Honda CB300R Beats CBR250R in India (Sales Report): Honda CB300R, one of the decently-priced bikes in its segment, has outsold the CBR250R, the mainstay of its space in the same segment. Though Honda officials have reported that the CB300R has been sold out for the coming few weeks, one can easily believe in the lack of production plan for their highly appreciated motorcycle.

Being able to scale a total of 80 units in June 2019, the Honda CB300R sales have surpassed the CBR250R which was able to clock only 51 units in June this year. The lack of decreasing enthusiasm in the fans for the latter is due to the disability of the brand to give a worthy update to the 250cc motorcycle.

  • CBR250R: 51 units

The brand might be able to compensate for the loss in the sales of the Honda CBR250R with a better sales figure of the CB300R but still, these two are the lowest selling motorcycles in the INR 2-3 lakh segment in the Indian market. Directly competing with the RE 650 twins, Ninja 300, BMW G310R, TVS Apache RR 310, Bajaj Dominar 400, and the KTM 390 Duke, the sales of CBR250R and CB300R have been disappointing.

Coming to the solution, Honda can initially plan to solve the production constraints of its best-selling motorcycles by shifting capacity or workforce. They can also import more CKD units of the CB300R to make it available across the major population. The brand can also focus on the much-needed update for the Honda CBR250R, which is still considered as one of the most reliable and refined sportbikes in its segment.

According to a recent report, the Japanese multinational conglomerate Honda is expected to launch the Forza 300 premium scooter in India by the end of this year. The scooter will be exclusively retailed by Honda’s BigWing stores across the country. The brand will reportedly bring the Forza to India through the CBU route.

Honda Forza 300 will enter the Indian market in competition with the 22Kymco 300i as both possess a lot of similarities being a premium maxi-scooter. Forza’s competitor Kymco is available at a price tag of INR 2.30 lakh, while the former is expected to launch with a price tag of around INR 7-8 lakhs, hence making it comparatively much expensive and also beating down a lot of 650cc sportbikes in terms of price.

The primary reason for Forza’s high price tag is the addition of taxes and import duties as the scooter will be made available to the Indian buyers through CBU (Completely Built Unit) route in which the entire assembled model is imported from the origin country to the country where it will be sold.

The secondary reason is the features being offered on the Forza 300, like the all-LED light setup along with the car-like premium semi-digital instrument cluster. The scooter features adjustable windscreen with huge under-seat storage that can hold up to 2 full-faced helmets and it also has a 12-volt socket to charge a smartphone or any other compatible electronic device. Honda Forza 300 is quite a touring focused premium scooter.

You can totally rely on it for a smooth ride as its suspension duties are managed by 33mm telescopic front forks and twin rear shock absorbers with a 7-stage spring preload-adjustment. The brakes get its power from a 256mm disc brake at the front and a 240mm at the rear end.

It ensures the rider’s safety by having 2-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) and HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control), making Forza 300 a one-of-a-kind scooter when it comes to the roads with unfavourable conditions.

Honda Forza 300 is powered by a 279cc fuel-injected single-cylinder engine, which generates a maximum power of 24.8 HP at 7,000 rpm and a peak torque of 27.2 Nm at 5,750 rpm. The company claimed mileage of Forza is 31 kmpl, while you can expect it to deliver around 25 kmpl in real-world conditions. The scooter is equipped with a 120/70-R15 front tyre and a 140/70-R14 rear tyre.

If interested buyers wish to know more about the premier Japanese scooter then they can visit or contact the Honda BigWing outlet situated at Gurugram as they have confirmed the launch of a premium maxi-scooter to happen by the end of the year.

Honda’s CB Unicorn 160 failed to mark its presence in the Indian market. Now, because of the poor sales figures in recent times, the company has decided to discontinue the CB Unicorn 160 in India. Few dealers in Mumbai have confirmed the unavailability of the sports commuter and they have no information regarding the restocking of the bike.

After the CBR150R, CB Trigger, CB Dazzler, CB Twister, Eterno scooter, the CB Unicorn 160 is the next addition to the Honda’s discontinued vehicles. The CB Unicorn 160 was introduced as a successor to the CB Unicorn 150 but the customers still preferred buying the Unicorn 150. With an ex-showroom price of INR 76,000, the CB Unicorn 160 was one of the most affordable bikes as compared to its rivals, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Suzuki Gixxer 155  and the Bajaj Pulsar NS160.

Despite attractive pricing, the company was only able to sell an approximate 13,200 units last fiscal whereas the X-Blade sold close to 4,000 bikes in just May 2019. By introducing the Unicorn 160, the company stopped manufacturing the 150 but after some time they relaunched the Unicorn 150.

Honda Unicorn 160 was powered by a 162.71cc single-cylinder engine that was first shared by the Hornet in a different state of tune. Unicorn 160 was good for 13.82 BHP of maximum power at 8000 rpm and 13.92 Nm of maximum torque at 6000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

The refined motor claims around 45-50 kmpl of mileage on the Unicorn 160. The top speed is limited to 106 kmph due to more emphasis on mileage. The commuter-spec motorcycle was available with 80/100 front and 110/80 rear tyres. The motorcycle is still listed on the official website of Honda, though it is expected that the brand will remove it in the coming days.

2019 Honda CBR650R with Austin Racing Exhaust is the most exciting sound that you’ll hear on a sportbike today. The stock model of the motorcycle is available with a standard exhaust system that has four into one design. However, the owner was not happy with the setup and planned to get the same upgraded to a setup that not just sounds good also reduces the weight by a little margin.

The slip-on unit was mounted by removing the stock setup through a metal cutter. The rider has also removed the rear number plate holder to keep up with the sporty profile but, the same is not recommended as the updated CBR650R you see here now comes without the rear indicators and reflectors. The stock model of the new Honda CBR650R is available for INR 7.70 lakh (ex-showroom), offering the most refined 4-cylinder motor of the 650cc segment.

The huge 90% drop in sales for the Honda CBR250R confirms that faith on older products is getting weaker with each passing day. The model is now only available with an ABS-equipped braking setup and comes with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.95 lakh.

Options like the new Jawa 300 and other above quarter-litre bikes have given the freedom of selection to the buyers that were earlier missing from this segment. Buyers can even consider the new Bajaj Dominar 400 at INR 1.74 lakh and save a lot of money. Not just that, a lot of motorcycles priced lower than the CBR250R have more power output and features.

Honda is using the same old single headlight design for their product and getting options like TVS Apache RR 310 and the KTM RC 390 with a slight increase in the budget further worsens the situation. The brand is facing tough times for all the products as they had to cut production recently in order to avoid inventory pileup with their dealers.

The 249cc, single cylinder engine on the CBR250R is good for 26.5HP of maximum power. The recent entry of the all-new Suzuki Gixxer SF 250 at INR 1.71 lakh has further made the situation uneasy for Honda as the motorcycle undercuts its nearest rival by INR 24,000. Yamaha FZ25 is another reason for the downfall of Honda CBR250R in India.

TVS Apache RR 310 Beats Honda CBR250R (Sales Report): Apache RR 310 came out as the winner in comparison to the most probable rival, the Honda CBR250R. The former registered 175 units in the sales chart while CBR was good for just 54 units in May 2019.

Last month, both the motorcycles were pretty close in terms of sales numbers while this time, it seems like fans of CBR250R are shifting fast into other brands like Suzuki and TVS. The launch of Gixxer SF 250 at INR 1.71 lakh is the worst thing that could happen to the aged CBR250R as both the bikes are offering the same amount of power.

Honda CB1000R Monkey Kong is a neatly modified example of the flagship streetfighter from the Japanese motorcycle giant. Custom-made by Mallorca Motos (Spain) for a contest named ‘Honda Garage Dreams’ in Europe, the motorcycle is inspired from the popular Monkey series in terms of equipment and colour selection.

Starting from the front, CB1000R seen here features golden-finished USD front forks instead of the black one. The golden fever can also be spotted on the headlight fins, frame, and fuel tank of the motorcycle. The front fender is raised like a typical off-road machine, complementing the custom exhaust system with higher than usual height to mimic the Monkey bike stance.

The lower half of the fuel tank features the ivory finish while black exhaust comes with chrome panel on the side to keep the pillion away from the heating surface. CB1000R comes with a modern set of indicators, duly replaced with the Honda Monkey-inspired set of units to keep up with the profile.

The Honda logo remains similar to the one seen on the original motorcycle while rear suspension now comes with a yellowish-golden spring instead of the red-finished one. The motorcycle is available with a premium single-sided swingarm and dual front disc brakes as standard.

Honda CB1000R is powered by a 998cc, four-cylinder engine producing 143.5 HP at 10,500 rpm and 104 Nm at 8,250 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The fuel tank carries 16.2-litres of fuel while the stock weight for the model is 213 kg.

The switch of exhaust and fender would definitely result in a weight change and not just that, the centre of gravity also changes with a higher-placed exhaust. The four-pipe layout remains the same as the standard motorcycle while the stock exhaust is pretty short in comparison to the Monkey-inspired exhaust can. At present, the stock model of the Honda CB1000R is available in India for INR 14.45 lakh.
