Honda has added another bike to its 2015 lineup and upped the ante in its small-displacement sportbike battle with Kawasaki. Compared to the 2014 Honda CBR250R single, the new 2015 CBR300R has a longer stroke of 63mm vs. 55mm to increase displacement to 286cc from 249cc. Honda says this is good for a 17-percent boost in peak power compared to the CBR250R. The CBR300R also adds a fuller sport fairing, dual headlights and new exhaust system to give it the appearance of a serious sportbike. New seat shaping and side covers provide an easier reach to the ground, and accessories include a 1-inch lower seat. The 2015 CBR300R will come in Black, Red, Pearl White/Red/Blue, Matte Black Metallic/Yellow and is priced at $4,399 for the standard model and $4,899 for the ABS version. It will be in dealers in August of 2014.

  1. Now if they will up the displacement to 350ccs and keep the price the same, I will buy one, otherwise it ‘s the Ninja 300 for me. I have ridden my son’s 250 Ninja and I love it. I understand the 300 Ninja is even better performance wise and will put larger displacement bikes to shame. It is a great fun bike and a great bike for around town.

  2. How interesting that, try as they might, manufacturers cannot find ways to avoid displacement wars.

    I have discovered that when I find myself constantly pinning the throttle, it’s time for more motorcycle. I topped out at a CB 750 Nighthawk, which no doubt says a lot about my abilities.

    Someone said, “It’s more fun to ride a small bike fast than a big bike slow?”. Fast and slow being a descriptor for the engines peak performance than actual speed. Who can ride a CBR consistently at it’s full potential on the street?
