2015 Honda CB300F | First Look

Honda expands their 2015 small-bike line with a naked version of the CBR300R

One thing that Honda seems well aware of these days is the need to nurture the entry-level market with beginner-oriented bikes like the CBR250R, the step-up 500cc CBR and CB sportbikes, and the new CBR300R that Honda introduced barely a month ago (click HERE for the 2015 Honda CBR300R First Look). With less bodywork and more upright ergos, the new CB300F joins the fully faired CBR300R as the latest addition to Big Red's 2015 small-bike lineup. The newest CB-F has the same 286cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine for power as the CBR300R and comes only in red. Expect to see them in dealerships by Fall with an MSRP of $3,999.
