This lightweight machine isn’t a full-fairing sport bike and it’s not a standard naked-bike either. We call it a Neo-Sports Cafe: it’s a motorcycle built for the way we ride today. Fun to ride, a joy to own, the CB300R has many of the premium features found on its larger capacity siblings but in an ultra-lightweight and compact form, tipping the scales at just 143kg wet. It’s our lightweight star with a performance advantage. The pressed and tubular steel frame has a tuned rigidity balance that gives great feedback. The tapered rubber-mounted aluminium handlebar, LCD instrument display and full LED lighting exude quality and add to the pride of ownership. The CB300R puts certainly put the full force of Honda’s engineering prowess, design philosophy and high build quality firmly on display.

Anti-lock braking systemOur Anti-Lock Braking System can be a big help in making controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions, like on wet pavement or other compromised surfaces. It’s a great choice whether you’re using your new bike as a commuter or just riding it for fun, since it helps you stop with added confidence.
Compact engineThe CB300R’s compact 286cc DOHC four-valve, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine is a jewel with a free-revving, responsive nature. The engine also works extraordinarily well in real-world road-riding conditions, providing plenty of power both around town and out on the highway.
High-revving performanceBore and stroke are set at 76 × 63mm, with a compression ratio of 10.7:1. PGM-FI fuel injection—with 38mm throttle bore and a refined, straight-shot intake path—delivers crisp throttle response across the rev range.
Underslung exhaustThe CB300R underslung exhaust features a dual-chamber design with the outlet on the right side. The high-flow design contributes to an ultra-linear throttle response. The CB300R’s engine uses an intake and exhaust designed to reduce air resistance, contributing to more linear throttle response.
LCD instrumentsThe CB300R’s lightweight, full-function LCD display adds a premium feel, giving you readouts for engine rpm, speed and fuel level.
LED lighting packageAnother perfect example of classic styling with a modern touch, the CB300R features an all-LED lighting package, yet still sports a timeless round headlight lens. The LED taillight is the thinnest ever mounted on a Honda motorcycle.
Light and strong steel chassisThe concept behind a Neo-Sports Cafe machine strives for a perfect combination of handling, power, and athletic comfort. Great handling starts with a superior chassis, which is why the CB300R uses special frame construction designed to be both light and strong.
Inverted front forkThe CB300R’s 41mm inverted fork offers a smooth ride with compliant damping. The supple spring rate is just right for a bike this size.
Lightweight aluminum wheelsUnsprung weight—the tires, wheels, and brakes—are super-important in a sportbike. The CB300R’s lightweight aluminium wheels are a critical part of the bike’s responsive handling. Plus, they look great too.
Tuned steel swingarmIn addition to the CB300R’s chassis, the steel swingarm is designed to provide high longitudinal rigidity and control torsion without being harsh or heavy. This means you get confidence-inspiring feel and feedback, especially while cornering.
