Supersport entry with serious cred
With both visual and performance reflections of Honda’s larger Supersport range, the single-cylinder CBR300R is a great entry into this market and comes with serious cred – endorsed by the reigning superbike champion.
With the CBR300R, Honda has continue to build on the solid CBR250R platform and delivered a fuel efficient, liquid-cooled engine boosted to 286cc capacity. A compact bike which is suited to a wide range of rider ability and within a good budget range for both initial purchase and fuel efficiency.
A great entry level bike to the supersport category.
Style and Performance
With style inspired by the larger CBR1000R, the sleek lines and angular shape of the CBR300R derive from the steeply raked rear seat and full fairing. The rider seat has been re-shaped to provide improved ground reach and with three colour schemes available – Gunpowder Black Metallic, Millennium Red and Tri-Colour, this is a sweet looking ride.
Learners and novice riders will appreciate the well-balanced nature of the CBR300R which instils confidence, especially in tight turning situations.
But it’s not all about the looks, with the larger capacity, Honda has greatly improved the acceleration and more efficient highway cruising is achieved thanks to the lengthening of the 6-speed gearbox ratio.
Great throttle response has been achieved via PGM fuel injection and the new muffler design enhances the style while singing a very pleasant exhaust note. With the CBR300R you can get the revs happening without having to break the speed limit. Important for city riders!
Precise Handling, Solid Feel
In the chassis, Honda has found the ideal balance between sporty and stability as a result of the steel diamond twin-spar frame. You can enjoy the exciting feel of sporty cornering and the confidence and surety from stability when you pick up speed.
Another key feature is the well-dampened, reactive suspension achieved via the telescopic forks and Pro-Link rear monoshock which gives the rider the feel expected.
The brake system is well-matched to chassis, power and suspension with both ABS and non-ABS options available.
Specs and Dimensions
The fuel tank capacity is 13 litres and with the claimed fuel efficiency of the engine, that should allow plenty of rides between fill-ups.
Dry weight is reported at 160 kg for non-ABS and 163 kg for ABS option, placing the CBR300R within the handling capacity for most sized riders.
With a price range from around $5700 – $6000, the Honda CBR300R is set to be a popular choice with both city commuters and those who enjoy a longer ride.
