Aggressive Styling, approachable performance…
Honda’s CBR300R ABS delivers a giant dose of performance and fun way out of proportion to its engine size. Even experienced riders can’t seem to wipe the smile off their face after a ride on this modestly-sized machine. And one ride will tell you why. It’s the sporting member of our 300 lineup, with a little more bodywork. The single-cylinder engine is light and narrow, making it easier to sit on the bike and get your feet on the ground at stops. And the single-cylinder powerband with its wide torque spread is perfect for both in-town or freeway rides. The light weight makes it responsive on twisty roads. But maybe best of all, the CBR300R ABS offers excellent fuel efficiency, too.
This year the CBR300R ABS is available in two hot new color schemes: Bright Yellow and Matte Black, as well as Candy Orange and Matte Black. And the price is still lower than what you’d pay for a lot of used bikes.
With over 700 total MotoGP victories, Honda’s race-winning heritage stands far above any other manufacturer. Our superior engineering and technology put our GP bikes in the winners’ circle and and gives you all the performance you need for the street.
Light, Narrow, Low.
Because it’s a single-cylinder machine, the CBR300R ABS is narrow, with a low 30.7-inch seat height and light 357-pound curb weight. Need a lower seat? Just check out our Honda Genuine Accessories—we’ll get you hooked up.
The Power Of One.
The CBR300R ABS uses a single-cylinder engine with fuel injection, double-overhead cams and a counterbalancer. Sure, that’s tech talk, but the architecture offers some very real advantages, perhaps the most important of which is power delivery: a single offers the kind of torque and midrange power that’s well suited for all levels of riders.

The Honda Difference.
The CBR300R ABS offers the perfect balance of beginner-friendly features and the typical Honda refinement that more experienced riders will appreciate. Light weight, superb handling, excellent power, unmatched build quality and attention to detail—combine all that with Honda’s famous reliability and the CBR300R ABS is an instant winner.
2016 Honda CBR300R ABS www.Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits
Engine & Drivetrain
The 286 cc single-cylinder engine boasts dual overhead camshafts driven by a Hy-Vo-type silent chain, forked roller rocker arms, a compact four-valve cylinder head, a counterbalance shaft for smoothness, and liquid cooling for optimum performance and durability.
Light & compact
The light and compact engine contributes to the CBR300R’s impressive power-to-weight ratio, allowing it to compete with twin-cylinder bikes of similar displacement.
Easy inspection & maintenance
Shim-style valve adjustment allows easy inspection and maintenance, although with a recommended inspection interval of 48,000 km, you’ll ride a long, long time between any needed adjustments.
The engine countershaft sits lower than the mainshaft in a “stacked” formation to reduce the engine’s front-to-rear dimensions.
Easy city or highway ride
The engine produces a remarkably broad torque curve for strong low-rpm performance, and peak horsepower kicks in at 8,500 rpm – well below redline. This wide spread of power makes the CBR300R easy and confidence-inspiring to ride, in both stop-and-go situations and on the highway, while also returning impressive fuel economy.
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.
Enhanced rider 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.
Optimal performance in any weather
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. The PGM-FI system also incorporates an Idle Air Control Valve (IACV) to smooth responses to small changes in throttle position.
Quick acceleration for an edge
The six-speed transmission works in concert with the engine’s broad power delivery to produce quick acceleration plus excellent fuel economy during highway cruising. Final drive gearing is also taller than the previous model (CBR250R) to further improve efficiency at highway speeds.
Chassis & Suspension
All-new CBR1000RR inspired bodywork features dual headlights and colour-matched undercowl. The unmistakable CBR fuel tank and steeply raked tail complete the aggressive look.
Handles like a bigger bike
Full-sized 17-inch cast wheels with a 110/70 – 17 front tire and a 140/70 – 17 rear tire provide big-bike feel, grip and handling traits.
Sporty ergonomics create a balanced seating position for optimum control without compromising long-distance comfort.
Maneuver with confidence
Curb weight of only 161.9 kg (357 lbs.) gives the CBR300R outstanding maneuverability and helps instill rider confidence.
Impressive handling & comfort
Diamond-shaped twin-spar steel frame plus a 37 mm front fork and Pro-Link single-shock rear suspension provide sporty, confident handling and a comfortable ride.
Grab rails on the tail section are designed to fit gloved hands, giving passengers a dedicated handhold while riding two-up.
Easy balance at stops
A narrower, reshaped seat makes it easier to reach the ground.
Information at a glance
Multi-function digital instrument panel includes speedometer, tachometer, engine temperature display, fuel gauge, clock, odometer and trip meter.
