2020 Honda CB300R Buyer’s Guide: Specs & Prices

2020 Honda CB300R

The smallest member of Honda’s Neo-Sports Café family returns, and this year ABS is standard. The 2020 Honda CB300R remains a fantastic way to get around town for under $5k. It is powered by a single-cylinder DOHC motor—the same engine found in the Honda Rebel 300, but tuned for sportier performance.

2020 Honda CB300R Buyer's Guide: Specs & PricesIf you’re an aggressive rider, the 2020 Honda CB300R can surprise larger motorcycles in tight twisties due to its 53.3-inch wheelbase and a feather-like curb weight of 317 pounds. The Dunlop Sportmax GPR-300 tires are up to the demands of the lightweight chassis, giving riders confidence to push just that much harder in the corners.

When it comes time to slow down, the single 296mm disc is aided by ABS in case the rider’s right hand gets a bit too aggressive.

For commuting, the Honda CB300R knife through traffic with abandon. It’s narrow, and the smooth power delivery keeps the rider out of trouble in confined urban conditions. Although the motor displaces just 286cc, it has enough power to do battle with traffic on urban freeways. To give the CB300R stability at highway speeds, the rake is a generous 24.7 degrees.

The 2020 Honda CB300R is an excellent first-motorcycle for an emerging rider, yet an experienced motorcyclist can have all kinds of fun with this lightweight single. The price is unchanged for 2020, and the only available color is Matte Pearl Blue.
