Introducing the 2021 Honda CBR300R…

Honda’s CBR300R takes the lessons learned through decades of CBR refinement and applies them to a single-cylinder machine capable of conquering tight city streets or twisting back roads. A supersport machine aims to be lightweight, narrow and nimble; the CBR300R checks each of those boxes, enhancing the ownership experience through low operating costs and impressive fuel efficiency. Factor in the bike’s sleek styling, low seat height and available ABS, and the result is a machine suited for new riders, but with the pedigree of supersport legends.

The CBR300R’s single-cylinder power plant is engineered with the rider in mind. Lightweight, simple and fuel efficient, the engine features a broad powerband and confidence-inspiring fueling for easy rides in town and out on the road.

If you’ve got a soft spot for sportbike design and Grand Prix stylings, then the 2021 Honda CBR300R is your sweet spot between form and function. It’s narrow, light, and a total blast to ride around town and on twisty back roads. The single-cylinder engine offers great fuel economy, with smooth and friendly torque delivery. And the affordable cost and responsive handling makes it a terrific bike for first-time riders, and for those looking to grow their garage. There’s even a version available with our anti-lock braking system. Plus, this year the CBR300R brings hot new graphics in two color choices. Time to get riding!

2021 Honda CBR300R Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits



A single is the perfect choice for a bike like the CBR300R. It’s light, simple, fuel efficient and features a broad powerband with plenty of low-revving torque—just what you want in your first motorcycle, but geared for comfortable cruising at highway speeds.


Fuel injection means the CBR300R starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhance performance and fuel efficiency.




A low 30.7-inch seat height does more than help make sure the CBR300R fits a wide range of riders. It makes it easier to put your feet down at stoplights and in parking lots—a big confidence builder.




Because it features a counterbalancer, the CBR300R 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.


The CBR300R’s digital gauges with analog tachometer provide vital riding information in a styled, hi-tech instrumentation package featuring digital speedometer, fuel gauge, coolant temp, tripmeter/odometer and clock.


The CBR300R features a 296mm front and 220mm rear hydraulic disc for excellent stopping power and brake feel.




The CBR300R features full-cowl supersport styling and dual headlights, increasing aero efficiency and carrying the styling cues from our CBR-RR series.




A separate passenger seat, integrated grab rail and standard passenger footpegs mean you can take a friend along when you go riding—another example of the CBR300R’s versatility.


Removing the rear passenger seat provides a lockable area to throw a wallet, gloves or a spare set of sunglasses.




The CBR300R uses a single-shock preload-adjustable rear suspension that not only gives you a smooth ride but helps enhance handling as well, like some of our larger sport models.
