One month after confirming the new CBR300R as a U.S. model, Honda has announced a naked version, the CB300F.
Available this Fall, the CB300F carries similar engine and chassis specifications with the CBR300R, but comes in at a claimed 9 pounds lighter and the price is lower at a U.S. MSRP of $3,999. This is $400 less than the $4,399 non-ABS CBR300R. It does not appear that there will be an ABS version of the CB300F available in the United States at launch. Follow this link to Honda’s web site for additional details and specifications. The bike will only be available in Red (shown). Here is a short summary of the new model from Honda:
CB300F – This light and nimble-handling naked bike offers plenty of fun for motorcyclists—experienced riders and those new to the sport. Featuring a 300-class engine, the new CB300F carries a dash of attitude along with its versatile creds. Whether you’re commuting, zipping around town or headed out for a weekend ride, its roomy ergonomics, great handling and broad powerband make every ride a blast. Thanks to its affordable price tag, adding on a few Honda accessories is easy—a simple way to give it that extra bit of flair and make it uniquely your own. For example, a lower and narrower seat can be selected to create an easier reach to the ground for those with a shorter inseam. Price: $3999; Availability: Fall
