The Honda CBR300R
Honda recently announced the price that it will sell the CBR300R for in the UK. It has been priced at £4,299, and that model will come with ABS standard.
UK customers will be able to order the new Honda CBR300R from the 4th of August, and deliveries of the bike will commence at the end of the month.
One of the biggest things going for Honda is affordability. This is probably one of the reasons why Honda decided to price the CBR300R at a price that is £900 less than the Kawasaki Ninja 300.
That decision also makes sense since the Ninja 300 cranks out 34.95 hp while the CBR300R only creates 30.4 hp. On the measure of displacement the Ninja 300 also out does the CBR300R with 296 cc compared to the CBR300R's 286cc. I guess 300cc is just a nice round number, not intended to actually give you an idea of the displacement of the bike you are buying.
Do you think people will be swayed more by power output or pricing when deciding which bike to purchase?
