The 2015 Honda CBR300R, which was first revealed at last year’s CIMAMotor show in China and also at EICMA in Italy, is now up on American Honda’s website. American Honda also has confirmed that the 2015 CBR300R will be arrived in American showrooms in August.
The 2015 Honda CBR300R replaces the CBR250R. The new CBR300R is powered by the CBR250R’s DOHC liquid-cooled fuel-injected single engine with 76 mm bore, but the stroke lengthened to 63mm from 55 mm and the displacement has been increased to 286cc. As the result, the Honda CBR300R has a total output of 30hp and 20 lbs.ft of torque, returning 71 mpg. Furthermore, the 2015 Honda CBR300R gets an updated PGM-FI fuel injection system.
Visually, the 2015 Honda CBR300R has a new fairing design with a dual headlamp instead of the 250’s single Y-shaped light. Its exhaust is different from its 250 siblin- and the mirror stalks are shorter than on the CBR250R. The new Honda CBR300R has a low 30.7-inch seat height and light 357-pound curb weight.
The brake systems and suspension remain unchanged. It uses the same 37mm telescopic fork that offers 4.65-inches of travel and Pro-Link single rear shock with 4.07-inches of travel and five-position preload adjustability. Breaking duties handled by a 296 mm front disc gripping a two-piston caliper and a 220mm rear disc with a single-piston caliper.
In the US, the 2015 Honda CBR300R will be offered in four color options: the tricolor Pearl White/Red/Blue, Red, Black, and a new Matte Black Metallic with shinning Yellow striping. MSRP pricing for the 2015 Honda CBR300R and the 2015 Honda CBR300R ABS are set at $4,399 and $4,899, respectively.
