The latest Honda CB300R in Europe gets a new paint scheme, as well as new features and a more powerful engine.
Honda has unveiled the updated CB300R motorcycle for 2022, which includes some notable changes. A new paint scheme, as well as new features and a more powerful engine, have been added to the new motorcycle. In its latest incarnation, the company’s new neo-retro street motorcycle has made its debut in European markets.
After being out of production for over a year, the motorcycle has been reintroduced to the European market.
The new CB300R has been introduced with subtle styling updates that give the bike a more modern appearance.
The neo-retro design of the motorcycle is retained, but a new black paint scheme is introduced, which appears to be similar to the Matte Steel Black shade offered on the India-spec model. A black headlamp bezel and darker radiator cowls have also been added to the motorcycle. Furthermore, its exhaust could have been slightly more angular than previously observed.
Pearl Dusk Yellow and Matt Pearl Agile Blue (both new for 2022), Matt Gunpowder Black Metallic, and Candy Chromosphere Red are the four colour options now available for the motorcycle.
The new model’s key features include a dual-bar LED headlamp, LED taillight and turn indicators, and a fully digital instrument console with a negative LCD display. The motorcycle, on the other hand, continues to be devoid of any connectivity features.
A newly updated 286cc DOHC 4-valve liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine remains at the heart of the motorcycle.
The overall output of this motor has increased to 31.1 bhp at 9,000rpm, up from 30.4 bhp at 8,000rpm previously. At 27.5 Nm, the overall torque output remains unchanged. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with an assisted slipper clutch for smoother and faster gear shifts.
