2021 Honda CB300R Buyer’s Guide: Price, Specs, and Photos

2021 Honda CB300R

Light weight, a torquey single-cylinder powerplant, and compact dimensions make the 2021 Honda CB300R a highly capable urban motorcycle. The upright standard is part of Honda’s Neo-Sports Café line of naked sportbikes with retro-futuristic styling, and it possesses the ability to do everything from commuting to canyon strafing.

2021 Honda CB300R Buyer's Guide: MSRP, Price, For Sale

Thanks to a 6-speed transmission, a counterbalancer, and a 296mm front disc brake (with Nissin caliper and ABS standard), the 2021 Honda CB300R can handle freeway speeds admirably. The Dunlop Sportmax GRP-300 tires are not upset by freeway grooves, perform impressively in the twisties, and have a long tread life. The friendly power doled out by the short-stroke DOHC thumper is equally at home helping the CB300R thread its way through traffic.

Despite an MSRP below $5k, the CB300R does not have a budget appearance—the lighting is all-LED, the latest blacked-out styling, and the wheels are aluminum unit. Although the suspension does not have damping adjustments, the shock benefits from a performance-enhancing linkage system. You won’t find any adjustable rider aids, though they aren’t crucial on a small displacement motorcycle.

Certainly designed for a new rider, the 2021 Honda CB300R delivers the performance needed to keep a new rider entertained for a while before feeling the need to upgrade.
