First Look: 2015 Honda CB300F

It has been a while since Honda has offered a small displacement naked upright sport bike, and the new 2015 Honda CB300F ends that drought. Heavily based on the CBR300R faired sport bike, with which it shares a chassis, engine, and many body parts (though sans fairing), the 2015 Honda CB300F brings the price down to $3999.

Powered by a liquid-cooled 286cc DOHC single-cylinder motor with roots in Moto3 racing, the CB300F weighs only 348 pounds and functions as a little brother to the CB500F twin, with which it shares considerable styling cues. Honda promotes the 2015 CB300F as being a motorcycle for “commuting, zipping around town or head[ing] out for a weekend ride.”

Although the seat on the 2015 Honda CB300F is naturally low, Honda will be offering a lower, narrower seat option to entice newer riders.
