Honda has no plan to separate the motorcycle business, snubs as rumour

  • Honda aims to go fully electric in the motorcycle segment by 2040.
Honda CB300F also comes with a USB Type C charging socket and Honda Selectable Torque Control which is a traction control system. 
Braking duties are done by disc brakes in the front as well as at the rear. There is dual-channel ABS also on offer. 
At the side, there is a saree guard that is not as bad looking as other motorcycles. There is also a belly pan underneath the engine.  
The fuel tank has a muscular design with tank shrouds. The seat has a split design and is quite wide. 
The exhaust has a stubby design and it sounds decent. 
There are up-side down forks in the front with a golden finish. 
The quality of switch gear could have been better considering that CB300F is being sold through BigWing dealerships. 
The engine is a 293 cc, oil-cooled unit that produces 24.2 hp of max power and 25.6 Nm of peak torque. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox with slip and assist clutch. 
The instrument cluster gets 5-step brightness adjustability. It can be a bit hard to read because of the glare. 
The rear tyre is wide with a 150 section that gives a nice stance to the CB300F. 
The design of the motorcycle looks similar to the Hornet 2.0.

Earlier on Tuesday, Honda also said that it plans to launch more than ten electric motorcycles globally by 2025 in an attempt to achieve carbon neutrality for motorcycles by the 2040s. Honda dominates the global motorcycle business but faces challenges in promoting higher-priced electric variants in developing economies, claimed the report. It stated that Honda finds the idea challenging to offer higher priced and heavier electric motorcycles in the developing markets, where motorcycles are in demand as compared to developed economies. With the higher-priced motorcycles, the entry-level barrier for consumers will be higher.

In India, Honda is currently the second largest two-wheeler manufacturer. But, despite having a stronghold in the market with its range of motorcycles and ICE-powered scooters, the company is yet to launch any electric vehicle. Some of Honda's rivals in markets such as India, including TVS Motor Company and Bajaj Auto have already introduced their electric products like TVS iQube and Bajaj Chetak. They have compelled the Japanese two-wheeler and car manufacturing company in introducing battery-powered motorcycles and scooters.
