Honda introduced the bike in November at Milan’s EICMA motorcycle show but no announcement was made as to whether or not the CB300R would make it onto American soil. But today Honda said that it will.
“We’re excited to announce that the CB300R will be hitting U.S. showroom floors this year alongside the recently announced CB1000R, with which this new model shares its Neo-Sports Café styling,” said Lee Edmunds, American Honda’s Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications. “Honda is committed to offering customers a wide range of models that offer solid performance but are also rich in character and tap into the emotional element of riding. Motorcycling is an exercise in enjoyment, and with the CB300R, that feeling is now accessible to an even wider range of riders, with the added benefit of increased performance.”
The CB300R is powered by a 286cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine housed in an entirely new tubular and pressed-steel frame. It also boasts premium features like an available inertial measurement unit-based ABS, LCD display, and full LED lighting.
MSRP is $4649 for the standard and $4949 for the ABS model. They are schedule to appear on showroom floors in July.
