RETRO RENEGADE.

2019 Honda CB300R:

There’s no concealing its raw temperament.

It’s an aggressive, bold new look that contrasts brushed alloy radiator shrouds with a blacked-out engine and an underslung, upswept exhaust. The all-new steel tubular frame and stout-looking, 41mm upside down front forks, provide agile handling as well as character. On the lighter side, headlight, taillight and indicators are all LED; this bike is made to be seen and stand out everywhere.

Bare essentials

The CB300R is fun, economical, easy to ride and maintain.

It’s an ideal machine for young riders to step up to, or for those looking to increase their experience and confidence on two wheels. The tough looks are not a shallow impression; the emphasis – like the CB1000R – is on metal. It’s a hard little character that can take on the city backstreets, as well as stretch its legs out on the open roads. What more do you need?

Pace and power

A small capacity machine that packs a real punch.

A compact, free-revving 286cc unit puts out 23.1kW peak power @8,500 rpm, and with 27.9 Nm of torque @7,500rpm, it’ll really get your pulse rising straight from the off. You better hang on too, because when you get that inviting, clear stretch of road in front of you, accelerating though the 6-speed gearbox will propel you 200 metres in 9.2 seconds.

Framework

Although design cues are taken from the CB1000R, the frame of CB300R has it own unique construction of pressed and tubular steel. It’s a hard look that also contributes to smooth handling; you can lean confidently into a fast sweeping bend, or turn the CB300R sharply around a tight street corner.

Introducing the latest member of our sportbike family: the all-new 2019 CB300R. And along with it, we’re embracing a concept that’s long been one of motorcycling’s best-kept secrets: the lightweight Neo-Sports Café motorcycle. Graceful, nimble, and most of all a blast to ride, the CB300R is full of innovative engineering to make riding fun. Plus, its styling offers a modern take on the timeless roadster design. Its single-cylinder engine makes it light and narrow, and the new chassis looks good and is the basis of its sure-footed handling. It’s even available with our optional anti-lock brakes. Best of all, the CB300R offers the kind of quality that you only get from a Honda, especially in this class. Ride it and see!

Great for beginners and experienced riders alike, the CBR300R packs a 300-class engine that delivers a strong spread of power. Thanks to a full sport fairing, dual headlights and stylish exhaust system, the CBR300R has the look of a serious sport bike. With strong power, nimble handling, an affordable price and low operating cost, the CBR300R—also available with ABS—makes every ride a fun one.

2019 Honda CB300R Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Performance

Compact Engine

The CB300R’s compact 286cc DOHC four-valve, liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine is a jewel that has won thousands of fans for its free-revving, responsive nature. The engine also works extraordinarily well in real-world road-riding conditions, providing plenty of power both around town and out on the highway.

High-Revving Performance

Bore and stroke are set at 76 x 63mm, with a compression ratio of 10.7:1. PGM-FI fuel injection—with 38mm throttle bore and a refined, straight-shot intake path—delivers crisp throttle response across the rev range.

Underslung Exhaust

The CB300R underslung exhaust features a dual-chamber design with the outlet on the right side. The high-flow design contributes to an ultra-linear throttle response.

Fine-Tuned Intake and Exhaust

The CB300R’s engine uses a new intake and exhaust design to reduce air resistance, contributing to more linear throttle response.

Handling

All-New Chassis

The concept behind a Neo-Sports Café machine strives for a perfect combination of handling, power, and athletic comfort. Great handling starts with a superior chassis, which is why the CB300R uses special frame construction designed to be both light and strong.

Tuned Steel Swingarm

In addition to the CB300R’s chassis, the steel swingarm is designed to provide high longitudinal rigidity and control torsion without being harsh or heavy. This means you get confidence-inspiring feel and feedback, especially while cornering.

Inverted Front Fork

The CB300R’s 41mm inverted fork offers a smooth ride with compliant damping. The supple spring rate is just right for a bike this size.

Perfect Balance

The CB300R features a balanced 49.6/50.4 front/rear weight bias. That means you’re set up for unmatched sport riding, balancing rear-wheel traction, front-end grip, and balanced braking forces.

Lightweight Construction

Since it’s over 30 pounds lighter than our own CB300F, the CB300R’s user-friendly, 313 pound curb weight (317 pounds with ABS) means this bike handles well, and is easier to balance at stoplights or in parking lots.

Lightweight Aluminum Wheels

Unsprung weight—the tires, wheels, and brakes—are super-important in a sportbike. The CB300R’s lightweight aluminum wheels are a critical part of the bike’s responsive handling. Plus, they look great too.

Engineering

Blacked-Out Hardware

Check out the blacked-out hardware; subtle touches like these compliment the CB300R’s traditional-meets-modern Neo-Sports Café styling.

Inverted Front Fork

The CB300R’s 41mm inverted fork offers a smooth ride with compliant damping. The supple spring rate is just right for a bike this size.

Efficient Design

The CB300R’s engine is designed with a minimum number of moving parts. Details like low-friction piston rings, high-density core radiator and iridium spark plug help increase fuel efficiency. Thanks in part to the weight-saving measures and the new intake layout, initial acceleration has been improved by 4% compared to the CB300F.

Powerful Brakes

The CB300R’s radial-mount four-piston Nissin front brake caliper clamps down onto a 296mm floating disc to provide optimum stopping power.

LCD Instruments

The CB300R’s lightweight, full-function LCD display adds a premium feel. It’s 60-percent thinner than previous designs, and gives you readouts for engine rpm, speed and fuel level.

LED Lighting Package

Another perfect example of classic styling with a modern touch, the CB300R features an all-LED lighting package, yet still sports a timeless round headlight lens. The LED taillight is the thinnest ever mounted on a Honda motorcycle!

Comfort

Comfortable Riding Position

The CB300R’s 31.5-inch seat height puts you in an engaged, athletic riding position. You can sit up and see what’s going on around you, and you’re ready to instantly respond to the road—just like your bike.

Passenger Ready

A separate passenger seat, integrated grab rail and passenger footpegs mean you can take a friend along when you go riding—another example of the CB300R’s versatility.

Counterbalance Shaft

Because it features a counterbalancer, the CB300R engine is a smooth runner. You get the narrow overall width and power advantages of a single along with the smoothness of a multi-cylinder bike.

Tapered Rubber-Mounted Handlebar

The CB300R uses a premium tapered handlebar. The center section where it clamps to the triplecrown measures 28.6mm, while it tapers to 22.2mm at the ends under the grips. The larger diameter of the clamped area gives you a direct connection to the bike and excellent steering feedback.
