The new Keeway K300 R is priced from Rs 2.99 lakh onwards ex-showroom and is available in three variants differentiated by their colour options: Glossy White, Glossy Red, and Glossy Black. All three versions have the same equipment, features, and carry the same engine, while their pricing is as follows.

Glossy RedRs 3.10 lakh
Glossy BlackRs 3.20 lakh

Keeway K300 R – Design and dimension

The Keeway K300 R features a full fairing and clip on’s, giving the rider a more committed position. The split headlight design adds to the sportiness of the motorcycle, while the under-belly exhaust gives it a clean look. The high-set rear end is not the apt motorcycle to carry a pillion on regular basis, but the K300 R is a great alternative to those looking for a 300 cc fully faired motorcycle.
