After much delays, Honda has finally confirmed that their new small-displacement Honda CBR300R will hit the market. The Honda CBR300R will be sold as a 2015 model and you may soon see it in dealerships in August this year.
Honda has confirmed this model for the US market. The bike will give competition to the Ninja 300 and other small-to-middleweight segment.
CBR300R retains the 250R legacy, and uses a stroked-out version of the DOHC engine. The displacement is now 286cc, fueled by a 38mm throttle body and sporting programmed fuel injection.
The new engine churns out 30 horsepower and 20 lb-ft (27.1 Nm) of torque, thanks to a 10.7:1 compression.
