2016 Honda CB300F

The Power of One

The best part of any motorcycle has never been the bells and whistles. It’s been the freedom and the exhilaration that comes with riding. And in fact, plenty of riders feel that less is more, that a simple bike done right gives you the purest riding experience of all.

That’s one of the reasons we built the CB300F. It’s a great machine, loaded with features, but in a lighter, smaller, simpler package. It’s a great choice for the urban rider, as a first bike, or really for anyone who wants a great motorcycle.

Like our CBR300R, the CB300F uses a totally up-to-date single-cylinder engine. The fuel injection system and electric start make it convenient, but the best feature of all may be its combination of enthusiastic power delivery along with awesome fuel efficiency. Practical meets performance—it’s not an either / or proposition with the CB300F—you get to have your cake and eat it too. And with its low price, you’ll be able to afford lots of cake.

Standard Features

  • PASSENGER READY: A separate passenger seat, integrated grab rail, and standard passenger footpegs mean you can take a friend along when you go riding–another example of the CB300F's versatility.
  • UNDER-SEAT STORAGE: Removing the rear passenger seat provides a lockable area to throw a map, gloves, or a spare set of sunglasses.
  • NARROW SEAT AND LOW SEAT HEIGHT: A low 30.7-inch seat height does more than help make sure the CB300F fits a wide range of riders. It makes it easier to put your feet down at stoplights and in parking lots—a big confidence builder. Plus, we’ll offer a Honda Genuine Accessory seat that’ll lower seat height even further!
  • PRO-LINK® REAR SUSPENSION: The CB300F uses a single-shock preload- adjustable rear suspension that not only gives you a smooth ride, but helps enhance handling as well, just as on some of our larger sport models.
  • COUNTERBALANCE SHAFT: Because it features a counterbalancer, the CB300F engine is a smooth runner. You get the narrow overall width and power advantages of a single along with the smoothness of a multi-cylinder bike.
  • SINGLE-CYLINDER ENGINE: A single is the perfect choice for a bike like the CB300F. It's light, simple, provides excellent fuel efficiency and features a broad powerband with plenty of low-revving torque—just what you want in your first motorcycle.
  • FUEL INJECTION: Fuel injection means the CB300F starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhance performance and fuel efficiency.
  • CLEAN, OPEN DESIGN: Less is more with a CB300F. The minimal bodywork gives this machine a clean, open naked styled sport bike look that’s not only cool but that helps make it even lighter.
  • DISC BRAKES: The CB300F features front and rear hydraulic discs for excellent stopping power and brake feel. The single front 296 mm and 220 mm rear hydraulic discs helps keep things simple and lowers unsprung weight, too.
  • MULTIFUNCTION DIGITAL INSTRUMENTATION: The CB300F’s digital gauges with analog tachometer provide vital riding information in a styled, hi-tech instrumentation package featuring digital speedometer, fuel gauge, coolant temp, tripmeter / odometer and clock.
  • EMISSIONS: Meets current EPA standards. Models sold in California meet current CARB standards and may differ slightly due to emissions equipment.
