New rider? Read this guide and find the bike that's right for you!

Spotlight: Honda CB300F

The “new” beginner standard, is what everyone is calling the 2015 Naked CB300F. From the smoothness of the engine braking, clutch action and suspension to the significant reduction in vibration due to the counterbalanced crankshaft; this bike is the ultimate necessity for beginner motorcycle riders. The CB300F shines as a commuter with a 17% increase in power than the CBR250R.  New riders will benefit from the upright position as it allows for a more relaxed state as opposed to a sport bike stance where it can make any new rider nervous as they cower forward over the gas tank. It has been dubbed the “perfect learning tool” by various online review articles. Combined with it’s impressive 60 mpg fuel consumption, the bike appeals, heavily,  as a perfect daily commuter. With it’s reduction in weight and price, I can’t see any other competitive beginner bikes being matched up as an equal to the Honda CB300F. Here are some specs:
