Honda has launched the 2023 CB300R in India with a price tag of Rs 2.40 lakh (ex-showroom). It is surprising that the bike maker has slashed the price by Rs 37,000 of the streetfighter with the latest update. This could be to sustain the stiff competition in the segment and its rivals along with other more powerful and feature-rich motorcycles are available at a much lower price than the previous CB300R, such as the Triumph Speed 400 costs Rs 2.33 lakh (ex-showroom), while the prices of the Harley-Davidson X440 start from Rs 2.39 lakh (ex-showroom). With this, Honda is likely to expect to attract new customers and grow the sales.
