Down 13 hp on the KTM RC390, and slightly heavier. I wonder what the price will end up like.

It does look nicer than the 250, though.

I think the more important comparison will be to the Ninja300

Be still my heart. Honda putting out something that people actually want?! What madness is this? Good. Get the flames of competition fired up.

Looks great. The KTM 390 is the one that's really catching my eye though.

15lbs weight reduction is really quite a bit. I've actually thought of going from my CBR500R for this.

I really dont get why everyone is instantly trying to compare this to the KTM instead of the Kawi. The KTM has almost 25% more displacement and assuming this stays similar in price to the 250 the KTM is $2k more expensive. Hardly apples to apples.

Honda isn't trying to compete with KTM, they are trying to compete with Kawasaki.

It has got to be good to see Kawasaki and Honda (and KTM) getting bikes into this segment. Basically, this is where all of the new young riders will come from - simply put, insuring bikes that are larger displacement is much more difficult. I sure hope that Suzuki and Yamaha are listening. Yamaha has a smaller (I think 125) Sportbike which apes the R6 that with a little displacement increase could have an impact in the segment as well.

There is a reason Honda is producing the 500cc bikes again. It is sound worldwide business.

No word on KTM pricing yet, so we'll have to wait and see if they're competing or not.

Anyone know if this is going to be a single cylinder engine like their 250?

So what you're saying is this new 300 might hang with a 15 year old $800 clapped out ninja around the track? Cool.

Right now people shop for a Ninja 300 or CBR500R. Now they get to choose between CBR300R, Ninja 300, and CBR500R. Good job Honda, you're now competing with yourself.

You know firsthand that Kawi made the 250 and 500 at the same time for a couple decades, and that was pretty successful for them.

Did you forget that Honda currently has the CBR250R? Wouldn't that also be competing with the CBR500R? And, the Ninja 300 competes with the 650.
