Honda CB300F vs BMW G 310 R: Looks
The CB300F looks like a beefier version of the Hornet 2.0. Now, this can be a good thing as well as a bad thing. For starters, the Hornet 2.0 is a good-looking motorcycle. However, Honda has not made any significant design changes to make the CB300F stand out in traffic. The motorcycle comes with an LED headlamp in the front, a muscular fuel tank with tank shrouds and a sleek rear section with a fat tyre.
BMW stands out on the road because of its livery and the fact that there is not a lot of them on the roads. What also helps is the sporty design, sleek headlamp and tail lamp, minimal body panels and a muscular fuel tank. What particularly stands out on the motorcycle is the alloy wheels that are finished in red.
