125cc+ bikes to be equipped with ABS, the Aprilia RS 150 will arrive with standard ABS for sure.

4) Pricing: Yamaha played it safe by skipping the USD forks and launched the R15 V3 ABS for INR 1.39 lakh in India. After the recent price hike, the sportbike is now available at INR 1.41 lakh (ex-showroom). Aprilia is expected to charge a premium of around INR 7,000-8,000 as their sportbike is equipped with USD front forks. The RS 150 is expected to be priced around INR 1.50 lakh (ex-showroom).

Honda CB125R vs KTM Duke 125: The launch of KTM Duke 125 along with the Honda CB300R has an indirect connection for the Indian street bike fans. The former is the most affordable premium motorcycle of its genre while the latter is based on the same Neo-Sports Cafe concept as CB125R.

This means that the chances of Honda considering CB125R for the Indian market are all-time high next year. The 125cc engine, an under-belly exhaust system, and the sharp tank panels are the only three differences between the CB300R and the CB125R.

KTM Duke 125 comes with USD forks, wide tyres, and an all-digital console. All three features are also true for the Honda CB125R. The CB125R can help Honda eliminate the need for any other premium motorcycle in the 150cc segment as changing times are pushing more buyers towards the environment-friendly 125cc premium bikes. Here is a quick comparison between the new Honda CB125R and the KTM Duke 125.

New Bajaj Dominar vs Old Bajaj Dominar (Quick Comparison): Bajaj Auto launched the much-awaited 2019 Dominar in India earlier this year with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.74 lakh. After the recent price hikes, the motorcycle is now available for INR 1.90 lakh. The new model has undergone a complete performance transformation in the 2019 variant, gaining just 2kg of weight and taking the overall power output to 40HP.

The 2018 version was good for 35HP of power, criticized by many as the Bajaj’s inability to use the complete output from the 373cc single-cylinder engine. The 2019 Dominar 400 comes with dual exhaust exits, USD front forks with a metallic finish and chrome-finished dual-tone alloy wheels. The six-speed gearbox stays the same but features a different setting for improved in-gear acceleration.

The improved power figure of 40HP is achieved at 8650 rpm while the torque remains similar at 35 Nm but is now achieved at 7000 rpm. The most powerful Dominar of all time, the 2019 variant comes with an updated instrument console with dot-matrix alerts and warning messages in the display.

Yamaha R15 V3 vs Honda CBR150R (Quick Comparison): Yamaha YZF-R15 Version 3.0 and the new Honda CBR150R are the closest possible rivals for 150cc premium performance segment. The R15 V3 made its official debut in India at the Auto Expo 2018 while the new CBR150R is still under the expected list of products for the Indian market. Honda has a great chance here as they could revive the CBR150R in India and bring some real competition to similarly priced bikes.

As the Yamaha R15 V3 is now available with ABS and priced at INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom), one can expect Honda to place the new model of the CBR150R ABS slightly lower for better competition. Honda has brought the quarter-litre CBR250R back and thus, the chances of CBR150R’s revival are now higher than ever.

We are not sure whether Honda CBR150R will launch in India or not. If it comes at the right time, buyers are suggested to choose one of them according to their needs. Strict speed lovers who ride once a month on track should blindly go for the Yamaha R15 V3 while those who ride for the leisurely purpose should consider the Honda CBR150R as it offers the best power-to-weight ratio in the everyday rpm range. Pricing will further decide the fate of CBR150R in India as higher displacement products are available at impressive prices.

Aprilia GPR 150 vs Yamaha R15 V3 (Quick Comparison): The upcoming Aprilia GPR 150 (RS 150) is a direct rival to the Yamaha R15 V3 ABS. The lightweight motorcycle was seen for the first time in a production-ready guise at a dealer meeting in India, hinting at a launch event at the Auto Expo in February 2020.

The GPR 150 comes with 18HP of claimed power output and weighs lighter in comparison to the R15 V3. On the other hand, Yamaha will have a clear benefit of an extensive dealership network whereas the Piaggio group has more presence in the South Indian states.

Aprilia GPR 150 features USD forks and thus, pricing will stay premium in comparison to the R15 V3. The expected price gap between both the models will stay around INR 10,000.

Aprilia is using the China-based design for the Indian market, leaving behind the popular RS 125-inspired design that is on sale in the European countries. The most powerful bike of its segment, the Yamaha R15 V3 is good for 19.3HP of maximum output. Here is a quick comparison between the R15 V3 and the GPR 150.
