Honda unveil a ‘baby Neo Sports Café Racer’ with their new CB300R

The new Honda CB300R slots right in-between the CB125R and the CB1000R.

This 300cc version is aimed straight at A2 license holders with 31BHP ready to be deployed from the single cylinder 286cc motor. It’s a handsome looking bike thanks to its Neo Sports Café inspired features.

Representing a major stepping-stone for any young or new rider, the CB300R is very much a first ‘big’ bike after a 125cc machine, offering impressive and engaging sensations from both engine and chassis without the weight, cost and licence implications of a larger capacity motorcycle. It’s the ideal machine for newer riders to develop their riding skills and enjoyment says Honda.
