Honda has revealed its lightly updated 2022 CB300R LAMS naked bike which benefits from beefier upside-down forks and a slipper clutch, among other changes.

Local pricing and availability has yet to be confirmed, however, the current model is still on sale from $7738 rideaway.

For 2022, the Honda CB300R adopts 41mm Showa forks borrowed from its larger-capacity CB650R sibling, while the rear is suspended with a preload adjustable monoshock.

The bike is motivated by the same 286cc single-cylinder engine as before, although it has been adjusted to meet Euro5 emissions standards, and generates 23kW and 27.5Nm.

This engine is matched with a six-speed gearbox that now features an assist-and-slipper clutch.

Also new is a more comfortable seat, a revised LCD display, full LED lighting and new colour schemes: Pearl Dusk Yellow and Matte Pearl Agile Blue.

The Honda CB300R continues to tip the scales at a healthy 144 kilograms, with a 10-litre fuel tank and approachable seat height of 799mm.

Honda’s CB300R LAMS bike sits below the CB650R in its retro-style naked bike range, with the full-sized CB1000R no longer available in Australia.

The CB300R competes with the likes of the KTM 390 Duke, Yamaha MT-03 and BMW G 310 R, among others.
