Accessorized Honda CB300R Neo Sport Cafe makes global debut
The motorcycle is powered by a 286 cc single-cylinder engine.
PT Astra-Honda, the Japanese two-wheeler maker’s Indonesian subsidiary, has showcased an accessorized version of CB300R Neo Sports Cafe at Indonesia International Motor Show 2018. The accessorizes are aimed at heightening the CB300R’s cafe racer appeal.
The bike on display features embellishments in the form of sporty decals, red-finished handlebar, a tinted visor above the headlamp, matte grey paint job, radiator cover, and silver crankcase protector. Rest of the motorcycle has been left untouched.
The naked motorcycle is powered by a single-cylinder liquid-cooled 286 cc motor which dishes out 30.9 PS at 8,500 rpm and 27.9 Nm of torque at 7,500 rpm. The motor is paired with a 6-speed transmission. The stock bike tips the scales at 143 kg. With a fuel tank capacity of 10 litres, the manufacturer claimed range stands at 300 km.
The upmarket street fighter is based on a steel chassis which is suspended by means of 41 mm inverted telescopic front fork and 7-step adjustable rear monoshock. Braking system consists of a disc at each wheel, complete with dual-channel ABS that benefits from Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU).
The Honda CB300R Neo Sport Cafe also offers fully digital dashboard which incorporates gear shift indicator in addition to the usual instruments. Other noteworthy features include pressed steel swing arm, LED headlamp and taillight, etc.
It’s unclear if the CB300R is in Honda Motorcycle Scooter Africa’s (HMSI) product pipeline but it sure looks like a good fit for our market, especially if assembled locally.
