    Honda CBR300R Announced - Motorcycle USA

    "Honda made a short but exciting announcement at the China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition in Chongqing, China concerning its smallest sport bike. The show was used as the world premier for the CBR300R, which Honda describes as a global model. Details are sparse other than it will be produced in Thailand.

    The headlight area resembles the CBR500R with two separate lights and the side fairings are also changed up in comparison to the current 2013 CBR250R.

    No details were released on the how the displacement will be increased, whether it be a larger bore or longer stroke or perhaps a combination of both. What we do know is that the Kawasaki Ninja 300 is undoubtedly the target with this change. Stay tuned for more info as it becomes available. "




    Interesting times. Awaiting Ninja 300 vs CBR 300 shootout.

    Silly cunz stroked it instead of boring it.

    286cc with a bore of 76mm and 63mm stroke.
    CBR250 has 76mm bore, but with a 55mm stroke.
    the only thing the 250 suffered is running out of revs.

    The rest is all the same good running gear and light weight etc.

    Kawasaki started this silly 300 shit, now sadly Honda follows.
    Hope Yamaha and KTM keep it to 250cc

                yamaha have the FZ6r and the MT03 for lams.

                Kawasaki and Yamaha have been good at reading the market in the last few years, extending their range and keeping their bikes fairly simple. Honda on the other hand are trying to be innovative with engines and quirky designs but missing the mark. I'm referring to their naked/ touring range... bland and boring. The exception being the CBR500.

                          “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

                            lol what's the story with big bike riders getting butt hurt over new learner bikes??

                            Unfortunately not all learners need massive amounts of power like you guys did!

                            I think the 300's have a place and most beginners and even some older riders who don't want a 600 - 1000 would be more than happy with the power from a 300.

                              It must be hard for the bike manufacturers to produce bikes that will cover every market...

                              If everywhere around the world had LAMS then the ideal would be to get the bike right on the power to weight limit...

                              Keep the weight as low as possible without getting into expensive weight saving, then add power up to the limit...
