aint that the TRUTH!It’s a great time to get into motorcycling. Just a few years ago there were only a few small-bore bikes to choose from—and some of them weren’t very compelling—but in recent years the low-buck beginner-bike category has undergone a serious revival. Now there are lots of appealing options to choose from.
WHAT’S the smallest sum of money you have to spend to get a proper, do-it-all Japanese motorcycle? The answer may be £4,299 on Honda’s new CBR300R.
Yes, you could get a Suzuki Inazuma 250 for less (about £800 less, in fact), but with only 24hp, would you really want to ride from London to Manchester?
Nice write up Fanatic, congrats on clocking up 1000mls in the saddle.Honestly, I'm very happy with the amount of power and torque which can be felt when riding this bike. Yes, my expectations were very low anyway, so that may be a reason. The torque can really be felt in stop & go city riding, and the passing power is incredible.
The sound of the bike: It has a very macho sound and sensation when accelerating from lower RPM's. When I take it up to redline, it transforms into a very race oriented sound which is amazing.
I get a lot of looks and comments from people. The bike definitely looks faster than it is.
The bike creates a lot of vibration when taking it to higher RPM's. Almost feels like the motor is going to explode out of the chassis. But I like it, and it's a raw feeling.
