Introducing The Neo-Sports Café 2020 Honda CB300R ABS

The missing link between a small-capacity sports bike and smart naked street machine, the 2020 Honda CB300R ABS styles itself as a Neo-Sports Café that will revolutionize urban mobility. Small in nature, but big in performance, the CB300R is an accessible, stylish, and fun motorcycle to prowl the city streets on.

Underneath the futuristic and minimalistic exterior, the 2020 CB300R ABS features a compact yet potent 286cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine—the very same unit you find on the performance-focused CBR300R—which offers a modest 30.7 horsepower and 20.2 lb-ft of peak torque. With six gears to play with, power is easily delivered when and where you need it most, making for strong and confident acceleration.

Despite the stripped-down nature of the CB300R, it comes packed with advanced features and unexpected surprises. The Honda’s hardware includes a lightweight frame that is manufactured from a mixture of tubular and pressed steel, 41mm USD front forks for comfortable damping, high-quality Nissin disc brakes, LED lighting and LCD instrumentation, and ABS as standard.

The 2020 Honda CB300R is only available in a stylish Matte Pearl Blue finish, complemented with blacked-out bodywork with silver accents.

2020 Honda CB300R Features

ENGINEERING

STANDARD ABS

Our Anti-Lock Braking System (standard on the 2020 CB300R) can be a big help in making controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions, like on wet pavement or other compromised surfaces. It’s a great choice whether you’re using your new bike as a commuter or just riding it for fun, since it helps you stop with added confidence.

BLACKED-OUT HARDWARE

Check out the blacked-out hardware; subtle touches like these complement the CB300R’s traditional-meets-modern Neo-Sports Café styling.

EFFICIENT DESIGN

The CB300R’s engine is designed with a minimum number of moving parts. Details like low-friction piston rings, high-density core radiator and iridium spark plug help increase fuel efficiency. Thanks in part to the weight-saving measures and the intake layout, initial acceleration has been improved by 4%.

LCD INSTRUMENTS

The CB300R’s lightweight, full-function LCD display adds a premium feel. It’s 60-percent thinner than previous designs, and gives you readouts for engine rpm, speed, and fuel level.

LED LIGHTING PACKAGE

Another perfect example of classic styling with a modern touch, the CB300R features an all-LED lighting package, yet still sports a timeless round headlight lens. The LED taillight is the thinnest ever mounted on a Honda motorcycle!

POWERFUL BRAKES

The CB300R’s radial-mount four-piston Nissin front brake caliper clamps down onto a 296mm floating disc to provide optimum stopping power.

HANDLING

LIGHT, STRONG STEEL CHASSIS

The concept behind a Neo-Sports Café machine strives for a perfect combination of handling, power, and athletic comfort. Great handling starts with a superior chassis, which is why the CB300R uses special frame construction designed to be both light and strong.

INVERTED FRONT FORK

The CB300R’s 41mm inverted fork offers a smooth ride with compliant damping. The supple spring rate is just right for a bike this size.

LIGHTWEIGHT ALUMINUM WHEELS

Unsprung weight—the tires, wheels, and brakes—are super-important in a sportbike. The CB300R’s lightweight aluminum wheels are a critical part of the bike’s responsive handling. Plus, they look great too.

LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION

Since it’s over 30 pounds lighter than our own CB300F, the 2020 CB300R’s user-friendly 317-pound curb weight means this bike handles well, and is easier to balance at stoplights or in parking lots.

PERFECT BALANCE

The CB300R features a balanced 49.6/50.4 front/rear weight bias. That means you’re set up for unmatched sport riding, combining rear-wheel traction, front-end grip, and balanced braking forces.

TUNED STEEL SWINGARM

In addition to the CB300R’s chassis, the steel swingarm is designed to provide high longitudinal rigidity and control torsion without being harsh or heavy. This means you get confidence-inspiring feel and feedback, especially while cornering.

STYLE

NEO-SPORTS CAFÉ STYLE

Taking its styling cues from our CB1000R, the CB300R offers a fresh, contemporary take on the modern streetbike. Plus, the light weight and upright seating make it a blast to ride.

COMFORTABLE RIDING POSITION

The CB300R’s 31.5-inch seat height puts you in an engaged, athletic riding position. You can sit up and see what’s going on around you, and you’re ready to instantly respond to the road—just like your bike.

COUNTERBALANCE SHAFT

Because it features a counterbalancer, the CB300R 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.
