Honda CBR300F

Honda CBR300F

Another surprise release (From my POV anyway) from Honda in Australia is the naked version of the CBR300 series! The CBR300F is based on the newly released CBR300R without much of the fairing and a few hundred dollars off the price tag.

The growing motorcycle trend for learner riders to choose a bike that can be easily converted to a cafe racer. What’s a cafe racer? Well a cafe racer is essentially a motorcycle used for commuting but it has to look retro cool. An older motorcycle is usually the basis for the bike but a growing number choose more modern or new motorcycle to base their creations from purely for reliability!

Unfortunately the CBR300F does not meet the latest trend but it’s probably a pretty decent learner or commuter motorcycle to pick. As a learner class first, it features ABS brakes as standard. Apart from that this is yet any decent motorcycle to choose from when looking for a new bike.

(Personally I’d choose a CB400 through because there are heaps more ‘cafe racer’ style mods that can be made the only problem with the CB400 is the price.)
