The Honda CBR300R is a blast in reality beyond just sounding worthy on paper. The Honda CBR300R offers a lot of torque for its size and weight. No doubt, it lacks the power that the Kawasaki Ninja 300 offers, but the torque it does offer makes it worth riding. The Honda CBR300R allows riders to indulge themselves in a riding experience they can never imagine with a bigger bike. The Honda CBR300R is small and agile. In order to bring out the best of the small Honda CBR300R, it requires some skill to do so. Despite being small and lightweight, the Honda CBR300R is able to support a grizzly 30bhp (brake horsepower) motor. Additional features that enhance the Honda CBR300R include an effective suspension system, a reliable single and twin sliding piston at its rear and front caliper, and an ABS (anti-lock braking system).
Despite lacking power in comparison to the Kawasaki Ninja 300, the Honda CBR300R’s engine is deceptively strong and powerful. The strength of the engine is evident from 5000rpm (revolutions per minute) and upwards. From 6000rpm onwards, the bike is on the horizon of a different world. The moment the engine is revved to 7500rpm, it feels surreal. The Honda CBR300R is capable of covering 70mph at approximately 6800rpm. Subsequently, for every 1000rpm, 10mph is generously awarded to its riders until it reaches the limit of 104 mph at 10,500rpm. In order to have higher engine durability, a frequent change in engine oil is highly recommended after every 7,500 miles.
One plus point for the Honda CBR300R would be the inclusion of ABS in this bike. The Kawasaki Ninja 300 which is the Honda CBR300R’s direct rival has ABS too. However, the Honda CBR300R is cheaper than the Kawasaki Ninja 300 by almost a grand. Comparatively to other 125cc (cylinder capacity) bikes in the market without ABS, the Honda CBR300R is still cheaper than some brands. Although cheaper than other brands, the CBR300R is slightly inferior in terms of its brake horsepower. While the Kawasaki Ninja 300, Suzuki SFV650 Gladius, and Yamaha MT-07 are all almost a grand more expensive than the Honda CBR300R, they do offer better brake horsepower than the Honda CBR300R.
