CBR300R / Overview

The development approach for the CBR300R took two avenues: more power and torque and a much stronger CBR identity, with stronger visual echoes of its larger capacity siblings, giving a more direct taste of the CBR brand itself.

Firstly, the liquid-cooled engine is now 286cc, achieved through a longer stroke. It has also received upgrades to take full advantage of the increased power, torque and vibration that the larger capacity brings. Work has centred on the engine’s throttle response and power delivery, while a new CBR500R-style exhaust is both an aesthetic and functional upgrade.

The CBR1000RR was design inspiration for the CBR300R’s new look. Dual headlights closely mimic the bigger bike and aggressive styling for the fairing, fuel tank and seat unit are unmistakably CBR. The undercowl is also colour-matched, adding a premium feel.

Compared to larger capacity twin-cylinder machines, the CBR300R is a more compact, lighter and more manageable package for the less experienced rider, with significantly lower purchase and running costs complementing its flexible and accessible performance.
