Since the engine is shared with the Rebel 300, it is a 286 cc unit and is liquid cooled. The engine produces 25.34 bhp, 5 bhp less than the CB300R. The duty transmission is a 6-speed unit.

Honda no longer uses the 16-inch wheels on the Rebel. Instead, the motorcycle now comes with a 19-inch front wheel and a 17-inch rear wheel. The tread pattern on the motorcycle is blocky, but it’s important to note that the CL300 is not a hardcore dirt bike.
