0 4916

Honda unveils its 2015 Honda CBR300R 300cc starter bike as well as an updated CRF450R and CRF250R.

Over the past few years, Honda has introduced dozens of new powersports products. And this latest introduction of 2015 models keeps that momentum rolling with the addition of a new sport bike, significant updates to the CRF450R and CRF250R motocross machines, and the return of popular off-road products.

2015 Honda CBR300R


Honda sees the new 2015 CBR300R as a great beginner bike that will also appeal to experienced riders. Based on our good experience with a long-term CBR250R, we’d have to agree. Further aiding the new CBR300R in this mission is a full fairing and dual headlights, which are evocative of the CBR1000RR, plus a new exhaust designed to enhance performance and create a throaty sound.

Great for beginners and experienced motorcyclists alike, the new CBR300R now packs a 300-class engine that delivers a 17-percent boost in peak power compared to the CBR250R. With a full sport fairing, dual headlights and new exhaust system, the CBR300R takes its styling cues from Honda’s larger-displacement CBR® series.

Other details on the 2015 Honda CBR300R include a new seat and side covers that make for an easier reach to the ground, plus an available accessory seat that reduces seat height by an inch. Genuine Honda accessories—each backed by a one-year warranty—include a carbon-look chain guard, chrome bar ends, a carbon-look lower fairing, color-matched seat cowls, a carbon-look front fender, a rear seat bag, a carbon-fiber tank pad, and a bike cover.


New seat shaping and side covers provide an easier reach to the ground. With more power, nimble handling, affordable price and low operating cost, the CBR300R makes every ride a fun one. Colors: Black, Red, Pearl White/Red/Blue, Matte Black Metallic/Yellow;


“We’re unveiling some exciting new models along with returning favorites,” said Lee Edmunds, Manager of Motorcycle Marketing Communications. “Our motocross bikes incorporate more race-proven technology for added performance, and the new CBR300R is a fun and affordable option for street riders. We’re also rolling out the CRF150R/CRF150R-Expert, CRF230F, CRF150F and CRF125F/CRF125F Big Wheel that have proven to be so popular over the years, plus the unique Rincon for ATV enthusiasts.”
