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.
