2016 Honda CB300F | Buyer's Guide
2016 Honda CB300F

The Honda CB300F is a naked version of the Moto3-derived (and faired) CBR300R. While a seat height over 30 inches may seem intimidating to some new riders, the CB300F is narrow and light weight, making it agreeable at stop signs.

The power is also delivered in an easily managed way, with enough power available on top to all you to safely ride on the freeway. With a 3.4-gallon fuel tank and an estimated 71 mpg, you should be able to go 200 miles between fill ups, assuming you don’t ride it like a Moto3 bike.
