Honda will bring the all-new CB300F naked bike to Canada this fall.
Honda has had a successful run with the CBR250R sport bike, introducing new riders to motorcycling at a bargain price and with great performance. It was recently announced that the 250R would be replaced by the CBR300R, with a larger-displacement engine to better compete with the Ninja 300.
Honda has one upped Kawasaki with the introduction of the 2015 CB300F, a naked variation of the CBR300R. The engine uses the same bore as the CBR250R engine but features an 8mm longer stroke, increasing displacement to 286cc from 249cc.
The added displacement boosts output by 17 percent. The riding position is more upright than on the R model, and claimed wet weight is 158 kg, 8 kilos litter than the CBR250R, which should make the CB300F a great urban scrambler.
ABS will be standard and it will only be available in white. Pricing will be released closer to the bike’s launch later this year. You can find out more at honda.ca.
