Not to be outdone...CBR300R

Honda CBR300R coming? - Motorcycle news: New bikes - Visordown

According to the comments, the 300R has been selling in Brazil since 2011. So, would be an easy conversion.

Well apparently the CB300R makes 26.5bhp according to the comments in that site. So.... no.

The CB300R has no relationship at all to the CBR250:

Not to be outdone...CBR300R-honda-cb-300r.jpg

It's an air cooled thumper derived of the CB250X, 26hp instead of 24. People should think before starting rumors like that.

But it's a Honda. The brain washed masses will swear it runs on wishes and only unicorn tears come out the exhaust pipe.

I dig the look... But it needs more than 26 hp.

Even if they bored it out to 400cc, it would probably STILL be less powerful than the old kawi 250 . Honda is special that way.

On that note, there used to be a street legal version of the XR400. They oughta just plop that motor into the thing. Only about 30hp, but enough torque to feel faster than it is.

I mean I guess it'd be ok if you lived in the city and used it to commute. I just don't get it. Nnless its really light which makes it quicker than the CBR250R or whatever honda's 250 is. Still no way it will compete with a Ninja 300....

Single-cylinder motors are for dirtbikes. That's where they should stay.

A lot of people would say a 600-700cc single is the best all around motor. Lets you have a very light bike (if they don't cheap out) and although they don't make the same kind of hp as multi-cylinder bike, they make a lot of torque across the board. They also usually get great gas mileage.
EX: KTM690, 60+hp, ~300lbs, 50-60mpg (though not as smooth as some of the others)

Look for Honda NX4 Falcon. It has the engine from a 400cc quad, 30 something hp, slow as molasses, still being manufactured in Brazil and you can get a brand new one in Mexico.

What about NO?

Even high strung thumpers, like the KTM 690 will not be able to touch a low stressed V-Twin like the Suzuki 650 mill on the SVF650 / DL650. The twin will make more power, will be smoother and the bike won't be all that much heavier.

I'd never own a thumper as my only bike, and that is coming from a guy that owns two thumpers.

I honestly cannot imagine Honda putting out a CBR300 with the CB300 thumper mill....

that's just fucking lazy.
