Amazing bike, would definitely recommend as a first bike
Super reliable, made by Honda - one of the best motoring companies. Smooth engine, and everything works so well. Very quick when you want to move, scary to think how much power comes out of just one cylinder. Looks sleek and is very economical - would definitely recommend if you're new to bikes!
Awesome beginner bike
I purchased my cbr300ra (abs) in June last year after getting my L's, a lifelong goal! Plenty of power for a beginner and definitely a bike that gets you hooked on it's handling and power. I also did something out of the ordinary in going for the bright yellow that it comes in, after seeing it on the showroom floor I was decided.
Great starter bike
Having been off motorbikes for close on 20 years, the urge got me to go and get a license and enjoy the freedom of the 2 wheel lifestyle.
As with any purchase of mine I did an obscene amount of research, watched countless hours of youtube videos (so much that the wife actually got motion sickness from watching them with me). After coming up with a budget and deciding that I wanted a new bike to get back into the swing of things I came up with 8 new bikes that were under the 6k mark. Actually 4 bikes but I had the naked and faired versions so t...
Greate first bike if....
you are not interested in your own self esteem and don't really care about how you appear in public.
Let me be honest and say that not ALL but majority of young (new) bike riders DO care how they look on their bikes and what how your bike makes you feel.
When you are in the beginning part of your riding life, you are half scared half excited and can not wait to get out there and start riding in public.
I remember purchasing the 300cc bike ignoring all advise from experienced riders that I will get bored of a 300cc very very quickly.
Great bike for new rides
Had a125 Honda upgraded to the cbr300r the best what a difference,only done 24 kilometres more stable ,power and more comfortable to ride .$54990 on road with abs braking its a bargain and good looking on the eye. For the experienced rider or novice rider this bike has a lot to offer.

Ok motorcycle, but already had 2 recalls in 16 months
I bought the Honda CBR300R SE in late May 2015 and riding it has been all right. Easy to maneuver and ride around, hence one of the good choices if you are just starting to ride motorcycles. It does 28-30 km with one liter of petrol 95, but have in mind that I do not ride fast like some crazy motorcyclists do. Parts are relatively easy to find as well, in case you need it.
Before, I was riding a Kawasaki Ninja 300 and the CBR300R SE feels lighter and a bit less responsive when accelerating. Design is similar, but I would go for the Ninja, if...I had to buy a motorcycle only for this reason. The major issue I had with the CBR300R was that in only 16 months, I had two recalls to do. It says that the engine may stall while riding and this may cause my death. Well, not extremely encouraging receiving these messages. The problem is that, in the first recall, I incurred taxi expenses to go from the dealer to my workplace and return. Now, it will happen again when I will leave my motorcycle in the dealer to be serviced and there is a note saying that it may be necessary to leave the motorcycle there overnight, which will only make things worse. Honestly, I do not remember having any recalls with my Ninja. Anyway, keep these details in mind.
My First Motorcycle
I have owned many scooters but never ridden a motorcycle. So even though I have a full license, I am a noob to gears and the rear foot brake.
I purchased the bike in Nov 2014 as a Demo for $5600 with 82 km on it. This models comes with ABS.
Appearance: The bike looks lovely in red and seems to be a bigger bike from distance. It has all the looks you need.
Petrol consumption: You'll get around 500 Km on a single tank depending on your riding conditions.
Handling: The bike is easy to ride and has exceptional handling. It is ideal for a new r...
My first motorcycle
I have bought this bike for $6800 out the door from the dealer.
The CBR300rr has given me a great experience to learn riding it in all conditions; dry, wet, windy, in the wind and I think they're the reasons why:
I'm 1m 63.
The motorcycle comes with ABS.
The seat is narrow at the waist.
The seat height is 785 mm and changed to the seat pad to an aftermarket one down to 780 mm.
When I'm at a stop, I can only put one foot at the time on either side and I need to lean slightly on that side as a stand because of my height. ...This motorcycle is great for riders who are my size and if you are taller, then you will definitely enjoy it as a learner. Speed: it does not have what I have sought but it is fast. The take-off is fast and has the power concentrated in the lower rpm. From 0-60, it is achieved quick in first gear (do not do that because you would feel the engine in between your legs, I wanted to try) and once in second gear I keep the throttle on then third gear before I'm pushing to 80-90kmh and that is before I know it. The CBR300rr rides very well on the highways and in the city because it has a great handling and has a good stability. When I go around tight corners it feels that I won't fall off the bike and it comes back upright with almost no acceleration. A full tank takes me almost 402 km and it costs me at the most $23 on octane 98 of the way I ride (I wanted to try to empty the tank but do not do this).
