Urban Street Fighter…
The best part of any motorcycle has never been the bells and whistles. It’s been the freedom and the exhilaration that comes with riding. And in fact, plenty of riders feel that less is more, that a simple bike done right gives you the purest riding experience of all.
That’s one of the reasons we built the CB300F ABS. It’s a great machine, loaded with features, but in a lighter, smaller, simpler package. It’s a great choice for the urban rider, as a first bike, or really for anyone who wants a great motorcycle.
Like our CBR300R, the CB300F ABS uses a totally up-to-date single-cylinder engine. The fuel injection system and electric start make it convenient, but the best feature of all may be its combination of enthusiastic power delivery along with awesome fuel efficiency. Practical meets performance—it’s not an either/or proposition with the CB300F ABS—you get to have your cake and eat it too. And with its low price, you’ll be able to afford lots of cake.
Light is Right. And So is Narrow.
Thanks to it’s single–cylinder engine configuration, the CB300F ABS is super narrow. Combine that with its low 30.7–inch seat height and light 348–pound curb weight, and you have the recipe for a bike that offers excellent maneuverability in the city. Plus, putting your feet down in parking lots or at stoplights is a lot easier.
Hondas are famous for their engines, and we’ve given the CB300F ABS a great one. First, the facts: it’s a single–cylinder with fuel injection, double–overhead cams and a counterbalancer. But here’s the genius part: Because it’s a single, it offers the kind of torque and midrange power that’s well suited for all levels of riders.
A Winner at the Fuel Pump, too.
The CB300F ABS rocks when it comes time to fill up. With a fuel economy estimate of 78 MPG,* you’re more likely to be laughing at high gas prices. The CB300F ABS can carry a passenger and is freeway legal. Get all the versatility you need.

Your actual mileage will vary depending on how you ride, how you maintain your vehicle, weather, road conditions; tire pressure, installation of accessories, cargo, rider and passenger weight, and other factors.

2016 Honda CB300F ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Engine & Drivetrain
Broad power delivery
The six-speed transmission works in concert with the engine’s broad power delivery to produce quick acceleration and excellent fuel economy around town. Taller final drive gearing further improves fuel efficiency during highway cruising.
Crisp throttle response
Honda’s Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) continuously monitors several variables to ensure the correct fuel mixture for the current riding and atmospheric conditions. The system delivers optimal performance and remarkably crisp throttle response over a wide range of operating conditions, plus improved fuel economy.
Less vibration – more comfort
A gear-driven counterbalance shaft helps quell engine vibration for enhanced rider comfort. It’s located so close to the crankshaft that the balancer weight passes between the two crank weights to keep the engine as compact as possible while improving mass centralization.
The crankshaft runs in plain bearings for quieter operation and the big end of the connecting rod spins in a needle bearing, both contributing to the engine’s high-performance credentials.
Frugal on fuel
The engine produces a remarkably broad torque curve for strong low-rpm performance, the wide spread of power makes the CB300FA easy and confidence-inspiring to ride, in both stop-and-go situations and on the highway, while also returning impressive fuel economy.
Compact engine design
The engine countershaft sits lower than the mainshaft in a “stacked” formation to reduce the engine’s front-to-rear dimensions.
Shim-style valve adjustment allows easy inspection and maintenance, although with extended inspection intervals you’ll ride a long, long time between adjustments.
Light & nimble
The light and compact engine contributes to the CB300FA’s nimble steering, intuitive handling and impressive power-to-weight ratio, allowing it to compete
