I cant stand digi dashes. I like the combo of analog gauges and digi HUD. but in the interest of cost savings i suspect you're right that CBR300R is going to pilfer the cluster from big brother... Isn't that how it always works ;)

I have a tri colour CBR500RA and I love the digital dash , especially at night , the only thing missing is the gear presently selected icon , which it doesn't have and I am sure the 300 will not have it either .

This photo shows the 300R as having the same instrument cluster as the CBR250R:


I think you're going to find that the CBR300R has much more in common with the CBR250R than there are differences. The rolling chassis of the two bikes are the same. Tires, wheels, suspension, frame, handle bars, foot pegs, etc. are all the same as the CBR250R. The differences are in the body panels, and the stroked engine (which is basically the crankshaft having an increased connecting rod throw, and a shorter connecting rod), and the redesigned exhaust. We don't yet know if the throttle body was increased in size, or if Honda was able to just change the EFI fuel mapping to meet the requirements of the increased displacement.

It's pretty obvious to those of us who own the CBR250R, that Honda did not start with a clean sheet of paper for the CBR300R. What this bike is, is an evolution of the CBR250R.

I prefer analog. I guess I'm just old school though. Even when I use instruments, I much prefer analog to digital.

I actually thought the speedometer would bother me more, but I suppose I don't look at it enough.
