About the Honda CB300F

With an inseam-friendly seat height, upright seating position, low curb weight, and an easy to manage power delivery, the CB300F is perfectly aimed at fledging riders, with styling that doesn’t label it as such.

The small displacement engine requires a generous hand on the throttle. With a 286cc single-cylinder engine, albeit one that is liquid cooled, DOHC and fuel-injected, and Moto3-inspired. Power off idle is soft, and the short gearing of the CB300F’s six-speed transmission.

Honda’s little trainer starts out on 17-inch, cast rims, and nearly symmetrical hoops with a 110/70 up front, and a 140/70 tire in back. Honda gets a pass for only running a single, 296 mm disc with a twin-pot caliper up front, and a 220 mm disc with a single-piston binder in back.

Right-side-up front forks come with 4.65 inches of travel and blackout fork sliders to match the rims. The rear monoshock works on a progressive-link system, provides 4.07 inches of travel and sports a five-slot, preload adjuster.

A single-downtube, stressed engine frame sets the stage for the various features, and gives the CB300F the contemporary UJM look, which is to say a sporty standard. The steering head is set at 25.3-degrees, and the trail measures out at 3.9-inches long.
