This lightweight machine isn’t a full-fairing sport bike and it’s not a standard naked-bike either. We call it a Neo-Sports Café: it’s a motorcycle built for the way we ride today. Fun to ride, a joy to own, the CB300R has many of the premium features found on its larger capacity siblings but in an ultra-lightweight and compact form, tipping the scales at just 143kg wet. It’s our lightweight star with a performance advantage. The pressed and tubular steel frame has a tuned rigidity balance that gives great feedback. The tapered rubber-mounted aluminium handlebar, LCD instrument display and full LED lighting exude quality and add to the pride of ownership. The CB300R puts certainly put the full force of Honda’s engineering prowess, design philosophy and high build quality firmly on display.
The CB300R tips the scales at just 143kg wet and gives Honda’s new lightweight star a performance advantage. Mix in a free-revving 286cc liquid-cooled single cylinder engine, plus a unique new style and presence and the CB300R’s intention to excite and inspire young riders is clear to see.
A brand new frame mixes pressed and tubular steel for a tuned rigidity balance that gives great feedback. The CB300R also features 41mm USD forks with radial-mount 4-piston caliper, hub-less floating front disc, IMU-based ABS and Dunlop radial tyres.
Valuable features more usually found on much larger machines such as the tapered rubber-mounted aluminium handlebar, LCD instrument display and full LED lighting, exude quality and add to the pride of ownership.

Chassis / Styling
• 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 swingarm
• Radial-mount 4-piston caliper and hubless 296mm floating front disc
• Full LED lighting and LCD instrumentation
• IMU-based ABS
The CB300R’s frame – which helps underpin its minimalist style, drawn on the same Neo Sports Café lines as the new 2018 CB1000R – is constructed with tubular and pressed steel; the swingarm is manufactured from steel plate, irregularly shaped in cross-section. Both are designed to achieve high longitudinal rigidity and control torsion from wheel deflection without excess rigidity or weight.
