The 300R’s engine is stronger than you might expect. From around 5000rpm it starts to go, with another lift at 6000rpm and then a strong surge at 7500rpm. Revs are rewarded, but they aren’t an essential part of the show. The 35cc hike over the old 250 makes a big difference. The CBR300R really holds its own and is an enjoyable ride.
