Strip motorcycling down to its bare essentials and often less equals more. Honda has long understood this, and for 18YM created the CB300R. Part of the Neo Sports Café family – which includes the flagship CB1000R, A1 licence-friendly CB125R and recently updated CB650R four cylinder middleweight – it distils all of the excitement of two wheels into 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 as it does engaging response and sensations from both engine and chassis without the weight, cost and licence implications of a larger capacity motorcycle. It’s also a great introduction to Honda, with the brand’s engineering prowess, design philosophy, premium equipment and high build quality firmly on display. Conversely, the CB300R also offers an attractive proposition for experienced riders looking to downsize.
Fun to ride, easy and affordable to own, the CB300R receives some major upgrades for 22YM, including high-quality front suspension, assist/slipper clutch and EURO5 compliance for the engine. Just as before, it brings unique style to Europe’s city streets, with a bare-boned attitude that is guaranteed to turn heads.
