The CBR250R introduced many people to the joys of riding smaller supersport machines and its followers are dedicated. Building on the success of the original platform, the CBR300R adds aggressive new styling and increased power and torque throughout the rev range. Retained are the 250's excellent mass centralization, aggressive geometry and functional ergonomics, but an improved power-to-weight ratio enhances performance across the board. An 8 mm stroke increase gives a roughly 17% increase in power while the light and manageable weight ensures riders can take full advantage of the increased performance. The single cylinder engine design also has a number of advantages over twin cylinder competitors. Not only does the advanced engine reduce overall weight and size, improving manoeuvrability, but it simplifies maintenance, improves fuel economy due to reduced drag and lowers operating cost. Wrapped around the heavily revised engine is all new bodywork that takes its styling cues directly from the razor sharp CBRRR. The CBR300R now looks every bit as aggressive as its larger siblings and the family resemblance is well earned.
