Honda unveils a stylishly stripped-back new 'sport naked' - the lightweight CB300R features a responsive 286cc liquid-cooled engine, six speed gearbox plus brand new chassis comprised of tubular/pressed steel frame.
Honda has a new presence in its line-up as of 2018: the CB300R. Part of a new ‘sport naked’ family – which includes the CB1000R and CB125R – it distills all of the excitement of two wheels into a distinctively-styled, lightweight form.
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, and is also a great introduction to Honda, with the brand’s engineering prowess, design philosophy and high build quality firmly on display.
Fun to ride, a joy to own and representing a bold new direction for smaller displacement machines, the CB300R has many of the premium features found on its larger capacity siblings. It also injects a fresh new style on to Europe’s city streets, with its ‘Neo Sports Café’ minimalist, bare-boned attitude shared with both its 1000 and 125cc stablemates.
