"The Honda CBR300R packs World Superbike looks with mid-range power and torque for twisty-road playtime. The narrow single-cylinder machine has a low 30.7-in seat height for shorter riders, with a MotoGP-esque 357-lb curb weight.
The CBR300R is powered by a six-speed 286cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder four-stroke engine. The Pro-Link single shock on the rear gives five positions of spring preload adjustability to accomodate all riders and road conditions.
Additional features include computer-controlled digital transistorized ignition, an estimated 71 mpg, programmed fuel injection, and optional ABS.
The Honda CBR300R is priced at $4,499 and comes in Red/Black. The ABS model is priced at $4,999."
“Perhaps the ideal sportbike for the new rider. It offers slick, precise controls, short gearing for easy getaways, a compact seating position for smaller riders, and a manageable seat height.” Blake Conner - Editor. Cycle World Magazine
