Honda is offering new CRF300L and CRF300L Rally dual-sport machines beginning in March 2021.
The bikes are billed as upgrades to Honda’s smallest dual-sport models, the CRF250Ls, and feature a 15 percent increase in engine displacement, lower weight and increased suspension travel. The Rally also boasts a larger fuel tank. Both bikes are also offered in ABS versions and feature updated bodywork and styling based on Honda’s CRF450R motocross bikes.
“It’s not only good looking, but functional too, with smooth transitions between the bodywork elements, tank, and seat, making it easy to move around on the bike,” Honda says.
The CRF300L is powered by a 286cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine. The bike has a six-speed transmission, a 43mm inverted front fork with 10.2 inches of travel and a Pro-Link single shock in the back with 10.2 inches of travel.
Braking chores are handled by a single 256mm disc with a twin-piston caliper up front and a single 220mm disc in the rear. The front tire is an 80/100-21 while the rear tire is 120/80-18.
Wheelbase: 57.2 inches. Seat height: 34.7 inches. Ground clearance: 11.2 inches. Curb weight: 309 pounds. Fuel Capacity: 2.1 gallons, including a half-gallon reserve.
Color: Red. MSRP: CRF300L $5,249; CRF300L ABS $5,549.
