2022 Honda CBR300R: The Square One Sportbike

Perhaps you’re new to motorcycling and arent comfortable with splurging on a larger displacement motorcycle model, but still want to retain many of the great features that we have all come to know and expect from modern motorcycles… The Honda CBR300R is the perfect starting point from a reliability and rideability standpoint.

No model lineup would be complete without some form of a low displacement full form factor model for beginners and riders seeking a small/easily ridable model. The CBR300R prides itself on being nimble, economical, and still fast enough to excite even intermediate riders.

Honda understands that not every customer looking for a 300cc motorcycle is a beginner, often times intermediate riders are even found shopping for low displacement Japanese motorcycles purely to save some extra cash on a new model; meaning it was important for Honda to ensure this bike was still capable despite its low power figures and price tag.

Speaking of capabilities, the Honda CBR300R is powered by a 286cc liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine mounted to a six-speed transmission. Its styling cues were carried over directly from the rest of the CBR family (including the CBR1000R), which allows to balance great style into its ergonomic and capable package.

The 2022 Honda CBR300R starts at $4,899 USD / NA CAD

2022 Honda CBR300R Features



A single is the perfect choice for a bike like the CBR300R. It’s light, simple, fuel efficient and features a broad powerband with plenty of low-revving torque—just what you want in your first motorcycle, but geared for comfortable cruising at highway speeds.

Fuel injection means the CBR300R starts right up, even in cold weather. Compared to a carbureted bike, it also helps reduce emissions and enhance performance and fuel efficiency.



A low 30.7-inch seat height does more than help make sure the CBR300R 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.



Because it features a counterbalancer, the CBR300R 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.

The CBR300R’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.

Our anti-lock braking system—available on the CBR300R ABS—can be a big help in making controlled stops in less-than-ideal conditions, like on wet pavement or when there’s sand or other debris on the road. It’s the perfect 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.

The CBR300R features a 296mm front and 220mm rear hydraulic disc for excellent stopping power and brake feel.



The CBR300R features full-cowl supersport styling and dual headlights, increasing aero efficiency and carrying the styling cues from our CBR-RR series.



The CBR300R uses a single-shock preload-adjustable rear suspension that not only gives you a smooth ride but helps enhance handling as well, like some of our larger sport models.
