The three-year-old CB300R is already one of the more fun and good-looking entry-level motorcycles out there. While it hasn’t quite picked up the pace in the sales game as expected, Honda has decided to refresh its cute offering.
The 8mm in wheelbase from 1,352mm versus 1,344mm of the outgoing bike increase might not exactly sound like a giant leap in core dimensions.
But it’s a move away from its short-end wheelbase rivals that should help the bike appeal to more people looking to hop on two wheels for the first time. The bike gets LED lights and a new LCD with a gear position indicator and shift light.

There are no changes in the chassis and frame compared to the outgoing model. It has the same suspension. Further, the bike uses the same brakes when compared with the outgoing model
With the introduction of the new model in India, Honda is looking to bring in some updates and freshen up the bike’s design to better appeal to customers. The changes have netted a sleeker look for the bike with more colour options for buyers.
The new CB from Honda Sports India is available in two new paint jobs — Matte Steel Black and Pearl Spartan Red. Both bikes feature gold shade on the forks, blacked-out headlight bezels, radiator shrouds, and exhaust end cans.
