After launching the V302C urban cruiser motorcycle, Keeway India has now launched two new 300cc sporty bikes – the Keeway 300 N naked and the K300 R fully-faired motorcycle in the Indian market. While the Keeway K300 N is priced from Rs 2.65 lakh to Rs 2.85 lakh, the Keeway K300 R cost between Rs 2.99 lakh and Rs 3.20 lakh.
The Keeway K300 N naked motorcycle comes with an aggressive styling. On the other hand, the K300 R is a fully-faired motorcycle and features clip-on handlebars. The new motorcycles come with a underslung exhaust, all-LED lighting system and a digital instrument console. The new bikes are offered in 3 colour options – White, Red and Black. The naked bike shares styling cues from the CF Moto 300NK, which was on sale in India. Similarly, the K300 R has a similar design as the CF Motor 300SR on sale in international markets.
The new K300 N and the K300 R are powered by a 292.4cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine that churns out 27.5bhp at 8,750rpm and a peak torque of 25Nm at 7,000rpm. The engine is paired to a 6-speed gearbox with slipper clutch. Based on a steel trellis frame, the new motorcycles feature 37mm USD front forks and a monoshock at the rear.
For braking duties, the motorcycles come with a 4-piston caliper, 292mm front disc and a single-piston caliper, 220mm disc at the rear. It also gets dual-channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System) as standard. The motorcycle rides on 17-inch alloys shod with 110/70 and 140/60 section tyres at the front and rear respectively.
The naked motorcycle has a seat height of 795mm, while the K300 R fully-faired motorcycle has a seat height of 780mm. Both bikes have 1360mm wheelbase; however, the ground clearance of K300 N and K300 R stands at 150mm and 135mm respectively. The motorcycles have a fuel tank of 12-litres capacity.
