Honda Thailand has quietly introduced the Honda Rebel 300 for the Thai market. The small capacity cruiser, with a single-cylinder, liquid-cooled 286cc engine (the engine is also used for the CB300F and CBR300R).
The price for the Honda Rebel 300 is expected to be a bit higher than the Honda CB300F

The Honda Rebel 300 is a single-cylinder 286cc four-stroke engine that will always produce more vibration than a two-cylinder engine. But I have to say that between 80 and 100km/h I didn’t experience any vibration that I would classify as annoying.
Of course for everybody, feeling are very personal, and what is annoying for me doesn’t have to be annoying for somebody else. With that in mind I would check with your Honda dealer if the vibration you’re experiencing is normal. Maybe something is wrong with the engine which causes the annoying vibration...

Honda usually gets things right, which surprised me when looking at this bike and wanting to buy. BUT.... The front fender is extremely short causing mud and water to slash up, same with the rear fender. Serious vibration between 80 Kilometers to 100. Water cooling system looks quite ugly. The price floored me as the same bike in America starts at 130,000 Baht but in U.S. dollars. Given other bike sold in America & Thailand, this bike should be selling for about 100 K Baht. I've had Honda bikes and love their quality & service at some shops ...but, all and all ...Honda needs to go back to the drawing board on this one ....I'm looking at other bikes to buy.
The Honda Rebel 300 is good design, it has some points that could have been done better. But Honda also made clear that the 2017 Honda Rebel 300 and Rebel 500 were motorcycles that could be customized endlessly.
Honda has themselves an impressive aftermarket customize parts catalog. Also third party parts manufacturers are very quick with special parts for the Rebel 300 and Rebel 500.
The truth about front fenders is that hardly any from fender on a modern motorcycle prevents mud and water to slash up. According shorter front fender fits with the whole Bobber style that the new Honda Rebel 300 and Rebel 500 are following.
What is ugly, I can remember the first time I was introduced to the Kawasaki Versys, and my holiness how ugly it was in my eyes. But on the other hand I also loved the handling and basically everything else about that motorcycle ‘it was just genius’. Now knowing how popular the Kawasaki Versys has become we can assume that it’s not all about how things look…
Do a test ride, and, if you can afford it go for the Honda Rebel 500…
