* Disclaimer: Everything stated in this post is pure “speculation”.
No sign of a CBR300R upgrade on the horizon then? I thought Honda might have been working on a Nina 400 beater! It seems to be all about the neo sports range at present.
Thats the CB500 already. CBR300 is a single compared to the Ninja 400 twin
Ninja has 36kW vs 35KW for CBR but Ninja has 60lbs lighter curb weight so through the gears the Ninja should be quicker.
Both are A2 bikes so should be fairly similar. Specs according to Honda/Kawasaki in Sweden:
CBR500R -17 35kW 194kg
Ninja 400 -19 33,4kW 168kg
So seems the Kawasaki hasa slight power/weight advantage. Curious how those 72cc extra in the honda makes a difference. I agree the Honda should go to fat camp and loose 40kg 😉 and perhaps there’s some more power potential left if ditching that A2 target?
Yeah the North American variants are the full 36kW and the European/UK models are restricted for A2 like you said. Also some South East Asian countries like the Phillipines get the full power model but Australia and NZ are restricted as well for the LAMS laws. I used to have a CBR300 so was keen to see if Honda was going to do something with this bike. Like add 15 HP Lol.
