The 2015 Honda CB300F is an Ideal, Affordable Entry Naked Sporty [Review]


The 2015 Honda CB300F is a lightweight and easily maneuverable small bike in a naked style that is fun, comfortable and that is capable of providing an ideal ride for beginners as well as more experienced riders. All that, and it’s extremely affordable, with a base price set at $3,999.

The Honda CB300F delivers the ideal solution for a variety of riding scenarios including tooling about town, dealing with a daily commute or taking off for a leisurely weekend sojourn.

The power source for the Honda CB300F is a 300-class engine that displaces 286cc and delivers smooth, responsive power over the complete rev range. It is a DOHC, 4-valve, liquid-cooled, four-stroke, single cylinder engine with programmed fuel injection, a 38mm throttle body and single right side exhaust, which was inspired by Honda’s stylish CBR500R, featuring a larger internal volume that not only looks good, but increases performance while emitting a pleasant, throaty exhaust thrum. The engine is derived from Honda’s CBR250R, but with a new crankshaft and connecting rod that creates a longer engine stroke, and adds 37cc. The PGM-FI fuel injection provides a constant crisp throttle response, and motive force is transmitted to the rear wheel through a six-speed sequential transmission, via an O-ring-chain final drive.

The CB300F’s suspension componentry consists of inverted 37mm forks up front with 4.65 inches of travel and a Pro-Link® single shock with five-position spring preload adjustability and 4.07 inches of travel out back. The bike rolls on Road winner rubber – 110/70-17 M/C forward and 140/70-17 aft, mounted on 5-“swirl”-spoke black painted alloy wheels. Slowing and reining the CB300F to a halt is a twin-piston caliper with a single 296mm disc in front and a single-caliper and 220mm disc in the rear.

The bike’s wheelbase measures 54.3-inches and the overall length is 80.1-inches. Caster angle or rake is 25 degrees and 30 minutes, and the trail is 3.9-inches. It tips the scales at 348 pounds. Fuel capacity is 3.4 gallons and the estimated fuel economy is 71 mpg, but may vary dictated by riding style, terrain and load.
