Honda showcased a Cafe Racer concept called CB300 TT in 2016 Bankok Motor Show. Now, since the concept received a positive response from the crowd, Honda has confirmed the launch of a Cafe Racer based on the CB300 TT concept in 2020.

The CB300 TT Cafe Racer uses the same 286 cc liquid cooled single cylinder engine from CB300R. The engine pumps out 31 bhp and 27.5 Nm torque and is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. However, the gear ratios will be revised in order to achieve a higher top speed.

Moreover, the mainframe will be similar to that of CB300R but the sub-frame and swingarm might be different as Cafe Racer will have different dynamics. 41 mm USD forks will serve front suspension duties while a monoshock will take care of the rear. The production version will most probably get a single seat and a cowl will replace the pillion seat.
