At the India Bike Week 2021, Honda will showcase a new special edition motorcycle. It is also speculated that Honda will bring back the CB300R with the necessary BS6 updates.
The India Bike Week 2021 will commence tomorrow and manufacturers like Honda and Kawasaki will be present at the event. And to attract bikers, Kawasaki will showcase its recently launched Z650 RS, a retro-styled motorcycle at its stand.
Honda Two-wheelers, on the other hand, will pull the wraps off its new Anniversary Edition of the H’ness CB350. The new edition is likely to have a new colour scheme and a few decals on the body panels. The mechanicals will likely be the same as before, with suspension and braking components being carried over.
In other news, Honda is likely to bring back the CB300R street-naked motorcycle in the BS6 avatar, alongside the H’Ness CB350 Anniversary Edition. The motorcycle will continue its rivalry with the popular KTM 390 Duke. Other motorcycles in the segment include BMW G 310 R and CFMoto 300NK.
We’re expecting Honda to bring back the CB300R with no changes to its features list, cycle parts, or styling. Despite the engine being tuned to meet the new emission norms, the power figures are likely to be unchanged.
Interestingly, the BS4 Honda CB300R (now discontinued) was sold in India via the CKD route, which meant a premium price tag. It is speculated that Honda will locally produce the CB300R, which will help the makers price it aggressively in the segment. We will find out the details tomorrow, i.e December 4, 2021. So, stay tuned.
