There have been rumors of this bike coming to the USA this year. Nothing that I have heard of has been confirmed or denied as of yet. Has anyone else heard anything about this?
To me this would be the perfect step up for a newbie like me from the Grom. It is supposed to be a 300 CC bike that is basically in the same setup as the CB500f series bikes. This would probably fall in the $4,000.00-$4,500.00 range and get you up to highway speeds comfortably and get you 75 mpg still. At least that is my dream.
After having the Grom, I loved it, but found that anytime I left town on it, I really wanted to not fight so hard to get above 55 mph. I really didn't like the idea of a road rage Ahole in a SUV breathing down my neck as I slowed down to 45 MPH on a slight hill. I realized the Grom wasn't made for that really, but I had high hopes when I bought it that I could get it there and be comfortable on it for more than 30 minutes.
I would definitely get another one if my only commutes were in town. Right now though, a long distance relationship (2 hours away) is causing me to drive that far every weekend and the Grom just isn't built for that really. I think this CB300f would be perfect.
Btw, I love the sit on top style bikes, which is why I wont just spring for a Rebel (lean back) or a CBR250 (lean forward racer style).
Other than the Suzuki CW250, I can't find any other sit on top style bikes in the 250-400 CC range and $3-4000 price range.
