Honda’s all-new A2 licence-friendly CB300R

Honda have revealed an A2 licence-friendly CB300R that apes the look of the firm’s eye-catching new-for-2018 CB1000R. Like the 1000cc machine, it’s a band-new bike for next year and looks to be a properly smart little number. It promises to be an instant contender for the attention of 250-300cc riders, bridging the gap between 125s and large-capacity machines.

Stripped-back Blade on the way?

Honda’s crazy drag-race Fireblade SP might just point the way for a new naked thriller. Until very recently you might have been forgiven for saying that Honda are a sensible brand and perhaps you could even say they’ve been risk-averse. Then they released the X-Adv and suddenly no-one knew what to think anymore. Looking to next year, we know there’s a naked Blade coming to replace the aging CB1000R and now Honda have showed us this and it’s got us thinking: what if?
