The new 2015 Honda CB300F is Here. The CB300F entry-level street bike is the naked version of the Honda CBR300R.
The 2015 Honda CB300F shares the same chassis and is also powered by CBR300R’s 286cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine with fuel-injected, double-overhead cams and a counterbalancer. The engine itself is a stroked version of the engine found on the popular CBR250R (the piston stroke has been increased to 63mm from 55mm). It has a claimed fuel economy of 71 mpg.
Besides the naked styling, the 2015 Honda CB300F differentiates itself from its R sibling with its more upright seating position, thanks to its taller handlebar mount. Since the CB300F has no fairing, the bike has a claimed curb weight of only 348 lb., which is 9 lb. lighter than the CBR300R.
Like its faired CBR300R sibling, the 2015 CB300F uses the same 37mm telescopic fork with 4.65 inches of travel up front and a Pro-Link rear shock with 4.07 inches of travel and five-position spring preload adjustability. It also features a single headlight and radiator shrouds, 3.4-gallon fuel tank, and Full LCD multi-function digital meter.
The CB300F will be available this fall in the U.S. with no anti-lock brakes only and it will be available in only one color: Red. 2015 Honda CB300F MSRP: $3999.
