2017 Honda CB300F Buyer’s Guide: Specs & Price

2017 Honda CB300F

Simple and to the point, the 2017 Honda CB300F is stripped down to the basics of what a city and sport motorcycle needs to be.

With a single cylinder motor, no fancy electronics, minimal plastic, and uncomplicated suspension, the CB300F keeps costs down while allowing fun and utilitarian aspects free reign.

2017 Honda CB300F

The peppy oversquare motor is a fuel-injected DOCH design, so it makes the most of its 286cc. Handling is excellent, and the package weighs just 348 pounds (add six pounds if you want ABS).

The price did poke above $4k this year, but with a motor that gets 78 mpg, this is an inexpensive motorcycle to purchase and operate. Don’t expect to spend much on maintenance, as the CB300F is as reliable as it gets on two wheels.
