I have limited space in my garage, and if I could have the bike straight on a center-stand, things would be easier.
I've not seen any 3rd party (or from Honda) accessory to add a center stand to the 300R. Anyone knows if they exist? Or maybe the frame would not support that without modifications?

Thanks.

Suggest paddock stand under the rear wheel. This will hold the bike vertically and you don't have to carry it around on the bike like a center stand. It would be quite difficult and expensive to modify the bike for a center stand.

Check out this paddock stand for $40, you would need to add some spools tho.

agree on paddock stand.. mine has adjustable hard rubber
supports, thus place it where you like on swingarm,
no spool supports required..

members cbr250r forum have used various jacks
with various supports, simple and constructed,
to jack up the bike with a car jack or similar..

rear stands can go under things or mount on walls
or hand from ceiling anywhere out of the way..

bear in min criteria in designing this motorcycle
included low weight [lowest in class] which
also accords with other criteria, economy..
basic steel center stands to manage even
our 357lb motorcycle tend to be heavy,
thus reducing economy and [equate to]
reduction of power..

still,, i missed mine until getting
good local made paddock stand..

I picked up a rear stand at Harbor Freight and, with the coupon I clipped from the back of Cycle World, it cost less than $30. Here's a link to Harbor Freight website.
