Honda CBR 300R 2014 Specifications – More Details Emerge


We recently covered the new Honda CBR 300R, which was showcased at the  China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition in Chongqing, China. The spec sheet for the bike has been released and we now have a better idea of the bike’s performance capabilities.

The CBR 300R is going to propelled by a 286 cc single cylinder engine and will be able to generate a max power of 30.4 bhp at 8500 rpm with a peak torque capability of 27 Nm at 7250 rpm. It has a 76 mm bore, and  63 mm stroke length. The CBR 250R also had a powerplant with a 76 mm stroke and a 55 mm bore; it seems safe to conclude that the 300R’s engine is based off of it. DOHC design has been integrated to the cylinder head, and Honda’s fabled PGM-FI is present to keep a check on the usage of precious fuel.

Let’s contrast these specs with those of the CBR 250R. The 250R produces 26 bhp of peak power at 8500 rpm, and 22.9 Nm of peak twist-force at 7000 rpm. The CBR300R falls behind the Ninja 300′s 296 cc with a single-pot 286 cc engine. The Ninja 300 has the potential to belt out a peak power of 39 bhp and 27.1 Nm of peak torque.

The CBR300R  tips the scales with a kerb weight of 164 kilograms,3 kilos lighter than the C-ABS fitted CBR250R. Pit it against the Green Assassin, and we have data that is sure to leave some of you bewildered. The 300R is a whole 10 kgs lighter than the Ninja 300, which weighs in at 174 kilograms, when all the consumables have been mounted. Thus, it is hard to come to a conclusion about which bike comes out tops until we actually get our hands on the 300R.

A comparison

The bike will be shod with the same wheels as the ones on the CBR250R. The front will have 110/70-17 tires and 140/70-17 in the rear. It is expected that both will be tubeless tyres, another feature that it has in common with the 250R. More in-depth details such as fuel-tank capacity and headlamp details haven’t been revealed.

The CBR 300R is being seen as Honda’s attempt to cash in on the holiday season cheer. The 300R hasn’t fallen far from the apple tree and shows characteristics of its CBR genes. It will be interesting to see if the upgraded features and updated price tag are able to bring buyers to the showrooms.
