The new CB300R closely resembles its liter class sibling. It gets a circular LED headlight at front, and a chiselled fuel tank and split seats at the sides. The bike’s tank cowl is similar to the CB100R and even the the inclination of its exhaust canister has been borrowed.

What isn’t similar, among other obvious things, is the sporty tyre-hugging number plate holder and single-sided swing arm. The bikes underside isn’t completely exposed either.

An informative digital instrument console is provided.
