Eyeing the '19 CB300R
Good afternoon folks. I recently purchased a '15 CBR300R for mountain carving. I wanted a ultra light bike to throw around. I've never been attracted to sport bikes but found the CBR at a decent price and added it to my stable. After my first serious test in the mountains it failed. It has a glaring flaw, the soft front end. What were they thinking? So, I called Racetech to research new springs, emulators, and set up. Looks to be around the $500 mark but it HAS to be done.
Then I saw the '19 CB300R in red. Didn't know the thing existed. It has many advantages over the CBR (to me anyway).
1. Appearance. It's not a poser sport bike. This also means standard seating position which I prefer.
2. Front end. USD forks. That alone makes my CBR trade bait. No need to redo the front end at my expense.
3. Weight. It's 40 friggin pounds lighter!!! Home run! With a little diet she could be sub 300 lbs. I can't believe it weighs that much less.
I will be posting some questions that probably have been asked before but I appreciate all info.
I've been looking for this forum for a couple weeks now. Glad to have found it.
