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, 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.

Styling and equipment

  • Unique Neo Sports Café style puts the hardware on display
  • New seat material improves comfort
  • Full LED lighting and LCD dash with updated gear position indicator


  • Responsive single-cylinder DOHC 4-valve engine
  • 9kW peak power/27.5Nm peak torque with EURO5 compliance
  • Redesigned underslung side-exit exhaust
  • Assist/slipper clutch now managing 6-speed gearbox

Light weight – the CB300R tips the scales at a wet weight of just 144kg – gives Honda’s small-bore superstar an immediate performance advantage. Mix in a free-revving 286cc liquid-cooled single cylinder engine, with new assist/slipper clutch and EURO5 compliance for 22YM, plus the unique Neo Sports Café naked bike presence and the CB300R has the perfect formula to excite and inspire young riders.

The frame mixes pressed and tubular steel for a tuned rigidity balance that gives great feedback. For 22YM the CB300R now features, as standard equipment, 41mm Showa Separate Function front Fork Big Piston (SFF-BP) USD forks (the same high-quality specification as fitted to the CB650R, with spring rate and damping changes)  as well as a radial-mounted 4-piston caliper, hubless floating front disc, IMU-controlled ABS and radial tyres.

A tapered steel handlebar, updated LCD instrument display and full LED lighting exude quality and add to pride of ownership.


The CB300R’s compact, 286cc DOHC 4-valve liquid-cooled single cylinder engine is a diminutive jewel that has won many fans for its free-revving and responsive nature. And while it may pump adrenaline as revs rise it’s also an engine that works well in real-world road riding conditions, around town or out on the highway. Peak power of 22.9kW arrives @ 9,000rpm, with peak torque of 27.5Nm delivered @ 7,750rpm.


An assist/slipper clutch allows super-smooth shifts and manages rear wheel ‘hop’ on rapid downshifting and hard braking. The 6-speed gearbox offers an even spread of gears for strong acceleration and the gear change mechanism employs an adjustable rose joint linkage.

Bore and stroke is set at 76 x 63mm, with compression ratio of 10.7:1. PGM-FI fuel injection – with 38mm throttle bore and straight-shot intake path – delivers crisp throttle response across the rev range. For EURO5 compliance – alongside an OBD2-compatible crank sensor – the underslung exhaust mid-section has been redesigned and incorporates a new larger catalyser. The right-side exit muffler also features a new, simpler internal structure.

To reduce maintenance costs – an important factor for younger riders – the engine is also designed with the minimum number of moving parts. Details like the low-friction piston rings, high-density core radiator and iridium spark plug help increase fuel efficiency.
