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.

Key Features:

  • Industrial minimal styling takes cues from the 2018 CB1000R
  • Lightweight frame mixes tubular and pressed steel
  • 41mm USD front forks and irregular-cross section steel swing arm
  • Radial-mount 4-piston calliper and hubless 296mm floating front disc
  • Full LED lighting and LCD instrumentation
  • IMU-based ABS
  • Responsive single-cylinder DOHC 4-valve engine
  • 23.1kW peak power/27.5Nm peak torque
  • Under slung side-exit exhaust
  • 6-speed gearbox
