2017 Honda CBR300R Buyer’s Guide | Specs & Price

2017 Honda CBR300R

The smallest of the CBR line, the 2017 Honda CBR300R gives you the styling and protection of a full fairing, along with the economical operating costs of a single-cylinder four-stroke.

Unlike the RR editions of CBRs, the 300R has handlebars that rise from the top of the triple clamp, making for a comfortably sporty ride. Range is over 200 miles thanks to a 3.4-gallon tank and EPA-estimated 71 mpg.

The ergonomics and seat make emptying the tank without stopping fully possible. A true lightweight, the CBR300R is stylish and practical in-town, as well as fun in the canyons—the twistier the road, the better.

Disc brakes at both ends—along with optional ABS—means the CBR300R stops with confidence. Perfect for new riders, it’s also fun for experienced riders with reasonable expectations.
